Waterloo Records

ASIA - British Live Performance Series - Recorded in 1990 in Nottingham, England, the album finds the group in epic form. Founder members John Wetton, drummer Carl Palmer and keyboardist Geoff Downes link with guitarist Pat Thrall to present a live greatest hits, from the three major singles - "Heat Of The Moment," "Only Time Will Tell" and "Sole Survivor" - from their first album through to later highlights "Go" and "Voice Of America". With the help of label boss David Geffen and manager John Kalodner, the band would become one of MTV's biggest stars then, and a classic rock staple now. This show captures Asia at their best - in concert, where their virtuoso musicianship can be best appreciated. No studio trickery is needed to recreate the music for which the band is rightly known. Defiantly rock-based anthems like "Time Again" and "The Heat Goes On" that had illuminated the sterile, electronic '80s remained relevant in a new decade. As Carl Palmer put it, this was - and is - "English rock with a technical side - sophisticated rock mixed in with melodies and singles."
