First Time Audiophile Vinyl And Gatefold Cover Presentation!
Mastered Impeccably From The Original Atlantic Records Tapes By Joe Reagoso At Friday
Music Studios And Capitol Records, Hollywood, CA
After four plus decades of recording a staggering catalog of top charting albums, a plethora of successful worldwide tours and basically being the original architects of the prog-rock genre, Yes have continually given the fans their all and it all began humbly in 1969 with their first LP simply called Yes.
With an ever interesting line-up of world class musicianship, this highly regarded chapter of Yes consisted of Jon Anderson (vocals), Chris Squire (bass/vocals), Peter Banks (guitars/vocals), Bill Bruford on drums and keyboardist Tony Kaye. Yes truly stands as absolutely one of the most intriguing debut albums to begin the dawn of the prog-rock movement.
Yes fans continue to praise Yes as a truly inspiring masterwork. This important piece of music consists of eight amazing Yes workouts such as the definitive side one opener Beyond and Before, the art rock driven interpretation of The Beatles' Every Little Thing and of course the international fan favorite Survival. Also featured from the Vincent Gallo film Buffalo '66 is the classic Sweetness from this incredible first album release.
Yes enthusiasts were superlatively rewarded with even more progressive rock favorites as the brilliant acoustic driven balladry of Jon Anderson's Yesterday, Chris Squire and Jon Anderson's superb centerpiece Looking Around and the powerful Bill Bruford, Jon Anderson and Chris Squire Harold Land truly made Yes one of the finest albums of the early classic rock era.
