Review by loserboy
4 stars Pulled this album out of the collection and had to capture a few words about this tasty double album. 100% YES captured live performing some of their best songs including a simply rivetting version of "The Gates Of Delerium" and "Ritual" (split in 2 pieces). This album is really a mix of songs across various shows with WAKEMAN and MORAZ swapping throughout. The end result though is a great double album full of wonderful positive energy and incredible musicianship.

2 stars A lengthy ritual

"Yesshows" is not my favourite live album by Yes (and there are many to chose from!) by any means. I find the general recording quality, and indeed the performances, to be disappointing when compared to collections such as "Yessongs", and "Keys to ascension". The main reason this album is of interest is the presence of Patrick Moraz on keyboards on some (but not all) of the tracks.

Well over half of the album is taken up by the two feature pieces, namely "The Gates of Delirium", and "Ritual". Both the version of "Gates of Delirium" on "Relayer" and the one which appears here feature Patrick Moraz on keyboards, and the rendition here is pretty faithful to the original version. Rick Wakeman performed on the studio version of "Ritual" so it is interesting to hear the Moraz interpretation which is included here. The track is somewhat longer than the original version due to the extended percussion section. It was split over one and a half sides of the LP version giving a slightly disjointed feel, but has been rejoined on the CD version.

The remaining tracks do not really add anything to their superior studio counterparts, and at times sound significantly inferior.

One for fans looking to complete their collection only.

Review by Philo
2 stars Many rock bands through the seventies released classic and ultimate live albums but then when it came to a later live release the same bands fell flat on their faces as the energy subsided and other negative forces took hold. While Yes had musically peaked and carried the massive momentum on the triple Yessongs set, the contractual obligated Yesshows album is a very dull affair. After keyboard player Rick Wakeman and vocalist Jon Anderson exited the band and the release of Drama which featured a couple of Buggles, this album was culled from gigs on the Going For The One tour in 1977 but the album sounds uninspired, tepid and lethargic. A good live album should give the listener the impression and excitement of a show which explodes, builds momentum and finishes with a fitting crescendo as if you were there in the audience soaking up the atmosphere. Yesshows sounds very patched together and inconsistent and fails to to grab the attention of the listener. The songs sound overlong and tired and the production is rather unforgiving and for the Yes completist it may be an essential album but for the passive fan Yesshows is an unnecessary and overindulgent collection of live songs from an era of discontent in the Yes ranks. The eighties had arrived and this was the decade that spelled the death knell for many of the rock bands that dominated the seventies but Yes would recover and reinvent themselves and adapt to the new ways and waves with the very successful 90125 album in 1983.
Review by Guillermo
4 stars I saw this album in a record shop in late 1980, and I asked one of the shop`s employees if Anderson and Wakeman were in the album, and he said to me that it was true. Even if the recordings and the mixing of this album are not very good (the keyboards are very much in the background, the bass guitar is higher in the mix, as the drums, the guitar sometimes sounds thin), this live album has very good live versions of "Parallels" (with a great synthesizer solo by Wakeman), "Going for the One" (despite Wakeman`s keyboards are almost inaudible), "The Gates of Delirium" (a heavy performance, with Patrick Moraz almost inaudible in some parts) and "Wonderous Stories" (with a good mixing). "Time and a word" also suffers from bad mixing (again of the keyboards), but it is a good version. "Don`t Kill the Whale" is a better recording (done by the B.B.C., with a better mixing). I don`t like very much the "Topographic Oceans" album, but the live version of "Ritual" included here (divided in two parts in the L.P. version, "Part 1" in Side 3 and "Part 2" in Side 4), with Moraz on keyboards, is good in the "Part 1", but I found some musical excess in the "Part 2", too much "noise" in my opinion, but with a good job by Moraz (again in the background most of the time). It seems that this album was going to be released in 1979, so Chris Squire (credited as mixer in the gatefold cover with two recording engineers) mixed these songs, but the album wasn`t released then. But in late 1980 the record label released these mixes in this live album. I don`t know if the remastered 2 C.D. version sounds better, but I think it should sound better. I only have the 2 L.P. version.

4 stars Yesshows released in 1980 was a welcome addition to the Yes library. It will never eclipse the epic Yessongs but it is still an excellent album. ' The Gates of Delirium' and ' Ritual' are both great live as is the Squire compostion ' Parallels'. There is even a jamming piece which runs for about 3 minutes where you can hear Anderson having a great time while the other band members fine tune their pieces. Not the best live album but certainly a very enjoyable one.

3 stars A interesting album, this - enables the listener to finally come down off the fence in the great Wakeman/Moraz debate, as this is the only live album in Yes's career to feature both men side by side, so to speak (although Moraz's contributions are mainly restricted - if that is the right word in this context - to the huge epics, Gates Of Delerium and Ritual).

The closing section of 'Firebird Suite' opens the album (as usual), and we are then thrown straight into 'Parallels', 'Time And A Word' and Howe's manic slide-guitar driven 'Going For The One', all very well played (although Anderson's vocals are a little weak in 'Time And A Word'), but at times with Squire's bass guitar a little too far forward in the mix to the detriment of Wakeman/Howe.

Notwithstanding the above, however, I, like many people, went straight to side 2 of the album when originally purchased on vinyl, to hear Gates Of Delirium live; this version does not disappoint! For just under 23 minutes, the listener is transported by Yes at their most powerful, enthusiastically driving through this epic, but remaining faithful to the studio original, all leading up to Anderson's stunning vocals on 'soon' and the slow, almost laid back coda to those final half dozen synth chords, closing the piece - pure progressive rock magic.

Following TGOD would always be difficult, so I am at a loss as to why they chose to do so with Don't Kill The Whale..... never my favorite piece, but played well, nonetheless.

Wakeman & Topographic Oceans.....hmmmm, not his favorite album, but still difficult to imagine another person playing his music; refreshing then, when Moraz stamps his mark on Ritual with such authority and almost makes it his own (Wakeman would probably say "and he can keep it"). Clocking in at over 28 minutes, it far outstrips the studio version timewise, and (it has to be said) in terms of self-indulgence, especially in the second half.

After such a workout, Yes can be forgiven for laying back a little and finishing the album with Wondrous Stories, a short, sharp, but perfect little number (like a small glass of '67 port finishing off a banquet...... sort of...).

Overall, then, a fine live album, by one of the few dinosaurs still making and performing good progressive music at the very tail end of the '70s...... in the wings, however, Geoff Downes and Trevor Horn waited to pounce......

But that's another story

4 stars I found this as a very good double live LP, it's highlights for me being the two epics "The Gates Of Delirium" and "Ritual", which were performed with PATRICK MORAZ. Also the tracks "Parallels" and "Going For The One" are much better here than on the original sterile studio albums. Also the covers by Roger Dean are exceptionally fine!

4 stars After another great live album which is called Yessongs, in 1980 they released this album called Yesshows, performing some songs from Topographic Oceans to Tormato, this is a completely different track list than in Yessongs, and not for that reason this is less good.

One particular characteristic is that was performed in some songs by Patrick Moraz in keyboards, and in the other ones by Rick Wakeman,, both with their particular style, both excellent keyboard players. This concert starts with the opening song from 1977 release "Going for the One ", "Parallels", with that keyboard intro, and then the bass and the unique style of Howe`s guitar, good song to opene the album, I like it, and it sounds as good as the album version. The second song is the only early Yes song, "Time and a Word", it is maybe not the song which people is expecting in a concert, maybe this is the weakest part, anyway I like the song, and the extraordinary voice of Jon Anderson, this song I think is strictly for singing, ( theres a time, and the time is now and its right for me.) Then after that soft song, comes a powerful beginning of "Going for the One" , a great performance of that song, is very complex and guitar sound is really great ( last Yes`visit to Mexico City, they opened with Going for the One, it was really great), this concert is a 1977 sound oriented. But then, the best moment , my favourite epic, a extraordinary song, and a really really great performance, "Gates of Delirium", this song is just amazing, im a huge Wakeman`s fan, but that's ironic, this is my favourite Yes`song, and without Wakeman, but the work of Moraz is awesome and it makes me forget abou The Keyboard Wizard, I don't know if this version of Gates of Delirium is my favourite, because here I find more power at the moment of play it, vocals are so emotional, Jon Anderson has a great voice , I think he made in this live version a great effort to please the audience, musically I don't have nothing more to add, because the music is simply superb, the bass of Squire is always perfect, and I think this is the heart of this album, listen to it, Gates of Delirium, impressive.

I have this album in LP, and that was the first side of it, the second side begins with a "protest" song "Don't Kill the Whale", as the title says, we can imagine the topic of lyrics, in this song we can listen again beautiful and great guitar solos. "Ritual ( Nous Sommes du Solei)", the main track of the controversial 1974 album "Tales from Topographic Oceans", which after that release Wakeman left the band, here this song was played by Moraz instead Wakeman, and was divided in 2 parts, another great epic, with excellent changes and superb musicianship, maybe not for everybody`s ears, but for me this was an amazing performance, ( I remember this song when I saw them, and wow, I was amazed). To finish this album "Wonderous Stories", another track from "Going for the One" album, this is a classic song of Yes, is quite nice, but not my favourite, maybe this is one of the bad things of this album, maybe another song instead this could be better to finish this live album.

After all, I really enjoy it, I think it is great, and we know what Yes is, a monster of progressive rock, and here we can make sure of it. For that reasons I highly recommend it, and this album deserves at least 4 stars.

Review by ZowieZiggy
4 stars When I saw the tracklist of this album, I was quite surprised. So many numbers belonging to such different period of their career : "Time & A Word" (1970) and "Wonderous Stories" (1977) for instance. But you understand why when you read the CD booklet information (I have the CD version). It was recorded from different concerts, with different line-ups. The two epics "The Gates of Delirium" and "Ritual" were recorded in Detroit (17th August 76) with Moraz on the keys. "Parallels" & "Wonderous Stories" come from Rotterdam (24th November 77). Another two from the Empire Pool at Wembley (different dates : 27th & 28th October 78); and finally "Going for the One" from Frankfurt (18th November 78).

This combination might be a bizzarre choice and I would probably prefer each period to fill out one CD on a remastered issue (which could have been expanded like Yes did for almost each of their earlier releases). The double CD version being just a copy of the original double album. It is a pity because during this tour, "CTTE" was in the tracklist and would have been a marvelous bonus track. There is also little information on the Cd booklet (they consist mostly of the lyrics). The only track totally out of time being ... "Time & A Word".

It is indeed a very short double CD : seventy five minutes !. There is almost no interaction with the audience which is a pain. Some tracks are cut abruptly after their rendition (almost no aplause) as if we were short of space ! The "Going For The One" tour is well represented here (three tracks - but I miss "Awaken" of course - out of seven in this live album). I saw this tour actually in Antwerp on Saturday, November 26 1977 and I can tell you that it was a good one).

The opening "Firebird" turns beautifully into the rythmy "Parallels" after 1'28". The comparison with "Firebird" and "Siberian" in YesSongs is amazing. This version of "Parallels" is at times accelerated quite a bit (too much IMO). I like an awful lot this live version of "Time & A Word" : Jon really puts again a HUGE lot of emotion in here; a great, great moment. The intro words (one of the very few ones on this live album) for the ecological "Don't Kill the Whale" is hardly audible ("This is a song about the factory ship industry that seem to get rid of too many whales" ... says Jon). At the end of the song there is a little jam session during which Jon thanks the crew. It is one of the (too) few moments during which you can actually notice that this is a live album. "Gates of Delirium" sounds more rocky / heavy than the studio version. The rythmics are GORGEOUS : Alan and Chris being really great. At times as well, I have the same feeling as in "Parallels" : too fast (again : are we running short of space) ? The "Soon" moment being as always very, very emotional. The audience seems to appreciate a lot.

Moraz's interpretation of "Ritual" is good but I really don't like the lenghtly percussion section. It lasted for 2'45" on the studio version and here it is extended to five boring really noisy and pointless minutes : I mention this already in my review for TFTO. My comparison was that this section is quite similar to "The Waiting Room" from "The Lamb". The difference in the live performances is that in "The Lamb" live (I was attending this show in Brussels, 1975) Genesis raised the (poor) level of this song to an acceptable one. Here we have the reverse : from a poor studio section, we get an even poorer live rendition. Really, it is the (only) bad part of this live album. But don't get me wrong : Alan is absolutely brilliant on the other parts of the song, hitting his drum kit like if his life was depending on his play. The last track "Wonderous Stories" is just as wonderful as the studio version. The sound quality, although not perfect, is waaaaaaaaaay ahead the "YesSongs" one. Four stars for this YesLive.

Review by Chicapah
2 stars There are many good reasons for putting out a live album. One would be that the band/artist is at times better on stage than they are in the studio and they want to give the fan/listener a truer rendition of their creation as Genesis did with "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" on "Archives I." Another rationale is that they generate a high level of energy in concert that can't be conveyed from inside a closed environment like Deep Purple did with "Made In Japan" and Yes themselves did with their earlier "Yessongs." Yet another is to give their supporters new material in a novel way as The Mahavishnu Orchestra did on "Between Nothingness & Eternity." However there are some less-than-admirable reasons, as well. Foremost of which is to fulfill the terms of a recording contract with their label and I tend to believe that may have been the case with "Yesshows" because none of the aforementioned good reasons apply.

As on their initial live offering, the piped in final strains of Stravinsky's "Firebird Suite" are heard first except this time the group teases the audience by playing along with the taped music. Once the fanfare subsides Rick Wakeman cranks up the introductory cathedral organ sounds of "Parallels" and off you go. It's a faithful rendering of the song with guitarist Steve Howe playing some dazzling runs toward the end. The vocals are strong with frontman Jon Anderson coming through clear as a bell. (All that being said, I still prefer "Siberian Khatru" as a more powerful, unbeatable start from the gate.) Next you get a welcome blast from the past as they perform a tasteful update of "Time and a Word." Jon's uncharacteristic emotion-filled voice lifts the song and gives it new relevance. It's one of the few highlights. Without a pause Howe tears right into the rocking "Going for the One." Evidently the privilege of mixing this project fell to bassist Chris Squire so it's understandable that his Rickenbacker guitar is out front throughout the proceedings, especially on this song. It's another near note-for- note run through but the tune suffers greatly from the fact that you can hardly hear Wakeman's keyboards at all. The duly respected "Gates of Delirium" follows and it has both great and not-so-great qualities as a concert piece here. It starts off well with Anderson emoting some rare grit through his vocals and the band projecting some tight energy. Chris and drummer Alan White are a solid, powerful rhythm section and Howe is at peak form but poor Patrick Moraz is woefully out of his league as he tries to keep pace with them. I'll admit that he turned in the performance of a lifetime when he laid down his intricate parts on this song in the studio but he lags a step behind on stage. After the tumultuous battle segment they lead you to the climax but the payoff just doesn't achieve liftoff for me. I adore this part when it arrives in the "Relayer" version but here Steve loses control of his steel guitar echo effect and the triumphant melody runs amok, ruining the moment. The beautiful "Soon" ascends gracefully from the transitional "fog machine" section and doesn't disappoint but Howe's playing continues to suffer from overindulgence in the echo department. (Enough already, Steve!) "Don't Kill the Whale" is next and all I can say is that they can put all the lipstick they want on this pig but it's still a sow. (Unsightly tunes should be left at home, not taken on the road.) The song's embarrassingly out of date phrase "dig it" is only apt if it refers to the grave this tune belongs in. Once you get past that pothole you are treated to a loose improvisational snippet wherein Jon takes the time to thank the road crew while the rest of the group farts around. (If this isn't desperate filler I don't know what is.) Anderson tries to be hip as he pleads for the "funk" to be removed from his face and actually says that it's "getting to be a soul show now." No, Jon, it isn't. I know that Rick has said that he never liked "Tales From Topographical Oceans" but when you compare what he contributed to what Moraz does on "Ritual" you'd think it was Wakeman's all-time masterpiece. Patrick timidly hangs far back from start to finish and when he gets his moments to shine he disappears in Rick's giant shadow. There's some neat things going on during "Nous Sommes Du Soleil" and when Squire dishes out some furious bass guitar shredding things get heated but the magnificent "At All" section that is so effective on the studio version fails to thrill. And the extended drum/percussion passage is a bust mainly because White gets drowned out by too much excessive noise. This complex song just never gels. At least the last tune, the gorgeous "Wonderous Stories," is worth the wait because Wakeman is back (Hooray!) and he shows you why he was pretty much irreplaceable. It's an exquisite song performed impeccably.

When you consider that this is supposedly the best of their stage recordings from over two years of touring it connects a lot of the dots as to why Anderson and Wakeman had already said "adios" when this came out. It's not a total waste of time but I can't recommend that it top any progger's must have list. It is what it is. The tape doesn't lie. This is what one of the best groups in the world sounded like during those difficult years when they were trying to hang on to their worldwide popularity and not abandon their legion of followers but it's obvious they had lost their center and their utopian spirit. On a more positive note I have to acknowledge Roger Dean's eye-popping, out- of-this-world artwork and the colorful action photographs inside the double LP cover. Gotta give it an extra half star just for that.

Well back then, YES was in disarray after the release of DRAMA in 1980. The band disbanded, we thought for good, and CHRIS SQUIRE holder of the key name YES, was asked to put out a YES live album for contractual reasons, so at the end of 1980, YESSHOWS was released just in time for these Christmas gifts.

We have once again a great artwork designed by Roger DEAN, though not as mesmerizing as the one produced for YESSONGS or TFTO. And guess what? the same goes for the music content!! not that's bad, no there is good YESmusic here. The main problem, i think this album will always have to be compared to its live predecessor YESSONGS!!

YESSONGS was the pantheon of a live prog album; everything in it from the cover art to the quattro-fold pack and most important , has some of the most beautiful music ever recorded by a young band bringing more life and energy to already fabulous studio- recorded epics. That's was imposiible to surpass, even to equal. Listening to YESSONGS is an magical experience to live, it's a wonderful dreamy journey to some magnificent world: a 6star album!! YESSHOWS is live album recorded by an amazing band that showcases the talent of the band, is a pleasant listening but in no way is a journey! I am sure some of YESfans understand what i mean!

One of the drawback of YESSHOWS is the somewhat inferior quality of some tracks; Nothing against GOING FOR THE ONE or PARALLELS, but they are for me the 2 weakest of the GFTO album. As for DON'T KILL THE WHALE, though pleasant, this has never been a highlight of YESmusic.

WONDEROUS STORIES and (surprise) TIME AND A WORD are nice additions, but the meat of the album are of course the 2 long epics : THE GATES OF DELIRIUM and RITUAL. The GATES is played somehow very similar to the studio version which is great, but that doesn't give me a reason to play this album more tha RELAYER and the same goes for RITUAL which is a little bit too long here; The 20mn studio version is well sufficient as it is.

The main interest is that you have PATRICK MORAZ playing the parts of WAKEMAN on RITUAL. So if you have free time on your hands, you still can compare the 2 of them . But i don't have that much time!1

So this is a good album, not great, not a masterpiece; nothing bad either, but i don't play it anymore. 3 stars i guess!!

4 stars Yesshows is Yes' second live album. The selection is mostly of material from where Yessongs left off, from Relayer through Tormato. They key reason to get this is the astounding performance on Gates of Delirium and Ritual, both played in their entirety and both featuring Patrick Moraz instead of Wakeman on the keys.

The rest of Yesshows is made up of performances of their shorter songs, Parallels, Time and a Word (from their 2nd album of the same name), Going for the One, Don't Kill the Whale, and Wonderous Stories. Not a bad selection overall, but not the masterpiece that Yessongs is. The performance and sound quality is well done.

I would rate this in four-star territory, but if you want a good taste of Yes live, try getting Yessongs or the two Keys to Ascension live albums. An excellent addition to a prog rock collection and a required purchase for Yes fans.

3 stars An unfortunate misfire.

Yes was due for another live album I suppose but this should not have been it. The excellent Yessongs covers the great material up through Close to the Edge. So the assumption is that they wanted something to cover Relayer through Tormato.

The problem with Yesshows is the song selection. I'll be brief. Drop the weaker cuts completely which are Parallels, Time and a Word, Going for the One, Don't Kill the Whale, and Wonderous Stories. You're left with the great versions of Ritual and Gates of Delirium. To those two songs, you now have 24 open minutes for which you could take your pick from Sound Chaser, To Be Over, Awaken, Turn of the Century, a better Tormato song, or more from Topographic if you wanted to add a third disc.

Laugh at me if you wish but I'd bet hard core Yes fans would rather have my mix of Yesshows than the one sitting on their shelves! As it exists, 3 stars. The two long songs are of course much better than that but I'm rating the job of presenting the overall middle period Yes material and they don't cut it in my opinion. The album artwork is some of Dean's finest and belongs in the prog art museum once we start one!

Review by Tarcisio Moura
4 stars Yesshows is a far less thrilling album than Yessongs (1973), but like his earlier live companion, it closes a chapter in Yes history. While Yessongs was their crowning achieviment, Yesshows catches them fading away. But it was a worth release, even thought I would prefer it was the recording of one show, or at least the recording of a period of time. Here it mixes Yes of the Patrick Moraz era with the time Rick Wakeman came back. Fortunatly you´ll hardly notice the differences. Their live excellence was notorious and here is the proof they had lost none of it.

Going for The One and Parallels are quite superior to their studio versions and the other tracks are also very well done. I used to hate the vynil double LP because it divided Ritual in two parts. Fortunatly I got a hold of a russian remastered copy that correted that (all the tracks are here, but it is a single CD. Much of the talking and clapping is edited, but I don´t really mind). The sound quality is very good.

Although obviously not par to Yessongs, it is however an essential live album, and documents the best songs from a rather confusing period for Yes (and prog music in general). But, performing live, they were prog masters anyway.

3 stars This live compilation album was released only 5 month after Drama and felt like an obvious cash-in on the newly reunited band. Unfortunately, anyone expecting a testament to the new lineup would be disappointed since this release is only concerns itself with the band's past.

Yesshows consists of live recordings from their 1976-78 incarnations, featuring Patrick Moraz on 2 tracks (3 if you count the original LP-version) that take up more than 60% of the album and Rick Wakeman on the rest of the material. It's clear that this record doesn't want to be a rehash of Yessongs, meaning that it's completely void of material from The Yes Album, Fragile and Close To The Edge. What we get instead is one track off Tales From Topographic Oceans, Relayer, Tormato and even the title track from Time And A Word combined with three tunes off Going For The One.

This is, in my opinion, a very lethal combination of material since there is nothing to hold these tracks together. Instead, it comes off like a collection of odds and sods that was released as a cheap cash in from both the band and the label. The playing on Yesshows is great, although I lack the magic of the original studio takes. This becomes especially apparent when listening to the over the top performance of Ritual (Nous Sommes Du Soleil). I mean, the original 22 minute version felt way too long for its own good, but this live jam just pushes those boundaries even further into obscurity.

The only track that really makes me want to revisit this album is The Gates Of Delirium and that great performance only makes me want to hear more of of that 1976-tour, even though I'll also have to revisit the 30 minute version of Ritual (Nous Sommes Du Soleil). The general mood of this live album is non-existent thanks to the constant back and forth jumps in time, but I'm sure that Yes fans will forgive Yesshows for its shortcomings since the material itself can be quite pleasant at times. Overall, a good but non-essential part of your Symphonic Prog collection.

Review by Warthur
3 stars Yesshows is a victim of Yessongs' success. The preceding live album had been so incredibly lavish, and presented so many songs, that the pre-Tales from Topographic Ocean material was more or less exhausted. (Chris Squire, who compiled this set, even stoops to including a performance of Time and a Word - a rendition which only proves how much of a step down that song is compared to the subsequent Yes repertoire).

The album also seems to have been compiled with an agenda - despite coming out after Drama, not a single song from the accompanying tour is included. And yet a tepid rendition of Don't Kill the Whale makes the grade? Oh, spare me; the material on Drama was too good to be excised from Yes history in this way. The album is further marred by the sound quality being - to my ears at least - a step below Yessongs, when considering the advancements in live recording technology over the subsequent years really shouldn't be the case.

It's not a disaster, mind. The band do the good job they usually do, and some will find the performance of Ritual featuring Patrick Moraz to be intriguing. Nonetheless, unlike Yessongs the performances here do not approach the standard of the studio renditions. One to skip unless you're addicted to live Yes, I'd say.

4 stars Respect to Yessongs there's a Bruford less and Moraz replaces Wakeman on a couple of tracks, the opener is again, as I suspect in all the concerts of that era, the Firebird's Suite by Stravinskij, but this time it's Parallels the first YES song of this double's double, not triple. This is another difference.

As in the previous live the sound quality is not the best, but again, this is how a live should sound. A perfect sound quality is always pleasant, but you risk to make the live atmosphere evaporate. However Ihave to admit that the sound quality of this live album is effectively a bit below the average.

It's "only" a double. I have a triple bootleg from the same tour and that tracklist would have been really amazing, but this official bootleg is a very good complement to Yessongs as it contains trakcs from Tales From Topographic Oceans and Going For The One plus something from Tormato and also "Time and a Word" on which Wakeman adds asomething respect to the original version.

Going For The One is a little accelerated but I like too much this song, which first conquered me to YES, so it doesn't matter, also because it has Howe in a very good shape.

Moraz plays on only two songs, but they occupy about 51 minutes of the album

It's a pity that Ritual(Nous Sommes DU Soleil) had to be split in two parts because of vinyl limits, but it's more a pity that Wonderous Stories is cut to an excerpt only. One of my favorite YES songs is shortenet to 1/5 of its original length.

In any case, "songs and shows" together are the ultimate anthology of the YES classic period. Before the rating, let me add a word for one artist who is not on those two live albums. So long Peter Banks.

3 stars Parallels

Yesshows was Yes' second live album following the amazing Yessongs. While Yessongs was recorded at the very peak of the band's career following right on the heels of the incredible trio of studio masterpieces The Yes Album, Fragile, and Close To The Edge, Yesshows was recorded over the years 1976 to 1978 and focuses on material from the subsequent studio albums Tales From Topographic Oceans, Relayer, Going For The One, and Tormato. Also included is a version of Time And A Word from the band's second album from 1970. There is no overlap at all between this album and Yessongs.

The fact that this album was recorded in various venues over several years also means that more than one line-up is involved. Rick Wakeman had left the band after the recording of Tales From Topographic Oceans and was replaced by Patrick Moraz for Relayer. The Yesshows versions of The Gates Of Delirium and Ritual feature Moraz while the rest of the tracks feature Wakeman (who returned to the band again for the recording Going For The One and subsequent tours). As such Yesshows does not run as a complete concert, but rather as a compilation of live tracks. If one bears this in mind while listening to it, I believe that one will enjoy the separate tracks on their own merits, at least I do.

The centrepiece here is the fantastic The Gates Of Delirium. The other epic track is Ritual which in this version runs for very nearly half an hour and therefore had to be split into two parts on the vinyl LP version of Yesshows. While The Gates Of Delirium is, for me at least, clearly the best track of Yesshows, Ritual is more interesting due to the fact that it is more different from its studio counterpart. For one thing, we get to hear Moraz playing on it here, while it was Wakeman that played on the studio version. Among the shorter tracks Parallels and Don't Kill The Whale are the highlights (even though the spoken word section at the end of the latter is annoying). Wondrous Stories, Going For The One, and Time And A Word are very good too, but somewhat less exciting.

Overall, Yesshows does not hold up to the quality of Yessongs. But it does remain an interesting compilation of mostly excellent live tracks that makes a nice companion to Yessongs.

3 stars 'Yesshows' - Yes (55/100)

There seems to be a general consensus that Yes' first live album Yessongs is something of a masterpiece. At two hours and six sides long, it takes the scope of the band's vision to its natural zenith, offering a cross-section of the band's best work over the span of their three most classic records. It seems fitting, then, that Yes' second live album would attempt to follow in the ambitious footsteps of Yessongs, this time largely representing the period between 1973's Tales from Topographic Oceans and Tormato, the tumultuous swansong to the band's classic era. While Tales from Topographic Oceans and Relayer are actually my two favourite Yes albums, Yesshows still seems to fall short of Yessongs in virtually every way. Besides feeling like a half-hearted addendum to their first live LP, Yesshows doesn't quite come together the way it could have. There's nothing dreadfully wrong it, but there's very little of that same refreshing magic that made Yessongs such a gem.

I don't think there could have been any way Yes could make a truly weak live album using material from their 1973-78 period. Although a live album should be judged for the way it presents material rather than the material itself, having a library of brilliant music to work with certainly makes the matter of making a good live album that much easier. In the case of Yesshows, I'm surprised it didn't work out better than it did. Tormato and Going for the One had choice cuts readily available for the energetic short-form songwriting, whilst Relayer and Tales from Topographic Oceans offered a taste of Yes at their boldest. Not to mention, there were still plenty of songs from their earlier catalogue they could submit without dubbing over the selections on Yessongs. While Yessongs had a nigh-impeccable choice of material, Yesshows is more of a mixed bag. "Going for the One" is a suitably amazing choice for the album, with an infectious chaos that translates perfectly live, and while I've never been a fan of the organ-heavy "Parallels", it's a solid way to open the performance following their signature Stravinsky's "Firebird" intro.

On the other hand, "Time and a Word" and "Wonderous Stories" do very little with the potential allotted to them by the live setting. Neither of them are particularly marvelous in studio, and there's nothing here that changes my mind any. "Don't Kill the Whale" fares a little better, but lacks the kick and punch of "Going for the One". I think the most pronounced element that defines Yesshows is actually the wasted potential for the more ambitious cuts. I've made no secret about my love towards Relayer's "The Gates of Delirium", and any track from "Tales from Topographic Oceans" would (and should) have made for an excellent cornerstone to the album. Sadly, these live renditions don't do nearly as much as I would have hoped for. Perhaps I'm comparing it too much to the vivace of Yessongs' most proggy material, but Yes' performance feels dull compared to their studio versions. With a live album, I expect to hear the music performed with more intensity and urgency than the studio. While Relayer's version of "The Gates of Delirium" sets a heavy precedent with its chaotic faux-musique concrete noise and production, Yesshows' version is dull and streamlined. Undoubtedly for the sake of vinyl limitations, the originally twenty minute "Ritual" has been split into two parts. If there's any part of the album where Yes have clearly tried to reinnovate themselves, it's with this epic, but even then I don't find myself entirely convinced. Whereas "Ritual" was originally a sleepy epic with some beautiful restraint and otherworldly atmosphere, the two halves are packed up with a noddy intro from Jon Anderson and added percussion passage towards the end. The Alan White drum showcase is a nice touch, but the introduction to "Ritual" here feels pretty undesired. Having some banter and dawdling helps to create a live impression, but here Anderson is only giving thanks to the road and laser/light people. It's good to give credit to people who have helped make a show a success, but it's entirely puzzling to hear this credit given for the part of the performance we're not seeing.

Yesshows doesn't match Yessongs in any way, nor does it offer any improvement on the muddy mixing that album had. What we have is an inferior live album that seems to acknowledge the fact it is lesser in inspiration and ambition to Yes' first bout. Released following Drama and the breakdown of Yes' classic lineup, Yesshows was compiled with the knowledge that the days of glory were now over. Maybe that sense has translated somehow into the album. It's a functional live album in most respects, but there's nothing here that would make the songs favourable over their in-studio counterparts.

3 stars After the greatness of the first 3 record live set "Yessongs" back in 1973, Chris Squire was asked to put together another live album in 1980. The tracks on this new collection came from several shows recorded earlier and the tracks were all different from the "Yessongs" album, there were no repeats between this new collection and the previous live collection, so it was basically a continuation. This new live collection was entitled "Yesshows" and would be a 2 record set this time.

This collection featured two very long tracks, "Gates of Delirium" from "Relayer" and "Ritual" from "Tales from Topographical Oceans". These two songs take up most of the time on the album leaving room for only 5 more shorter tracks. Patrick Moraz plays keyboards for the two longer tracks. He was the original studio musician for "Gates of Delirium" but was taking on the "Ritual" track which was originally done by the master Rick Wakeman. Moraz does a very impressive job on both tracks and proves himself very well here. However, Moraz left the band just before the release of "Going for the One" and the other tracks on this album are played by Rick Wakeman, who returned to the band. Other than those two tracks, you have one of the classic Yes lineups with Alan White on the drums (who is considered a classic lineup, but so is Bill Buford, they were both awesome and interchanged with each other in their comings and goings to and from the band).

Unfortunately, the sound on this collection suffers mainly because of the mix. The good thing about the mix is you hear Steve Howe and Chris Squire quite well. But overall it is unbalanced because the keyboards are mixed too deeply into the mix and get buried in the sound. Every instrument in Yes after the first inclusion of Rick Wakeman was important, and having the keyboards buried really makes the overall sound suffer greatly.

Jon's vocals do stand out in the mix okay, and his singing is on target. However, the studio versions of these songs are so much better because of the overall sound. The sound was a little weak also in "Yessongs" but not this bad. That album still turned out to be an amazing live document. This one however, pales compared to the original. As other reviewers have said, you are better off getting the previous live album or "Keys to Ascension Vol. 1 and 2" over this one. The only problem with that though, is "Gates of Delirium" is not performed live on either of those, so that makes this collection still of value and not completely obsolete. If you really need that song in a live setting, then this is the best album to get that song on.

It is always great to hear how Yes can still perform these songs so well in a live setting and it is a testament to their musicianship in the playing of these complex masterpieces. I only wish the sound and the mix was better on this. As it is, I can only rate this with 3 stars. Good, but not essential unless you need to have a live recording of "Gates of Delirium".

4 stars Review Nş 156

'Yessongs', was the first Yes' live album that was bound to be a classic. That 1973 triple LP was emblazoned with a hypnotic Roger Dean cover and comprised of material from double-header progressive rock behemoths 'Fragile' and 'Close To The Edge'. In any superficial comparison, 'Yesshows' couldn't possibly stack up. With its awkward snow scene cover, also made by Dean, and the track list spanning critically panned albums like 'Tales From Topographic Oceans' and 'Tormato', it hardly screams an essential purchase. But 'Yesshows', released in November 1980, is just as essential as any of the band's late 70's albums, with songs that often improve upon their studio counterparts.

Yes broke up for the first time in 1978 after 'Tormato', and in the attempt at replacing Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman by Trevor Horn and Geoff Downes, it was then they released their tenth studio album 'Drama'. 'Yesshows' is the second live album of Yes and was released in 1980, shortly after the release of 'Drama'. Issued as Yes were about to disband, soon after this live album, 'Yesshows' is a very important live document of their late 70's era. 'Drama' is an album with a different line up because Anderson and Wakeman left the band. To the remaining members of the group Steve Howe, Chris Squire and Alan White joined two other musicians Horn and Downes, two ex-The Buggles members.

So, the band members involved on 'Yesshows' are Jon Anderson (vocals), Chris Squire (vocals and bass guitar), Steve Howe (vocals and guitars), Rick Wakeman (keyboards), Patrick Moraz (keyboards) and Alan White (vocals and drums).

'Yesshows' is a double live album consisting of recordings from 1976 and 1978. 'Yesshows' comprises live performances ranging from the summer of 1976 to the supporting tour for their last studio album 'Tormato', in 1978, in several locations. Like the band previous debut live album 'Yessongs', 'Yesshows' begins with a classical music recording of Igor Stravinsky's the 'Firebird Suite'. Although, Rick Wakeman is the main keyboardist on the most tracks, the 1976 performances are featured by Patrick Moraz, the keyboardist of Yes in that time, after Wakeman have left the band after the release of 'Tales From Topographic Oceans'. After the release of 'Relayer' and just before the recording of 'Going For The One', Patrick Moraz left also the band and Wakeman returned to recording and release this album.

'Yesshows' has seven tracks. The first track 'Parallels' was recorded at Ahoy'-Hal, Rotterdam, Holland, in 1977 and was released on 'Going For The One', the second track 'Time And A Word' was recorded at Empire Pool, Wembley, London, in 1978 and was released on 'Time And A Word', the third track 'Going For The One' was recorded at Festhalle, Frankfurt, Germany, in 1977 and was released on 'Going For The One', the fourth track 'The Gates Of Delirium' was recorded at Cobo Hall, Detroit, Michigan, USA, in 1976 and was released on 'Relayer', the fifth track 'Don't Kill The Whale' was recorded at Empire Pool, Wembley, London, in 1978 and was released on 'Tormato', the sixth track 'Ritual (Nous Sommes Du Soleil)' was recorded at Cobo Hall, Detroit, Michigan, USA, in 1976 and was released on 'Tales From Topographic Oceans' and the seventh track 'Wonderous Stories' was recorded at Ahoy'- Hal, Rotterdam, Holland, in 1977 and was released on 'Going For The One'.

So, the material on the album is from the post 'Close To The Edge' period, with the exception of 'Time And A Word', and the album serves as a superb supplement to the live classic 'Yessongs'. The band is in top shape and delivers great performances of the material. 'Parallels' sounds in my opinion better here than it did on 'Going For The One' and the same goes for 'Time And A Word' that works better without the orchestra on the studio version. 'The Gates Of Delirium' is another demonstration of the fact that Yes was one of progressive rock's best live bands ever. Most of the second album is taken up of what I consider to be the ultimate version of 'Ritual'. The track is spread over both sides of the album and it kicks the ass off the studio version on every level, despite the great quality of the studio version.

Conclusion: 'Yesshows' comprises different recordings from different live performances between 1976 and 1978, including two different line ups. 'Yesshows' has negative points and positive points. The negative points are the inclusion of 'Time And A Word' and 'Don't Kill The Whale' that despite are two good songs hadn't quality enough to be chosen, and the non-inclusion of any song from 'Close To The Edge' is unjustifiable. The positive points are the presence of Moraz which is very rare on Yes' live albums and the fantastic performance of the band on 'The Gates Of Delirium' and 'Ritual'. This is more evident on 'Ritual', because is a longer version due to the extended percussion section. It seems even a new song. It's interesting to see the different interpretations of Moraz and Wakeman of the same track. 'Yesshows' isn't as good as 'Yessongs' is, but is undoubtedly one of the best live albums ever made. However, 'Yesshows' remains as a great live album and an essential music piece of the all musical catalogue of Yes.

Prog is my Ferrari. Jem Godfrey (Frost*)

3 stars Between the releases of their live albums Yessongs in 1973 and Yesshows on November 27, 1980, Yes had released the compilation Yesterdays and five studio albums: Tales from Topographic Oceans Relayer, Going for the One, Tormato, and Drama. Since the Drama tour was ongoing at the time - - it would end about three weeks later - - I suppose it's understandable that nothing was included from that album, although the group's September 6 show at Madison Square Garden was the subject of an FM simulcast, and tracks from said show eventually appeared on an official release.

Going for the One is represented by three songs, which account for one of the LP's four sides. Relayer is also given a side for a 22-minute rendition of "Gates of Delirium." Yesterdays and Tormato are each represented by one song, and from Tales from Topographic Oceans we have the 29-minute "Ritual," split into two parts, one on side three and one on side four - - a bit of a strange arrangement for anyone using a record changer, I would think. My first copy was a cassette, and although "Ritual" could have been included uninterrupted, I never really gave it much thought; after all, at least on the cassette, parts 1 and 2 were on the same side. However, my first copy of the CD, a nicely-packaged Japanese import, maintained the split! This struck me as unnecessary, to say the least. More recent versions, including the one I'm reviewing (the 1994 Joe Gastwirt remaster, Atlantic 82686- 2) rectify the problem, and the latest re-releases include two recordings originally included with Classic Yes: "Roundabout" and "Your Move/All Good People."

I guess the reason that I don't listen to this one as often as Yessongs is mostly due to song selection. I've never been a fan of "Time and a Word" (the song, that is), "Ritual," or "Wonderous Stories." While these are just three random songs from three different albums, they account for half of Yesshows. "Parallels," "Going for the One," and "Don't Kill the Whale" are fine, but don't add much to the originals. "Gates of Delirium" is the standout track here, and it makes me wish they'd have included the entirety of Relayer (as they had Close to the Edge on Yessongs), along with a version of "Sweet Dreams," "Close to the Edge," or some other performance with Patrick Moraz in which there'd been some variation from the album version.

Having said that, I hasten to add that the renditions of "Ritual" and "Time and a Word" on Yesshows do, in fact, vary quite a bit from their respective originals and are in fact the definitive versions. "Ritual" benefits from live performance, and here we have an extended percussion-based jam to boot. "Time and a Word" is substantially different from the version that appeared on Time and a Word. To begin with, the original featured Tony Kaye, Peter Banks, Bill Bruford, and an orchestra; on Yesshows the late- 1970s Yes puts their own spin on it.

Much of Yesshows is good performances of average songs. It pales in comparison to Yessongs, but is still one of their better live albums, and is up there with BBC Sessions 1969-1970 / Something's Coming, Union Live, and The Word is Live.
