The original Yes guitarist's solo debut features quite a line-up of guest artists. Predominantly, these are Jan Akkerman of Focus -- who is Banks' main collaborator, Phil Collins, Flash bandmates Ray Bennett and Mike Hough. Briefer cameos are provided from Steve Hackett and a John Wetton who was just dipping his toes into King Crimson at the time.
The album opens with a beautiful electric guitar duet, Banks' classic volume pedal tones and Akkerman ringing out with sad, gothic fifths characteristic of his work in Focus. The other duet, Akkerman's "Beyond the Loneliest Sea", is even more impressive, with more weeping willow support from Banks and Akkerman laying down some luscious classical guitar.
Banks takes the ball and runs alone with "White House Vale", a melodic guitar poem which showcases some of his own classical moves, with a brief interlude that presages the next piece, "Knights". The main riff of the two-parter "Knights," incidentally, is almost exactly like one of main themes from Wendy Carlos' Tron composed a decade later, though the similarity is almost certainly coincidental. On Banks' post-Yes albums, he inevitably lets fly some terrific electric guitar solos, in the John McLaughlin "let them eat cake 'cause I'm gonna wing this mutha" spirit of sloppy exploration, even if it sounds nothing like Mahavishnu Orchestra. Here you can find that on "Knights" and "Stop That!". The album closes with a fun, and one can only assume tongue-in-cheek, electric hoedown between Banks and Akkerman entitled "Get Out of My Fridge".
