Yes have been at the forefront of the progressive rock scene for a very long time. They have produced some of the genre’s finest, not to mention excessive, moments and continue to do so with their latest album “Fly From Here”. To celebrate that album’s success Music Club Deluxe have released a double CD chronicling some of the band’s greatest works.
Kicking off with “Siberian Khatru” and following it up with the monumental “Yours Is No Disgrace”, this is prog heaven. The album has all the tracks you might expect: “Wondorous Stories”, “Owner Of A Lonely Heart”, “Ive Seen All The Good People”, “Roundabout” and so on. Over the course of the two discs, you also get the whole of the “Close To The Edge” album, which cant be a bad thing. The only unexpected move is a frankly weird acapella version of “Leave It”, originally on “90125” and, in this version, well worth hearing.
If you’re new to Yes, then this is a great place to start, and if you’re an old hand, this is the perfect compilation to stick on in the car.
