Notes:
Union is the thirteenth studio album released in 1991. It was so called because it brought together the previous Yes album’s lineup (Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, Trevor Rabin, Alan White, Tony Kaye) and the then ex-Yes members group Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe (Jon Anderson, Bill Bruford, Rick Wakeman, and Steve Howe).
All former ABWH members (except Anderson, who was member of both bands) left Yes following the Union Tour, making of Union the last Yes album with its original drummer Bruford, and the last album with guitarist Howe and keyboardist Wakeman before their return in 1995. It is also the only Yes album featuring guitarist Rabin in which he did not play any keyboards, and the only with Yes being an octet.

would have been nice if it were a 2 disc set and included Angkor wat and give and take for the complete album.

Just listened to this MOV version and I have to agree with mastodon_t. They definitely know what they're doing over at MOV and this sounds very good even though it's on 1 disc.

While a reissue of this work on heavy weight vinyl is more than welcome, I am not sure how marketing an album with 30 minutes of music per side makes sense in 2016, when the vinyl market is essentially collectors and audiophiles. This should have been a 2xLP release.

Well, this YES but call it an UNION no. Most songs sound like a Jon Anderson solo-effort.
