Yes, Fox Theatre
The Yes Album is widely considered to be the band's breakthrough album. Certified platinum, it features such signature songs as "Yours Is No Disgrace" and "I've Seen All Good People." The band's album Close To The Edge was on the U.S. charts for 32 weeks, peaking at #3. A Rolling Stone review, which features the epic suites "Close To The Edge" and "You And I," noted, "Yes' colors are subtle, almost imperceptible tints, but the main strokes are bold and thick, applied with sureness and natural instinct." Going For The One, described by Allmusic.com as "perhaps the most overlooked item in the Yes catalog," went gold, hit #8 on the U.S. chart and featured two singles, "Wonderous Stories" (which hit #6) and the title track (#24).
"I think the 12-inch album is alive and well as reinforced by the rising interest in the analog format," says SQUIRE when asked about the album format in the singles-driven digital age. The album, says HOWE, "has never totally gone away--there are those who completely understand."
Founded in 1968 by Jon Anderson and Chris Squire, Grammy-award winning recording artists Yes have created some of the most important and influential music in rock history, such as iconic pieces "Roundabout," "Close to the Edge," "I've Seen All Good People," "Owner of a Lonely Heart," and countless others. Having sold tens of millions of records over its four-decade career, Yes continues creating masterful music that inspires fans and musicians from around the world.
