    The needle drops in Hi-Res interest me, I've got quite a few of those in the library now.:D

    Nice to see Stephen Wilson is still remixing great old classic albums, I wondered what he was up to lately.:grinthumb

    I don't know...but it's a great album and nice to see it's getting some remastered re issue treatment....the attention end of it at least.

    ^^Well if it was just another 'remaster' then I wouldn't care at all MP, but when I see Stephen Wilson's name that always pique's my interest because he "remixes" the album on a proper multi-track analog board and then makes a better digital version. Night and day difference to the endless "let's lob out another remastered set and see who buys yet another Beatles collection"...:bonk:

    The 2003 remaster has the single versions of America and Total Mass Retain (a sequence from the title track), along with an alternate version of And You and I and a studio run-through of Siberian Khatru, called Siberia. I'm not sure I need a DVD, blu ray and 5.1 because I don't have the hardware, but I'd be interested to see Roger Dean's new artwork.

    Yes Announce Massive New Box Set

    [​IMG]

    Yes released a bunch of important albums during their time with Atlantic Records. Next month, each and every one of them will be collected in a brand new 13-CD box.

    Due Dec. 24, the sensibly titled ‘The Studio Albums 1969-87′ rounds up remastered and expanded versions of the 12 albums the band released over that span, starting with 1969′s ‘Yes’ and concluding with 1987′s ‘Big Generator.’ Rhino Records, the label behind the ‘Studio Albums’ box, gave the band’s catalog the reissue treatment in 2003-04, and the vast majority of this set’s contents debuted during that series; the lone exception is the remastered and expanded ‘Big Generator,’ previously available only as a Japanese import.

    If the bulk of the music is nothing new to import-shy Yes enthusiasts, the package will still offer something new: artwork from Roger Dean, the artist who created the covers for many of the band’s most popular albums (and whose work has become largely synonymous with prog-rock records in general).

    Housed in a clamshell package, the box also includes a fold-out poster of Dean’s latest creation. It seems rather likely that most Yes fans already have these albums — and these versions of these albums — but if you’re looking to jump-start your Yes collection in one fell swoop, then ‘The Studio Albums 1969-87′ is obviously the way to go.

    Yes: The Studio Albums 1969-87

    Album Listing
    ‘Yes’ (1969)
    ‘Time and a Word’ (1970)
    ‘The Yes Album’ (1971)
    ‘Fragile’ (1971)
    ‘Close to the Edge’ (1972)
    ‘Tales from Topographic Oceans’ (1973)
    ‘Relayer’ (1974)
    ‘Going for the One’ (1977)
    ‘Tormato’ (1978)
    ‘Drama’ (1980)
    ’90125′ (1983)
    ‘Big Generator’ (1987)

    If any band sounds sharper for remastering it is Yes and the alternative takes are usually worth having, but they've had more than enough of my money from remasters and reissues over the years. This collection would be good for the beginner, if they can afford the price.

    What I would like to see is an official release of the missing tracks from the Union tour. The Topographic Oceans material is also long overdue for an official release. I am not sure why Atlantic/Sony have dragged their heels as they presumably own the rights. Better still would be a new release from the Anderson,Wakeman and preferably Bruford lineup.

    I've just done a search for more artwork, but without success.

    Another item that is crying out for a re-release is the single-edit of Roundabout. I noticed the Fragile bonuses on this collection are America and the early rough edit of Roundabout, which were already available.
