I've actually done this. Usually they're albums that were originally released back-to-back.
And it will usually be a 'clean' shuffle: Album A Track 1, Album B Track 1, etc.
I got a lot of mileage out of Union. One must remember that Union itself is its own Yes shuffle, merely adding three "YesWest" tracks and a Conspiracy track to 10 new ABWH tracks.
That said, I've got
ABWHUnion: Obviously, these albums have a lot in common, as Union is a mostly ABWH affair.
This one doesn't follow the 'clean' shuffle rule, as ABWH has 9 tracks and Union's got 14. Not only that, they both have some tracks that are 'linked', or at the least, have some serious 'flow' going on that encourages some tracks to be kept together.
So, the track list went one from ABWH, two from Union, one from ABWH, two from Union, another one from ABWH, another two from Union, then switching to alternating one from each with the following exceptions: I kept ABWH's Order of the Universe and Let's Pretend together, and kept the last three tracks (Holding On, Evensong and Take the Water to the Mountain) from Union together.
Also did a Big 90125: Again, an obvious connection.
Had to keep Cinema and Leave It together as they're linked. Added the three YesWest tracks from Union and the Big Generator Remix from The Ultimate Yes collection. And there's the four of the five 90125 bonus tracks - Make It Easy, It's Over, It Can Happen (Cinema Version) and Leave It (A Capella Version). (I find the extended version of 'Owner' a useless track.)
Also made a TalkUnion playlist by mixing in the three YesWest tracks from Union to Talk. Broke my own 'in order' rule on this one for a better flow, moving Talk's opening track The Calling to the middle of the list:
Lift Me Up (U)
I Am Waiting
Saving My Heart (U)
State Of Play
Miracle Of Life (U)
Where Will You Be
Endless Dream suite
Also made a Magnification + playlist: Magnification plus the new tracks from The Ultimate Yes collection.
I created an OYE + as well by adding the Banks, Moraz and Howe tracks from Tales From Yesterday.
I've got a Union Revised list, which merely adds Love Conquers All from YesYears in-between Masquerade and Without Hope.
I also made a Union/Turbulence shuffle, as many of the tracks from Union were pirated from Howe's solo album.
And, of course, I made a Yeggles shuffle, using Fly From Here, Drama and the single Run With The Fox. I opened with the entire FFH suite. I also used the long version of Hour Of Need instead of the regular version.
But reviewing my track list for this I find that I inexplicably dropped three of the Drama tracks - White Car, Run Through The Light and Into the Lens, which has an astounding Squire solo during the extended playout.
OK, that's fixed.
But on top of these duplex tandems, I've got a few triplex playlists, the most interesting of which is
901TorDram. One would think that these three chronological Yes albums with fairly different line-ups wouldn't tolerate a shuffle. I mean, Tormato, with the Classic Yes lineup, Drama, with the Yes/Buggles lineup, and 90125, with the YesWest lineup?
Surprisingly, these three have a lot in common. Obviously, the shuffle 'rule' was instantly compromised due to Drama having only 6 tracks to 90125's 9 tracks and Tormato's 8 tracks.
Yep, we're jumping from Wakeman's cheesy Tormato patches, to Geoff's modern pop sound, then off to Rabin and Kaye for 90125. There's also three vocalists; JA, TH, and TR - four if you count CS, who sings lead on Run Through the Light.
But Howe's playing on Drama is surprisingly compatible with Rabin's playing on 90125. If anything, there's quite a difference between the Tormato Howe and the Drama Howe. But all three albums still have White and Squire, while JA and SH are on two (and not the same two).
My second Triplex playlist is Close to the Topographic Relayer. These Shuffle up quite nicely - two albums with three tracks, and TFTO with four. So I started with TfTO, then started alternating between the remaining 9 tracks - sue me - it starts and ends with the first and last tracks from Tales. Works out nicely, but at around 160 minutes, it's pretty long.
And the last Triplex list is FlyMagLadder. Ladder and Fly have 11 tracks each, Magnification has 10 tracks, so they shuffle pretty well. They're the last three Yes studio albums. Stylistically, they also hang together surprisingly well.
