You mean "The Yes Album"
Starship Trooper, etc.
Great Album.
Went to a specific college because they had the whole album you could listen to in the student union. Well.....it wasn't that simple.

This is from (I think) 1969 with Peter Banks on guitar instead of Steve Howe. It indeed rocks hard, and Chris Squire's bass playing blows my mind. The harmonies at the end are beautiful and Jon Anderson's final note is so powerful! Love it...

the first two are among my favorites...

Survival
Then
Astral Traveller
Every Little Thing She Does
Time and a Word

You can see the foundation for what they were to later become; they just needed a more eclectic guitar player than Peter Banks who was too jazzy

Yes was a lessor band,though still one of my fav's, without BRUFORD. He is the guy making it rock hard.

I just saw Jon Anderson. Yes seems to be greedy as they replaced him with an identical sounding singer due to past health issues.
I won't see Yes without him and he puts on one hell of a solo command performance. Flawless.

Peter Banks sometimes posts here. It would be great to get his insights.
