Only saw Yes once, in 1978 at Olympia in Detroit, theater in the round and it was great. You know, I have come to like this concert video. Yes, they are old men onstage, as I am an old man viewing it. When it comes to musicians in general, they mostly get better or at least maintain with age unless something else gets in the way. Voices are certainly the first thing to go. For me this is a pretty good disc.
