Just to note that all the HV Box SACDs (except the bonus disc) are available separately now. They all have 27 August 2014 release dates and are listed as "cardboard mini-LP" format. What surprised me is that I was expecting CD dimensions, but these are all EP size fully-cardboard sleeves. They appear to be close reproductions of the LP artwork.

A 7" black plastic disc with a central hub holds the SACD. This is excellent. There is always a good-quality English lyric sheet, which more often than not is in the form of a paper sleeve for the EP/SACD. There is also the usual Japanese/ English lyric booklet, but no other extra material. The external plastic sleeve has a sticker which suggests these releases are related to Tokyo concerts. As such I tend to believe it when these issues are described as "limited edition".

I have purchased two of them and it is good news bad news. Yessyears and Big Generator.

The 7" mini LP's are stellar/fantastic, super cool.

The sound quality is horrible.

If I was a Yes freak then I would purchase all of them and put the 1990 or so RBCD's in them.

Yessyears? You probably have Yessongs on your mind?


Even that both titles are compressed Big Generator sounds much better than YesSongs, that Isao Kikuchi ruined to that extent, that one can only wonder what can be done to a fine live recording!

Oh yes, David, Yes yes, that's what I meant.

Yessongs in the 7" mini LP completely sucks, unlistenable.

I hope that Progeny box set will sound at least as impressive as Blue Tapes from King Crimson "Starless" box set.

AFAICR, Triple LP of Yessongs was a revelation for me. Never heard such a good live prog band performing their music before I first had listened to it.

This was probably turning point in my life why I am so dedicated fan of them.
