The Yes Album
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!
