Songs from Tsongas is a live video and album by the English rock band Yes, released on DVD in 2005 and CD and Blu-ray in 2014 by Image Entertainment. It was recorded at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell, Massachusetts on 15 May 2004 during the band's 2004 tour in celebration of their 35th anniversary.

Contents[edit]

The setlist features songs from all eras of the band's career, including a rare performance of the arrangement of "Every Little Thing" from their first album, Yes (1969) and "Mind Drive" from Keys to Ascension (1996)

Release[edit]

On 23 September 2014, a Deluxe Edition was released on DVD, Blu-ray, and three CDs. The video also features a 70 minute edit of the band's show at the Lugano Jazz Festival in Lugano, Switzerland on 8 July 2004. The Japanese edition of the Blu-ray release includes the entire show at Lugano and "Ritual (Nous sommes du soleil)" in the correct place in the Lowell show, instead of being offered as a bonus track on the international release. On both editions, the Lugano concert is presented in standard definition with 720x480 resolution.
