Matter of fact the only Yes song I ever "liked".

I thought a lot more of Yes when I was 15 or so than I do now, posted on December 19, 2020 at 16:59:55

But I do (still) like And You and I and Starship Trooper.

They were oh-so-pretentious... especially after Rick Wakeman joined the throng.




all the best,

I went to see Symphonic Yes in NYC the weekend before the towers were hit.

I love Classic Yes in general, but my favorite Yes tune (these days) might be "Turn of the Century". Possibly because it's one of the few times I've picked up my guitar to actually begin to work out what's going on. Personally I think the classical guitar should have been the centerpiece in this slightly overworked track. Just bring the faders down on everything else completely and let this happen....

Went to see Asia. At a break Howe sat down to do the Clap. The acoustic set up did not work. We were treated to an Electric Clap. Fantastic

I would be hard-pressed to pick 1 - G2.

Fragile was probably in the first dozen albums I ever bought. Roundabout was a great song but I didn't like putting the record on much. Lots of records I bought back then were like that.

I always thought, and still do, that Wakeman was the least pretentious of them all.

 

than, say, Tony Kaye (his predecessor)? (nt), posted on January 3, 2021 at 19:11:13
