The only way to hear this album more clearly is to hear the actual master tapes in the Yes vault. Finally a CD mix of TALES that sounds the way it ought to. The four suites have a new life! Then there are the two bonus tracks - rough studio runthroughs of RSOG (called DANCE OF THE DAWN) and THE ANCIENT (called GIANTS UNDER THE SUN). Both bonus tracks are quite REVEALING of what Yes sound like getting an epic into shape. Lots of nice variations here, and again, like on the other studio run-through tracks( on CTTE and RELAYER), Jon's voice is more or less a guide vocal. He was saving his best singing for the final vocal tracks for whenever they finally perfected the music. And hearing a rough version of THE ANCIENT was a blast and a half! What an intense piece of music, even in its' early stages.
All Hail Rhino!
