2 stars After glancing at the tracklisting for this boxset, I was VERY interested in it. The things that stuck out to me immediately were:

A live version of SOUNDCHASER! They had never released a live recording of it, and I was very excited. Even more, a live version of AWAKEN from the 70's! I had been dying to hear one, and they had never released a live version of Awaken (save the one from Keys To Ascension, but they don't rock very hard in that one, as they're older.)

However, my friend bought this boxset, and I managed to listen to it. I was extremely dissapointed! The sound is not as good as it should be, and I have recently aquired Yes bootlegs, with better sound quality, and more of the tracks that I wanted, that this 40 dollar boxset does not have.

The packaging was nice, and the art work is really nice. It's just too much money, for non- essential tracks.

If you're really interested in live Yes, Yessongs, and Yesshows are all you truly need. If you are STILL not satisfied, find some bootlegs. There are some great quality bootlegs with all the tracks that Yes fans would want for free. Bootlegs beat this boxset to a pulp.
