Still ploughing through the various YES live releases throughout the decades and I wasn't expecting much of this one, but .....

YES - 'Union Live'

Image

.... it's rather good.

The 90's reunion 8-piece lineup of: Anderson, Bruford, Howe, Kaye, Rabin, Squire, Wakeman & White all playing impeccably and doing enthusiastic versions of old, new and solo material. I thought this was going to be a jumbled ego-clash, however it has more of a party atmosphere and is nicely recorded as well.

I recall seeing that line up at the NEC with a revolving stage.
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way

Abbey Road. Some belters on this. Something was the first dance at my wedding. My other favourites are (in order) I want you, Mean Mr Mustard/polythene pam/ she came in thru the bathroom window, come together, the last four tracks. Hate any songs with Ringo singing :hand:
