Welcome to Yessounds, a site dedicated to Yes, my most favorite rock band!
My name is Chrysanthemum, and I created this site to make downloadable Yes-focused media of independent origin and the multitude of Yes-related websites more accessible to existing and potential fans. As peer-to-peer protocols are increasingly being throttled, my purpose here is to offer on-demand direct downloads as an alternative for the increasing number of fans, including myself, who have been affected. Over 300 packages of audience-recorded lossless audio and video of Yes concerts are available here, as well as the most comprehensive list of active Yes and Yes-member-related links on the web today..
Accessing the archive requires Adobe Flash. The requirements are minimal for the remainder of the site. For more on browser requirements, visit the Web Browser Requirements page.
Getting Help Playing the Media Files
In addition to the “Yes Media” and “Yes Links” links on the top and bottom menu bars, the menu bars also have links to get “Help” with downloading and playing some of the media formats, such as FLAC, a lossless audio format, on this site. I recommend using the free VLC Media Player (available for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and others) to play the content on this site, for which I provide Windows installation instructions.
Update Notifications and Contacting Me
To be notified of new media postings to this site, such as new audio or video downloads, online videos, new site features, or new links, follow the Yessounds at Twitter. I use this to post alerts on content updates, as well as other important announcements. More detailed information will be posted to the Yessounds Blog. A link to the RSS feed for Twitter follows. Note that RSS links do not work directly in Google Chrome without the RSS Extesnion.
I welcome your questions, comments and suggestions, as well as new links to put on this site! Please understand that hearing that Yes fans are enjoying this site is the only encouragement I have for continuing to have and maintain this site. I really enjoy hearing from and connecting with new people!
I can be reached at YesFans.com through my member page at yesfans.com:
The top and bottom menu bars on nearly all non-help pages have “Contact Me” links which open this page. help pages presently open in a new window.
This is not a commercial site; no visitors are charged for access to any content linked from this site. No officially-released content is available here, and any content here which is subsequently released officially will be promptly removed. This is not a trading site, as I offer everything here freely to any visitor. Access is anonymous. There are no logins to access content, and only aggregate information is collected.
Donations towards the maintaining and upgrading the web services used by this site, including towards hosting fees for both the web service and file hosting.
I do pay for a Premium MediaFire file hosting account for those files which I have uploaded so those files will not be deleted if they are not accessed within a restricted time period, and to extend the aggregate size limits of the content. Thanks to a few donations, this site now has its own domain (though so far on an annual renewal basis), and 1000Gb of space, of which about a third is in use. Any amount at all would be most gratefully accepted!
