4 stars This TRIPLE LP is an early 70's live album of the Yes band. The sound is rather good for the year. The chosen tracks are very representative of the most progressive moments of the early Yes: indeed most of the epic tracks from "Close to the Edge", "Fragile" and "The Yes album" are played. The "Opening" track, an excerpt from the "Firebird Suite", is a flamboyant classical piece played by an orchestra, reminding the "Rick Wakeman's "Journey to the center of the Earth" album. Alan White's drums solo on "Perpetual change" is original an impressive. Howe's electric guitar solo on "And you and I" sounds as weird and spacy as on the Relayer album. The crowd is favorably responding. The excerpts from "The Six Wives of Henry VIII" album are VERY interesting: Yes stopped to play, leaving all the available room to Rick's delightful keyboards. Yes only play the first rhythmic part on "Long distance runaround".

Rating: 4.5 stars
