Overview

"The Extraordinary World Of Yes celebrates the stunning achievements of Yes as one of the greatest bands in the history of rock and places some important sign posts along the road towards a better understanding of the mastery behind its amazing music. The central theme in The Extraordinary World Of Yes is to address the implicit question: What makes Yes so outstanding and what is it that is truly significant about the band and its music?

One of the aims along the way is to highlight the positive and often profound messages to be found in the substantial musical output of Yes over a career that has lasted more than thirty-five years and is still flourishing. What are great Yes songs such as ""Roundabout"", ""Yours Is No Disgrace"" and ""Close To The Edge"" really about? How did Yes go about creating such classic music and what are the keys to appreciating and understanding it?

These questions and many more are answered in The Extraordinary World Of Yes, backed up with quotes from the members of Yes themselves in an unfolding sequence focusing on the exceptional Yes musicians, the fascinating Yes history, the remarkable Yes music and the brilliant Yes concerts."

Alan Farley's book is thoroughly researched and superbly written. It tells of the YES band's conception and of the fascinating journey and evolution that followed. The many quotes and excerpts provide a personal touch not offered to my knowledge by any other. This makes the book truly unique. Every YES fan will discover previously little known facts. It is a must buy for buffs and historians of rock music as well.
