I have been unwell this week so I have only had time to listen to the first moments of the ABWH Live at the NEC package. However, I have had time to look at the sleeve notes and do a bit of research. There’s also a great review of a Jon and Vangelis album from Mark Anthony K and another ‘list’ from Marc Cadmore.

  • Why was this recording made?
  • Why was it not released until 2012?
  • Who is playing on it?
