After five decades of recording a staggering catalog of top-charting albums, a plethora of successful worldwide tours and basically the original architects of the prog-rock genre, the makings of their superstar reign began during the recording sessions for masterpiece The Yes Album.
With an ever interesting line-up of world class musicianship, this highly regarded chapter of Yes consisted of Jon Anderson (vocals), Chris Squire (bass/vocals), Bill Bruford (drums), Tony Kaye (keyboards) and the introduction of Steve Howe (guitars/vocals), The Yes Album truly stands as absolutely one of the finest and most revered rock albums of all time.
Yes fans continue to praise The Yes Album as a truly inspiring masterwork. This important piece of music consists of six amazing Yes workouts such as the definitive album opener "Yours Is No Disgrace," the hard rocking "Starship Trooper" and the brilliant "I've Seen All Good People" which featured the massive hit single "Your Move." From this moment on, there was no looking back for this superstar quintet.
Yes enthusiasts were superlatively rewarded with even more progressive rock favorites as the brilliant acoustic driven guitar work of Steve Howe's "Clap," Chris Squire and Jon Anderson's superb "Perpetual Change" and the jazz-rock fusion of "A Venture" truly made The Yes Album one of the finest albums of the classic rock era.
