Union Live is a live album from the tour promoting the studio album Union plus the seventies classics.
It was recorded at the California Shoreline Amphitheatre on the November 22nd, 1991.
5 members of Yes weren’t enough this time. Yes had splintered into a Chris Squire led group called Yes and the old members of Yes had formed a competing group called Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe. This was a genuine union based on re-uniting the two strands of Yes.
Jon Anderson: lead vocals / rhythm guitar / tambourine
Steve Howe: guitar / vocals
Trevor Rabin: guitar / vocals
Tony Kaye: keyboards / sound effects
Rick Wakeman: keyboards / synthesisers
Chris Squire: bass / vocals
Alan White: acoustic drums / percussion
Bill Bruford: electric drums / percussion

What Do You Think?
Is this one of the best live albums by Yes?
It is NOT included in the poll to find the best prog rock live album. Do you think it should be? More than 100 people have voted so far.
Because there are so many great progressive rock live albums I have split the poll into two and you may find some of your favourites in the second division. Albums will be promoted when they get enough votes.Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
You can get these albums from Amazon.com – Amazon.co.uk.
