I can't remember who seeded this in the first place, but it's a real goodie!
Here's the notes by the original seeder -
The Alternate Generator

Factory Pressed CD
Cat. # DD1002
Yes - Big Generator Line-Up:
Jon Anderson - Lead Vocals
Tony Kaye - Keyboards
Trevor Rabin - Guitars, Keyboards, Backing Vocals
Chris Squire - Bass, Backing Vocals
Alan White - Drums & Percussion
Track 1 through 9 are demo and alternate tracks from "Big Generator". Rumor has it that these are the Trevor Horn produced songs, who left the project before it was completed.
Track 10,11,12 and 13 are Jon & Vangelis demos, and stated on the cover art to be recorded in 1986.
Research suggests that they were recorded somewhere between the "Private Collection" album (1983)
and "Page Of Live" (1991).
Track 10 "Let's Pretend" is the original JON & VANGELIS version (demo). In 1989 this song was recorded and included on the release, Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe.
Limited edition of 300 copies from Germany, sold (bootleg) at the time for a very
expensive price. Liberated now. Trade freely.
Quality: Studio Recordings....Rating: 5 Stars (using the old rating system)...a must have

Cover Art: I include the original cover art that it came with. Errors could be found in the track
list (starting at track nine), in which I corrected (see "correct track listing" above).
Track 13 "Distant Thunder" as stated on the cover art is not included on this BOOT (as listed
on cd inside and backing (both are the exact same).
Photos (backing) also incorrectly show the Union line-up. The YesWest (nicknamed because band members were living on the west coast of the United States) band members are listed (see above).
The actual cover reminds one of Tales From Topographic Oceans. It's a great album from YesPast, but has nothing to do with this period release (Big Generator).
Note: What really counts here is the quality of the music. Should someone want to make new cover art that reflects what is actually on the CD, please feel free to do so.
