4 stars This was the first cd I heard by Yes. It also got me into the amazing world of Yes and prog.

This is a live cd recorded after their (lousy) Homeworld album. Luckily there are no ladder or other "pop" (ignore owner, but it actually sounds pretty good on this) songs on this cd, only pure Yes! All the songs are well chosen and the live versions are superb and very different from studio versions.

One might even consider them to sound even better than in "Yessongs", but that varies between song and person who is listening. Mixing and sound quality deserver straight ten points. So if you want to check out how did Yes do few years ago then consider purchasing this. Only shame is that it doesn't have Wakeman, but you can't actually hear it!
