2 stars This film is a great historical document of a great show, by a great band, at a high point in their career. But I must point out already at this point that this video cannot be compared with the live masterpiece that is Yessongs the double album. The album is very much better than the video. This video does not offer the full show and it is much shorter than the album.

The Wakeman solo is interesting though as it is different from the one on the album.

I got this video very early on in my Yes life and I used to love it. Yes is still my favourite band of all time and I now have pretty much everything they ever released on CD and DVD. And the Yessongs video is certainly not the best. However, it is certainly not the worst either and as a purely historical document it is very good. But there are now much better Yes DVD's out there. Just to mention some excellent ones - House Of Yes - Live At The House Of Blues and Symphonic Live.

Yessongs the album I revisit sometimes, but Yessongs the video gets played very rarely now that I have so many other and better Yes products.

Only for fans, but for them it can be very enjoyable indeed! But make sure you get the Yessongs double album as it gives you a lot more value for your money.
