180 Gram Double Vinyl! Featuring a Full Symphony Orchestra!

From topping the charts to epic pieces taking up a side of vinyl, and even both at the same time, Yes are among the longest lasting and the most successful of the ’70s progressive rock groups, proving to be one of the lasting 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 band. Where rivals such as Emerson, Lake & Palmer withered away commercially after the mid-’70s, and Genesis and King Crimson altered their sounds so radically as to become unrecognizable to their original fans, Yes retained the same sound, and performed much of the same repertoire that they were doing in 1971, and for their trouble, found themselves being taken seriously a quarter of a century later. Their audience remained huge because they had always attracted younger listeners drawn to their mix of daunting virtuosity, cosmic (often mystical) lyrics, complex musical textures, and powerful yet delicate lead vocals.

Magnification saw the band working with a full orchestra and without a dedicated keyboardist. The following YesSymphonic tour saw Anderson, Squire, Howe and White accompanied by Tom Brislin on keys and an orchestra. Wakeman was then back for the group’s 2002 international tour, and Yes toured regularly through to 2004, commemorating their 35th anniversary along the way. All of these performances and new recordings coincided with a massive amount of activity surrounding the group’s catalog.

For the very first time here comes the YES classic ''Magnification'' from 2001 on 2 LP sides to guarantee the best possible sound. The vinyl is 180 gram heavy-weight and the album comes in gatefold sleeve. Heavy package. Conductor Larry Groupe was invited to lead an orchestra and this made the album unique in relation to its other releases of the band.

"Many call Yes' brand of progressive rock 'symphonic rock.' The term means that the group produces arrangements in the vein of a symphony using typical rock instrumentation. With Magnification, Yes has taken that a step further, adding a symphony orchestra. The orchestra is not simply thrown over the top, though; the songs were written for this particular grouping... the addition of that symphony really does create a whole new texture. It also seems as if it inspired the band, and some members put in performances that are head and shoulders above their recent work." - Gary Hill,
