This is the second live Yes album.
Following on from the mammoth Yessongs live set this covers Yes from Relayer to Tormato.
The sound quality is brilliant and the tracks, though few in number, provide a taste of Yes in concert.
From the opening track, Parallels, you get a taste of Yes in full flow and near the height of their powers. I have also felt that listening to Yes live is better than Yes in the studio. Their sound seems to be more "alive" and fuller in concert than on most of their records, especially those from the early 70's.
Even Ritual, the best track from the over indulgent Topographic Oceans album, sounds far better live.
The best thing about this offering is that you do not get the solo items that were a big part of Yessongs but just the full ensemble tracks.
You also get to judge Patrick Moraz's keyboard sounds against those of Rick Wakeman. You decide which you prefer....
Well worth the cost to purchase a superb live album. One to recommend to fans and new comers.

Approach with caution, this is NOT the version with bonus tracks, despite Amazon claiming it is. However the missing tracks ( I've seen all good people and Roundabout) have been release before on the 'Classic Yes' release. You may well have versions of them on Yessongs, Keys to Ascension, House of Blues and Tsongas, so a fifth version may not be a great loss.
The songs that are included? Well it is Yes in all their pomp and glory, and includes a truly wonderful version of the Gates of Delirium. What more do you need to know?

YES, raw, loud and live! The only way to listen to them! Send your family away for the weekend, warn the neighbours and turn this up!! The whole album is about individual artistes coming together and trying to outdo each other with some bonecrunching solos. From the pulsating opening track 'Parallels' (I bought it for this alone!) you know you're going to be moved. With some fantastic efforts from Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman on this track alone, you know you're in for a treat. 'The Gates Of Delirium' and 'Ritual' build to such a crescendo that my bass speakers nearly gave up! Then there's Jon Anderson, calming everything down with his piercing lyrics, especially on 'Time and a Word' and 'Nous Sommes Du Soleil'. Originally produced in 1980 this CD has been digitally remastered and produces fine sound quality. Oh, stop reading this and just go and BUY IT!!!

Another very good YES album from my early years. An excellent album but I prefer the rawer energy and sound of YESSONGS. The quality is much better on this sleeker production than Yessongs, good value for money all the same.

This second Live album by Yes is an interesting affair. From what I've read some of the group were not particularly happy with the final mix and certain parts of it to come across as slightly compressed. However, there is much to enjoy here. Once again it proves that Yes were never a great in the studio, lousy onstage band as the songs come across with real flair despite the sometimes slightly disappointing production. This has got to be worth having for a live version of 'The gates of delirium' and an absolutely amazing version of 'Ritual' which really makes you wish you were at the concert, surely a requirement for a good live album! Earlier on there's beautiful version of 'Time and a word' (a song that showed its potential but was disappointing on the original album) but rather than keep it as part of the 'Big medley' from that tour it ends rather abruptly by going into a not particularly great version of 'Going for the one'. Other highlights include a great version of 'Don't kill the whale' and a beautiful version of 'Wondrous stories'.
It might sound strange but in some ways this is an improvement over 'Yessongs' and his some ways it isn't as, despite a general improvement in production here, 'Yessongs' has an energetic and rawer sound than we have here. Still it's good to have some stuff with Patrick Moraz on keyboards and he a certainly does a fantastic job filling in for Rick Wakeman on 'Ritual'

This is the last truly great album that Yes produced. There soon followed the Tale of the Two Trevors, 80's pop-rock and all that went with it. You may have your own opinions on that whole saga, but perhaps we'll save that one for another day. Yesshows demonstrates a fantastic band at the height of their prowess. The musicianship on display is awesome, so much so that it's easy to forget that these guys are actually playing this live! Ok, so the album itself isn't without its flaws. The poor segue between Time and a Word and GFTO has always been a bone of contention, as too was the splitting of Ritual into 2 parts on 2 different sides of the original vinyl version, and I gather also that Wonderous Stories was chosen quite late in the day rather than a better version of On The Silent Wings of Freedom; how true this is I can't say. But all that aside, there are some great tracks here. The stand-out in my opinion is the epic version of Gates of Delirium, which probably epitomises the skill and craftsmanship on display. Parallels thunders along at 100 mph, Time and a Word brings you back down to earth before the mayhem of GFTO. Ritual is a better version than that on TFTO and Don't Kill The Whale is a suprising choice but sounds great nonetheless. Another fringe benefit (which other reviews have already mentioned) is that you can compare and contrast between Rick Wakeman and Patrick Moraz, however both are excellent within their own spheres so you can't really split them apart.
If you're going to buy any Yes album, buy this one. SImple.
