Customer Reviews

Not as good as say "the Yes album" or fragile.
Greg Stossel
The remastering has given this CD a much better sound than the earlier CD's and well worth purchasing even if you have the original CD.
Banshee Rydr
One word can only describe what my ears heard with the opening bass-line of "Beyond and Before"...WOW!

"Yes" is the original debut album from Yes not to be confused with "The Yes Album," which was their third album but the first one with which most people would be familiar. "Yes" is not as strong an album, but it is a lot better than you would expect given the level of performance excellent you expect from the group down the road, especially since at this point you have Peter Banks on guitar and Tony Kaye doing the assorted keyboard work. Most of the songs are written by vocalist Jon Anderson and bass player Chris Squire, along with covers of songs by Lennon & McCartney ("Every Little Thing") and Crosby & McQuinn ("I See You"). It is rather strange to thing of the Beatle and the Byrds being major influences on Yes, but there you go. This is an album for lifelong fans of the group to check out, now that it has been reissued. Knowing where the Yes sound ends up, you can hear it in embryonic form, most notably on "Harold Land," which most anticipates the multi-part suites that would consume an entire record side on the group's best albums. However, when you hear the driving sound of the opening cut, "Beyond and Before," you will wonder who you are listening to. Banks does some interesting guitar work on both of the cover songs, especially the atypical version of the Beatles song.

This 2003 reissue is impressive because the bonus tracks add up to more playing time than the 8 original tracks on the album. The informative liner notes are from Mike Tiano. There early and finished versions of three songs, including "Something's Coming" from "West Side Story," which particularly fits Anderson's distinctive vocal style (you will be reminded of Yes' later cover of Simon & Garfunkle's "America").

Other reviews of this album have pegged it as sort of an embryonic precursor of things to come from Yes. I suppose that's fair--but for my money, that is one of the beautiful things about the album: The sweet vocals, catchy melodies and potent Squire_Bruford rhythm section don't get buried behind overly complex arrangements, synthesizers or too many chords in too few seconds. It's fair to call this a pop album with a progressive edge, and this reissue not only brings it out in crisp sound quality gloriously superior to the 1994 Atlantic reissue, but also boasts six bonus tracks (two versions of each of three songs.) Both versions of Stephen Stills' "Everydays" are superior to the "Time & A Word" album version (not to mention miles ahead of the Buffalo Springfield original), and both versions of "Dear Father" have a driving, urgent quality absent from the version previously available on "Yesterdays," and now on the reissue of the above-mentioned second Yes album. About the only disappointing thing I can come up with regarding this cd is: I had hoped when I learned it was being expanded and remastered that one of the bonus cuts would be the "Yesterdays" remix of "Survival," which features some pretty psychedelic phasing on the choruses. That aside, I could not recommend this product any more highly for fans of late Sixties-early Seventies British progressive pop/rock. _I love it; think I'm going to throw it on again right now.

Having discovered Yes's music in the second half of 1996, and have been a Yesfan since then, there's no doubt that admist all the other prog-rock bands I've listened to from then until present day, no other seems to quite match the expansiveness and unique style of Yes.
Having owned the mid '90s Atlantic remaster for a long time now, and knowing how most of Rhino's remastering makes a lot of these old albums sound fresh again, as well as the bonus tracks (which are nothing new, but still a worthy listening) were my enticements to snatch up this, the first Elektra/Rhino reissue of the Yes catalog.
One word can only describe what my ears heard with the opening bass-line of "Beyond and Before"...WOW! The remastering really has bought more warmth to the mid range, more depth into the low-end, and more crispness into the high-end EQ's. My main gripe with the old remaster from Atlantic was that it was way too muddy and there just wasn't that 'warmth' in Jon Anderson's vocals. Also it seems they've done their best in cleaning up alot of the tape hum / hiss noise that usually is a problem with old albums. It's still here (to an extent), but what can you expect from a 1969 issuing? They got around this well.
As for the bonus tracks, they are nothing new. Everyone's heard, by now, these versions of "Dear Father', "Everydays' and "Something's Coming". However, these versions are much, much better sounding than what you hear on the BBC Recordings double-CD set released several times over in 1998-1999. This is not saying I have anything against that compilation..it still gives one an idea of how Yes performed in a live setting back then, plus those tapes were badly deteriorated. The first versions of this trio of songs have the same quality as the rest of the original LP this CD contains.

I just bought this CD last night, and spent the rest of night listening to the disc over and over again. I've already had the previous Atlantic remasters, but this 2003 release really stands out! The opening "Beyond & Before" got me immediately hooked, with clearer bass and vocals, fresher drums sounds. It definitely puts the album several years forward - it adds new "environment", a lot fresher. "Survival" really kicks out Squire bass - and Anderson vocals has more distinctive "feel" (so you can "feel the sound" :-)), in short, it sounds even better than the version that opens the "Highlights" album several years back.
To be honest, this album used to be the one that I rarely listened to, despite claiming myself as Yes-fans for years. This release, however, refresh me so much that I begin to really listen to the whole albums (Survival and B&B used to be the songs that I like from the album).
The extras are also worth to get.
Now, let's hope Rhino will continue the remaster release - with CTTE, TFTO, Relayer, GFTO and Tormato...who knows what we'll get...20 minutes CTTE over the 18 minutes version?
