Yes: Steve Howe announces a solo tour and new anthology 2CD set.


Yes and former Asia guitarist Steve Howe has curated a 33-track compilation entitled simply Anthology, which is to be released on March 10.

The 2CD set contains material recorded between 1975 and 2011, and it’s launched ahead of a 12-date UK tour.

Rhino Records say: “Anthology maps his musical journey across 36 years, 16 albums and countless genres.

“It provides an enlightening showcase for Howe’s six-string prowess on songs likePennants, The Collector, Maiden Voyage – one of many featuring his son Dylan on drums – and King’s Ransom from his 2011 album Time. The collection also includes covers of two Bob Dylan songs, several cuts from Motif.

“In addition to selections from his studio albums, it also includes tracks from a pair of compilation albums: Sharp On Attack from 1988’s Guitar Speak, and flamenco-flavored Mood For A Day, one of Howe’s signature songs with Yes. The version included here is taken from the 1993 album Symphonic Music of Yes.”
