Product Description

Product Description

2014 two CD collection from the Prog Rock icons. Yes are one of Progressive Rock's greatest and most enduring bands. This 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 Khatru' and 'Close To The Edge' featured in their entirety.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Experience Needed June 5 2014
By Grateful Jerry - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is the reissue of the 2011 release with new artwork now approved by Roger Dean and a better booklet. The album collects quite a few highlights from 9 of the 11 studio albums released between 1969 to 1983. Both the first album and Tormato are bypassed. Too bad we didn't get at least a live song or two. All of the Close To The Edge album appears over the two discs. I probably would've picked Survival and Time And A Word over No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed and Everydays. It's a bit of a shame that there wasn't room for To Be Over as well. On the plus side, the inclusion of the often overlooked The Remembering is a nice plus.

I really like the way this set is laid out song wise and it has a nice flow. It kind of reminds me of an expanded version of the Classic Yes album. I've become bored with best of/collection albums always being organized by chronology over the last 15 years for various bands and artists. I'd much prefer a collection album have it's own flow and an identity of it's own. It makes me think that someone actually put some thought into it. This album doesn't shy away from some of the longer songs and gives a pretty good overview of the band's output during this time frame. This is a great inexpensive collection for fans as well as a great introduction for people new to the band.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Yes Compilations out there. June 11 2014
By Hector Montemayor Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a solid Yes hits package & at a really great price. I believe the tracks selected for this collection make it superior to other Yes 2 CDs sets such as YesStory from 1992 and the 35th Anniversary set from 2004. The running order of the songs is great and flows perfectly! Including No Opportunity Necessary is a nice touch as this is a great early jem from Time And A Word. Parallels is also a great track & including The Remembering from TFTO is just flat out awesome!! All of Close To The Edge is represented here as well, which is probably their best album. Lastly, we get Tempus Fugit from Drama which is another nice little change up. Just a very well put together compilation that provides a great representation of this group's best work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Best Of YES Aug. 13 2014
By T Cleveland - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is one of the better Best of YES CD's out there, Please know that it does not seem to have any re-mastered versions, I am not sure where the master source came from. It is a very good collection of late 60's and 70's YES, with the exception of Owner of a Lonely Heart and Leave It which is really great, the acapella mix was a good choice. The Remembering was a good choice from Tales, I Love that song. I bought it to have in my car for road trips, just the right amount of really excellent YES. I do wish a few songs could have made it on the CD's, To be Over and Future Times. Starship Trooper could have been left off for these songs. If you are just getting into YES or are a long time fan, this is a very good selection otherwise. The Roger Dean cover is most excellent, I would love to have that lithograph. Buy this for a really good Best Of and at a good price. Do not expect the sound quality to be re-masters, But with YES at this price point and in the car it works just fine. Enjoy.
