Peter Banks ~ Be Well, Be Safe, Be Lucky… The Anthology



You may know Peter Banks as the original guitarist for YES, or THE SYN, EMPIRE or even FLASH. This compilation of the late guitarist consists of 2 discs, incorporating the best of Peter Banks as well as other goodies you may or may not have heard before. Some of this, I have not, even though most of this music has been on other albums, but, some were previously unreleased. Some of the songs contain remnants of some of the YES songs that he did. A very long version of “Astral Traveller” really let me hear Peter strutting his guitar prowess. I’ve never been much of a Peter Banks fan (other than YES), but, this CD set shows me just how great of a guitarist that Peter really was. I do prefer some vocals with my music, but, this music can stand on it’s own. When you open up the CD booklet, you get a poem written by Bill Ward of BLACK SABBATH, which was written around the time of Peter’s death. I rate this 4 out of 5 Music Guru Stars.
