Yes recently revealed that a new live album titled Topographic Drama — Live Across America featuring performances from the group’s recent U.S. tour dates would be released next year, but now comes word that the collection will arrive sooner than expected. The prog-rock legends have announced that the album will be available on November 24 as a two-CD set and a three-LP vinyl package.
Topographic Drama — Live Across America includes performances culled from 12 concerts that Yes played in February 2017. Mirroring those shows, the album features the band performing its entire 1979 album Drama, the first and fourth sides of its 1973 double-disc concept record Tales from Topographic Oceans as well as a selection of the group’s classic songs.
Yes’ current lineup — guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Geoff Downes, bassist Billy Sherwood and singer Jon Davison — appears on the album, while guest drummer Jay Schellen also is featured.
Topographic Drama‘s cover was designed by longtime Yes artist Roger Dean.
Here’s the track list of the two-CD version of the album:
“Does It Really Happen?”
“Into the Lens”
“Run Through the Light”
“And You and I”
“Heart of the Sunrise”
“The Revealing Science of God”
“Leaves of Green”
