Mmm! Right! (In the style of whispering Bob)
Welcome to the 1970sProgRockTimeWarp. Excellent stuff.
wonderful. Wurm remains one of my favourite, deliriously pompous rock wigouts ever
Yes at their peak. Just brill.
Mr William Bruford at his very best.
i hardly knew YES for some bizarre reason...i look forward to a marathon in the near future...where should i start?...chronological maybe
@Shaka You will get a hundred answers to that question from Yes fans. But I should start at The Yes Album and move forward chronologically (missing out Topographic Oceans would be acceptable). And STOP after Drama. Then go back to fill in the blanks.
@Shaka Start with 'Fragile' and 'Close To The Edge'.
I fell asleep listening to Relayer for the first time :-/
@ian38018 @Shaka YesFanAnswerNo.2 I agree with Ian to start at The Yes Album but I would stop at Going For The One and leap to their last album Fly From Here taking in as many live albums along the way.
The holy trinity, The Yes Album, Fragile and CTTE about covers it. Relayer for something a bit more uncompromising and Drama for the hell of it but as Ian38018 says stop after that.
@ian38018 Yeah Bill powers it along and those first three and a half minutes just blow you away.
@Shaka Whatever you do, don't ignore "Yes" and "Time and a Word" (the ones before "The Yes Album") - I did that and only discovered how good they were years later. @Bukowski Seriously good jam, of course!
Damn, nobody plays bass like this anymore! We need the next gen to take up the slack!
I'm with @obadiah99 their first 3 albums are great, but particularly "The Yes Album" Thanks @Bukowski .
Brilliant! didn't know this track! Great surprise :))
haven't heard this in more than 20 years & tempted to dive in there again...
prob my favorite Yes track (and album). thx
Had forgotten how good this (and Yes) is/are!
had the best album covers years ago,had a few myself...good one.
@Hawklord_Elf Had forgotten about Fly From Here - worth dropping in to, if only for Into The Storm.
