    "OOALH" - that Steve Howe rhythm part near the end...

    So when i first heard OOLAH with Steve Howe on guitar, it might have been the 2004 Prince's Trust concert. Maybe he had played it before then, but that's when i first heard Steve playing that rhythm guitar part near the end (that one single chord played in rhythm). To hear it go here: https://youtu.be/75O9XiiYHPA?t=566 It's at the 9:26 mark. I always thought it was a cool addition to the song and a way for Howe to contribute something new. Except yesterday i was listening to OOLAH and i finally heard that part on the original song. It's there, right? It's not a new Howe thing. It was always there.

    Anyone else notice that? And i think Howe did make it more prominent anyway. In the youtube video, it was much more audible.

    OH, and watch Steve jam to it around it around 9:39. He looks like he is actually enjoying himself playing a Rabin track!

    Wow, I had forgotten how great that was... why, just why can't we have that Union II with both Yes... so much talent, so much possibilities to built a strong Yes for well at least one of its last phases...

    I thought Rabin was “Skippy”.

    In Geoff's lexicon Trevor is "Trevor Rabies" and Jon is "Skippy the Bush Kangaroo."

    Oh dear, thanks for the clarification Luna. Maybe we need a Downes Oxford Dictionary. Dare I ask what his moniker for Rick Wakeman is?

    The Princes Trust performance was magnificent and both Trevor and Steve played phenomenally. I give Trevor loads of credit for singing lead. This is by far my favorite live version of the song.

    The guitars are definitely up in the mix on that video! Yep, that part's in the original - very Mo-Town-ish rhythmic strumming of octaves.

    Howe gets a solo as well, right?

    Geoff doesn't have the stones to go after Wakeman.

    In fairness to Geoff, when was the last time he “went after” Trevor or Jon? The “skippy” stuff was from 2011 I believe, though he may have said something more recently that I’m not aware of. And the “Trevor Rabies” line was in a tweet if I recall correctly. It’s not like he’s going around badmouthing them all the time.

    Considering how the Holy Trinity have acted toward their former band, Geoff’s occasional use of derisive nicknames in a joking manner is hardly out of line.

    But that has nothing to do with this thread.

    An additional thought about the performance:

    Isn’t it nice to get a Steve Howe guitar solo instead of the walkabout Trevor and Rick have been doing?

    Steve solo on OOALH is really fun. Neat to see him do that. And neat to see Trevor make space for it. I like to think Steve & Trevor might be friends in another life.

    If you're saying he needs to gain a little weight before their cage match you"re probably right.

    If he's smart (and I think he is), he stays well away from criticizing a guy with at least 10x his instrumental talent.
    It drives me nuts when people online don't know the difference between "your" and "you're".

    Don't give him toooo much credit though, he redid all his vocals in the studio to replace the rather wonky version the audience heard.
