4 stars A bit of a disappointment when I first saw it, really. I was expecting far more songs from this one than I got. Well, the original Yessongs was a triple LP and had MANY classics. Where is Siberian Khatru that opens so greatly the CD? Or the complete Starship Trooper? I had to wait until Keys To Ascension to have them on a "proper" live DVD: one that really delivers a complete set of classics (with a far bettter lightning and filming, but then this is over 20 years later).

Having said that I also must say Yessongs, the DVD, is not bad at all. In fact, to see the band in their glory days is wonderful. Even if the sound and image quality are only average and the set is quite short for a Yes concert, they were at their peak creatively and is a document of an era. The absolute highlight is the fantastic version of Close To The Edge, but the whole DVD is good.

Conclusion: a must have for any truly Yes fan. It is the only known footage of this great period and you only wish it had more songs and Bill Bruford on the drumstool to make it perfect. 3,5 stars.
