Asia - Not Just Another SuperGroup

The music on the album notwithstanding, the cover artwork is why I am posting this. Asia, as you will recall was made up of John Wetton, Geoff Downes, Carl Palmer and Steve Howe. In 2006 the band announced they would reform, make a new CD, a DVD, and embark on a world tour to celebrate their 25th anniversary. After some legal wrangling, the band secured ownership of the Asia band name (who else had it?) and toured under this name: the Four Original Members of Asia. See Reports state they play most of the songs on this album along with one selection each from the deep catalogues of Yes, ELP, King Crimson, and the Buggles as an homage to each member’s former bands. They start the US leg of their 2009 tour later this month, June 26 - Indio, CA.
