More information: Legendary guitarist Steve Howe releases a second volume to his Anthology series 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. More than a dozen of unreleased collaborations will make their debut on this release.

This set is a physical 3 CD set designed by Roger Dean including a 32-page booklet. The collection spans more than 50 years of Howe’s prolific career with 56 tracks that mix hits with a generous selection of unreleased recordings, including several with Keith West, who was Howe’s bandmate in Tomorrow and The In Crowd.

The collection opens with songs that Howe recorded during brief tenures with bands in the 1960s like The Syndicats (“Maybellene” 1964), The In Crowd (“Blow Up” 1967), Tomorrow (“Revolution” 1968), and Bodast (“Nothing To Cry For,” 1969). In addition to this, hits like Yes’s “Roundabout” and Asia’s “Heat Of The Moment” are featured along with rarities like “Montreux’s Theme”. The latter is a song Yes recorded during sessions for Going for the One (1977). Also included is “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. Also included is “Brother Of Mine” a song he recorded in 1989 with former Yes members: Jon Anderson, Bill Bruford and Rick Wakeman. The Steve Howe Trio, a jazz band he started with his son Dylan on drums, is represented by “Kenny’s Sound”, and “Sweet Thunder”.

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).
