Ask Yes & Rhino Records to Release Rare Yes Recordings

1,042 Signatures Goal: 5,000

In 1998 a company that provided flight cases for Yes' tours in the early 1970s discovered reels of live Yes recordings in cases that were in storage since that era. These included performances recorded throughout 1972, including some of which ended up in YESSONGS. In all over a dozen reels were found, and included some of the last performances with Bill Bruford on drums before he left the group to join King Crimson. This petition is to request that Yes and Rhino Records (who would own the rights as part of WEA) release these recordings as they provide an important historical document of Yes' performances from that era.

    Hello,

    it would be a great event to listen to the music in a fine packaged, commerced Box Set.

    The name Bill Bruford glooms on over the world of music, of contemporary progressive music, of modern Jazz and Yes and especially that time, when he moved over is of an enormous significance.

    It was, as Chis Welch noticed, like Steve Winwood leaving the Spencer Davis Group, a massive break. (I'm born '67, I'm grown in the eighties!! but when you found a better music in past ages you live and feel with those past movements and its weights).

    See: The most meaningful names to me, leaving existence in the last years, are two and they are from that musical generation: BO HANSSON, the swede and EDGAR FROESE, the german fellow.

    I always wanted to know the live experience of 'Close To The Edge' with the original team performing.

    The more strange, the more quirk (maybe Bru plays, feeling bored or impatient, wanting to join Crimso or maybe he's in full flight), the better it could be!!!

    The best thing to do would be restauring and releasing that music.
