DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

YES (ABO#132)

YES
YESSENTIAL
(1968-2002)

As many bands, Yes is nearly only known for one hit single : Owner Of A Lonely Heart. Although it is not a bad song, this is really not the trademark that made them popular in the 70s. They were the front band of the Progressive landscape but, as a fashion passes by, they were rapidly called "the dinosaurs of Rock" and became a band making kitsch music (just listen to Awaken to see that this unfair etiquette is rubbish !
Then in the eighties, the Yes most people know is not really Yes. First named Cinema, that band founded by Chris Squire, Alan White and Trevor Rabin became Yes because of the adjonction of Jon Anderson and Tony Kaye. Cinema, with 4 from 5 Yes members had to become Yes. After 2 albums, Yes brang back its glorious old progressive rock habit and talent.

Surprisingly, this one was very easy to compil. But some songs miss at my deep despair.
