Tour wasn’t advertised as Greendale. It was £50. He insisted the bars were closed. He played the tedious Neil by numbers Greendale for hours plus 4 “hits”. Dismal. :lol: :roll:


I remember now!

No 'Needle in' or 'Old Man' or 'Tell me Why' - disgraceful

And dry too......!!

Sadly, Yes killed The Buggles.

I really enjoyed the 90125 tour - my brother had a spare ticket and I wasn't expecting much

Trevor Rabin did good

Drama wasn't very well received at the time but seems to have grown in stature over the years, partly because of the dross they’ve recorded subsequently

Ooh I did see 90125 or Big Generator as well.

Run Through the Light - is another up tempo delight

Chris Squire's bass really is very tasty

This is where I start thinking this album was a bit front-loaded with the good stuff.

But there are treasures here. It is a wistful one, this

Must listen to Fly From Here The Return Trip soon.

Front loaded, I’d agree.

Indubitably.

Bass and guitar have been excellent throughout.

See above - I enjoyed 90125 gig very much

It didn't even buy Drama until a year or so after it's release.

Bloody Buggles - you clearly weren't a full-fledged prog goon Mike...

That was my last Yes album [my loss, I know]

Sure thing. That's a nice word

Yes, awesome bass and guitar

This, I think, is a very robust album

Elements of seminal methinks...

It's a shame kath isn't here to enjoy this with us.

Hopefully, she'll get her computer sorted relatively rapidly

Music is good but Jon’s lyrics are the very essence of twee. If you don’t listen to lyrics it’s pretty darned good.

Top and tailing the album with the best two songs I think. Finishing powerfully - had I bought this back in the day I'd have been very tempted to turn it over and start all over.


Very good album, in my somewhat hazy knowledge of Yes it is about to leap frog into the top five.

Spotify is now playing Yes live at Glastonbury 2003. Not bad.
