3 stars Take a dash of Asia, add in ELP and you will have a good idea of what this album is like. Dave Kilminster and John Young join John Wetton and Carl Palmer for this enjoyable romp through classic numbers from both bands. Of the ten songs, two are solos, and of the other eight three are by ELP (including a much more rockified version of "Fanfare"), and three are from the debut Asia album. Given that John and Carl have been playing together on and off for years, and that Dave is actually a member of John's touring band then it is little surprise that these guys play well together, and although the major glory days are behind them, songs as good as these still deserve to be heard. I am not sure if they plan to tour again, or record together, so if you want to be able to hear yet again how they sounded on tour I 1999 then I suggest you get this now. Although it has been released on ELP's old Manticore label I see that this is now released through Voiceprint.
