3 stars Yesshows is one of the better live Yes albums out there,(the best being Keys to Ascension 1 IMO) it has a couple of epics and stuff from Tormato and Going for the One what more could you ask for. Yesshows marks the real end of the "classic Yes Symphonic period" and three years after this album the band reforms under Trevor Rabin and created 90125 (what and imaginative album title.)

Yesshows featres both Rick Wakeman and Paterick Moraz, Moraz playes on the two epics and Wakeman is on everything else. Also the quality of The Gates of Delirium is excellent (although many people say otherwise), just listen to Steve Howe on guitar and you will see that he is really proggin'.

This moderatly a good Yes album even if some of the featues are a bit dulled and inaudible, give it a chance any way. If you don't want this live Yes album then try Keys To Ascension which has the extended version of Starship Trooper and everything. By the way this albums is good but not essential as there is better live stuff from Yes out there, so it gets three stars. Other good live albums are Playing the Fool - Gentle Giant and A Live Record - Camel, both of these are miles better than Yesshows.
