Format: Audio CD
Their first album, simply entitled Yes, was released in that crucial year of the Moon and Woodstock: 1969. Rock was in ferment, a period of awesome creativity, experimentation and heightened expressiveness. Although it was a crowded field, there were a few artists who stood out as historically important from the first. 1969 lofted Led Zeppelin, Crosby Stills and Nash, Rod Stewart, the Allman Brothers Band, Black Sabbath, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Hall and Oates as well as Yes, just to name a few. With the release of Yes, the band revealed itself as masters of complex, polyphonic Rock that featured brilliant instrumental work and stunning vocals. Yes were the first of the as yet unnamed "Progressive Rock" groups (Genesis and Emerson, Lake and Palmer weren't formed until the following year). With their first album a new genre and several sub-genres were created. The importance of the band cannot be overstated.

Listening to all 13 albums released by Yes between 1969 and 1987 I am struck by how their career exhibited a striking arc initiated by their absolute peak of perfection between 1969 and 1972 and their first 5 albums. This was followed by a progressive decline in creativity that began in 1973 with their sixth album Tales of Topographic Oceans and the onset of a series of personnel changes that had a deep impact on the band. There was a secondary peak in the 1980s that featured a pop oriented sound which was phenomenally successful: their 1983 album 90125 was triple platinum in the U.S. Although I am a huge fan of early Yes, I can appreciate their later work, at least in parts.

High Vibration is a limited edition 16 SACD box set, featuring the 13 albums released by Yes between 1969 and 1987 and including the live album "Yessongs" as well as a bonus disc.

Format: Audio CD
Being one like most collectors of Yes, I have gone through countless versions of the same album(s) for years (5 different sets owned of at least the first 10 album releases.) Going from vinyl to CD (various remasters since the CDs first came about, gold CDs, DVD Audio 5.1, SHM CD's from Japan, Warner Bros Japan Fragile 5.1 SACD, Audio Fidelity SACD hybrids and finally this box set). The AF releases CTTE and GFTO are definitely lacking in comparison to the counterparts in this set, often less "airy" and slightly harsher, to these ears. Remastering from 2013, this is the pinnacle of the Yes catalog sets with the first 8 being my favorites, and without a doubt, rivaling even their best vinyl counterparts including the beloved MFSL LPs!!! Pricey for the quality?...Sort of, but when you consider this is a 16 piece set, (13 albums (15 discs) and a bonus disc) the cost is $29.26 per album and bonus disc or 25.25 per disc, considering 2 are TFTO and Yessongs double discs. Packaging is jewel case rather than mini-LP, and the box is well designed, unlike other collections that kind of just throw the discs into the package, ala the Pink Floyd Deluxe box sets. If you can afford it, get it, BUT PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THIS IS A HYBRID 2 CHANNEL SET, like all that have come before and after. Although the 5.1 versions are slowly coming out on Blu-ray 5.1 audio, neither the titles, nor release dates are set and I can't imagine Mr. Wilson taking time to do the whole Atlantic catalog, with everything else he does. So I would recommend picking up the Blu-rays as they come out, choosing your favorites, but picking up this set for the BEST SET in stereo available, if sound is important to you. Cheers...8)

This SACD/Hybrid box set is absolutely drop dead fantastic!!! Yup, it is a bit pricey as has been noted, however, if you're a YES fan like myself it's a must have! The sound of these CD's is above and beyond my expectations - my ears usually fatigue from too much digital (I'm a vinyl hound), but, these babies are nothing short of phenomenal; smooth tones from crystal clear highs to majestic lows - what more can you ask for?

Price ?
Go to CDJapan's web site, the HV box is considerably cheaper priced. I know its expensive but 16 hybrid sacds featuring 2013 remastering for about $400 US is pretty reasonable, especially if 5.1 mixes are included for every album but I'm not sure if they are. I wonder if these classic Yes albums... Read More
