I was a big Yello fan. In the autumn of 1980 I bought Solid Pleasure as a mail-order import on Ralph Records. I thought it was one of the best albums I'd ever heard. All my friends dug it and they all went out and bought it too.
I missed the second album for some reason, don't know why, but expectations were high for the third 'You Gotta Say Yes...." especially since HMV were giving away white labels 12"s with initial purchases. White labels were quite exotic back then and not the ubiquitous beasts that spawned so much dance music later in the decade.
After a while I got bored of Dieter's voice to be honest. It all started to sound the same to me. I sold the album way back but kept the 12".

Although 3 tracks are either standard 12" or album mixes, Excess does appear to be an 'exclusive', certainly not the album version and diff in places to the Messages series version. Nice item to have!
