3CD Release spans more than 50 years of Howe’s Prolific Career with 56 tracks of Hits & Unreleased Recordings
Legendary guitarist Steve Howe adds a second volume to his Anthology series with a collection that highlights his key contributions to groups like Yes and Asia, while also rounding up his numerous collaborations with musicians like Paul Sutin and Oliver Wakeman.
Starting with his work in the mid-Sixties, the collection opens with songs that Howe recorded during brief tenures with bands like The Syndicats (“Maybellene,” 1964), The In Crowd (“Blow Up,” 1967), Tomorrow (“Revolution,” 1968) and Bodast (“Nothing To Cry For,” 1969).
Hits like Yes’s “Roundabout” and Asia’s “Heat Of The Moment” are featured along with rarities like “Montreux’s Theme,” a song Yes recorded during sessions for Going for the One (1977), and “Masquerade” a previously unreleased tune by Asia.
The collection also touches on Howe’s stint in GTR, the supergroup he founded in 1986 with former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett as well as The Steve Howe Trio, a jazz band he started with his son Dylan on drums.
The set’s final disc explores some of Howe’s many musical collaborations through the years, including songs he recorded with Fish of the band Marillion (“Time And A Word,” 1993), keyboardist Oliver Wakeman (“The Forgotten King,” 2001) and Paul Sutin (“Voyager,” 1995). In addition, more than a dozen of Howe’s unreleased collaborations will make their debut on ANTHOLOGY 2.
