RICK WAKEMAN 'Live In Cuba'|
Classic Pictures (2005)
Caped crusader goes Cuba...
This DVD explains for quite clearly that the tour was about music and more importantly sick children, not politics, as Rick Wakeman did get into hot waters over playing in Cuba.
His backing band includes familiar faces like vocalists Ashley Holt but it is really Wakeman's show as he delights the audience with a setlist of solo and Yes classics.
Hard to pick out highlights when it's all good stuff but Catherine Parr and Starship Trooper are pretty fine.
The DVD features a wealth of good bonus material including an interview with Rick Wakeman, who always has something interesting and entertaining to say plus the now almost obligatory 'behind the scenes' footage.
Definitely a must have for fans and of wider appeal to those who have yet to sample Wakeman’s vast solo works.
