3 stars This is a good compilation, released in 1975, two or three months after "Relayer" was released. The L.P. has a green inner sleeve with credits about each song. It also has individual photos of Anderson, Banks, Bruford, Kaye, Squire, Howe, Wakeman and even Alan White (who doesn`t appear in the songs). It seems that this album was going to be released in 1974, as the "(P)1974" in the label and in the cover says.But in several YES discographies in the Intenet and in the book "The Complete Rock Family Trees" (wirtten by Peter Frame), I found that it was released until February 1975. . I like almost every song selected for this album, except "Astrall Traveller" and "Then", two songs which are not among my favourites. But the rest of the songs are very good. As the inner sleeve says, "America" was released in an Atlantic Records L.P. compilation in 1972 called "The New Age of Atlantic", with songs by other artists. "Dear Father" was the B-side of the single "Sweet Dreams", and it is a good song too (there is a recording for the B.B.C. of this song, released in the album "Something`s Coming", with a different arrangement, and without the orchestral arrangement). I don`t know if this album is still "necessary" , since the recently new remastered C.D versions with bonus tracks of the "Time and a Word" and "Fragile" albums have bonus tracks. It seems that "America" appears in the new remastered version of "Fragile", and "Dear Father" in the new remastered version of "Time and a Word".
