Overview

The album that first gave shape to the established Yes sound, built around science-fiction concepts, folk melodies, and soaring organ, guitar, and vocal showpieces. "Your Move" actually made the U.S. charts as a single, and "Starship Trooper," "Perpetual Change," and "Yours Is No Disgrace" became much-loved parts of the band's concert repertory for many tours to come. It was remastered in 1995, with significantly improved sound. Then, in January 2003, Rhino reissued The Yes Album in a newly remastered and expanded edition, with a much brighter, crisper and fuller sound, new annotation by Yes scholar Bill Martin, and three bonus tracks: The single edits of "Your Move" and the "Life Seeker" portion of "Starship Trooper," and the studio version of the Steve Howe acoustic guitar solo number "Clap." All of the music, down to the tiniest nuances of Howe's guitar work or Chris Squire's bass playing, is exposed as never before, and the vocals have greater warmth. The studio version of "Clap" is less focused and succinct than the slightly shorter live rendition from the original LP, and it contains about a minute of material that Howe removed from the piece and later explored more effectively in "Mood For A Day" off of the group's next album, so we're essentially getting a preview-after-the-fact of part of Fragile.
