UK was, in a way, sort of a precursor to Asia. As Asia was assembled from parts of Yes, King Crimson, Roxy Music, and ELP. So to answer the posted question - I do think UK is/was a super group, for a short time. From the '70's, singer and bassist John Wetton and drummer Bill Bruford were in King Crimson. Keyboardist Rick Wakeman knew Bill Bruford from Yes. [Bruford played on the classic double-live live Genesis album (to be posted later this summer), Seconds Out.] The story goes, Bruford and Wetton each invited a musician. Wetton brought in keyboardist/violinist Eddie Jobson, (think Roxy Music) and Bruford invited Allan Holdsworth (Soft Machine). And voila - a super-type group was borne. With featrued violin and synth - this record has a vide that is a cross between Yes and Jean Luc Ponty.
