Classic Yes is the second compilation released by Yes. While the first, Yesterdays, mainly centred on their formative period, Classic Yes is exactly what it promises, a summation of the best moments during Yes' initial run as a group.

Originally released as a single LP with a bonus 45 RPM disc featuring live versions of "Roundabout" and "I've Seen All Good People" from 1978, everything has been compiled onto one handy CD. It was taken out of circulation by 2003.

Although it was initially not a strong seller, Classic Yes ultimately went platinum in the US and still remains the ideal entry point for Yes novices.

Classic Yes failed to chart in the UK. It reached #142 in the US during a chart stay of 5 weeks.
