4 stars If you like Yes, get your hands on this recording quickly, because it captures Yes in their prime. Its the best Yes live album i've heard, and the selection of songs is fantastic.

Although the studio versions are more rugged and clean sounding, the recordings on this set give off an incredible atmosphere, and the improvisations, especially Steve Howe's guitar work make the live versions rival the studio ones. The quality of the recordings is sometimes a bit muddy, but given that it was recorded in 1973, it's great. And you I dont even notice it when listening to it.

It is not the best introduction to Yes, but as many have stated before, Yessongs is a live album no Yes fan should be without.
