Recordings of the Early Years of YES.
First radio recordings and live performence at the BBC studio's.
Not the best recording as expected in those years but nice to hear them struggle-ing to make it.
Specially you can hear that they tried to be a close-harmony singing band.
Not allways with succes.
But I don't care.
