Biography

Far and away the longest lasting and the most successful of the '70s progressive rock groups, Yes proved to be one of the lingering success stories from that musical genre. The band, founded in 1968, overcame a generational shift in its audience and the departure of its most visible members at key points in its history to reach the end of the century as the definitive progressive rock ...

Format: Audio CD
"Yes" is the original debut album from Yes not to be confused with "The Yes Album," which was their third album but the first one with which most people would be familiar. "Yes" is not as strong an album, but it is a lot better than you would expect given the level of performance excellent you expect from the group down the road, especially since at this point you have Peter Banks on guitar and Tony Kaye doing the assorted keyboard work. Most of the songs are written by vocalist Jon Anderson and bass player Chris Squire, along with covers of songs by Lennon & McCartney ("Every Little Thing") and Crosby & McQuinn ("I See You"). It is rather strange to thing of the Beatle and the Byrds being major influences on Yes, but there you go. This is an album for lifelong fans of the group to check out, now that it has been reissued. Knowing where the Yes sound ends up, you can hear it in embryonic form, most notably on "Harold Land," which most anticipates the multi-part suites that would consume an entire record side on the group's best albums. However, when you hear the driving sound of the opening cut, "Beyond and Before," you will wonder who you are listening to. Banks does some interesting guitar work on both of the cover songs, especially the atypical version of the Beatles song.
This 2003 reissue is impressive because the bonus tracks add up to more playing time than the 8 original tracks on the album. The informative liner notes are from Mike Tiano. There early and finished versions of three songs, including "Something's Coming" from "West Side Story," which particularly fits Anderson's distinctive vocal style (you will be reminded of Yes' later cover of Simon & Garfunkle's "America"). The before and after approach with these bonus tracks is quite interesting. There are few opportunities this good to go back and look at what one of your favorite groups was doing when they were first starting out, which makes this expanded reissue of "Yes" a real treat.

Format: Audio CD
Album one is YES, by the group Yes from 1969. Track listing is
1 Beyond and Before 2 I see you 3 Yesterday and Today 4 Looking around
5 Harold Land 6 Every little thing 7 Sweetness 8 Survival
bonus tracks 9 Everydays (single version) 10 Dear Father (early version 2) 11 something's coming 12 Everydays (early version) 13 Dear Father (early version 1) 14 somethings coming (early version)

The album has tracks written by the group themselves and other notable song writers including McGuinn/Crosby on I see you, and Stephen stills on Everydays. (from Crosby. Stills, Nash and Young) and Lennon and McCartney on Every little thing, As well as Leonard Bernstien and Stephen Sondheim on Something's coming.

The song Harold Land was named after a Harold Land a hard bop tenor saxophone player but the song is actually about a different character who has been affected by war,
The song Every little thing written by Lennon and McCartney has the main guitar riff from the Beatles song Day Tripper.
There were two versions of the cover art work for the album. One is the simple words YES for the British version and the other is the picture of the band for the US version. This version has the original British version.
All tracks remastered

Format: Audio CD
This is a fascinating album. I came to know Yes through 'The Yes Album' and had never owned this debut album till now, over forty years later. And what an enjoyable experience it was to play it for the first time!

No, it's not as good as 'The Yes Album', which is regarded as a classic of prog rock. But the foundations are here, itching to get out and be developed. The distinctive voice of Jon Anderson, the close harmonies and unique bass playing of Chris Squire: they are there but not on every track. Bill Bruford's jazz inspired drumming is high quality and reminded me at times of Carl Palmer.

I ususually hate Beatles covers, but 'Every Little Thing' is more than a cover - it is a powerful reworking that shows how a standard 3 minute quality pop song can be turned into something much bigger and more powerful.

This is more than an album for completists: it is a good play in its own right. The five-star albums were coming later: this is a very creditable four-star debut and worth owning.

After owning this album on vinyl for 25 years , but not having a turntable for the past 7 years...i finally bought it on cd. It's even better than i remember, an absolutely stunning collection of songs, played with a flair to match any of the later albums by the 'definitive' Yes line-up. Jon anderson's voice is ,as always,simply beautiful. Chris Squire's bass,is, as mentioned by another reviewer forward in the mix,but that can only be a good thing right ?, he drives these songs along brilliantly.Bill Bruford was always in and out of the various line -ups,and we all know how good he is,and here he excels himself during both the subtle moments and the times when these songs simply rock. Tony Kaye's organ ,whilst sounding it's age,(this was 1969 remember),is all the better for it, it just sounds so 'real',and not at all the product of an expensive studio,as keyboard instruments often do.Indeed this entire album is pretty raw,and Peter Bank's agressive guitar style (as opposed to my favourite guitarist,Steve Howe's generally more jazzy,experimental style) is the icing on the cake. Thanks to Banks ,YES ,sound almost like a conventional rock band here,at times,but i said almost, and rest assured, this is bold and daring music. Sure enough as others have mentioned,they cover The Beatles here, but it's two minutes plus into that song, before the vocal starts, the intro is a group of top class musicians , having a great time , and this is most definitely passed on to the listener. It's joyous and infectious.
I'm rambling, this is a wonderous debut album, if you like YES even a little, you need this record. PS- This is one of the few cd's i have bought where the bonus tracks are truly deserving of mention, but they are that special ,i believe this should have been a double vinyl all those years ago.
