from the bruford files...



It’s hard to overstate the influence of the Beatles in the life of any British band that followed them in the late 60s into the 70s. You have to see this clip in the context of the Beatles movie HELP, crossed with all those Benny Hill sketches involving sped up chases of nurses or nuns. The Beatles had opened doors that most popular musicians didn’t know existed - in style, fashion, visuals, movies and music. They offered a blueprint, a template, a kicking-off board for bands like Yes. We took as much as we could and ran with it. I’m pretty sure the canal scenes at the beginning and end are in Bruges, Belgium, the Venice of the north.

Did Wakeman replay the introduction? 

Was not impressed the first time I listened to Going for the One album.   Maybe I should give this song and others a careful re-listen?

Perhaps the Steven Wilson re-mix is worth a spin?



IMHO, their best includes
Close to the Edge
Relayer
Going for the One
Drama
Fragile

I really really love most of Tormato. Just imagine it as the second disc of Going for the One and it immediately sounds better. In fact, it's got Release, Release on it!

Relayer.  Best album Yes ever put out.

If I am in the truck by myself, Yes Relayer and a bunch of King Crimson albums get played.

one of my favorite yes tunes...

We go sailing down the calming streams
Drifting endlessly by the bridge
To be over
We will see
To be over

Do not suffer through the game of chance that plays
Always doors to lock away your dreams
Think it over
Time will heal your fear
Think it over
Balance the thoughts that release within you

Childlike soul dreamer one journey
One to seek and see in every light do open
True pathways away

Carrying closer go gently
Holding doors will open every way
You wander true pathways away

After all your soul will still surrender
After all don't doubt your part
Be ready to be loved
