5 stars This live album is a great assortment of classic Yes songs, and because its live it has more character and atmosphere than a studio album. As far as the songs, Heart of the Sunrise is a favourite for so many reasons. Like all good prog songs, it's a long jam and collaboration of the talent within the band and has many musical moments. Another surprise is " The Six Wives of Henry VIII", a track that is a true showcase of Wakeman's genius and the wonders of the mellotron and Moog sythesizers. And of course Roundabout is a classic with the great harmonies and Hammond B3 solo. Overall the first disk of the CD version is personally my favourite and contains the better songs. The only criticism I have is that some of the longer songs on the second disk are sort of dull and too experimental but otherwise an excellent album.
