Out Now: Yes, YES 50 LIVE
Over the course of their 50+ years as a band, we aren’t sure if Yes has released as many albums as they’ve had members, and we’re certainly not going to take the time that’d be required to work out that word problem, mostly because we’re not entirely sure we’d have enough time left over to tell you about their new double live album...and we know you want to hear about that!
Recorded during the course of the band’s 50th anniversary tour throughout North America, Europe, and Japan, YES 50 LIVE was released this past Friday as a 2-CD set, a 4-LP set, and as a digital download. If you hurry over to Rhino.com, you might even be able to score a color vinyl version of the album, but no promises. (It’s limited edition, after all.)
With a cover by Roger Dean, YES 50 LIVE will certainly catch the attention of Yes fans, but so will the track listing, particularly the songs from the band’s how in Philadelphia, which featured 10 present and former members onstage for the encore. With a set list that winds its way through selections from 10 different albums released between 1970 and 2011.
Oh, but you’d like to know what the track listing is, wouldn’t you?
