    What about “The Medley” from the word is live.

    This combination of songs has got to be one of the greatest listens in a Yes concert.

    Although its obviously more than one song, I think because you are only listening to bits and pieces from each song with really cool transitions from one to the other until that final sublime shift from Perpetual Change to Soon, it counts as a legitimate entry here.

      Side 6 of Yessongs is the ultimate live Yes for me, YIND with that unique and fun intro followed by my all-time favorite Yessong Starship Trooper.

          Oof, yeah that medley is amazing. I wish the Richfield’78 show would get a proper release one day. As many great 78-79 as there are, that one just floors me. Amazing version of the medley, and everything else too.

            I'll have to think about this one, but I know my wife's is Onward from Keys To Ascension.

              I guess you are referring to the Live from WMMS version. Listening to it now. I had always navigated to the 1979 NA Tour : And the Circus from Heaven from Quebec as my go to version, followed by Wembley.

              For some reason Richfield had passed me by, possibly because it is a bit boomy right to begin with , but its excellent, really excellent. Added to my list of go to Boots.

              So I guess these three are the three best ones for the Tormato Tour.

                Can’t go wrong with those! I like that “Seventh Age Imagination” boot a lot as well. Really nice audience recording. Vancouver 1979. Vancouver 1976 is pretty rad as well. Maybe the same taper?

                  Never been a fan of medleys and that also goes for this one. I recognise they have made the most of it and they played it great, but I much, much prefer whole songs as I feel certainly in the case of Yes and their longer compositions a medley doesn't do the songs justice.

                    "South Side of the Sky" from In the Present: Live From Lyon is one of the few live songs that have suplanted the studio versions of songs I have on playlists where I Iimit things to one version of each song I select.

                    That doesn't quite make it my favorite official live Yes song, because there are probably some that I think are great for different reasons than the originals but are not substitutes for them and can't take their place in a playlist, but it does mean I was very impressed.
                    "A lot of the heavier conversations I was having with Chris toward the end were about his desire for this thing to go forward. He kept reiterating that to me. [...] He kept telling me, 'No matter what happens, Yes needs to continue moving forward and make great music. So promise me that that's something you want to do.'. And I have to keep making music. It's just what I do. [...] I'm a fan of the band and I want to see it thrive and that means new music." -Billy Sherwood

                        I have always liked the Starship Trooper live version on Keys to Ascension- fantastic energy by the band.

                          GFTO or Gates from Yesshows, Siberian Khatru from Yessongs. Favorite Starship Trooper?

                            YIND and Perpetual Change from Yessongs. Bruford’s drum solo on Perpetual Change is the best drum solo I have ever heard, and I actually found it to be memorable.

                              That really is a gem. Need to pull that cd tonight and give it a spin.

                                My official fave is ST from Yessongs.
                                I do have an unofficial fave, though—as many others do.

                                Memorare, O piissima Virgo Maria, non esse auditum a saeculo, quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia, tua implorantem auxilia, tua petentem suffragia, esse derelictum. Ego tali animatus confidentia, ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro, ad te venio, coram te gemens peccator assisto. Noli, Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere; sed audi propitia et exaudi. Amen.
