In a way this is a forgotten Yes album. Disc 2 01. This is a nice way to close the album.
Order of the Universe short edit 06. The band pursued an amazing career, They went through a dark period in the 80's Under Wraps and Rock Island are particularly disposable , but they released their amazing and underrated in sputnik album called Roots to Branches 1995 , which is in the vein of their classic stuff. It's far from being a great album, but it's not a bad album. For "The Meeting" only Anderson, Wakeman and Colbeck appear on stage, with Wakeman playing the piano and Colbeck the backing keyboards.
Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe - Ander...
Gone were the radio- friendly, "Big Generator"-type, tracks; this was a full-blown return to the soaring YES epics of old; with the very first lines of the album boldly stating Jon's intent to once again set his music free from the enslaving corporate bonds which had held it for so long. Unlike the live recording featured on the album An Evening Of Yes Music Plus, which was released on double CD in 1993, the present show from the same tour was not released at the time but has been sitting in the archives for years before it finally saw the light of day in 2010.
It's an uplifting piece with some classic Howe fills and 80's sounding keyboard bits, but the main suprise or I must say rather a shock, is the electronic drum sound, especially the snare, that divided opinions then and to my mind now as well.
The quartet of Jon Anderson, Bill Bruford, Rick Wakeman, and Steve Howe released this single in 1989 to promote the album they recorded together that year a Yes album in all but name. Howe also used a lot of electric and acoustic guitars Fenders, Gibsons, and maybe others , a pedal steel guitar, plus a mandolin and a vachalia.
Saying that, this is a wonderful track with a big sound that would fit perfectly into a live setting, the only thing I would have loved to hear would be this track recorded without synthetic drums, then again, maybe that is partially why this track works.

This is the best election for a closer and leaves the door open for a new Yes' adventure. The video starts with Jon Anderson walking to the stage from the back of the seats of the Amphitheatre, shaking hands with some members of the audience and walking to the stage and singing at the same time for his solo medley accompanied from the stage by Milton McDonald on acoustic guitar and Julian Colbeck on keyboards.
The feeling of the album is uplifting and happy. Themes 5: Hence, the new band had to settle for calling itself Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe, although they advertised each show on their supporting tour as "An Evening of Yes Music Plus. It has its moments, but if there's a bad track on the album and there really isn't , then this is it.
Part two has the same piano led back bone as 'Long Distance Runaround' and the oboe sounding key lines are plain nicely. I agree with "Tormato" too.
Three songs were omitted from the album:
