Biography

Far and away the longest lasting and the most successful of the '70s progressive rock groups, Yes proved to be one of the lingering success stories from that musical genre. The band, founded in 1968, overcame a generational shift in its audience and the departure of its most visible members at key points in its history to reach the end of the century as the definitive progressive rock ...

This is not Yes at their best. That said, if you are an Yes afficionado, you simply must have this one too.

Ok, so this is a reissue of the original mini-album of the video of the 90125 tour. Always an odd concept, being a couple of songs and several featured solos by the individual players. These were mostly the bits edited out of the video. So, any good? Yes. Good playing, well recorded and the complete songs are crackers. The CD adds a couple of extra songs, one of which is significantly edited from the video performance. Still, a nice thing to have until a complete audio version of the show surfaces (please?0

Yes! It Can Happen! 1 Nov 2011
By SoundDiscoveries - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As a die hard Yes fan I keep my eyes open for anything by this legendary band that has been remastered and even though this has been out of print for what seems like an eternity, I have been lucky enough to own the original Japanese version since it was released over ten years ago.

This expanded edition is a must have and contrary to the belief that Japanese versions are superior to domestic releases, it is not true here. This expanded edition has two added songs originally not included that make it well worth the purchase and the remastering job is very noticeable without having to own a thousand dollar stereo system.There is not an expanded booklet,but better looking artwork then the original release.

Thank you Yes and Friday music for making this available and also for still making CD's available to us people who still appreciate a real physical product and not subjecting us to mandatory downloads to get great music.

An Acceptable Document, but also A Lost Opportunity 26 Sep 2014
By F. J. PRISCO - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album was originally released in the pre-CD days of 1985, and served as additional fodder for the fact that the exhaustively long 90125 tour had finally ended, the final date now being sold on video. Good marketing sense: single sells the album, album sells the tour, tour sells the merch, and the you sell it all again on video. Cynics may cry "money grab" but this model works because people do in fact happily buy the stuff.

Is it worth it? Well, sorta -- if you organized these performances amongst & between the 90125 songs, you'd have a pretty decent concert. Toward that end, this expanded edition's two additional band songs almost reach a balance -- and save the ardent collector from having to dig up the two singles where they previously appeared.

Best moments? "Solly's Beard" features nice acoustic guitar from Trevor Rabin, even if he does like to drift off into show-offy stuff [hey, it was the 80s!]. Jon's voice-and-synth "Soon" is kinda nice, and leaves the full-band versions from the 70s sounding a little overly busy. Chris Squire and Alan White's "Whitefish" is largely just a compendium of Squire's riffs from songs no longer played by the band: "The Fish", "Sound Chaser" and "Tempus Fugit" -- all pretty great riffs. "Amazing Grace" is still a great melody; in person this solo performance is pretty darn tremendous. In comparison, Tony Kaye's "Si" is just a mishmash of stuff thrown together, like the opening from Bach's "Toccata & Fugue in D minor". It doesn't go anywhere, it doesn't do anything -- it's not really anything in itself, and doesn't demonstrates Mr Kaye's greatest strengths.

Meanwhile, this expanded version still shows the same blind spot of the original. You see, the 90125 songs had been so painstakingly arranged that there was nothing left to chance. Consequently, there is little point to live versions of those songs. The only changes were the occasional intro or outro, and that's what you hear here.

The Lost Opportunity here was to show the recasting of the band's older material. Trevor's contributions to "Yours is No Disgrace" or "Starship Trooper", "And You & I" -- even the well-worn "Roundabout" and "All Good People" -- that's part of what made these concerts. Why, they might even expand this to a double CD, and simply issue an entire concert. The recordings exist -- the 1984 Dortmund show that provided the live rendition of "I'm Down", for example or a pre-FM source of the 1985 Buenos Aires show, with its *seventeen-minute* "Trooper" finale. That's the proper context: one-third new, one-third old, one-third solo spots. Maybe one of these days, eh?

I'm glad they came out with the extended version of this. The additions were great! Even the solos were extended.

Great Expanded Edition 20 Dec 2012
By Dave Wilkinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The two additional tracks on this cd are the b-sides from the It Can Happen and Rhythm of Love singles. This means that City of Love still fades out, and It Can Happen is a different recording than the one on the 9012-live dvd. Sound quality of the cd is marginally better. There is no reason to purchase this cd if you already own it unless you, like me, view this recording of It Can Happen to be the best the 90125-era Yes ever did. Jon Anderson sounds impassioned as he sings and the rest of the band sings and plays their guts out. I must have played this recording 500 times in high school and my 45-rpm record is showing its age, so I was thrilled to get this version of It Can Happen on cd. Other line-ups may have had more technically proficient musicians, but the 90125 tour stands head and shoulders above all the other tours I saw Yes when it comes to enthusiasm and the sheer joy of making music, and nowhere is this more definitively proven than on this recording of It Can Happen.

It's About Time 12 Feb 2014
By wildwielder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I waited for years for this essential document of live cuts of Yes during the beginning of the Trevor Rabin period to be reissued, and finally it's here. It has so many great, rare performances that are absolute gems for a Yes fan to own, and is a great companion to 90125. And now with a couple of high-quality bonus tracks thrown on, it's expanded from an EP to a full album, not to mention the great remastered sound. A must-have.
