View Full Version : I have the boxset despite Tony Kaye

I guess Mr. Kaye was not very successful yet because my local store got the boxset in today and I just picked it up. They usually get stuff in the week before. I almost drove off the road looking at the booklet :). The pictures are great and the artwork is gorgeous. I would have loved more unreleased stuff but I know I will be enjoying all the remastered version of my favorites. I think Rhino did a great job with it although not having And You and I and Awaken were mistakes. I think it is much more impressive than the Yesyears set. Now, I hope they will release the live box that Alan White keeps talking about.

Can you comment on the audio quality of the cd's as compared to the latest remasters?


How much did it cost you, if you don't mind saying?

Thanks -

I haven't listened to all of it yet but the audio quality sounded great- prob a bit better than the remastered stuff, although I have not compared them yet. The price was $57.99 and i picked it up at Record Stop on Portion Road in ronkonkoma. Phone # is 585-3294.

I will say that the unreleased song Last Train from the Magnification sessions is should have stayed unreleased :).

Overall though, I am very impressed.

I, as well (Hi DaveG! Hi ed! Welcome to Yesfans, the world's longest cocktail party, have a drink. Have a seat. Enjoy, and be part-of the show!), would like to know if there is any difference between the box-set's sound quality and the original releases.

Not that i wont buy it regardless; I just want to know whether i should get excited or not...
