4 stars A wonderful packet delivering us the live recordings of YES from early 70's. The set list is totally awesome, covering the most essential compositions the band ever managed to create. All this is packed up in the most fabulous Roger Dean design yet to be encountered, with big opening gatefolds, several large paintings and a funny booklet. The only aspect that makes me drop of the fifth possible star from my rating is the fact that many of these songs worked a bit more better on the studio releases. As the songs are highly structured, they sound more coherent on the albums, and there isn't much space for improvisation. Also the sound quality isn't the best possible, but that doesn't bother me much. If you like live music, get this! Also all fans of this band should at least listen through this live album.
