Notes: A sequel to Yes, Friends and Relatives, many of the songs even come from the same albums (e.g. Coming Home and The More You Know). The only track not readily available elsewhere is (9): "Night Trade" was originally released on Guitar Player; I presume this is a new version, but have not been able to check on that.

Tracks (7) and (8) on disc 1 are swapped around in the liner notes for the UK release, but this has been corrected for the Japanese release. (7) is credited as coming from Madman Blues, but may actually be from Rick and Adam Wakeman's Vignettes. (HP, 22 Sep 01)
