1979s “Live in Philadelphia” clearly exemplifies the power of Yes’ music. Captured here at the peak of their success with Jon Anderson on vocals, Chris Quire (bass), Alan White (drums) Steve Howe (guitars) and Rick Wakeman (keyboards), this is Yes at what many believe to be their creative best.

Prior to several drastic personnel changes in the 1980s this is the definitive Yes line-up and features some of their most popular pieces including “Starship Trooper” and of course “Roundabout”. Amongst the show’s highlights for fans there is a guitar verses keyboards battle between Howe and Wakeman, as well as a powerful drum solo from legendary Alan White. Capturing a stage show that was at the time very much a state-of-the-art production, this DVD chronicles a band that made a unique contribution to live music performance during the 1970s with their balance of individual personality, visionary writing, almost telepathic interaction and brilliant instrumentation.

Track Listing: 1. Siberian Khatru 2. Circus Of Heavan 3. The Ancient 4. Starship Trooper 5. I've Seen All Good People 6. Roundabout
