I haven't kept up with the Yes releases the past few years. A studio album, expanded versions of Songs from Tsonga. The live album tours. Also, there are some Blu-Ray album releases of The Yes Album, Close to the Edge, and Relayer

I hope I can get back to add some details of these releases. One quick comment, from the above, for those with good audio equipment or those who want all of run throughs and rarities from these classic albums, they are worth while. The Yes Album seems to offer the most supplemental material.

What prompted an updated to my Yes page update is the live release of the fall 1972 tour - Progeny.

The Yesworld.com website has all of the specifics, which is basically the liner notes that's included with the box set.

The material is most of the classic Yessongs, but that release also had some songs from the Fragile tour. The problem with Yessongs, is the cd does not sound good.

Progeny does sound much better than Yessongs. However, I was hoping for even more fidelity. I played two of the sets and the separation of the instruments is very nice. You can really hear Steve Howe's amazing chops. He's really at his peak here, and that is why you want this release, even if you have the songs in ten other releases. Rick Wakeman is very well represented in the mix and the instrumental hand offs between Wakeman and Howe and joyful. To me, it seems Chris Squire is a bit low during much of the mix.

Yes: Live at Montreux 2003
In 2003 the band made their first appearance at the Montreux Festival, despite having a long association with the town itself (they recorded there frequently in the seventies). It was a triumphant night and is regarded by both the band members and fans as probably the finest Yes gig ever to be filmed. It has been much in demand and is now finally cleared for release. 

Personnel - Jon Anderson, Steve Howe, Chris Squire, Rick Wakeman and Alan White
