There's a great moment in the Monty Python film "Life of Brian", where John Cleese gets upset when someone mistakes his "Judean Peoples' Front" for the "Peoples' front of Judea". The review (on this EP's review page) by Dave C is a similar situation. What Dave is actually referring to is an album called "The Symphonic Music of Yes", not "Yes Symphonic". "TSMoY" does not appear here in the list of Yes albums, as strictly speaking, it is a "Various artists" collection. It was in fact recorded in 1993, some years before the Yessymphonic Tour was even mooted, and to which it bears no direct relationship.

The actual EP referred to by this entry was an official release (not a bootleg). It was however only available at some shows during the Yessymphonic tour. Two of the tracks are studio recordings taken straight from "Magnification", the third apparently being an old live version of "Long Distance Runaround", with orchestration added later.
