    Hmm...not sure about the 'high demand from fans'. If the sound quality and mix is good I might be interested.

    Never before on CD, but already on DVD for 10 years... brilliant.

    ... and those samples sound ghastly. In parts, some instruments sound burried in back of the mix. No definition to the the mix. I've heard audience bootlegs that sound better than this.

    The playlist and lineup seem pretty much identical to the Live at Montreux 2003 DVD, which I've owned for many years. I'll pass, thank you very much.

    I was at the Glastonbury performance, it was great to see this line up playing the classics in the summer sunlight. I’m on the DVD when they cut to the crowd, enjoying the sounds next to Jon’s son.

    I don’t really need a CD of this as I’ve had the DVD for a decade, it’s a nice souvenir though.

    I have the Montreux DVD as well, and really like it.
    I thought this one looked familiar to the Montreux one.

    I remember watching this on BBC live at home. It was introduced by John Peel, who was excoriating. He told the watching millions how much he hated Yes, because of their "pompous self-indulgence".

    Of course, thirty odd years before, Peel was one of the prime moves behind the success of the band in providing them with air play.

    Yep, when punk came along Peel turned his back on everything else, total hypocrite.

    The Store For Music have been reissuing out of print prog DVDs from the early 2000s for a few years now. They also did Yes Acoustic, Steve Howe's Remedy and Jon's Tour Of The Universe. They come in card digipak style packaging but I think the quality is identical to the original DVDs so they're a good way to get these DVDs on the cheap if you don't already own them.

    I don't agree at all about Peel being a hypocrite. He was always committed to championing new, cutting edge, music. His main complaint about bands like Yes was that they became self-indulgent, that everything that made them fresh, vibrant, & exciting in their early incarnations was lost in the subsequent music. Whether or not you agree with this, he didn't turn against them because they were "prog" as such. For instance, he continued to give Peter Hammill the opportunity to record sessions for his show in the late 70s/early 80s. Whatever you may think about the merits of the bands in question, the music scene in general in the UK, & many of the prog bands that we care for around here, had become bloated &/or lost their way by 76/77. I think the music scene needed punk, which in turn paved the way for the really inventive, radical, music of post-punk - which I think had a similar status at the end of the 70s to the underground/proto-prog scene of the very late 60s.

    There may be well some truth in what you say but for example imho Yes, Genesis & Rush made their finest albums in '77, and then the 80's was an awful decade for rock music in general when music became secondary to its money making potential. What is the 'inventive, radical music of post punk' ? All I heard was dross.

    The 80s was a ridiculous decade. The hair styles were ridiculous, the clothing fashions were ridiculous, most TV shows were over the top, most movies were over the top. The ridiculous music was an extension of that.

    Apparently this one is an illegal release. See Wakeman's tweet on this:

    That doesn't surprise me, Amazon is covered in bootlegs these days.
