Their lerycs are very inspiring and so mysterious..:). I recomend all the albums. Big generator was released during the appearance of SN1987 in the Great magelanic clouds. What a coincedence...
Andersson's voice and talent so great... This is Muuusic from the soul...

Fragile is the best, but others are also excellent!!! If you are interested in progressive rock, don't miss any yes album. Steve Howe is so cool ~

I loved their Relayer album. The wilder sections, where they sounded too chaotic & too out of control to ever be pretentious, as they were often accused of being, just contrasted so sublimely with the lushly calm ones.
I think the absence of Rick Wakeman made all the difference to that.

I was Director of Photography for the Yes Reunion Keys to Ascension. Rick Wakeman was a complete asshole. He absolutely refused to work with us to facilitate the filming of the concert because some photographer had once inadvertently pulled out a patch. Finally I got his tech to acquiesce by creating a camera platform and entrance that was safely removed from any cords. Wakemen used his original mini moog in that show and complained furiously that he could not remember the parts. If you see the video, you'll notice that there are stacks of cheat sheets - handwritten musical notation that got him through each performance. Also, during that show I ended up getting into a squabble with Jon Anderson. I stood my ground and later was congratulated by the tour manger for doing so. "He's such a prima Dona." he said. You must realize that Yes was my favorite band in High school and I went to many concerts. Could you imagine, locking horns with your teen idol?
Chris Squire and Alan White were very affable. Steve Howe on the other hand was the consummate English gentleman. He stopped me in the hall of the hotel and apologized profusely for the band's lack of preparedness in the making of the film (which was the very issue that I had the tiff with Jon about).

Fun From CA, what you say about Wakeman doesn't surprise me in the slightest. Among Yes members, I've never really liked the guy.
