Notes: (****) Howe writes of (13-15), that, "Due to the high number of re-releases, I choose to represent the '70s with just three examples". Note (14) is credited to White as well on YesYears. (19) is a band version of the piece on Yes's Union.

(22) was a b-side. (23) and (24) are not backing tracks of the versions on Union, which largely replaced Howe's guitar with Jimmy Haun's playing, but backing tracks with Howe featured prominently and, thus, significantly different. (33) is a new remix "without compression" by Paxman and Paxman is also described as having "helped" on (34) and (36), which also seem to be remixes. (35) was a bonus track in Japan and this is its first international release. (37) is an edit compared to the album version, removing Howe's middle section.

(45) is dated to 1985. (46-50) are dated to 1988. (51-55) are post-GTR recordings, from 1987. (56) is from 2002. (HP, 28 Aug 17)
