2 stars This album is clearly only for Yes collectors. With only songs from their first two albums, which on there own don't have a wide prog appeal, and lower recording quality with several doubles (Something's Coming, Everydays, Sweetness, Every Little Thing, Sweet Dreams, Then), only Yes fans will likely enjoy this.

Luckily, I am a Yes fan, and for Yes fans who enjoyed their early two discs (the "Peter Banks" era), there is much here to enjoy. The versions of Astral Traveller and Every Little Thing are particularly good. It also contains Something's Coming and Dear Father, which, if you didn't have the Rhino Remasters of Yes and Time and a Word, could even count as "new" tracks. At the time of its release, "For Everyone" (which would eventually evolve into part of Starship Trooper) was also only available on this collection, although it has since been made available on "The Word Is Live".

While I rate this as 2 stars, it is not for all Yes fans. It is for Yes fans that appreciate the first two Yes discs enough to want two more discs of the same material in lower quality recordings. I'd give it a 3/5 star rating for Yes fans.
