Great early music of Yes. It shows the listener how this unique band's music has progressed over the years.

A very good version of early Yes. Still one of the best recordings of 1969.

The original line up with Peter Banks on guitar crafted a sound that is like no other, even other albums by Yes.

||Cant get enough of YES!|
I really havent listened to the band as long as most YES fans, maybe four years tops, but let me tell you, there is not a day that goes by that I dont listen to at least one YES song.
