The Yes Al­bum

Guitar Techniques - - Music Reviews -


When Yes’s third al­bum was re­leased at the dawn of the 1970s it be­came re­garded as the de­fin­i­tive prog rock state­ment of its time. But tech­nol­ogy has come a long way since then, and now con­tem­po­rary prog mas­ter Steven Wil­son has taken the orig­i­nal mas­ter tapes to add some magic of his own. So can the band’s ‘Shin­ing, fly­ing pur­ple wolfhounds…’ sound even bet­ter? Hap­pily, the an­swer is, well, “Yes!” as this re­vised pack­age de­liv­ers on all fronts. Not only do we get the orig­i­nal al­bum but with added punch, dy­nam­ics and sound­ing as fresh as a daisy, we also get a whole ex­tra disk of added fea­tures. For a start there’s a ver­sion of A Ven­ture that doesn’t fade at the be­gin­ning of Steve Howe’s solo, em­bel­lished liner notes, live tracks and many more fea­tures that will keep a smile on the face of any Yes fan for the fore­see­able fu­ture!
