ABWH Live at the NEC October 24th 1989 – Part 1 – 208

ABWH Live with Tony Levin

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?

Listen to the episode and then let me know what you think!

Thanks for the pod. This is my first Yespod and I enjoyed it! I was just listening to the CDs. I thought it was odd that Order of the Universe was the last track, now I see why. Also I did notice some diminished sound quality during The Meeting, lots of tape hiss. I look forward to listening to some of my favorite classics again like CTTE, HOTS, and ST! Can’t go wrong with those epic tracks!
