5 stars When I look back to the eighties, when I was a fresh Kid, one of my prime reminiscents is this video ASIA in ASIA, featuring four of my real prog heroes, playing together in a special way..that really never repeated..Greg Lake (one of the greatest voices of rock history) was there just to replace a betrayed and fired John Wetton, which would recover his place on the band, soon after this concert..but Greg Lake's work on this was memorable, he got all the repertoire in a few weeks and toured with his old friends to perform wonderfully in such a most real fun concerts I've ever watched to! Obviously Palmer, Downes and Howe also did a great job.. But it was a real fun to see Lake playing hs powerful bass lines and singing in Asia. All songs were fresh by that time, extracted from first two albums, highlights of the concert were Open your eyes, Wildest Dreams (Palmer's solo) and Time again and The Smile has Left Your Eyes (this version was really good, beated only by Asia's Mockba concert version). I was just stunned by that time, because i was wandering what an amalgam of my two favourite Prog groups (ELP and YES) could offer for the hard rock in the future...But this line up, didn't last too long to produce new material...My rating is 4,6 in 5 possible
