Just say yes


“Yes”   Yes   Atlantic Records   Debut outing from 1969.   “Progressive Rock” is born.       Lester Bangs favorably reviewed the album in Rolling Stone, writing that it was “the kind of album that sometimes insinuates itself into your routine with a totally unexpected thrust of musical power.”   (Led Zeppelin’s first, also on Atlantic, came out earlier that same year.)   Jon Anderson: vocals;   Chris Squire: bass and vocals;   Peter Banks: guitars and vocals;   Tony Kaye: keyboards;   Bill Bruford: drums .
