ASIA - Axis XXX Live in San Francisco MMXII (2015) full

*

Frontiers Music will be releasing in a couple of weeks a new ASIA double CD titled “Axis XXX Live in San Francisco MMXII” recorded during one of the shows that ASIA performed in support of the ‘XXX’ album, featuring the original line-up of John Wetton: bass and vocals, Carl Palmer: drums, Steve Howe: guitars and Geoff Downes: keyboards.

There’s songs, of course from the XXX album including the excellent “Tomorrow the World”, but I’m pleased that the wonderful late period is also represented with “An Extraordinary Life”, from Asia’s great record Phoenix.
All the classics are present too very well performed for your listening pleasure.

ASIA - Axis XXX Live in San Francisco MMXII (2015) inside

Everything in “Axis XXX Live in San Francisco MMXII” is typically Asia; always classy, always immaculately played, always… Asia.
This is a perfectly serviceable live album even if, like so many heritage acts, another live album isn’t what is really required by general public / audiences.
However, if you’re a fan, you’ll love this one.
