Review by erik neuteboom
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars He's still so nervous and tense before and during every gig but his stunning, unique and seminal guitarplay incorporates rock, classical, symphonic, jazz, ragtime, blues and perhaps I forget a few musical styles! On this excellent CD you can enyoy the variety of Steve Howe his excellent guitarplay, from the virtuosic ""Meadow rag" and the delicate "Concerto in 2nd movement to the wonderful "Surface tension" and "Mood for a day" (both on Spanish guitar). Also included are "Excerpts from Tales.." and "Roundabout" and great renditions from "Ram"" and "Clap". If you like acoustic guitar or you want to enjoy Mr. Howe his skills on this instrument (and some electric guitar), THIS CD IS YOURS!! By the way, the beautiful artwork is by ... Roger Dean, say no more!

3 stars Contrary to the listing here, this is not a studio album. This is a recording from Steve Howe's 1993 solo tour. And a fine show it was.

The songs showcase Steve Howe's unique style, blending classical, flamenco and bluegrass primarily with just about any other guitar styling that Howe feels like playing. And he can do it alll well.

As the title would indicate, most of the songs are played on acoustic guitars, although a few are performed on a Steinberger electric. The electric pieces are played without guitar effects, giving them a close to acoustic feel as well.

The most proggy song here is obviously the Excerpts from Tales from Topographic Oceans, where Howe plays small but nice pieces from each of the songs from that album. More Yes selections include the obvios: The Clap and Mood For A Day. On Roundabout, he strangely chooses to sing the harmony part he always sings with the band, giving it an odd sound.

For guitar fans, a must. For prog fans, a good disk to own.

4 stars In every Yesshow one of the most expected moments is Steve Howe's astounding solos... now imagine an entire hour of live Howe solo!!! And that is precisely what you'll get with this album which, at the same time, is an excellent introduction to his solo work. Featuring tracks from almost all of his albums to date (Beginnings, The Steve Howe Album, Turbulence and The Grand Scheme Of Things) and pieces by Yes and GTR.

As other reviewers pointed out, this album, as Howe's career, is really eclectic by featuring a really big array of styles including country, rock, classical, jazz, blues, ragtime and lots others joined together by his really particular style of playing. The track-list was tastefully selected and arranged with almost no interludes between songs, so the performance flows very naturally. And as the title announces, the instrumentation is not necessarily acoustic since although most of the album is dominated by acoustic guitars there are some electric moments.

A thing that I really loved is the inclusion of Yes classics outside Howe's typical solos with the band such as The Clap and Mood For A Day. Yes' guitar virtuoso performs Tales From Topographic Oceans (presented as a medley) and Roundabout, both rearranged for solo guitar with a very magnificent and simply beautiful final sound, but not only that, Steve reminds us that he is one of Yes' singers (backing vocals in every single album he participated in) with a very apt vocal performance.

If you like solo guitar playing and/or are a Yes fan and haven't listened much of Howe's solo albums, this is for you! Simply amazing and plain beautiful...

5 stars This is steve Howe's best solo album an it features lots of short songs that are from his one man performances.

4 stars This really is a SOLO album; Steve plays all by himself but make no mistake, this album would've been spoilt by backing tapes or musicians. Steve was very brave to perform this set like this, but it shows just why the man has won so many awards over the years. He truly shines on this album, and ... (read more)
