Yesterdays is a 1975 compilation album by Yes. Released as the band were about to explore their own solo projects, it consists mostly of material from their first two albums, Yes and Time And A Word. In addition, it features the b-side "Dear Father" and their cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "America" which was featured on an Atlantic Records sampler album in 1972 called "The New Age of Atlantic" (see AMG for track listing of this album). An edit of this extended recording was also released as a US single that year.

All of the tracks on this album feature Yes’s original line-up with Peter Banks and Tony Kaye except "America," which includes Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman.

This was the last Yes album until Drama (1980) to use cover artwork by Roger Dean. The front cover incorporates imagery from the cover of Time and a Word, while the back cover was designed to be used as an alternate front cover.
