I think Steve's playing of To Be Over is fantastic! Is that the same version you're referring to Topo?
I think disc 1 of the set is fantastic. That dance mix of Owner of a Lonely Heart is great! But disc 2 has Jon and Steve trying to sing a folksy/country ballad. umm, Jon, stick to rock and New-Age, country isn't your thing.
Yep, I'll have to vote for Steve's instrumental To Be Over. I can put that thing on repeat and repeat all day! Lovely.

Is the song you are referring to (folksy/ country) the long song listed as a Anderson / Howe composition? If so when was this recorded? Lost gem from 30 years ago or recent.
LadyMoondancer wrote:A Yes song, which I can't think of the title, something with the line "You've a great imagination," which is a pretty good song. I can't remember the name of the country song I referred to, but yes, it is long, written by Steve and Jon, and I'm assuming that's Steve singing with Jon.
Jon starts out with a twangy accent (oh yuck!) and they try to harmonize ala Simon and Garfunkel. Then towards the end Jon loses the country accent several times. Let's just say it was a mess! I can't stand it, and for me to say that, me, who idolizes Jon, you know it's bad. ha ha. (sorry Jon).
so I guess my answer isyesman90125 wrote:for electric Id say the solo on awaken
even though its kind of hidden in the mix
and not until recent remasters have you been able to really hear it like you could on the lp
My back up would be release release or the solo in to be over
for accustic Id say its the turn of the century solo
and my back up would be the" leaves of green" sectionof "The Ancient-Giants under the sun" from topographic oceans
thats a really tough call
he did some great electric work on Asia too
