Comments: Jon Anderson is listed as performing only on tracks 7 and 15.  
However, since Yes' "Survival" makes an appearance on this collection -- and 
features a couple of Anderson's frequent collaborators -- one has to wonder 
whether he also played on the track.  This disk was cited in Yes Magazine as 
featuring two other Anderson compositions: "A Heart Away" (track 6) and "A 
Walk with Bear" (likely a reference to track 7).  The liner notes credit both of 
these tracks to John Laraio, so Anderson's actual input into these songs 
remains unclear.
