26 of 29 people found the following review helpful By Mr. James A. H. Baird on 12 May 2004
Format: DVD
As I was there 29 years ago, it was great to get my hands on this and relive a great day out in London. But why is it only "Vol 2"? There was a video available a year or two ago as an import at HUGE cost which covered the whole concert and included such omitted gems as "Close to the Edge" and "Gates of Delirium". However, this is a good "edited highlights"! "And You and I" kicks off but sadly without the beautiful intro. However, thereafter it is great. "Ritual" follows and is as good as ever.
The encore is "Roundabout" (energetic but a bit hit and miss and why no shots of the crowd bouncing and clapping along?), "Sweet Dreams" (excellent) and then a rather loose "Your's is No Disgrace" to finish but with some fine Howe fretwork. All in all a great reminder of what Yes were like in their pomp and of how Moraz was fine but he wasn't Wakeman!

A good Historic Presentation of Yes 30 Dec 2007
By David Carlin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Many die hard Yes Fans know about these videos. I've had these videos as bootlegged editions bought years ago. Yes never released this video taped concert at QPR because of the audio problems.

This was originally intended to be a formal recording of the band using Video Cameras instead of Film. At least 4 cameras were utilized but the audio was taken direct from the flawed mixing console auxilliary out. The problem lied with a loose cable somewhere on one of the sub channels. Quite a shame, but this still offers a good look at the stage presentation and still shows the virtuosity of the band during the time of the Relayer material. There is no documented video anywhere else of the song "To be Over" and "Sound Chaser" during this period so this is a true relic. The band performs fluidly and one can feel that they know this music on a closer basis since coming off from the recording recently of Relayer. Also, this is the only video account with Patrick Moraz in the band. The years with Moraz in my opinion allowed Yes do sound incredibly different and more Jazzier. Bill Bruford once said in an interview that Wakeman did not have a blue note in him. Moraz gave them a different perspective here. It would have been nice to have heard Wakemans interpretation of Gates of Delirium and Sound Chaser.

The band cannot be blamed for the recording flaws here. Regardless, the stage presentation and showmanship are excellent still and this is worth the purchase.

Truly Excellent ! 31 July 2004
By Mr. B. R. Clarke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
In my review of Vol. 1 of this two part set, I said that the sound mix stinks. By the time the second half of this concert had arrived, the sound engineer appears to have mastered the mixing desk ... the sound balance on Vol. 2 is great! We can now hear Steve Howe's guitar virtuosity, the bass lines are clearly audible, and again Patrick Moraz is inspirational on keyboards. If you're a Yes fan, buy it. If you're not ... then you will be after getting this! For me, Yes at Q.P.R. Vol. 2 is one of the greatest progressive rock recordings in existence.

A Great Complement to Yessongs 26 Nov 2008
By Chrysanthemum Hyphus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This video is a great video record of how Yes was during their Relayer tour. The sound mix isn't perfect, but completely listenable. Unlike Volume 1 which reflected serious sound problems at the original show, the virtuosity of all of the musicians, particularly Steve Howe, comes through very clearly. "And You and I" and "Ritual" are performed magnificently, with Patrick Moraz's contribution yielding a different take on the material. The downside to this video is it's length; considered by itself it's short. Even so, Yes is arguably at its best live, and seeing this music played live is much more moving than just hearing it live.

(Relayer tour) Great concert, however poor sound quality. 11 Jan 2006
By R. Webb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The reason I did not give this 5 stars is because of the sound quality.I agree with "B.R Clarke". The sound quality on the first disk is very poor. It seems that the source of the poor sound was in the orginial concert, and not in the disk itself. The opening song "Sound Chaser" (disk one) cuts out from the P.A. system. Jon Anderson makes a comment about there being "buzzes" in the P.A. during the concert. Such as it is. I still think this DVD is worth buying. The concert was great. Steve Howe,s guitar solo,s, Patrick Morez,s solos,s and "Ritual" is well worth the price. Plus this was an outside concert in 1975 and the "best" was saved for last, after dark.

STONE OF YEARS For The YES FANS!... 27 May 2008
By Jesmorh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is an historic document of the world tour for RELAYER. In "1975 at Q.P.R., Vols. 1 & 2: Live", with Patrick Moraz on Keyboards, the band showed an extended musical maturity and an unexploited experimental side never before listened in the Yes catalogue, with songs like "Sound Chaser" (Prog jazz fusion track) or the great "Gates Of Delirium" (In an intent to emulate the "Close to the Edge" esque-songs). The concert is maravellous in spite of the lack of good sound or camera takes, but enough to enjoy a great show with songs like "Ritual", a dinamic good version of "Sweet Dreams" or the acoustic enigmatic version of "Long Distance Runaround". In this tour the band used a big Roger Dean's scenography with an amazing moving syncronized lights. It really worth the prize to pay for this DVD, just to have a few great images of what YES were doing at that moment...Good Luck!
