Fragile is probably the 'primer'. :smoke:

Fragile is great! I'd say its heavy on keys as many Yes albums are. Relayer is my fav, cuz it has my fav Steve Howe playing on it - Sound Chaser.
If I had to pick an overall best for starters, I'd say The Yes Album. You probably know All Good People and would at least recognize Starship Trooper. Yours is No Disgrace, Perpetual Change and A Venture have been favorites for decades for me.
Lastly, it has The Clap, Steve Howe's signature piece.
This tour isn't a must-see. Who knows if there will ever be another must-see Yes tour, but we do get Steve Howe, Chris Squire and Alan White together, which is plenty good enough for me.

Thanx RK and PIB. The tour sounds like any Stones tour.You never know when they'll come around again.
First things first though,so,The Yes Album 1st and or Fragile? Decisions,decisions.I'm more a guitar orienated rock listener,would that make a difference on poppin my Yes cherry as to which album I should start with and which one has Steve Howe's signiture piece on it? Is that The Yes Album or another?
:D
Edit: If you can't tell FZ's The Clap from all other music,what the heck are you doing here! Haha! :lol:

Yes's (Steve Howe's, not FZ's) The Clap is an awesome instrumental, imo. Solo guitar, catchy rhythm, happy-go-lucky melody, high on the instantly-likeable scale.
Go listen to both The Yes Album and Fragile. There's no reason not to.

Listened to The Yes Album all the way through.I liked it,but that ain't Rock and it's not Roll it's ....white boy music! Lotza treble! Half way through I put on headphones and that was a lot better.I think it's the singer and not the songs.That guy's voice really stands out and makes a few songs better.But not all the time.It was rather distracting at some points.Liked the whole and give it 3 outta 5 stars.Now on to Fragile.

I probably just lost some allies here,but I likes some greasy bass in my music! 8) :mrgreen:

Yours! You always stick up for the old disco stuff.Ya must of been a LA rollerblader. Bet you used to in line skate too.Big disco ball 'n stuff! Ha! Do a little dance,make a little love,get down tonight,eh bro'? LoL

YES,to me,doesn't like or play the low brown notes.I still like them though.The compositions are great,I'd prefer Ray White,NMB,Bob Seagar to sing 'em is all,the guy that sings on The Yes Album sounds like Neil Young on helium.I had to put on the headphones 'cause of all the cats coming over!
You mean that Crapdetector,right Plook? :wink: :mrgreen:

Yes played in LA two weeks ago. All I was curious about was the song A Venture. It sound good.

http://youtu.be/1WYUsdxWa6c

Can't believe Steve Howe ditched his dual Fender Twins for a Line - 6. I think he's lost some tone there.

Prince just announced a West Coast tour where he's going to be playing 2 night stands w/ 2 shows per night in intimate venues...

Image

...I'd love to go to all 4 shows here, but I just know it's going to be too expensive. We'll know for sure next week when there are more details...


Apart from that, so far it's only:

July 26 ~ Rush, Rogers Arena

Yeah, I had them on vinyl, so I know how good they are!
Will be interested in hearing the new remasters
When Yes came to Oz recently they had a new singer
I heard Jon had lost his voice but it musta got better!

Yes was always a band that I knew (since the late '70's) had a great reputation, and I liked what I heard for the most part but still really never got into them. Kinda like Rush though I've listened to more Rush over the last 10 years than the previous 25. I had Fragile and 90125 (which may not even qualify to hard core fans). I guess I just couldn't relate to Yes like I could to Zappa, Tull, Stones, Rundgren, etc. To each their own.

I thought I'd give them a fair try. But your right KU, Yes and Rush never really thrilled me that much. Good musicians and all, they just don't have that goose bump, kick ass that Jeff Beck, Stones, SRV, Buddy Guy, even Alice Cooper kinda' rock does for me. Then there's FZ and no one else can touch him. For me it's like the Steve Miller Band, or Eddie Money, or Journey, they just don't do it for me. Never did, never will. The wow fun factor or something like that is missing for me. I can see why people love them though. Just a matter of taste I suppose. :|
