    I always see the Keys albums as separate as they were released originally apart. I have always felt that whilst they're good- KTA 2 especially, I think Yes have done better, they're enjoyable every so often. Regarding a Double LP version of Keystudio, yeah why not- its the last album with the classic lineup, it seems like something fans would enjoy, though i'm not an LP guy myself, more a CD fan.

      This is an Important Topic to me, I'm into vinyl and have the rest, so this is one of the biggest, most glaring holes in my collection. I even finally have Talk and Magnification, Union minus one song ... let's go people release this thing, we're not getting any younger.

      I think Keystudio would make a fine double LP but I have so many thoughts about ways this can be presented as it relates to a potential vinyl release, and I wonder if the band does, too.

      First, the Keystudio title and album art aren't favorable to the original releases IMO (and my opinion is right lol). I wonder if they'd use the Dean art for a vinyl edition, but then which piece?

      Secondly, I remember hearing about how the Keys 2 sessions were really separate sessions from Keys 1. I guess some folks really hear a difference in the recording approach between the two sets of sessions, although I don't really hear it myself. To my ears I find the material and its recordings to be so similar that I've come to accept it as one studio album. But that lends legitimacy to the idea that they might release separate multi-LP sets, the way they originally came.

      Third, what of the live material? Keys 1 disc 1 is probably my favorite live Yes thing, seems a shame to not issue that on vinyl (all the other live stuff gets vinyl'd!) ...

      For me, I really like these pieces in particular, more than the blue covers that dominate the art schemes of original Keys 1 & 2:

        Same, here. I actually only have the Keystudio CD (rather than the separate Keys albums), and don't really consider the studio songs to be separate from each other. That's not something I really pay much attention to.

          I think Henry has pointed out that, despite what the (lazy/incorrect) credits to K2A2 say, that batch of songs was actually recorded after K2A had been released, so definitely different sessions. However, they sound more alike that almost any other Yes album with a consecutive lineup (all three of them), so they can flow together quite nicely…

          As for a vinyl issue, I'm sure it would sell in the dozens… The best hope might be some combination of print on demand/3D printing, where any sound file could be transformed into a slab of plastic and shipped to your home for the low low price of $49.99…

            Maybe the Keystudio mastering is different, but the studio tracks on the original releases of KTA 1 and KTA 2 CDs sound very different to me. KTA 1 sounds midrangey, little to no soundstage (the instruments just lay there all together), an overall blurry feeling, as if my headphones were full of cotton batten. KTA 2 sounds crisp & clear with lots of frequency range, good separation & soundstage, it feels like you are in the room. Just like the difference between original LP releases of TFTO (bad) & Fragile (excellent).
