With 1983's 90125 achieving massive sales worldwide, it was time for Yes to reinforce their success with a tour. Virtually the whole of the remaining year would be spent on tour, starting in America during February, crossing the Atlantic for European and UK dates, then a stint in Japan, ending back in the US in October. It seemed as if there were no limits to what they could achieve – Yes were a global band again, and for the second time.
Recorded during that integral tour was 9012Live: The Solos, the third live album by Yes originally issued as a mini LP in 1985. The album captured each member in their own cosmic and artistic space, with solos from each artist, plus live versions of crowd pleasers "Hold On" and "Changes" from 90125. The long out of print album features incredible vocal work outs from Jon Anderson on "Soon" from Relayer, Alan White and Chris Squire's duo solos on "Whitefish" and to top things off even "Amazing Grace" receives an entirely new interpretation from the magical bass of Squire.
