This is the 1969 debut recording of Yes, not to be confused with the band's 1971 landmark release `The Yes Album' with which they broke through to a bigger audience.

Most of the song writing is by founder members Jon Anderson and Chris Squire, the early drivers of the band. Some covers of well-known songs (complete re-interpretations is more accurate) by The Beatles and The Byrds also feature.

This early line-up included Tony Kaye on keyboards and Peter Banks on guitar, prior to Rick Wakeman and Steve Howe joining the band in 1971. They do a workmanlike job, but Banks lacks Howe's gutsy and inventive style of playing. The vocal harmonies between Anderson and Squire which became such a recognisable part of the `Yes sound' are very much in evidence here, even at this very early stage.

For a bunch of guys in their early 20s there's no denying this is an impressive effort, with some fine compositions and tight playing, but then this was the golden age for mould-breaking rock music. The seeds of the later Yes are audible in the music, but overall the sound is that of a melodic pop group.

In addition to the 8 original album tracks, this re-issue CD has 6 bonus tracks. You get 2 alternate versions of `Everydays', a track originally on the 1970 `Time and a Word' album; and 2 versions each of the previously unreleased `Dear Father' and `Something's Coming'.

There's a 16-page booklet with a well-written Yes retrospective from Mike Tiano, plus all the song lyrics and plenty of pics of the young band. The artwork is very 1960s, and somehow goes with the music.

Superb - took me back to the Marquee when Peter Banks on guitar. Brilliant covers - pity they hadn't recorded "Carpet Man". Bruford was so underestimated.

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.

By GOODBYE! TOP 500 REVIEWER on 17 Feb. 2016

I must admit to having a real soft spot for this curious album.

It is often overlooked by Yes fans because Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman had left the band by this stage. Instead, we have Trevor Horn of Buggles on lead vocals - not the greatest singer but he is competent.

The results are rather pleasing. The songwriting is excellent with 'Into the Lens' worthy of a special mention. The album is a curious mix but holds together well. In time-honoured tradition, the musicianship is superb.

Worth investigating.

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.
