It would be great if it also included Tony Kaye... but as far as I understand, it doesn't.

Tony Kaye was just a bit player in the Flash saga, he wasn't a formal member of the band.  

Banks later works are very much underappreciated - he developed a shred style similar to Steve Vai, and fused this technique with some good progressive music.  

His contributions to the "Days Between Stations" CD In Extremis are very nice, I suggest PA folks to check this one out!  

Bank's longtime friend and manager, George Mizer, tells me that there will be further archival releases soon.  I think Billy Sherwood will be instrumental in producing and editing these.  

Check out Pete's playing in this 1993 cut from "Instinct" (Peter plays all instruments except for some keys).  This stuff ROCKS!
