Here's today's YES trifecta. I present the most complete, best sounding Union demos available. This is the Union demos set to have IMHO. I had several other Union sessions that I traded for over the years (Union pre-mixes, She Walks Away demos, etc.) and have found all other versions to be inferior, and, in fact, I believe they are all sourced from this magnificent set. The sound quality varies a bit, but its so awesome to hears some of these songs in their original form. It's like hearing the songs again for the very first time - the way they were meant to be enjoyed. If you enjoy the Union LP and have never heard these demos before, you are in for a pleasant surprise. My only complaint is that my favorite Trevor Yes tune 'Miracle of Life' is not present. Check the cool samples
