    Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe is better known as four-fifths of Fragile-era Yes. Jon Anderson left the Trevor Rabin version of Yes and joined his old mates for the Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe album in 1989. In the Big Dream: A Video Compilation features three music videos and a live version of the Fragile classic "Heart of the Sunrise" recorded September 9, 1989, at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, CA. The most interesting part of this video is the behind the scenes and interview footage of ABWH at work and at play in both London and Montserrat. "Brother of Mine" is the best song on the album, but the video is marred by the silly outdoor sequences featuring dancers painted up like a bizarre cross between Native Americans and Kiss. The performance footage features quick edits in which the painted faces of the dancers dissolve into the similarly painted faces of ABWH. (Yikes!) It should be noted that "Brother of Mine" was co-directed by renowned album cover artists Storm Thorgerson (known for his Pink Floyd sleeves) and Roger Dean (known for his sci-fi landscapes gracing Yes and ABWH albums). "Order of the Universe" and "Quartet (I'm Alive)" are the other two standard videos. ABWH required a few backing musicians on their album and tour, in particular a skilled bass guitarist to play Chris Squire's parts on the old stuff; King Crimson and Peter Gabriel veteran Tony Levin played on the album and much of the tour, but Jeff Berlin mans the bass guitar on "Heart of the Sunrise." ~ Bret Adams
