Yessongs songs Product Information
Yessongs album for sale by Yes was released Sep 27, 1994 on the Atlantic (Label) label. Especially compelling is "And You and I" from CLOSE TO THE EDGE, and a smoking rendition of "Roundabout", which one imagines the band wasn't totally sick of playing yet. YESSONGS serves as a compelling showcase for the guitar heroics of Steve Howe, from his intimate solo-acoustic "Mood for a Day" to his scintillating solo on "Yours is No Disgrace," which seems to float in the air and uncoil like a snake. Yessongs CD music is a 2-disc set with 18 songs. ...See Full Description

||This is the best|
Listening now on headphones. It was my intro to yes and I saw them in the round in 77. This is the album to own Fantastic if you like great music.
By montbob (Hooray for Luray)
||One of the greatest!!!|
Arguably the finest live album to emerge from the "prog rock" groups of the Seventies. What you hear on this album is a legendary band, firing on all cylinders.
By Jim (St. Louis MO USA)
||The real ultimate Yes|
Fantastic live album from the ultimate prog rock group. Not a moment wasted. Every second of this 2 CD set is packed with excitement.
By Otto (Los Angeles, CA, USA)
||Good live album|
I have enjoyed this disc, but since it was my first YES CD, I wish I had bought one or two studio albums instead - the clarity of the recording is not the greatest, but the musicianship is very good - if you want Live songs, it is great.
By a reviewer (Colchester, CT USA)
If you were allowed to only own 1 Yes album this would be it. Had the vinyl now the CD. Saw Howe with Asia and you can't appreciate his work enogh.

|Close to the Edge CD (1972) Top Seller
Yessongs album for sale One of the high-water marks of progressive rock (and thus of 1970s rock in general), CLOSE TO THE EDGE found British prog godfathers Yes firing on all cylinders. Throughout their history, they've undergone numerous lineup changes, but this album featured the "classic" formation responsible for their absolute finest achievements. Here Rick Wakeman is at his Moog-goes-Baroque best behind the keyboards, Steve Howe sounds like a blues guitarist from Mars, Chris Squire delivers confoundingly contrapuntal bass lines, and Bill Bruford seemingly solves complex mathematical equations from his drum stool. The lion's share of the album is occupied by the title track, a complex piece that moves through numerous modes and moods. In latter decades, the extended song-suite has been denigrated as indicative of the worst rock pretensions, but, on CLOSE TO THE EDGE, it was a fascinating new concept, and Yes made it work more convincingly than anyone else before or since.
2003 remastered, reissue of 1972 album with redesigned booklet (digipak/slipcase), restored LP art, archival photos and new liner notes. Includes 4 bonus tracks 'America' (single version), 'Total Mass Retain' (single version), 'And You And I' (alternate version) & 'Siberia' (studio run-through of 'Siberian Khatru'). Elektra.

|Tales from Topographic Oceans CDs (1974) Top Seller
Yessongs songs Four decades after its release, this is still the most controversial record in Yes' output. Tales from Topographic Oceans was the place where Yes either fulfilled all of the promise shown on their previous five albums or slid off the rails in a fit of artistic hubris, especially on the part of lead singer Jon Anderson and guitarist Steve Howe, who dominated the composition credits here. Actually, the group probably did a bit of both here across 80 minutes of music on a fully packed double-LP set; the group's musical ambitions were obvious on its face, as it consisted of four long songs (really suites) each taking up a side of an album, and each longer than the previous album's side-long "Close to the Edge." And Tales had a jumping-off point that was as far advanced in complexity and density as Close to the Edge had been out in front of its predecessor, Fragile, -- and all of it made The Yes Album seem like basic rock & roll. Anderson, by virtue of his voice and lyrics, is the dominant personality on Tales, and his fascination with Eastern religion is fully manifest, as never before (or since). Confronted by song titles such as "The Revealing Science of God," and a concept derived from the Buddhist Shastric scriptures, the casual listener might have felt in need of both a running start and a sheet of footnotes: Yes keyboard player Rick Wakeman clearly felt something along those lines, as it was while making this record that he decided to exit the group. And, yet, Tales contains some of the most sublimely beautiful musical passages ever to come from the group, and develops a major chunk of that music in depth and degrees in ways that one can only marvel at, though there's a big leap from marvel to enjoy. If one can grab onto it, Tales is a long, sometimes glorious musical ride across landscapes strange and wonderful, thick with enticing musical textures; it offers the Yes fan the chance to be a true "astral traveler." Apart from one percussion break by Alan White that doesn't come off (if there had to be a Yes album with a percussion solo, why couldn't it have come along when Bill Bruford was in the band?), the music never falls flat, and it's a pity that Wakeman couldn't appreciate the richness and vitality he brought to the album. And Anderson and Howe get to work in an extraordinarily wide range of musical voices. In another reality, perhaps the gorgeous, folk-like passages on Tales would have spawned songs of four or five minutes, but here they are, woven into these long-form pieces, and if one can take the plunge into these particular sonic oceans, and comfortably stay under long enough, it's a journey that will reward. But it's not a trip for everyone -- or even every Yes fan -- to take, especially not too soon after discovering the album. ~ Bruce Eder

|Relayer CD (1974)
Yessongs CD music Recorded in 1974. Originally released on Atlantic (18122). Includes liner notes by Doug Gottlieb, Glenn Gottlieb.
Carnivorous, alcohol-loving Rick Wakeman was always at odds with the health-food mindset of the other Yes members, though his brash pomp was at the heart of their sound. When he was replaced by Patrick Moraz (late of '70s prog obscurites Refugee and Mainhorse), it freed the band up to dive headlong into the ethereal, spiritually oriented themes that had always been Jon Anderson's stock in trade. Thus, RELAYER consists of three extended cuts (the 22-minute "Gates of Delirium" was once jokingly assessed as the reason punk became necessary). Even on the inside cover's band photo, the Yes boys look like they're in the middle of a prayer meeting. The elaborately structured arrangements take the band's loftier side to previously unreachable heights (even compared to TALES FROM TOPOGRAPHIC OCEANS). However, it's all done so skillfully (with much credit going to Moraz) that RELAYER draws you in to its complex sonic web and fully captivates you.
2003 remastered, reissue of 1974 album with redesigned booklet (digipak/slipcase), restored LP art, archival photos and new liner notes. Includes 3 bonus tracks 'Soon' (single edit), 'Sound Chaser' (single edit) & 'The Gates Of Delirium' (studio run-through). Elektra.

|Yesshows CDs (1980)
Yessongs buy CD music The most important aspect of YESSHOWS is its display of the live interaction between the musicians. While Yes was never accused of being a "jam band," their elaborate, sophisticated arrangements require their own kind of musical telepathy between participants. That connection is apparent throughout the epic "Gates of Delirium" from RELAYER. The pleasure Squire, Anderson, Howe and company still get from playing together is especially apparent on their old chestnut "Time and a Word," a simple but very effective ballad.
Digitally remastered by Joe Gastwirt (Ocean View Digital).
(keyboards); Chris Squire (bass); Alan White (drums).
Recorded at Ahoy-Halle, Rotterdam, Netherlands on November 24, 1977; Empire Pool, Wembley, England on October 27, 1978; Festhalle, Frankfurt, Germany on November 18, 1977; Cobo Hall, Detroit, Michigan on August 17, 1976.
Recorded at various performances around the world between 1976 and 1978, YESSHOWS features the work of both longtime Yesman Rick Wakeman and his successor Patrick Moraz. Consequently, it's more an overview of the band's mid-period work than a document of a particular tour or performance. The lion's share of the tracks are drawn from GOING FOR THE ONE, arguably the best of Yes' late-'70s recordings, and "Wonderous (sic) Stories," "Parallels" and "Going For the One" all sparkle with the energy and invention that marked said album.
Yes: John Anderson (vocals); Steve Howe (guitar); Rick Wakeman, Patrick Moraz
