Liner Notes

"At the beginning of 1969, I was asked as were all Melody Maker writers to pick two groups who I thought would make it in the following year.

One of my choices was Led Zeppelin. A bit obvious perhaps, but then we all like to back a winner occasionally.

The other was Yes. I'd just heard them in a London discotheque where all too often the groups tend to be over-amplified and under-talented. Yes were not. They had much more than the usual wall-paper music sound. There was life, virility and musicianship in their approach. They had a superior vocal sound - assured, clear and harmonic. They knew what they were doing and did it with style. It showed in their own songs and imaginative arrangements. It all shows on this, their first album.

So Yes became my other choice. My second runner in the Great Group-Most-Likely-To-Make-It Stakes and my money is on them! Naturally I've watched them with special interest - at the Marquee, the Speakeasy, in concert with Janis Joplin and Cream. Totally convinced after these events, my choice is confirmed.

Tony Wilson, Melody Maker"

YES thank John Anthony, Jack Barrie, John Gee and John Roberts for their encouragement.
