    Delightful

    "4,827 views Sep 14, 2022 The wonderful joy, enthusiasm and powerful energy from all of these young musicians and singers truly blows me away. To think that fifty years later I was able to perform with teenagers and create such a unique experience… Ever grateful to Paul Green for helping them all to realize their true potential as young musicians and singers… bravo!! To everyone!! Thanks Brian Bricklin for the recording and mixing and to Michael Smerconish for the video… and Mick Byrne for adding his magic! Love and light. Jon 🙏"

    Wow......the intro sounds heavy with the distorted guitar. Same goes for the section, coming out of the "I Get Up, I get Down" section. Already a difference with the original recording, but even moreso compared to Steve Howe's clean guitar sound from nowadays. Clocking in at 16:48 it's faster than the studio version as well. Jon sounds great and the youngsters are doing a very good job as well. Powerfull version.

    Lead guitarist seems to aspire to look like Howe , keyboardist with the cape

    With all the distorted guitar etc. it sort of sounds like how the song could have been performed during the Rabin years....

      Love Jon's air-guitar... Brilliant! It's a testament to the original composition and its arrangement how well it works with different interpretations.
      I always wanted female backing singers with Yes!

      Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
      Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

        The mix is excellent and Anderson sounds just wonderful for his age.

        He should be touring CCTE and classic songs with Wakeman (Rick or Oliver), Howe and Sherwood /Pomeroy.

        Hornal could supply the backing vocals and play additional parts.

        Alas, it won't happen but we can only hope and dream....

          Just had the chance to watch it in its entirety (I'm at work), and my office colleague asked if I was ok as I was tearing up at the end....

            I loved Jon's look of shock then the guitarist flubbed a note at 2:37. But otherwise that kid was amazing.
