2002 55 TRKS 5CD boxed set  – 6 previously unreleased tracks!

The 2009 Japanese re-masters are really the way to go on the newer issues of ’79 – ’87 Yes titles.  Rhino US didn’t even bother to re-master “Big Generator”!  I found the boxed set recently as a “cut-out” – great sound, some otherwise unavailable tracks.  The Trevor Horn era of Yes is really quite entertaining – something any self-respecting Buggles fan should check out and own.

Not quite sure how the post-’87 incarnations of Yes were determined, but I found all of it to be pretty much…let’s just say that I am not / was not the “target audience” for it.

    Jeepers. “Drama” gets 10 bonus tracks? I really like that album. Shame about the cover, though. Maybe I should invest in the RM? I don’t know about 90125 [but the cover’s better]. I never heard it, though I was amused by the two singles. How’s the rest of it?

    The clear tray Yes re-masters have pretty much all made it down to the $5.99 price-point by now. If you liked “Owner of a Lonely Heart” and “Leave It” – I’d go for an inexpensive CD (re) copy of “90125” – No Steve Howe in sight! No Rick Wakeman in sight! No Patrick Moraz in sight!

  3. postpunkmonk says:

    But I like Steve Howe! [passes on Wakeman and especially Moraz]

  4. ronkanefiles says:

    “90125” has the magic words: “Produced by Trevor Horn” – band is Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, Trevor Rabin, Alan White and Tony Kaye. Sleeve is “Assorted Images”.

  5. Brian Ware says:

    Hey Jim, I agree with Ron, I think both “90125” and “Big Generator” are pretty terrific. Great production, great melodies, and they stayed totally focused as to what they wanted to achieve on those two.
