Product Description

Product Description

Yes are one of British Progressive Rock's greatest and most enduring bands. This top value double CD collection is the ideal Yes primer, taking a panoramic sweep from their early days in the late 1960s, through such classics as the rapturous And You And I and on into the late seventies and early eighties, when the band scored global hit singles with classics such as Wonderous Stories, Going For The One and Owner of A Lonely Heart. This collection also shows the band at their most innovative and inventive best, with epics such as Siberian Khatruand Close To The Edge featured in their entirety. The new 2014 edition features band new official art work from Roger Dean.

OK, so there have been numerous "best of" Yes compilations over the years, so there is probably not much need for another! Saying that, at £5 it is exceptionally good value and is a great starter point for people getting interested in Yes. I would say it is a pretty good selection of songs, most of which are on the 35th anniversary compilation. But with a band that has some songs lasting over 20 minutes it is going to be a tough challenge to get everything on a double cd set. I would rather it was in chronological order too, this way you hear the development of the band over the years. So whilst we didn't really need another Yes compilations, you cannot argue with its value.

For me, YES is the greatest ever rock band....bar none. This is a superb compilation both as an introduction to the incredible world of YES, and is so cheap that die-hard fans should buy it just to hear this great collection of songs in a well-thought-out order and to keep up the collection. I'd say it's better than the 35th anniversary compilation simply because it doesn't include that DIRE rehearsal version of 'And You And I'. (Who's idea was it to use that FFS???).
Yeah, it is a cheapo, but the song selection is just right and the pieces flow really well. It clearly demonstrates the variety of the music and versatility of the band. It's not chronological, which some purists might complain about, but for me it just adds to the interest and if you already know the history and development of the band over the decades, then it doesn't matter anyway. PLUS... this edition comes with brand new original Roger Dean artwork and it's worth a fiver just for that! I bought this CD for a mate who didn't know much about YES, and he's played it to death!
Only improvement would be a re-issue on vinyl...
Just FYI: Apparently this is an officially approved re-release of an unofficial compilation of the same name from a few years ago, but without the longer pieces being cut.
Spend a fiver and enjoy!

This inexpensive compilation is not to be confused with the identically named compilation that came out in 2011. The listing is almost the same as well and presented in the same order but reduced from 25 to 20 tracks. As both the CDs in this offering are near the physical maximum capacity the explanation is that the tracks here are in their entirety and have not been shortened. While there is nothing new for existing Yes fans, it is a good into for newcomers to prog or for those who would like a snapshot of what made the band great. All the tracks are classics with no fillers. Thoroughly recommended.

I had been looking to buy a 'Yes' compilation CD for sometime, but previous offerings seemed to be compromised.
When I saw 'Wonderous Stories - The Best of Yes' on Amazon (have never seen it in any record shop), and 'Parallels' had made it onto the list, then it was a no brainer.
All the tracks are the full length studio versions with excellent sound quality and I would imagine that this CD will become the definitive 'Yes' compilation.

Brilliant, Jon Anderson has one of the best voices in my opinion. Having been a Carpenters/Barry Manilow type of person before my sister introduced me to Jon and Vangelis in the early 1980's, I always thought of the likes of Yes as 'noise' but now I am older I appreciate the voices and tunes that are there rather than just dismissing them. Thanks sis!
