More information: In 1993, the album Symphonic Music of Yes was released, featuring orchestrated Yes tracks arranged by Dee Palmer. Steve Howe, Bill Bruford and Jon Anderson perform on the record, joined by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra and the London Community Gospel Choir.

The following Yes studio album was masterminded by a record company, rather than by the band itself. Victory Music approached Trevor Rabin with a proposal to produce an album solely with the 90125 line-up. Rabin initially countered by requesting that Rick Wakeman also be included. Rabin began assembling the album at his home, using the then-pioneering concept of a digital home studio, and used material written by himself and Anderson. The new album was well into production in 1993, but Wakeman's involvement had finally been cancelled, as his refusal to leave his long-serving management created insuperable legal problems.

Talk was released in March 1994 and is the band's fourteenth studio release. Its cover was designed by pop artist Peter Max. The record was largely composed and performed by Rabin, with the other band members following Rabin's tracks for their respective instrumentation. It was digitally recorded and produced by Rabin with engineer Michael Jay, using 3.4 GB of hard disk storage split among four networked Apple Macintosh computers running Digital Performer. The album blended elements of radio-friendly rock with a more structurally ambitious approach, taken from the band's progressive blueprint, with the fifteen-minute track ‘Endless Dream’. The album reached number 20 in the UK and number 33 in the U.S. The track ‘The Calling’ reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and ‘Walls’, which Rabin had written with former Supertramp songwriter and co-founder Roger Hodgson, peaked at number 24. It also became Yes's second-last-charting single. Rabin and Hodgson wrote a lot of material together and became close friends. Yes performed ‘Walls’ on Late Show with David Letterman on 20 June 1994.

The 1994 tour (for which the band included side man Billy Sherwood on additional guitar and keyboards) used a sound system developed by Rabin named Concertsonics which allowed the audience located in certain seating areas to tune portable FM radios to a specific frequency, so they could hear the concert with headphones.

The band’s concert at the Thomas and Mack Center, on the campus of UNLV just outside the city of Las Vegas, in Nevada, took place on July 27th 1994, and the gig was recorded for live FM radio transmission. It's now available on this new 2CD collection.

Note: Recording quality can vary on FM broadcast releases.
