Yes. . . the progressive rock group! Been around since the around 1969! In my eyes (ears). . . the produce GREAT
progressive-rock (art rock) music!
Just recently found out that they're on tour? Heck, I didn't even know that they were even still together! Heck, even Rick Wakeman is playing with them again! I'm psyched!!! Saw them in concert, but that was YEARS ago!!! Thought they disbanded many moons ago. . .go figure!
Anyone going to see/hear their concert(s)?!?!? I just visited one of their web-sites! Hope to go seem them this weekend down in Philadelphia, PA!!! Got to talk to Amy about his one, though. Tickets are up to $75.00 a piece!
Well worth the money, though.
Just just write and play great music!
Oh yea. . . I'm at work. Both of my patients are safely and soundly sleeping with their hearts-a-beating. . .
. . . and I'm planning my next "Yes" concert!!
P. S. To find our more about "Yes", you can visit http://www.yesworld.com
Some familiar songs are:
"Owner of a Lonely Heart"
"It Can Happen"
"I've Seen All Good People"

Stargazer - Yep, their concerts can be boring from a rock-theatrical performance point of view. But there is no denying their musicianship. They're probably one of those bands that are best heard on CD's rather than live concerts. (Steely Dan is also another band that's best heard from their albums verses their live concerts . . . in fact, until recently, Steely Dan never performed live concerts!) But boy, does "Yes" play sooooooooo well!
To me, it's just so refreshing to hear their well thought out, well composed, well arranged, and well performed music. Their art work is cool too!
(I guess I'm just a big "Yes" fan! I'm soooo excited that they're playing again . . . and that I might see them this week-end. . . money willing!)
Jenny P - Unfortunately, I don't think they have any sound clips on their web site. Don't know why they don't post clips of their music. Maybe other site do, though. Oh well. . .

Remember them - yes - like them - they were OK - must admit liked Rick Wakeman better - Was more into other music by then including Leonard Cohen and Mickey Newbury (Who sadly Died recently) as well as Ben E King and then there were quite a few groups and more heavier sounding people such as the group who made fire (cant remeber their name) - Loved Moody Blues too. - A CD l play all the time is in the car -
My main memory of the group (YES) is a very old boyfirend l was going out with about 1974 gave me their LP - called YES for Christmas - because l always said No. Might add I got a laugh out of it and thats all he got too.!!!!
Cheers - (I am really starting to show my age - l can remeber when and where l was when the beatles toured here and l got to touch their car and wave to them as they drove through the main st into the city - WOW.)
