Well, it came out yesterday, and suprisingly no comments yet on this DVD.
Any opinions anyone?

I first need some money.
Damn, it seems I have to work during the summer. That's no fun, but I'm totally broke.

Picked it up in Music Zone 2 days ago for £11.97, (£4 less than HMV), but, thanks to work, haven't had the chance to play it yet.
Will give it a spin tonight, (thank god for Fridays!).

I finally had the chance to play this over the weekend, and I've got to say that it's one of the most enjoyable experiences of Yes on DVD thus far, (second only to Symphonic IMHO).
OK, the set is pretty short at a little over half an hour, but there is much to appreciate. Sound and picture on the main set is excellent, although the 'bonus material' rehersal footage looks like it was filmed on a second hand home movie camera! Rick's narration however during this section is hilarious, (as was Roger Daltrey's on Yesspeak, but this time it's intentional!).
In fact for me, Rick is the star of this DVD. His grand piano playing throughout is glorious, and adds new depth to songs such as 'South Side Of The Sky'.
Purchase without reservation!

Pricey

Ain't it a bit pricey at 12 sheets for what is essentially an EP?

Sorry but I can't get over the feeling that this is a bit of a rip-off. I don't know who is behind the package/pricing of this item but it's the sort of thing that leaves a bad taste in the mouth. In a few months time this will be on the shelves at a fiver.

I can wait.

I'd comment on that, but I don't understand British currency. Pounds, shillings, pence. Did I get that right? Anyways, I can't wait till it comes out here in America.

It is pricey indeed. I'll wait til the price drops before I'll get it. It's around
26 Euro.
As I recall, Symphonic wasn't even that expensive.

Bloody hell! I thought we were being ripped off! That's about £16 isn't it? (And to think I'm looking forward to the UK joining the Euro if it ever happens!) At current exchange rates that'd be over $30 wouldn't it?

I don't know the value of the Pound/Dollar, but don't look forward to it, Chris. It takes years to get used to, and where they can, they take advantage of it

Latest news here is that they will try to make new CDs 10 and DVDs 20.
That means the CDs are around the same price as LPs were at the end of the 80s (I think), fair enough, but 20 Euro for what is basically really an EP on DVD is still too much. It should be around 11/12.

In "News That Should Surprise No One"...

Why am I not surprised that the Yes Acoustic DVD has been delayed here in the US until October 5th? Is there something wrong with Yes' management that they cannot guarantee a firm delivery date, or is it Classic Pictures' fault? Other artists can release material on a given date, so why is it always an ordeal for Yes to release something on time in the US? And does this mean that we can look forward to a January 2005 release of the "Songs from Tsongas" DVD simply because the Yesworld website is told that it will be coming out in December of 2004?

They all sound great to me, especially New World Symphony, which I don't have to assume is Squire jamming on it :icon_appr

Another pretty one was Steve's Austrailia, surprisingly, and thank God it's an instrumental, cuz the one he did on Beginnings.....Well, lets' just say, the singing killed the song! :icon_ded

Southside was cool, but a little too short for my liking..Either way, it was very nicely re-done acoustically.
