Totally listening to "Awaken" right now. It's soooo epic.
Then, "Heart of the Sunrise". The epicness doesn't stop!
Anywho - Yes! They are officially in the process of recording the new album! Pictures on their Facebook page prove it.
So, in 1970, Yes released their second album - Time and a Word. That's a wonderfully awesome album. It's the first (and only second) album of theirs to feature a whole orchestra behind the music. Again, many of the songs were cover songs. "Astral Traveller" was not. That is an amazing song!
The Tales lineup - Early 2000s. Love these guys.
Their debut single in 1969! It's the fun picture! And Peter still has no idea what is going on. Still trying to figure why Tony is in some medieval wheelchair. This was before his car accident.
From the Asia video, "Don't Cry". They all encounter a woman, fall for her a bit, and then they all die one by one. Except for John Wetton. Lucky b*****d. (No, John's cool - plus, they all technically didn't die)
Some alternative cover to their first album. Jon is still trying to look tall.
This guy right here is Jon Davison. HE IS AMAZING. Steve Howe even said, "You close your eyes and it sounds like Jon [Anderson]. That's never happened before" and he is damn right. I cannot wait for this new album because Jon Davison is singing on it!!
Let the record show that Chris Squire indeed has some seriously epic boots. And Bill looks like he's in charge. Jon looks like he's about to argue with that. Steve looks cute and he had just joined the band.
Relayer collaborations. Listening to what Chris has to say. Steve's looks about ready to disagree with him.
Jon and Chris have psychic linkage. Steve's just having a good time. I think this is from the very early 70s.
Steve Howe playing "Clap" at a recent concert. Still sounds amazing.
Ruth Eckerd Hall. Steve's gait says "I'm the Great Steve Howe. I can run circles around all you people!" He also looks extremely happy. I love the others. They're like "Nope".
Released in 1972. Widely considered by many to be their best album and one of the greatest Progressive Rock albums of all time.
They're all facing different directions.
The back of the LP for Close to the Edge.
Probably playing "I've Seen All Good People". Love that one, but who doesn't?
If Geoff's hair gets a little longer and he dons a cape, he could almost pass for Rick.
Such a wonderful picture of Chris.
