    I played The Green Album yesterday, a fabulous album. I can't help but wonder if Eddie should have stayed in Yes - maybe this is what 80's Yes should have sounded like!

    At least with a better singer than Eddie Jobson.

    That's a great fantasy, and believe me, I would have loved for that to happen, but I think it would be a serious case of "too many cooks". Plus Eddie didn't like the fact that they were telling him what his keyboard rig would consist of.

    He had a nice high range and his pitch was spot on. I thought it was a pretty great debut as lead vocalist.

    He says that he turned down an initial offer to join Cinema because he was still making The Green Album. I think there would have been a strong fit between The Green Album material and what was on 90125. One can imagine some alternate universe where he brought that material into the band. And maybe a whole timeline where this kept Jobson in (prog-ish) rock rather than his move to soundtracks...

    But then hypothetical alternate universes always sound great!

    I had to rip a copy of my Green Album CD so I could make a segue of only some of the instrumental sections.

    To me his voice is what spoils The Green Album for me. It would have been better if he had used another vocalist. And I like several vocalists that are considered an aquired taste.

    I would like to suggest that you people are overly sensitive.

    As said, I can take a lot of vocals, but Eddie Jobson is a great keyboard and violin player, but I rather don't hear him sing. To each their own, but I don't think I'm overly sensitive.

    Somewhere Tony Banks is nodding.

    OK, go ahead.

    got my order from FYE(thanks for that tip!) and took a listen at work this morning.

    enjoyable set though for those on the fence the unreleased tracks total 8 minutes, if you are like me and have all the UK you get about 45 minutes of stuff. the booklet is nice with track by track notes from Eddie. definitely in for future sets though of which I presume I will own none of it on CD(still vinyl only for the green album for me)

    Does it work in one's ears?

    That said, the idea of doing a "compilation" is very 20th century. I do not see the point. I've got the UK albums and most of the Roxy albums. I'm never playing CD 2 of this. Many musicians these days focus more on completeness and releasing rarities than just the 'greatest hits'. Something like, say, Steve Howe's Anthology 2 still has some greatest hits, buts put more weight on previously unreleased material or at least alternate versions of familiar tracks.

    I've bought compilations to get an idea of whether or not an artist or band is worth pursuing; from that point of view they're useful. Yes, I could look them up on YouTube or Spotify, but generally I want something to listen to in the car and a five-quid CD does the job.

    On the other hand, I've stupidly bought compilations of bands whose work I already have, or requested them as Christmas presents or the like - e.g. Led Zeppelin's Mothership.
