4 stars WOW! What a great show man ...!!! I fully agree with what colleague collaborator, Erik, has just put it in this site. Yes, I also watched the laser disc version dated back years ago through my friend's collection. But, when I purchased this DVD in Singapore during YES second leg tour in September 25, 2003, I did feel the same way in terms of critics about this DVD. It's probably by the time I purchased from one of the stores around Peninsula Plaza, I was fully aware that I would not get the quality sound as good as, say DTS version or any later digital technology concert. I expected not a good quality one because it was recorded in the seventies. But, the picture quality is excellent.

I was so amazed with this live performance in many ways. The members were still really young and handsome. They played their respective instruments skillfully and attractively. I could see how Keith Emerson stage acts have colored the show in an energetic way. Carl Plamer demonstrated his powerful drumming. Greg Lake performance reminds me to those days when he was with King Crimson. I could bear my emotions anymore when the band performed "The Sage" with Keith at stage left (audience's view), Carl at back center and Greg Lake with his acoustic guitar at stage right. He palyed his acoustic guitar wonderfully while he was singing. The melody is so nice man ...!!! I have always loved this track - be it on CD or on this DVD set.

The reason of not giving this DVD a full five star is I think because of too long solo on organ / moog by Keith that when it reaches qute sometime it becomes so boring and even annying. Overall, it's an excellent live set. Keep on proggin' ..!!!

Yours progressively,


Gatot | 4/5 |
