Ask Yes & Rhino Records to Release Rare Yes Recordings

1,046 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Yes and Rhino Records (who would own the rights as part of WEA) release these recordings as they provide an important historical document of Yes' performances from that era.

    I attended Yes's February 1972 concert at the Academy of Music in in New York, and I will tell you, with no exaggeration, that this was a life-changing experience for me. I have long wanted a tape of this concert, and now that one has been found, I cannot imagine it not being released!

    The Bill Buford tracks are the best on Yessongs (no offense to Alan White). Now that Progeny is out it's time for Academy of Music, February 1972 and anything else from the end of the Fragile tour.
