Although Howe is known best as the guitarist for Yes, his long career has seen him involved in many other bands and musical collaborations. He was founder member of Asia, formed GTR with Steve Hackett and of course was an integral part of the ‘alternative’ Yes; Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman and Howe. Somehow during all of this Steve has also had a very active solo career and it’s from his many solo albums that this Anthology has been assembled. Howe’s music has always been extremely varied and although mostly original he also occasionally draws on ‘old favourites’ that helped inspire him to play. Of course he also sings, too. Rhino Records have triumphed again here as the track listing includes rarities and remastered oldies from some of Steve’s earliest albums. It may be missing Yes classics like Clap (p36) and Mood For A Day but there’s still loads here to enjoy and be inspired by.
