The other tracks on this album come from BBC sessions in mid 1969 and early 1970 and a couple are taken from TV performances for Top Of The Pops and for French & German TV. All these tracks were to appear on one or other of the first two albums with the exception of “For Everyone” of which this appears to be the only recording. The familiar pattern of early YES is maintained with dramatic versions of The Beatles “Every Little Thing” and a further take on Stephen Stills’ “Everydays” alongside evolving YES originals such as “Astral Traveller“, “Then“, “Beyond And Before” and “Sweet Dreams” (co-written by Jon & David Foster who was the bass player in The Warriors).
