5.0 out of 5 stars From Tiny Acorns Etc., 6 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yesterdays (Audio CD)
Many reviews of this album point to the inclusion of the cover version of Simon and Garfunkel's America as the only high point. Well good as this track is - I first heard it on Radio 1 and had to get it on vinyl years ago - Yesterday's also acts as a fine introduction for fans from the Fragile era onwards (such as myself) to the early music of Yes.
What I find refreshing listening to some of the songs collected from the first two albums on Yesterdays is the simplicity of the arrangements combined with a honed musical friendship between Peter Banks on guitar and the late Tony Kaye on organ. No massed synthesisers, mellotrons etc as would be experienced on future albums, no obscure Portuguese stringed instruments to play a segue between bursts of filling threat electric guitar. Everything was so simple and easy going then...well it was the sixties. Hearing the likes of Time and A Word, Sweet Dreams, Survival and Dear Father in their raw, studio form is like seeing a favourite actor in an early film and helps to plot the progress of this most progressive band.
