Just bought mine...factory sealed...and the Nassau show mini lp is folded backwards...meaning the artwork is on the INSIDE and the tracklisting is on the OUTSIDE! It looks as though it was accidentally manufactured this way, but being OCD I want all my discs to look the same! Anyone else have this "problem"?!?!

Gauging from the images above, there's not as much Dean artwork as I expected on 7 gatefold mini lp sleeves and box.

For those interested in the Japanese SHM CD limited edition release of this boxset I thought that I would give you my thoughts. Below is my original review of this wonderful boxset and so read on afterwards.

What you get with this Japanese SHM CD over the European version is as follows : the outer box and individual inner card sleeves are identical to the European release and In fact have been manufactured in Europe and shipped to Japan. Around this outer box is the Japanese OBI which wraps around the left side, rear and base of the box. Inside, the booklet is identical to the European release but you also get a separate Japanese booklet which is printed in black & white. You also get 5 black and white postcard photos of the band from the Japanese leg of this Close to the Edge tour taken in early 1973. Also different are the discs. These are the Japanese manufactured SHM CDs (Super High Material) discs which are a JVC developed product but still play in conventional CD players. According to the hype, these discs have greater transparency than conventional CDs and therefore reduce laser reading errors and supposedly deliver a better sound. There is much debate on the internet on this subject therefore you can look this one up separately. As for my original review of this special boxset, please read on .......

Now this is something very exciting and special for us serious Yes fans to celebrate. As a long time major fan, “Progeny” is the most important and significant Yes release since “Going for the One” in 1977. The original triple album Yessongs which was released in 1973 introduced me to rock music in my formative early teens. It was magical then and it still is forty plus years on. Imagine my excitement therefore when I heard that Yessongs x 14 was coming out !!! “Progeny” is made up of seven complete and recently unearthed shows from their tour in the fall of 1972 recorded on the east coast of the U.S. and Canada. There was an eighth show also discovered in the same batch of quarter inch reel to reel tapes. The first show recorded was in Hartford, Connecticut but this was a poor recording, plagued by equipment problems, a non-responsive crowd, and the weakest performance of the set therefore this show was deemed unusable. Here in this amazing seven show / 14 CD box set is the full glorious event ! As well as having all of the music, you also get all of Roger Deans beautiful artwork - a lot more than the highlights package. Each individual card CD case for each of the seven shows has its own Dean piece reminiscent of the original Yessongs artwork. Why this release is so important is that Yes were totally on fire creatively and technically during 1971 and 1972. They had recorded three incredibly important albums and were now taking these albums on the road. The immensely wonderful “Yessongs” album captured this period live and although the performances and content are stunning, the nature and mixing of the recordings is different to Progeny. Whilst Yessongs is somehow mystical in its sound presentation, "Progeny” utilises modern studio technology to restore the 40 plus year old tapes and presents these shows as if the listener is in the first few rows of these concerts. What sets this apart from Yessongs however is that mistakes and blemishes remain in place. They have not been edited or over dubbed out. This then is a true document of every note of every show from their late 1972 North American tour (bar the unusable show tape) and at long last the very long wait to hear all this important material in pristine sound quality is over. What is interesting is the gradual discovery of gem after gem as you manage to work through the set. Those who decide to buy the highlights package will enjoy it very much but they are missing many very interesting moments. As you work through each show you get to spot the odd track which was incorporated into Yessongs and many which sound very similar to the Yessongs versions until all of a sudden you get to show six (Univeristy of Georgia... Which due to a labelling error on the discs and packaging is in fact Knoxville ... See more on this below). This show is wonderful and I counted at least five songs from this show which appeared on Yessongs. You also get the un interrupted, unedited version of the songs plus you get to hear where Eddie Offord edited the songs originally. Amazingly I counted five places where the Yessongs version of Yours is no disgrace had been edited. You get the full thing here ! The all important Roger Dean artwork is also perfect. Rogers contribution is equally as important as the Yes music and it's here adding the final sparkle to this package.After years worth of listening to acquired substandard quality audience bootleg recordings from this era, I will be shutting myself away in a darkened room for hours to come, pouring over these important shows recorded during their “Close to the Edge tour”. If I could have one more wish please, it would be a similar release of live material from their late 1971 / Spring 1972 Fragile tour featuring the very different style of Bill Bruford on drums playing the incredible tracks “Perpetual Change”, “Long Distance Runaround” and “The Fish” sequence. This material must be out there somewhere. In conclusion this is a must have release. It does not replace the amazing Yessongs but adds to it and enhances that album in a perfect way. I would award 6 stars out of 5.

Note : there are some labelling errors on the packaging. Within the 14disc boxset, CDs 9 & 10 are labelled Athens Georgia but are of the Knoxville show. CDs 10 & 11 are labelled Knoxville but are of the Athens Georgia show. CDs 3 & 4 are labelled National Arts Centre , English Theatre, Ottawa, but the correct venue was Civic Centre, Ottawa. The 'highlights' package is mislabelled thus : And You & I and Close to the Edge are from the Duke University show and not Cameron Indoor Stadium. With this then in mind, below is what I believe to be the sources of the Yessongs tracks, however please comment if you disagree and have any additional information :
