Hmm, I'm not sure that I really need more live versions of those songs, classic though they are.

A 14-disc box set??? Okay, I will wait for my library to buy it. I like Yes, but this is madness.
The "Yesshows" was already a 3-CD set, there are a lot of other live archives availables, I'm not going to spend half of my salaries/allowances on this monster!

Like a fool I got my hopes up that these recordings would be with Bruford. I might have gone for the 2CD selection if they had been. Guess I still might if the sound quality is substantially better than Yessongs, which I find unlistenable.

UPDATE!

I jumped the gun on this;  I also felt that they would have the amazing Bruford.

I think I will pass....

I usually want everything that comes by Yes, but why would I want a set of 7 shows from the same tour with just about the same set-list? And why would I want any of this shows if I already have Yessongs? If at least this was a new live album with Bill Bruford still on Drums, then that would be another matter and I wouldn't think about it.

A 14-disc version of Yessongs is my dream come true!  To me, this is Yes at their best, when it was all new and exciting, and the possibilities seemed endless.  Perhaps there will be 7 different versions of the Chris Squire bass solo in Shilinderia Praematurus!

Might go for it but will largely depend on the price. I certainly wouldn't pay £100 for it but if it retails for less than £50 then I will consider it. Good quality bootlegs and 'straight from boards' type recordings usually sound better than the traditional live albums to my ears.

yeah... passing on this.  Now with a bit more period variety I'd have been all over it. Especially at that price. Not bad actually,

This would have been much more interesting if they had released it as a 14 CD box covering 7 different tours (one each from Fragile tour to the Drama tour).  As it is, it's the same 2 CDs' worth of songs 7 times.  Don't think I really need this one.  I can just buy 7 copies of Yessongs and get the same effect. 
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

I doubt every performance will be exactly the sameLOL
 
I found the ELP bootleg series very interesting as even on the same tour and on the same tracks there were very obvious differences. I also discovered that ELP were a lot 'looser' when they thought they were NOT being recorded for a live album. Live albums can sound a bit stiff for this very reason.

YES lost again a very good opportunity to release more live recordings with the Anderson-Squire-Bruford-Wakeman-Howe line-up. I think that from "Yessongs" the best recorded songs are the ones which were recorded with this line-up ("Perpetual Change", "Long Distance Runaround" and "The Fish"). I don`t have anything against Alan White, but, as he have said in interviews, he thinks that it was a bit unfair from the band  to release a live album like  "Yessongs" when he was still learning how to play with the band. He did a great job under the circunstances of having to learn all the material in three days before the tour started, and his performances are good, but his drum kit did not sound very well in "Yessongs", and maybe it was more due to the tuning or the recording of the individual drums (mainly the snare drum) that anything else. And as a whole the recordings of the other songs of "Yessongs" with White on drums are not very good, as many people have said. Maybe YES should have released the rest of the songs with Bruford from the same recordings of the same concerts they released with him in "Yessongs". I am not going to spend my money on buying the same set list of songs from  "Yessongs" from several concerts of the same tour.

Hi,
 
I can't believe these folks ... still not showing anything from TFTO, or even Relayer. I'm sick and tired of the same old crap!
 
It's not worth buying, unless you want to make sure Roger Dean gets his nickels ... but this is just another crass commercial attempt by a few members to rip as much money as they can.
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you will, eventually, find your own art inside! Try it!

yeah... it would have been cool to get a official live release with the whole of the Tales tour..  or even the relayer tour just to get Soundchaser live man.  The QPR version just make the itch harder to scratch with the horrid quality.

the old adage 'you pays your money and you takes your choice' is always true
 
It depends entirely on price for me. Yep it smells a bit but if they make it reasonably priced then I think it could be a good purchase. The only price I've seen quoted for it so far is about £66 (not inc P&P) and I will not be getting it for that. If it goes well and makes commercial sense then perhaps further releases will follow. Yes as far as I know is not a registered charityWink
