"Yours Is No Disgrace" is a song by English progressive rock band Yes, which first appeared as the opening song of their album The Yes Album. It was written by all five members of the band: Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, Steve Howe, Tony Kaye and Bill Bruford. The song has been a regular feature of Yes' live shows.

Yours is No Disgrace was always Steve Howe's signature piece. the tour & until this post, had never heard nor seen any live footage from it.
