4.0 out of 5 stars sold short, 25 July 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Classic Yes (Audio CD)
Unless a later digitally remastered version of 'Classic Yes' has reduced the number of tracks on this fine album, the track listing above is selling the world's greatest live band short by omitting two live tracks, namely Roundabout and I've Seen All Good People.
There have been many compilation albums by Yes issued over the years, but this is probably the one I return to most. Whilst I tend to agree overall that the current line up of Anderson, Squire, Howe, Wakeman and White is probably the best, I still feel the jazz influenced drumming of Bill Bruford, featured on all the studio tracks from this compilation, is incredible. The slow build up on Heart of the Sunrise, after the frenetic opening, provides Bruford with the opportunity to demonstrate his prowess and the result is awesome.
I saw Yes perform in Birmingham just a few weeks ago, 33 years after first seeing them, and they are still as enthusiastic about performing, and their playing retains the artistry whilst now displaying new depths of interpretation of their older material. This is a great introduction to work from the 'golden years', but don't stop here - listen to later live versions and their later studio stuff and marvel at their virtuosity and verve!

I agree with "A Customer". Bill Bruford, along with Ian Paice, is one of the great rock drummers who can also swing with the best of them.
