2 stars Decent rarity item for fans of the first two albums.

Early Yes live on the BBC, this is a neat little historical gem. It's true that the material from Yes' first two albums is a far cry from what they would accomplish later but this is still good and interesting. The playing is dynamic and energetic, there is nothing like experiencing the exuberance of youth whether we're talking Yes, Zeppelin, The Who, or anyone else. Hearing music from people before they were millionaires you might say.

Banks' guitar is ferocious in places and Bruford attacks his drums like a madman. You also get the rare opportunity to hear the song "For Everyone" which is sort of an early version of Starship Trooper. It's a fascinating treat to hear a Yes classic like that in an early developmental stage.

The sound quality can be a bit rough in places but isn't too bad. 2.5 stars here because this is both "for fans only" and also "good."
