The Classic Rock Album this week was the magnificent and seminal progressive rock album from Yes - the Yes Album (1971). Their first LP with Steve Howe on guitar, this album saw the Yes sound fully-formed. It's one of their finest albums, and contains many of their most beloved songs. We had a blast listening to it again!
From later that year, here's the first part of the BBC 'Sounding Out' documentary on Yes. You'll notice that Kaye is out of the keyboard stool and Wakeman is in (without a stool, incidentally) solidifying the line up of what, for many, is 'Classic Yes'.
Here's the rest of the Show. Some great requests this week, I recall. Keep them coming, throughout the week to firstname.lastname@example.org or during the broadcast of the show, by calling us at 404-894-2468.
