Steve Howe

An­thol­ogy

Guitar Techniques - - MUSIC REVIEWS -

Rhino Records

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.
