My friend bought "Beginnings" by Steve Howe when it came out. I'm glad he did otherwise I might have done :D
That's what friends are for



Beginnings - ghastly record, who convinced the man he could sing?

If it's less Howe vocals you want, get The Steve Howe Album from '79 then.

I'll think I'll give it a pass thanks Matt.

I'll stop short of calling it a great album, but it is much better than Beginnings (or indeed any other Howe solo album I've heard, not that I've necessarily kept up).

Just been checking it out Charlie and it doesn't really seem to be my kind of thing. It appears to be mainly instrumental with one song sung by Claire Hamill and a second by SH and the range of genres covered doesn't make it sound very appealing - to me anyway but thanks for your comment.

In Yes, it's always been a competition between the guitar and the keyboard. Sometimes, both of them competing for space is thrilling -- there are definitely times in "The Gates of Delirium" when too much is a great thing -- but sometimes it just muddies the picture. I sometimes find myself ignoring the keyboard, or in certain moments, wishing I could mute either guitar or keyboard so the other can have its say. I'd have to go back and listen to provide examples, but I know lots of Tales and Tormato have this happening.
