Notes:
Vocalist Jon Anderson and bassist Chris Squire formed YES in 1968, with their former bandmates guitarist Peter Banks (who came up with the name), keyboardist Tony Kaye, and drummer Bill Bruford recruited from an ad in Melody Maker.
Lester Bangs said of YES’s debut album in Rolling Stone 1970: “This is the kind of album that sometimes insinuates itself into your routine with a totally unexpected thrust of musical power. Because all of it is excellently done: brisk fuzz leads, whirring bass, a bit of the Beatles vocally, a touch of Wes Montgomery in the guitar solos—a definitive album, in fact, in the prevalent style of “hip” groups over the past two years.”

The standard red & plum UK Atlantic labels in 1969 had the artist & album title in the upper half and the producer credit, if any was given, at the very bottom, so, I do believe that this label version came first.

More than competent Psych-Rock introducing the diminutive ever present figure of Jon Anderson channelling mother divine through still yet thick Lancastrian tongue. Eee, fair bit of mediocrity through Kaye’s dumb organ amidst the bright spots of Chris Squire’s high end bass guitar and choir mouth with ruffled posh-lad Bill Bruford kickin’ the jazz. ‘I See You’ is about the 1968 equivalent of Aphex Twin remixing R.E.M where as ‘Yesterday & Today’ and ‘Sweetness’ lull you into a Hazy Jane pre-emptive flutter. All this before ‘Survival’ psyches you with a riff the experience would be envious of – ‘an egg too proud to rape, the shape of things to come’, yes? A-
