Coming from Yes on December 2nd will be the 21-LP vinyl collection, Progeny: Seven Shows From Seventy-Two. The set, which was originally issued back in 2015 as a 14-CD boxe set, “holds every note from all seven shows, recorded in the fall of 1972 as the band’s tour jumped from Canada to North Carolina, and then Georgia and Tennessee, before their last stop in New York at Nassau Coliseum on November 20th.”

The package features “a cigarette-style flip-top box” with artwork by noted Yes graphic artist, Roger Dean and features each of the shows pressed on a different colored vinyl — ruby, orange, cobalt, soda bottle clear, tan, forest green, and electric blue. The collection is limited to 1,972 individually numbered copies and is available exclusively at for $474.98, with pre-orders available now.
