Review Type: 

Yet another live album released by Frontiers Records, and another live album for Asia, this time a recording made in November 7th at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco.  The album is available as double CD, as a DVD and on blue ray.  At that time the band still had it’s original line-up including Steve Howe, who would leave the band a few months later to focus on other projects. The songs on this album mainly come from their first two albums, although there are also some tracks from other albums, and even the single from their XXX album ‘Face on the Bridge’ is among them.

It doesn’t have to be told again that these four musicians are well versed in their trade, so musically no bad remarks can be made, and I’m sure every die-hard Asia fan will buy this album, but it’s not really my cup of tea.  Mind you, not that I’m finding this bad music, but it’s a bit bland for me.
