3 stars I actually liked this live album, and typically I don't like live albums of even some of my favorite bands. Extended Versions tends to mean exactly what it says, the tracks are extended, and some in interesting ways, sometimes sort of jamming at the end of the song over a certain part repeated, or something of the sort. But some tracks are interesting to hear just because you haven't heard the extended parts, especially Starship Trooper. I had definitely not heard America in the way it was played on the live track... quite different from the album reissue versions. I came to really appreciate Awaken through this CD, as I have yet to actually get Going for the One, though now I'm quite prompted to purchase it. I quite enjoyed this not so well known Yes live album, from start to finish, though I'm sure Keys to Ascension would be a bit of a better buy for your money, as it has the same tracks plus, and a more interesting cover. Though not bad live album I thought, not bad at all.
