    I cannot currently afford the three lp set so in view of my current obsession with BBT and the song Folklore, this double cd set represents at £15 , extremely great value for money with a fabulous sound too.
    So if you are like me and are late to the vinyl editions of BBT music especially trying to obtain the vinyl set of Folklore then go and buy this live set. Of the songs I currently own on official studio releases the live versions here are incredible. It's like going back to the 70s when I was a young lad hearing Yessongs for the very first time. The live versions of songs I knew we're very different, often extended and with a certain live power. Obviously with Yes you had a change of drummer after CTTE from Bruford to White (RIP Alan).
    This is such excellent music of a progressive nature yet with a pop sensibility not often found in this genre other than mid period Genesis. David Longfords vocals are a total joy to behold, he will be sorely missed by us all. RIP again David. Notice this phrase is becoming used way too often since a certain period in our history happened circa 2020-22. No I'm not a conspiracy theorist but way too many talented people are being taken from us way too early. Why !?!
    Rant over.
    So, just grab a copy of this live set and play it with low mood lighting, candles perhaps, your favourite drink( Orange spritzer in my case, I don't drink alcohol for medical reasons) and maybe an open log fire burning. Perfect pastoral English music of the highest calibre.
    Thanks to Greg, David and the guys.
