STEVE HOWE – Homebrew 7 (2021)

YES guitarist STEVE HOWE has announced he is to release the seventh edition of his ‘Homebrew’ album series on 30th July via HoweSound. ”Homebrew 7” marks the 25th anniversary of the guitar legend’s first album in his Homebrew collection. The ‘Homebrew series’ typically features recordings from Steve Howe’s home archive of demos and tracks, originally recorded for one of his many solo or group projects with YES, ASIA, ABWH or GTR.
However, ”Homebrew 7” is of special interest as none of the tracks have previously been released in any form and there are no plans for any to be re-recorded in the future.
There’s some vocal song-format tracks (like the really good ‘Half Way’, written in the ’90s) but mostly here are short, finished songs showcasing Howe’s incredible versatility as songwriter and guitarist. Most of the tracks are Howe’s solo recordings with occasional contributions from Dylan Howe and Virgil Howe on drums with Phil Spalding on bass guitar…

GTR – Nerotrend [2nd Unreleased album / first generation tape] *EXCLUSIVE*

Few days ago we featured the reissue of a Nightwing album featuring talented British lead vocalist Max Bacon. Bacon was later part of super-group GTR founded by Steve Hackett & Steve Howe, and their only official album.
However, there was a second album in the making, “Nerotrend“, that never materialized. Bacon sung some of the songs, the others were performed by the exquisite Robert Berry (Alliance UK, Hush). It is very interesting to listen to the different styles of Bacon and Berry on a same song (Young Hearts) and what would have been GTR second album. This really is a must for any GTR collector, and all the musicians involved.
There was a bootleg of this unreleased material, but this is taken from a first generation tape owned by a recording studio employee, with much better sound quality. (thanks to K.V. for this exclusive)
