YES `Yesspeak Yes Acoustic – 35th Anniversary Edition’ Classic
Pictures (2005) Classic Pictures

Here you get last year’s number one bestselling DVD `Yes Acoustic’ plus `Yesspeak’ the live show broadcast to 35 US cinemas last year. You just can’t fault the music on here from the epic strains of `Heart of the Sunrise’ through to `Long Distance Runaround’ that gets a new life in acoustic form. With the line-up of Anderson/Howe/Squire/White/Wakeman you have arguably the best Yes line-up. The photography is to be commended in this DVD as well – clear shots of the band and zoom ins on band member’s solo spots.

Bonus features include the trailers for the DVD from last year plus a backstage view of the rehearsals, narrated in style by Rick Wakeman. Wakeman’s commentary had me laughing out loud in parts – if he never made it as a musician he would surely have made top draw comedian.

If you’re a Yes fan go get this now!

    Replace “White” with “Bruford” and I’d agree.

    Everybody knows the best Yes lineup was the one with Trevor Horn and Geoff Downes :)

    Hey, Drama‘s a pretty decent album. I can see how some Yes fans were shocked at the time, but in retrospect it stands quite a bit higher than the rest of the mid-late 70s Yes, but also that same period’s prog output in general. (Which, admittedly, isn’t saying much – the genre was pretty dead-in-the-water by that point.)
