Yes: The Yes Album (Day 80 of Albums: 365 Mkll)


(Connection to previous album: Tony Kaye was uncredited for keyboard parts on 'Pyromania'. He was the keyboard player on 'The Yes Album'.)

'The Yes Album' is a top 15 all-time record for me.  It's my favorite album from Yes (edging out 90125 by a snatch hair).  It's groundbreaking, a personal memory capsule and a GREAT prog album.  I love memories of my uncle Bill and me cranking this on road trips. 

Tony Kaye is an underrated keyboard player.  I love this record and play it several times a year.  God bless Chris Squire.
