    Yes, that was a great track from the Sherwood-produced Chris Squire tribute CD.
    It is most worthwhile.

    My favorite track of the entire thing is the last track which is a Squire cover of "Comfortably Numb."
    It is superb because it really showcases Squire's vocals.

    It is my preferred version, even over the orig-a-nall.

    Todd has a history of covering other songs. I enjoy that side of him (as well as the other 347 sides).
    LOL

    Rundgren was heavily into Yes in the early days, going to several of their shows. He has said that he had Roundabout in mind as a template when he wrote Communion with the Sun (on the Utopia album, 'Ra').

    I also remember his girlfriend at the time, Bebe Buell, mock-complaining that it was often difficult to get Todd's attention because he'd be listening to Yes LPs and surrounded by SF books and mags!

    This isn't surprising. Remember the tour TR did with Yes a few years ago? A bunch of Yes fans were like, "Damn! There's more to this guy than Hello It's Me!"

    I’ve never heard this version before, I am generally not much of a fan of these tribute albums, but always interested in Todd. Having just looked it up I see Todd is only responsible for the vocals here, I had wondered if it was a more “one man in a studio vibe“, akin to some of his classics.
