Rick Wakeman, Awaken rehearsal - Yes 1976-1977 2DVD set

5 years ago989 views



This is a very interesting insight into song writing and rehearsal for the album Going For The One at Mountains Studios in Montreux, Switzerland 1976. Originally made to be a documentary and eventually scrapped this historical document is a must have for any serious collector of rare or vintage Yes material or any serious or enthusiastic fan of vintage progressive rock. In this clip we see Rick Wakeman transcend from light-hardheartedness to master song writer within minutes as we see one of the greatest keyboardists of all time build/improvise a beautiful sequence for the song Awaken.

If you are a collector or simply LOVE Yes and are looking for anything else Yes that's not available in stores I HIGHLY recommend this DVD set
