Yes - Yessongs mp3 album

Yessongs is the first live album by the English rock band Yes, released as a triple album in May 1973 on Atlantic Records. After completing their Close to the Edge Tour in April 1973, the band selected live recordings between February and December 1972 on their tours supporting Fragile (1971) and Close to the Edge (1972) for a live album release.

Yes had already toured with Iron Butterfly right before the album’s release in January and were playing all of the UK then they traveled to Europe for this appearance. It's a bit rough in place, but the band is in full power and they really stretch on some numbers. The version of Paul Simon's "America" is different from the one they recorded a year later or so with Wakeman.

Yessongs is the first live album by Yes, released as a triple album in May 1973 on Atlantic Records. Yessongs begins with Opening (Excerpt from ‘Firebird Suite’), a piece of the closing section to the orchestral work The Firebird (1910) by Russian composer Igor Stravinsky. Yes have used the piece as the introductory music to most of their concerts since 1971, the year of the composer’s death. The track segues into Siberian Khatru from Close to the Edge. The album featured new drummer Alan White, but two tracks (Perpetual Change, Long Distance Runaround, The Fish) had been previously recorded.

Yessongs is the first live album by the English rock band Yes, released in May 1973 on Atlantic Records. The album is a compilation of recordings taken from their Fragile (1971) and Close to the Edge (1972) tours between February and December 1972, from various locations in North America and the Rainbow Theatre in London. Two tracks feature Bill Bruford on drums; the remaining songs feature his replacement, Alan White. Yessongs received a mostly positive critical reception, though much of its criticism was directed at its sound quality.

Yessongs is a music live recording by YES (Symphonic Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1973 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Yessongs Imports 2010.
