In 2000, solo violinist Diana Yukawa recorded "Sukiyaki" on her best-selling debut album (known as Elegy in the UK and La Campanella in Japan).

Banks' first solo album entitled Two Sides of Peter Banks was recorded at the same time as that third Flash album and released in the same year. The album title is apt, as the two vinyl sides are very different from each other in character. The first side is by far the better one featuring more structured compositions while the second side is occupied by two extended jams with Jan Akkerman from Focus. Like Collins and Akkerman, Banks too had a jazzier side, and he explores that on side two of the album. I'm sure they had fun playing together, but it is sadly no fun for the listener. To sum up, the first side of this album is good, but the second side is dispensable.
Banks is, of course, best known as the guy who played guitar on Yes before Steve Howe came into the fold. But, those who only see that part of the picture, though, are missing out on quite a lot. Banks first got his start with Yes’ bassist Chris Squire in the group the Syn. After that, Banks and Squire moved to their next group Mabel Greer’s Toy Shop. The first thing that jumps out about this album is the impressive list of contributors. Their presence reinforces the notion that, at the time, Banks was viewed as a giant in this kind of music, somebody who could draw talent to come work with him, and somebody whose post-Yes contributions require more examination than they might otherwise get.
