Chris Squire. I wish he was on this recording, but did anyone listen to the BIG GENERATOR bass work that CS did? Barely bass on that recording. So, the absent bass player wanted to keep on NOT playing bass in the Trevor Rabin configuration of YES. I love Chris Squire (and if you check out the Bass Playing on the new YES release MAGNIFICATION, you really can see how he can still play) but he was absent in the 80's. No wonder JA went out to find some folks to play with.
Most of the negative reviews are pretty amusing... people will say... 'this is not a YES recording' or the classic statement... 'This cd has a couple of good tracks like 'birthright Fist of Fire and Brother of Mine but the other tracks are horrid.'
Look folks. If indeed the only three good tracks were BIRTHRIGHT FIST OF FIRE AND BROTHER OF MINE this album would be great anyway. Rick Wakeman getting bashed about for the wonderful recording of THE MEETING is totally baffling.
Yes fans are neurotic, but the inability to enjoy a good recording because someone is not in it that you like or you think it is not CLOSE TO THE EDGE PART SIX is pretty interesting.
Yes is a soap opera, every line up is a new season. Watching people getting booted out of this band has provided me with a lifetime of enjoyment, music aside.
Since ABWH/Union, the reconstituted Yes (Howe, Anderson, Squire, White, et al) has recorded and toured again. After about five years I finally figured out what kinda bugged me about ABWH. It wasn't, however, the bass playing. I think Tony Levin is equal to and maybe even (gasp!) better than Squire. Though having seen Squire live now three times in the last 5 years, equal is probably the word. No, what was really missing in the ABWH formula was the sound of Chris Squire's harmonies. When you listen to the best Yes music, Squire is in there along side Anderson singing away. And that sound was missing from ABWH. Thus, I can no longer call ABWH a Yes album. But if ABWH is not a Yes album and if most of Union (ABWH's 2nd album, essentially) is Yes then doesn't that make ABWH Yes? No! Confused? So am I.
Regardless, Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe is a great album, full of exciting and moving music (I even like Teakbois). And I highly recommend it. Seeing them live with Tony Levin at the Pacific Coliseum in 1991 was very special.

Nice album from Yes memebers. Here Bruford is behind the drums instead of White which is why it was probably not named as a ''Yes'' album.Published 22 months ago by Pierre Coach
The ABWH album, I guess, is a mea culpa from Jon Anderson, fresh from 90125 and Big Generator, two Yes albums which were surprisingly good and sold surprisingly well, to "classic... Read morePublished on Feb. 25 2004 by Evil Lincoln
One of the better modern efforts of the then former Yes men.
Released in 1989, this CD holds up well in listen ability. Also included is wonderful Roger Dean cover art. Read more
I don't remember liking this especially, or having thought that it could have been better, given this was the core of what was the most creative Yes lineup. Read morePublished on Aug. 8 2003 by o dubhthaigh

I bought this when it came out. I don't have it anymore, but I remember it well. NOW, I have no illusions thinking YES is defined by who is in it, or who isn't. Read morePublished on March 13 2003 by Mr. S. St Thomas

The only piece it lacks to be an authentic Yes album is the presence of the enormous composer/bassist Chris Squire. A real star. Read morePublished on Dec 29 2001 by Marcelo A. Soto Quiroga
