Hackett, Steve - The Tokyo Tapes 2 x CDs + DVD box set
This features guitarist/vocalist Steve Hackett leading an all-star group of Julian Colbeck-keyboards and vocals, Ian McDonald-sax, flute, keyboards, guitar and vocals, John Wetton-bass and vocals and Chester Thompson-drums. Phew.
There are 17 tracks recorded live in Tokyo, Japan, December 16 & 17, 1996, including lots of work from Hackett's solo albums, Genesis pieces and King Crimson (where having Ian McDonald there is something pretty special). There's also 3 studio recordings that are here for no reason I can think of, but are very nice!
The third disc is a pro-shot DVD of the live tracks and lets you see everyone really digging into the performances.
