3 stars This record from the Ladder Tour brings great memories to me. This tour and this line-up was the one when I saw Yes live for the very first (and the only one up to this day for my disgrace). They came to my country for two shows on 99 that I will never forget, so I bought this double CD (and of course de VHS) just to have a sounding and visual testimony of my Yes-experience (being the only difference Awaken instead of Close to the Edge)

Talking about sound quality, this record stands side by side with the best live CD's from YES. The song selection is a well balanced mixture between old and new (at the time) material. The band sounds as good as it gets, but in my humble opinion Jon's voice was not in a good shape that night, sounding a little bit hoarse. I suppose that they couldn't film other concert due to contractual stuff so they decided a go (by the way Jon's voice was superb on "my" concert")

Billy Sherwood played all Trevor Rabin's solos just like him, freeing Steve from that "burden", I guess. (Even though now Steve plays TR songs without regrets)

Well I give 3 stars and not 4 given Jon's singing.
