    What would you want on Quintessential Yes the new box set from yes

    Well I know playing fantasy football is frowned upon here but I am genuinely curious with Anderson being the curator what sort of songs would you want on the new box set?

    My hope is that there are more unreleased stuff on it as that would be the only reason to buy such a thing (I own the 70’s albums and don’t need those songs for he billionth time lol) but with Anderson as curator it does put a bit of monkey wrench in the hopes that Go Through this will be released (it’s not that bad of a song and yes I know some hate it but god 6 minutes on a 4 hour long box set would not be the end of the world would it really plus the UK version of the peice sounds far more proggy almost sounds like a lost track from going for the one to be perfectly honest)

    Anyways to get the ball rolling I will post my track list for disk 1 (and wait on he other 6 as I am on the fence of what to include and what not to include)

    Disc 1 1968-1970

    1. Elenor Rigby: (every good box set should start with an unreleased track and this song is no exception I think Chris said he had a recording of this from the BBC but only had found it a few years ago anyways put that on the album)
    2. Survival live from 1969 (grab the audio from the video that is floating around)
    3. Beyond and before (studio version)
    4. Get Yourself together (with 2018 Jon singing over the 1968 version)
    5. Lost Banks/Anderson track from 2006 ( ok his doesn’t fit in the parameters above but hear me out in 2006 Jon wrote I think 3 songs with Peter Banks personally I would take the best of the 3 and have Billy Tony and Dylan Howe finish it up I mean sure I would want all 3 songs on the box set but I recognize that I am the only Yes fan who wants every unreleased song with multiple members released)
    6. Dear Father
    7. The prophet (cleaned up without the orchestra)
    8. Time and a word

    And that is disc one a fair balance of unreleased stuff and stuff we own a billion times so what do you want I will maybe post what I would want on all 6 discs of this box set that is coming out but my honest hope (as a preview) some of the following lost albums/ projects get one song on this box set

    1. The Anderson Banks project from 2006
    2. The lost Paris sesssions album of 1979
    3. Any jams the band did with Vangelies in 74
    4. At least one song from the Royal Family album with Roger Hodgson on lead vocals
    5. One song from The More We Live the lost album with Billy on lead vocals
    6. One ARW song (you heard me)
    7. Axis of Love (it was supposed to be on the following albums Union Keys 1 Keys 2 and I think the ladder and never got released so let’s put it here finally)
    8. Telephone Secrets (was supposed to be on Drama 90125 Keys 2 etc and yet still nothing)


    That is about the size of it but we shall see my fear is it will be a bunch of stuff we already own with one or two new tracks
    Chris Squire RIP 1948-2015 thank you for every album every song every moment... the world will truly never be the same again.
    Yes is Steve Howe Geoff Downes Jon Davison Billy Sherwood Alan White Jay Schellen and Tony Kaye and they have my support.

    "Box Set" to me means 3 to 4 CDs.

    If Jon is putting it together, I fully expect that Drama, FFH & H&E to be underrepresented.

    If Jon is putting it together, I would imagine zero songs from Drama, FFH & H&E. I'm assuming "Quintessential Yes" will mean (to JA and company) the Yes music with the original lead singer.

    Do you have even the slightest comprehension of the meaning of the word "quintessential"? If not, go look it up then come back & tell us again why 'Go Through This' should be represented on this new compilation.

    One could make a case for Drama, maybe, but no matter how hard I try I'm not able to see either FFH or H&E as being *Quintessential Yes* in any manner, shape or form.

    I'll ask Danny to drop you that dictionary when he's finished with it. Along with some reading spectacles and a jar of earbuds...

    I'd agree with Frum. Hopefully it will be just the same old warhorses, or "quintessential" tracks if you will.

    Then I won't feel obligated to buy it.

    I'm thinking something along the lines of the Studio Albums boxset. Oh, wait.......

    I'm sure that, of all the tracks you mentioned only Time And A Word will be there...

    Jon isn't totally Drama averse, he was open to doing some of it live latter day, but I wouldn't expect him to be open to FFH or H & E.

    So in essence this box set is going to be a waste of time sigh

    If Jon is curating, and given the use of 'quintessential" on recent ARW press, i predict one song from TYA, then a focus on Fragile, CTTE, GFTO, and the Rabin years, perhaps with something from TFTO, Tormato, ABWH, or Keys. Almost nothing that 2 of ARW are not on.

    They could always release these tracks on one of the regular additions to Jon's "Lost Tapes" (literal) box set.

    Bwahaha! I'm just kidding. I'll never get to remove those 12 or 13 styrofoam inserts.

    Try to don't waste much thoughts for this, will be some teaser for the still unwitting out there. Hope that I don't have to buy it for some hot rarity... like a fourth Relayer-Track Well, what would we do, to get a fourth Relayer-track... or a fifth from Tales

    A real fan-surprise for the anniversary would be nice as well this year... something that presents both Lost Yes Albums - 79 and 89/90 - and some other rarities through the decades.

    Sprinkle enough unicorn rainbow-do over those inserts and they magically become ultra-rare CDs. Zoooom...

    You took the words out of my fingertips. It’s not going be filled with obscure stuff to fulfill someone’s personal fantasy.
