The yes album was to me the best all round album that this band produced. It was their third album release and they had just recruited Steve howe on guitar tony kaye was on hammond chris squire bass bill bruford drums and the great Jon Anderson vocals . this is one of those albums that i can play all the way through and not skip one song . the whole thing totally gels for me, I think Yes were at their very best there. When i saw them live in london in 1980 some ten years later they played almost every song from this album and we loved it. just a fantastic album.
