Prog-rock monsters Yes were firing on all cylinders in 1972. The prog pioneers' fifth studio album 'Close To The Edge' was a smash success as audiences around the world packed arenas to see the legendary group perform. The band captured the magic of that tour on its first live album, 'Yessongs.' Released in 1973, the triple-LP sold over a million copies and blew minds with Roger Dean's iconic artwork.

The band recently discovered recordings of seven complete concerts from the weeks leading up to the shows heard on 'Yessongs.' The latest audio technology was used to restore the reel-to-reel recordings and bring out incredible sonic detail, creating an open, immediate sound that drops listeners right into the front row.

'Yes: Highlights From Seventy-Two' includes 90 minutes of live recordings selected from various shows. The music flows like a typical setlist from the tour as it spotlights standout performances from different cities.

This was Yes' first tour with drummer Alan White, who's been with the band ever since. He replaced Bill Bruford, who recorded 'Close To The Edge' before leaving to join King Crimson. White only had three days to learn the band's live show before his first night on stage with Jon Anderson (vocals), Steve Howe (guitar), Chris Squire (bass) and Rick Wakeman (keyboards).
 
Recorded three months into the tour, these powerful performances attest to how quickly the new line-up came together musically as they navigate hits like "Roundabout," and complex pieces like "And You and I." Even though the setlist didn't vary much from night to night, the individual performances are strikingly different.
