AllMusic Review by

This album documents a 1996 solo concert by Yes singer Jon Anderson, and finds the helium-voiced prog-rock legend tackling a wealth of tunes from the Yes canon as well as some songs from his collaborations with Greek keyboard wizard Vangelis. While the sound quality is somewhat questionable (it sounds suspiciously like an audience recording), the tunes themselves are unimpeachable. Anderson is in fine voice, delivering spirited versions of Yes classics like "And You And I" as well as Jon & Vangelis tunes such as the percolating "State of Independence."
