More information: Reduced price re-issue of this double CD collection from legendary pre-Yes prog-rockers, The Syn, to coincide with the release of new live album Live Rosfest, and in anticipation of the bandís new studio album.
Chris Squire and Steve Nardelli first met in 1965 at a local battle of the bands. They went on to form 60ís psychedelic rock outfit, The Syn. After their split in 1967, Squire went on to form the band Yes.
This release is a double CD which charts the history of the band from 1965 to material recorded in 2004. It comes with a 16 page booklet charting the bands early history with an intro from Phil Collins.
