Yessongs is the first live album by Yes. It mostly documents the tour for the album Close To The Edge but also features two tracks ("Perpetual Change" and "Long Distance Runaround/The Fish") recorded during the previous Fragile tour. Yessongs was originally a 3-disc set on vinyl, but is now a double CD.

Yessongs reached #7 in the UK and #12 in the US during a chart stay of 32 weeks.

A film, also titled Yessongs, was released in 1973. It documents their concert at London’s Rainbow Theatre on Christmas night, 1972. The only part common to recording and film is "Würm," the final movement of "Starship Trooper," recorded at the Rainbow.
