This week Mark and I have been considering Songs From Tsongas in order to re-live the last time Howe, White, Anderson and Wakeman were together on stage along with the late great Chris Squire. With the recent ARW and Yes live offerings perhaps only offering us part of the story, does Songs from Tsongas now seem like the full picture?

  • How does the acoustic section come over?
  • How is the band interaction?

Listen to the episode then let us know what you think!

  • Should they also play a variety of other tracks?
