4 stars As I explained before, this concert was released in two separate Volumes. Now, I continue with my review for this concert, now for the Volume Two:

1. And You & I: played in a similar way to the live version included in "Yessongs", but Moraz also added his style to this song, even using his own keyboard sounds. It is a good version, anyway.

2. Ritual: by this song, it was nightime, and one can see more clearly the stage designs done by Martyn Dean (and maybe by Roger Dean too, but I don`t remember well now). It is a spectacular song to be seen on video, with the use of the stage designs and lights. Moraz played very well in this song. The drums and percussion section is very good, with White playing the drums, while Anderson, Howe and Squire support him playing percussion instruments and Moraz plays the keyboards. Anderson also plays an acoustic guitar in some parts of this song.

3. Roundabout: a good version, also different due to Moraz`organ solo.

4. Sweet Dreams: I think that this song was included in this tour to promote the "Yesterdays" compilation album which was released two or three months after the "Relayer" album, but in 1975. It is also a good version of this song, played a bit differently due to the changes in the line-up in comparison to the original studio version.

5. Yours is No Disgrace: a heavy version of this song, played similarly to the live version included in the "Yessongs" album and video.

In conclusion, this is a very good concert, somewhat marred by the bad mixing in several parts of the video, but it is, still, a very good filmed document of this YES ` line- up on tour.Alan White particularly shows that he has improved a lot in his playing, being in 1975 very well integrated with the sound and style of the band. Patrick Moraz showed how good he is as a keyboard player, particularly during his piano solo section. The rest of the musicians are very good, as always.
