The other frustration is that all the YES bonus tracks are listed ONLY on the discs themselves. The sleeves, since they represent the original albums, lack the bonus information. None of the albums have individual booklets.
One Word about this set: FRAGILE. (I plan to return mine).
Much cheaper than buying these separately. The discs are housed in a clam shell style box with beautiful Roger Dean artwork. They each come in a mini-LP style sleeve that faithfully reproduces the original vinyl covers. If the vinyl had a gatefold cover, the minis will have one too, even the triple panel GOING FOR THE ONE gets reproduced here. All of the discs have the original label art printed on them and it all looks very attractive. As far as the remastering goes, I honestly can't tell that much difference from the previous remastering they got. They sound very good. The bonus tracks are a mixed bag, many are not terribly interesting but there are some gems, including some great stuff from the TORMATO sessions. Sound quality on the bonus tracks varies from lousy to excellent.
The set also includes a small poster of the Roger Dean cover art. All in all, this is exactly the box set that I have been waiting for.
Beautifully presented with all the bonus tracks at an affordable price. If you combine this set with the previously released 5 disc set called ESSENTIALLY YES you will have the entire YES studio catalog (with the exception of UNION and FLY FROM HERE) in the nifty mini-LP format. If you've already bought the Rhino remasters in their single versions then you can safely skip this one. I really love it and it was the perfect thing for me.
