Saturday Rock Show

In 1988, Jon Anderson, Bill Bruford, Rick Wakeman, and Steve Howe got together and put out a beautiful record. Touring under the name ABWH for legal reasons, their shows were called "An Evening of Yes Music Plus". The shows began with solo performances by Anderson, Howe, and Wakeman, with Bruford doing a short electronic drum solo before breaking into "Long Distance Runaround". Rick Wakeman's solo consisted of him playing a medley from his early- and mid-70's solo albums. I want to emphasize that the middle synthesizer solo is not sped up in any way. As a sometime musician myself, this is the kind of thing that makes me just gape.
