CD/DVD Releases: ''An Evening Of Yes Music Plus'' Is Back

Posted on Friday, January 12 @ 04:25:54 UTC by nightowl

The year was 1989 when former Yes-men Jon Anderson, Bill Bruford, Rick Wakeman, and Steve Howe, longing to rekindle the magic that defined Yes music in the 70's, joined forces to record and release a new album. Dubbed simply Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe, they released the album to critical acclaim as fans around the globe watched in wide-eyed amazement at this most unlikely turn of events.

And as if a new studio album wasn't enough, ABWH set course upon a breathtaking world tour titled, An Evening Of Yes Music Plus. The setlist for the ABWH tour was a Yes fan's dream, including "Starship Trooper," "Heart Of The Sunrise," "Close To The Edge," "And You And I," "Roundabout," and other Yes classics.

Fans were also treated to tracks from the new ABWH album, including "Brother Of Mine," "Themes," "The Meeting," "Birthright," and more, along with stunning solo performances from the four principals. A truly amazing tour, An Evening Of Yes Music Plus was captured on video and released as a CD and VHS in 1994. Sadly, these products were only available for a short time before disappearing, seemingly forever.

But now An Evening Of Yes Music Plus is available in all its glory. You can once again -- or perhaps for the very first time -- experience the splendor and majesty that was the ABWH tour. These fan favorites are each re-released in gorgeous double CD and DVD disc Digipak packaging, complete with the original Roger Dean artwork. Both the CD and DVD package also contains a beautiful photo booklet with images of Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, and Howe as they performed. And for a limited time, the limited edition DVD boasts a very special bonus: The second disc contains original ABWH promotional video clips released in 1989 as a VHS titled In The Big Dream. In The Big Dream boasts video shorts for "Brother Of Mine," "Order Of The Universe," and "Quartet (I'm Alive)," and is sure to be a hit with fans and collectors the world over.

But you'll want to act immediately. There will only be 2,000 copies of the double DVD Digipak produced, and of those the first 1,000 will be autographed by legends Jon Anderson, Bill Bruford, Rick Wakeman, and Steve Howe. There will also be 2,000 copies of An Evening Of Yes Music Plus available as a standard double DVD package (non-autographed). Once quantities of the Digipak and standard double DVD packages are exhausted, An Evening Of Yes Music Plus will become a single DVD package, and will no longer contain the limited edition bonus material, In The Big Dream.

So don't delay & recapture the magic by joining Jon, Bill, Rick, and Steve for an evening of Yes music plus.
