I'm a big prog rock fan(yes,elp,king crimson,early genesis etc) and just wanted to see
who else digs that stuff. I believe Dickey Betts himself once said "We're just a progressive rock band from the south."

They are freaking incredible. I love Yessongs. I own all of Yes on Vinyl thru 90125 except Time and a Word.

Yes was one of the first bands I ever got into--my dad had a copy of Fragile, and I played the hell out of it when I was a kid. Fragile is still my favorite, although The Yes Album and Clsoe to the Edge are right there.

Sadly, I loaned out all of my Yes lps in the late 80s and never got em back.

Hell yes. The four discs that make up both parts of "Keys to Ascension" are the ones I listen to the most. Great recordings and great performances. I'm a major fan of the side-long songs . . . Close to the Edge, Gates of Delirium, all of Tales, Awaken, etc. I don't have much use for Drama or Magnification, but I can find something I like in just about everything else. Oh yeah, and I love Tormato.


I could not take it so seriously really, when you called and said you'd seen a UFO . . .

Hey Matt,

There are secretly many more Yes, et al, fans here than most would care to admit
Still have my Close to the Edge, Fragile, and TOTO lps. For those who have yet to hear it, check out the live version of Awaken on the three disc set "The Word is Live". And, Jon Anderson has finally released "Animation" on disc....great work.

Matt, among some of the secret proggers on this list, you shall find fans of the "older" Moody Blues, Genesis, Camel, etc., etc.

Droog ol man, the KTA shows were great...hard to believe that was 11 years ago.

I was recently given the "Songs from Tsongas" DVD by Yes, of their 35th anniversary tour, and was pleasantly surprised - it is excellent. It is a real treat to see Steve Howe play the amazing stuff he does. While I have not been knocked out by a lot of their more recent discs, some of the studio tracks on the KTA discs have been good.

Old Genesis and King Crimson are even more my favorites.

Yes,Yes,Yes... It doesn't get much better than their first 5 or so albums. Also in the same vein I enjoyed ELP and early Genesis as well.

Call me strange but I'm a fan of the Trevor Rabin years! I like their older stuff but the three tours that I've seen were the 90125, Big Generator and the one that followed I think it was called The Works or something like that.

Never one of my favorite bands,but I liked them enough to own 4 or 5 of their albums and see them 2 or 3 times.

More of an ELP fan.

"Union," perhaps? That was done shortly after Big Generator and the ABW&H projects, and basically combined everyone from both groups. I saw it (twice), and thought it was a bit too crowded. Tony Kaye was okay for his role with the band, but with Wakeman on the stage, I wasn't much interested in what Kaye was doing.

"Masterworks" came in 2001, and featured shorter setlists of longer tunes. I'm pretty sure they were on the Howe-Wakeman-Anderson-Squire-White lineup for that one.

one of the most prolific bands of our musical generation. the band fulll with accomplished musicians from top to bottom.. Jon Anderson, still can sing as well as ever. Steve Howe, the mans got chops on that guitar.. ugly dude though..Chris Squire, on the bottom side...Alan White banging the skins,Rick Wakeman on keyboards.. journey the center of the earth... see them every time they have been around the past 10 years, all great shows with totally different song lists and approaches to their shows.....very up lifting , great jam music to enjoy!! YES>>seen the band early 70's and still kickin...

Love Yes !!! Seen them live many times. Fragile was I think around the fifth album I ever bought. I was hooked. Got tickets to see them live and it would have been my first show ever, I think I was in eighth grade. I ended up selling my ticket because Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman left the band and I didn't want that version of Yes to be my first concert experience. Ended up seeing Rush as my first show and was blown away.

Peace

Pete

Steve Howe is one of my favorite Guitar Players.

I've seen Yes Live almost as many times as the ABB.

Own all of their releases and Most of the side projects also.

Seen Jon and Steve solo many times also.

You should have gone. That tour was really good. As is the album they featured
(Drama). The album grew out of studio jams of Steve and Chris, and they
had some great extended jams on that tour. Geoff Downes was very good if
not as flashy as Wakeman. Trevor Horn was a bit uncomfortable singing some
of Jon's songs but that was the only negative. He actually did a pretty good job
at the shows I saw.

Trevor has this recurring nightmare where Chris calls him up out of the Blue
and asks him to perform at MSG with Yes that day. Kind of sums up his
anxiety of performing Live.

After that tour Trevor quit and Steve and Geoff formed Asia with John Wetton (King Crimson, UK, Family) and Carl Palmer. (ELP)

peace
John

I've seen YES the last few tours. Steve Howe is one fo the most underrated guitarists, rarely metioned when people are asked to name their top 10 rock guitarists. the biggest disgrace is they have are not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Have to agree Jason - it is one of my favorite headphone albums! Loved all the early Yes - Fragile and Close to the Edge were classics - I have Fragile in surround sound. When Going for the One came out, I played it everyday for a month. I really liked Awaken.

Saw them at least a couple of times.

I was fortunate enough to see them every year from 73-80 with 73 the best with Wakeman and doing Yessongs. In 80, Jon Anderson didn't tour with them and a sound-a-like took his place who wasn't bad. Chris Squire just went through the motions that night which was very disappointing and the whole band sounded flat. Every other time was great, however. Seeing a band in the 'round' was a first for me. The Yes Alblum and Close to the Edge were my favorites. Joe Bonnamassa did a cover of the start of Heart of the Sunrise the other night in Charlotte which was phenominal!

One of the greatest groups of all time. I own just about all their CD's. Still have some vinyl too. Fragile was the first I ever purchased. What an incredible album ! My favorite of theirs and that's saying a lot. Saw a show on the Close to the Edge
tour in 1972. Wow! Oh, a band fome California opened for them, had a couple of hits at the time. Who were they ????? Oh yeah, The Eagles ????
