3 stars The non-choice of leaving off all the songs that appeared on Yes' first live album Yessongs hindered the impact of Yesshows. It was further affected by the band's decline in the late-70's, and subsequent breakup in the early-80's. While still displaying a good array of songs from their post-Close to the Edge work (excluding "Time and a Word"), The album is far noisier than Yessongs, and seems to be a bit rough in parts, which was something Yes had seemingly done away with some years back. It's a little curious that Yes would see fit to omit some of their more popular songs in "Awaken" and "The Revealing Science of God", but in the end that's what this album boils down to; a curiosity.
