Editorial Reviews

The phenomenal success of Friday Music's YES 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl series continues with their legendary second smash album TIME AND A WORD. The fans have been requesting this title for the audiophile format for years...and Friday Music is much honored to oblige.

Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, Peter Banks, Bill Bruford and Tony Kaye created this masterpiece in 1970. The stunning musicianship partnering with the voice of Jon Anderson truly made this one of the more memorable albums from that decade.

With such concert and fan favorites like the smashes Sweet Dreams, Then, and the pivotal ballad Time And A Word, this album was not only a prog-rock pleaser, but an all around classic rock event, which has stood the test of time to this day.

Stephen Stills classic Everydays gets the five star treatment from this English quintet, plus the all time classic Yes track Astral Traveller is also featured on this stunning release.

Mastered from the original Atlantic Records tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Records with Ron McMaster, Time And A Word is a limited edition event, and now boasts this fine album with the original U.K. artwork, for the first time ever in North America...as well as a poly sleeve for the LP and a poly sleeve for the album jacket to protect your recording for years to come.

"Time And A Word" (released in 1970) was The Yes' second album and in my opinion was a better album then their debut. It clearly shows the group experimenting with different sounds. Just listen to "No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed" and "Clear Days" which utilize an orchestra. There are some great songs on this cd beginning with the above mentioned song "No Opportunity Needed...", "Then", "Sweet Dreams", and "Astral Traveller". Granted this album isn't as great as "Fragile" or "Close To The Edge", but then again they didn't have Steve Howe or Rick Wakeman. Interestingly, Howe appears on the cover of the U.S. release of "Time And A Word" but doesn't play on it. It wasn't until the next album "The Yes Album" (released in 1971) , that Howe replaced Peter Banks as guitarist. And Tony Kaye was later replaced by keyboard wizard extroardinaire, Wakeman. There are four bonus tracks included in this newly remastered cd. 1) Dear Father, 2) No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed (Original Mix), 3) Sweet Dreams (Original Mix), 4) The Prophet (Single Version), all of which are a nice addition to the regular album song listing. The sound quality of this cd is much better than the previous Joe Gastwirt remasters which had no punch. This version has more bottom end, increased midrange and pumped up output level. There's also an eight page booklet included that has some colorful pictures of the group and lyrics to the songs. This is a must for all Yes fans or those who enjoy listening to seventies progressive rock such as Emerson, Lake & palmer, King Crimson, or Genesis.

The 2nd Yes album, 1970's "Time And A Word," saw the band add some orchestral arrangements to some of their songs. Some fans were turned off by it, and even Yes themselves now say they don't think the orchestral touches on the album worked completely (and the band would not take on orchestral accompanyment again until 2001's "Magnification"). Personally, I'm not bothered one bit by the orchestral flourishes. They don't *bury* the band, for heaven's sake, and I think they enhance the songs that they're used on very well. Yes themselves are still the main attraction throughout "Time And A Word," and the album is excellent. It features several of my personal favorite Yes songs, such as the amazing cover of Richie Havens' "No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed," the captivating sounds of "Then," the perfect pop-rock of "Sweet Dreams," the supremely powerful rock of "Astral Traveller" (with a killer guitar riff from Peter Banks), and the great beauty of the closing title track. The band are in top form on "Time And A Word," as they also say goodbye to guitarist Banks, who would be replaced by longtime guitarist Steve Howe shortly after the album's release (SO shortly, in fact, that the original US album cover features a group photo with Howe, even though Banks is the guitarist on the album!). I've always loved "Time And A Word." It's a very strong Yes album, and I highly recommend it.

I always considered this to be one of Yes's most underrated efforts. The title track is a great song that is still on the band's playlist at concerts. The upbeat "Sweet Dreams" is my personal favorite. "The Prophet", "Then" and "Astral Traveller" are also excellent tracks. The new Rhino release with extra tracks is noteworthy for the bonus track "Dear Father" (formerly only available on the "Yesterdays" compilation) and the original UK only cover. This was the last album with Peter Banks, who was of course replaced by the great Steve Howe.

"Time And A Word" is one of the most underrated Yes albums, made at a time when they were still young, fresh and ready to rock. The jazz and classical influence becomes more prominent, although their sound was still formative and would fully gel on the next album, "The Yes Album". Nonetheless, there's some good stuff here and on a recent re-listen I found myself enjoying nearly every track. The obvious weak point, noted by most reviewers, is the orchestra, which is added to most of the songs and does not quite mix with the group's basic sound. This proved to be the case with all of the orchestral-rock albums released that year, a list that also included works by Deep Purple, The Nice and Pink Floyd. All of those artists would soon learn how to best express themselves through the use of a wider array of keyboards, although on "Time And A Word" the string backing works OK on the ballad "Clear Days" and the anthemic title track.
Not surprisingly, the two best songs are those without the orchestra, and they point squarely to the sound devoloped for the upcoming "Yes Album"--"Sweet Dreams" is a strong, melodic pop-rock song with an uplifting chorus, while the slightly psychedelic "Astral Traveller" features the soon-to-be trademark "cosmic" lyrics and complex instrumental interplay that would make them famous. "Astral Traveller" would even improve in live performance after Steve Howe joined the group, and is a song the band should reconsider adding to their live setlist (they have periodically reprised "Sweet Dreams" and the title track over the years).
"Time And A Word" is upbeat, positive music that stands in stark contrast to the music being made by today's youth.
