Any Yes was better than no Yes so having give Drama a go and quite liked it went along open minded. only 4 songs required comparison with the Anderson area and it was obvious Squire was carrying Horn.
Highlights Squires amazing Bass on Tempus Fugit and Howe's Guitar on Machine Massiah. lasting image poor Trevor on the harmonies in the final section of Starship trooper Oh dear. Still a bridge for the Rabin era
I remember the highlights being Your's is No Disgrace, particularly Steve's playing. Also Chris' solo being incredibly loud playing Amazing Grace. Trevor was disappointing. At times it was like somebody with headphones singing along to Yes, not realising how awful they sounded. I remember at one point Trevor Horn making the mistake of asking the audiance what they wanted to hear. The reply yelled by lots of people was.. Jon Anderson.
A short time afterwards I saw Jon Anderson at the Albert Hall. It sounded like a more authentic Yes.
