Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall and Preston Frazier
After the sad news we shared last week about Phil Naro, Mark and I have decided to listen to parts of Yessongs this week and compare the performances with later live offerings. It’s what we’ve done before in our Yes Tracks Through Time series.
Most Yes fans agree that Yessongs captures the band at its best and it often comes top in the best live albums lists and polls but what about other versions of these classic songs?
- Is Yessongs really the only live record worth listening to?
- What radically different performances exist?
- Are they just as enjoyable?
