9012Live: The Solos is the third live album by Yes. Released as a mini LP in 1985, the album features solos from each of the five band members, plus live versions of two songs from their 1983 album 90125.[2]

Missing from the Yes "expanded and remastered" 2003/2004 series by Rhino/Warner (like Yessongs, Yesshows and Big Generator), 9012Live was finally remastered and expanded in 2009 by Isao Kikuchi; the album was published by Warner Music Japan as part of their "Yes SHM-CD Papersleeve" series.

The video of the show, directed by Steven Soderbergh, released as 9012Live the same year, features all the concert instead of just the solos. A 2006 reissue featured previously unseen material and a director's cut without the 1950s stock footage.
