The anniversary journey continues for the pioneers of Progressive Rock and fans will finally get what they have been asking for, a Yes DVD featuring the classic band line up with narration by The WhoGÇÖs Roger Daltry. The 3-hour film, shot in Europe during the recent 35th anniversary year, includes intimate and humorous observations into their music, their life on the road, and their own personal viewpoints. YES have rocked the world for 35 years, they were the pioneers of progressive rock. A Grammy award winning band YES sold in excess of 35 million albums. Five individual virtuosos that make up one of the greatest rock bands in history. YES is a band that continue to grow stronger and play sell out tours, worldwide year after year.
Shot during the group's 35th anniversary European tour, Yesspeak offers a 169-minute documentary about the classic progressive rock band Yes, together with an audio-only presentation of their 2003 set. The feature, narrated by Roger Daltrey, is a refreshingly straightforward affair, with a near three-hour running time allowing rather more depth than the usual rockumentary. Divided into 10 chapters, the program systematically covers the background, history, and outlook of the group before an extended interview with each of the five members of the classic lineup: Jon Anderson (vocals), Steve Howe (guitar), Chris Squire (bass), Alan White (drums), and Rick Wakeman (keys). Finally there are more general sections on touring and the band's music. Archive material and glimpses of the 2003 tour are interwoven with the interviews, but this is very much a documentary, not a concert (to see Yes at their modern best, watch Yes: Symphonic Live, 2002).
The documentary puts a positive spin on a sometimes checkered past, and it's clearly aimed at long-term fans, but for those who have followed Yes through the decades this is satisfyingly comprehensive and thoroughly enjoyable; from Steve Howe's famous but still entertaining guitar/Concord story, to Rick Wakeman's tea break during a typically expansive solo. --Gary S. Dalkin
