Yessongs
3.  Yessongs by Yes
The list author says:
  "Sure, this monster live set is fatally compromised by iffy production...but one listen to The Fish will cement in your mind that Squire is the UK's greatest living bassist (RIP John Entwistle)."

Fish Out of Water

Close to the Edge
5.  Close to the Edge by Yes
The list author says:

Going for the One
6.  Going for the One by Yes
The list author says:
  "Revitalised Yes after a mid-70s slump, with the smokin' title track and the beautiful Awaken. And with a cover like that,buying it from Amazon will save you the embarrasment of buying it in the shops."

Yesterdays

3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Drama

Fragile [Expanded & Remastered]
9.  Fragile [Expanded & Remastered] by Yes
The list author says:
