New Numbered Edition and Mini-LP Style Packaging
Includes Familiar Hits "I've Seen All Good People" and "Starship Trooper"
The key components to every great prog-rock album comprise memorable guitar riffs, punchy immediacy that draws you into the song, ample rhythmic kick, and the imaginative capacity to transport the listener to a place well beyond the confines of reality. Yesâ€™ The Yes Album features all of these rare qualities and more, the 1971 record as significant for saving the bandâ€™s career as well as for establishing new parameters in virtuosic technicality and skilled composition. The first set recorded with guitarist Steve Howe, it remains Yesâ€™ grandest achievement and claims a musical vision the British quintetâ€™s contemporaries struggled to match.
Combined with Squireâ€™s flexible bass lines, Howeâ€™s inventive solos and acoustic tuckpointing, Brufordâ€™s restrained thunder, and Jon Andersenâ€™s poetic words, and it seems inevitable that The Yes Album couldâ€™ve been anything other than a smash success. The recordâ€™s memorable â€œIâ€™ve Seen All Good People,â€ politically savvy â€œYours Is No Disgrace,â€ and epic â€œStarship Trooperâ€ still orbit todayâ€™s radio playlists and sports stadiums.
While previous remastered versions restored some of the life missing from early editions, they donâ€™t go far enough. Mobile Fidelityâ€™s 24K Gold CD of The Yes Album goes the distance. Rest assured that this numbered edition collectable takes its position as the most definitive-sounding Yes document on the market. Sourced from the original master tapes, the bandâ€™s soaring instrumental passages, engaging folk melodies, airy vocal harmonies, and breathy organ accents come across with incredible liveliness and intimately textured three-dimensional quality. This is one rock classic no music lover will want to be without.
