This is not a putdown, but you have to appreciate the entire history of Yes to really dig this collection. If this describes you, you're in for a big surprise! It starts with the early days before Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman came into the picture. All the members of Yes (even Billy Sherwood is represented here, although he would join at least 5 years after this boxset was released) display talent. Disc 4 features the Yes of the 1980's with Trevor Rabin. Highlights include Starship Trooper, Close to the Edge, Owner of a Lonely Heart, Soon, Roundabout, Wonderous Stories and "rarities" like Something's Coming, Make It Easy, And You and I (live), Money, and the closing track Love Conquers All. The accompanying book is in-depth and generous with photos, discography, personell changes and Roger Dean's unique artwork. If you enjoy Yes as much as I do, you'll be sure to get your money's worth! P. S. I can't believe nobody else reviewed this up until now!
