Songs On Yes Progeny Seven Shows From Seventy-Two
If you know Yessongs, then basically you know what you’re going to get on here. You’re getting a terrific set list with all of the Close To The Edge album and most of Fragile and The Yes Album. With respect to Relayer, it’s hard to argue against the idea that this is the very best of Yes.
If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know that I have problems with repeats of virtually the same concert. I don’t hunt for the very best performance of particular songs. Instead I like the different feel of albums that come from different tours.
If you really want to see the tracks go to http://www.yesworld.com/2015/03/yes-progeny-live-from-seventy-two/ and open up the individual concerts.
