This incredible project was done using live recordings from radio broadcasts and concert tours played by Yes in 1970-1988, with a Geddy Lee surprise in the booklet.

The tracklist is phenomenal, as you can read.

Is there a number of recordings from Rush to do a canadian version of this triple CD?

Are you going to buy a thing like this?

I have heard this. From a tracklisting perspective there's a little bit of something for everyone..... however the sound quality is not great.

I would rate it as 'for hardcore fans only'

Disc 3 has long been my go to from this set. I've been known to hit the repeat button on Shoot High, Aim Low for longer than is probably healthy! It's a wonderful experience. But the whole set is pretty decent and the liner notes are nice.
