Parallels (2008)

Here’s the current incarnation of the band performing “Parallels” from the Cleveland, Ohio gig at the House of Blues on November 25, 2008. One of the nice things about the In the Present lineup was the return of seldom-played songs to the set. I already posted “Astral Traveler” and “Machine Messiah” earlier (see here), but I wanted to post “Parallels” as it was one of the tracks that was cut from the set after about half of the first leg of the tour. Benoit sounds a little timid (but he vastly improved as the band toured over the following year and a half), and the rest of the band plays pretty well. I hope the set from the Yes/Frampton tour isn’t a sign of things to come as most of the “rarieties” have been dropped. All that remains of the songs not sung in recent tours is “Tempus Fugit.” But with a new album coming out I hope the set list sees some new and old surprises the next time the band tours.

    Thanks! It's a shame they didn't play this OR CTTE on either of their Dallas dates since Benoit joined the band. Oh well!

    The band sounds great! Benoit's a little shaky, but I would be too if I was singing for Yes. lol
