Third watching. Think I have seen most of both dvd's.
Jon seems on the point of breaking out in laughter while singing "Starship Trooper" like on a '74 Tales Tour bootleg.
Could it be the influence of "Wakeup"(Wakeman) nearby?
He almost makes Rick start laughing after his piano intro to "The Meeting" also.
And, on the Keys to Ascension
video he introduced "Rick Wakeup" right before Wakeman starts the intricate piano prelude to "Awaken", then Rick starts laughing while playing..
Don't really dig the acoustic set(does Howe's guitar need to be turned down even more?!), but "Show Me" is good.
Rythm of Love- sounds better w/Rabin playing.
Can anyone imagine Jon walking around the audience during "Awaken"? That would be cool if he did a mosh pit stage dive and then everyone carried him above their heads.
Overall, Howe's guitar is more powerful than on Symphonic
. The show has a grittier and more "live" feel.
Squire rips again on the "Ritual" solo. It's more "watery" than on Symphonic.
He looks either tired or that tall red cup he samples after the song ended had some strong beer in it.
What I'd like to see is "The Fish"(shindeleria praemataurus) as it was played on the Yessongs
album. It wasn't in the film, and I've never seen it performed lived except maybe at the Universal Amphitheater concert of '02, but if I don't remember it..,,
An extra treat was "Every Little Thing" which I vaguely remember from one of their first albums.
Haven't watched AYOI, Trooper, YIND, TOTC in their entirety yet....
