Notes: Steve Howe assembled his Remedy band from his two sons, Virgil and Dylan, and two former collaborators with Dylan, session bassist Derrick Taylor and jazz saxophonist Gilad Atzmon (who has also worked with Robert Wyatt).

Sadly, the album also features some of the last work by Andrew Jackman, who died in late 2003. Jackman had been the keyboard player in Syn with Chris Squire and Peter Banks and remained an occasional collaborator of Squire's for the rest of his career. He also did arrangements for Steve Howe, beginning in the '70s, and on Yes's Tormato, as well as for a range of pop/rock acts, from Rush (Power Windows) to Elton John. (HP, 7 Dec 03)
