    How many YES live albums do you own (not counting solo works)

    Just curious, I was never one for collecting live material generally speaking, but I actually do have a fair amount of Yes live albums (not too surprising really).

    I'd puchased every offficial live Yes release (plus ABWH and ARW) - up until Yes 50 Live. So I didn't purchase that one or The Royal Affair. I guess the last one I purchased was Topographic Drama.

          I think that's all of the official live releases, but I have about 40-45 unofficial live albums on CD as well. I can't be bothered to count them all right now.

          Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
          Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

            Probably easier to say which ones I DON'T own - the live Montreux one, Yessymphonic on CD but I have the DVD, maybe one other I forgot about. I pretty much have them all. Favorite ones are any and all the pre-Keys ones, House Of Yes, Progeny, The Word Is Live and Topographic Drama. The rest are cool to own too.

              I've owned all of them at one point, but have traded in/deleted most of them now.

                Between 30 and 40 or more, depending on how you want to count them...

                      I've got 13 official ones... and tons of bootlegs.

                      Plus I burned a CDR of the 9012Live DVD many years ago.


                      Will likely get BBC, Tsongas and Symphonic eventually , and maybe Montreux.


                      With the bootlegs... oh man... it's crazy. So many.

                        I’m surprised by how many I do have - about a dozen. That seems excessive or even obsessive to me. I thought I had a life…

                          None of us have one of those...not really.

                              All 3 of the Magnification bonus discs feature one epic track recorded on the Masterworks tour in 2000 plus an orchestral Long Distance Runaround. Collect 'em all and burn a Masterworks CD-r:

                              Masterworks Live:

                              1) Close To The Edge
                              2) Gates Of Delirium
                              3) Ritual
                              4) Long Distance Runaround - 2001 bonus track

                              I had totally forgotten about those. Igor's 'boards are kinda low in the mix though, especially on Gates.

                              Also, I wonder who else remembers this one:
                              Around that same time, there was an online 'build your own' live album - you assembled a one-disc live album from a list of recent live tracks recorded the previous year on the Ladder tour. Then they mailed you the disc of the tracks you selected, the cd cover was the Ladder-era 'box' logo on an aqua-colored background which said 'masterworks' I think. I selected mostly Ladder tracks plus Yours Is No Disgrace to open it, Perpetual Change, and Cinema/Owner(which I think was one track). However, later all that stuff was released as House Of Yes by the end of the year, making the 'make-you-own-House Of Yes' disc kinda silly.

                              Does anyone remember that?
