As fractured as the YES experience has been over the last decades, there’s still enough strong original talent in the official YES to make a genuine YES album. For many, the Howe-led team with Alan White, and newer members (Original bassist, Chris Squire passed in 2015) is a great experience despite the availability of Rick Wakeman and original lead singer and architect, Jon Anderson. Differences aside, YES is a top draw live.
On July 19, Rhino will help YES celebrate a well-documented 50th Anniversary with the release of 50 Live. The live selections for this new set will be drawn from the US leg of their 50th Anniversary tour, with most of the performance tracks selected from their two-day stint at The Fillmore in Philadelphia on July 20 and 21 in 2018.
YES 50 Live will provide 13 2019 performance songs from across the band’s extensive catalog. 50 Live will be released as a 2CD set, DD, and a 4LP set.
