Bodast Steve Howe Yes cd

A 2017 re-mastered edition of the 1969 recordings by Bodast, the short-lived band formed in late 1968 featuring the soon to be legendary Steve Howe.

Originally known as Canto, the trio of Howe, Curtis and Clarke adopted the name Bodast (and abbreviation of their first names) and were joined by Clive Skinner. The band recorded a series of songs at Trident studios in London, produced by Steve Howe’s former band mate in Tomorrow, Keith West. 
 
Over four decades on from the sessions, the tracks recorded by Bodast provide a fascinating insight into Steve Howe’s pre-Yes career. The track Nether Street features a riff later re-worked as the basis of the Wurm section of Yes' Starship Trooper.
 
Towards Utopia features the original Keith West produced mixes of the Trident sessions, along with three bonus tracks by Canto recorded for Deep Purple’s management company in 1968.
 
CD includes booklet with essay.
