Yeah, that's the one thing I'm not looking fowrard to. If you're just going to sit there, you might as well just watch the DVD in your house. At least stand up and get into it during the heavier songs like GFTO and Rhythm Of Love or YIND. I dunno...I hate sitting at concerts. <hr>-Steve C. http://ww...

I agree, Sherwood is a really talented guy. I'm not crazy about all of the Conspiracy stuff (although I really liked some of it) but the guy is an immense talent, and I think he was an asset to Yes that the rest of the band never fully utilized. Having said that, "The Ladder" is one of my favorite Y...

I'd be more interested in the live box if I thought there was a chance of having a fair amount of 80's material on it, but with Steve Howe being involved that's not likely to happen.

I'd argue that BG is "forgettable," but I do think they should finish the job and remaster it and re-release it. And digital or not, the original CD release of the album has terrible sound.
