IOW, Dave has given you three good choices there, but I have to say that 'Yessongs' - the triple live album is my favourite. I just find the renditions there so much more dynamic. Have a listen to 'Starship Trooper', 'Perpetual Change' and 'Yours is no Disgrace ' from that set. It captures the band's live energy and occasional funkyness. My favourite studio LP is 'Relayer', but I think that might be a step too far for you. If you listen to the first couple of minutes of 'Soundchaser', you'll hear what I mean
Also, there is a fabulous solo LP by bass player Chris Squire called 'Fish Out of Water' which is very accessible.
