Much later than that-closer to WWII.
A fine album though-one of my very favourites, and the big three tracks have been mainstays of his live set ever since.

If you liked this one Josh, then I'd advise Defector as your next step rather than Acolyte
The Yes Reduxed Mp3 set now available in the usual place, should you want one.

Defector is inferior to SM imho. I’d stick with Acolyte, or Please Don’t Touch, or his last two are pretty good.
Most of his albums are worthwhile, except Cured, Blues With A Feeling.
It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.

Defector is the next logical step after Spectral Mornings,as it was made with virtually the same band. It isn't as good,as nothing he did is, but its not bad. Acolyte is much more Genesis-y, and PDT is a hodge podge. A lovely hodge-podge though, with some excellent guest vocals. All four are very listenable, and the Legacy version of Defector has a good ( but ubiquitous) live set from Reading 81.

Too late - heard Acolyte this morning. It is good, though I preferred SM. Shall try Defector next (after another play of SM). Thanks.

The full version is better with a much more satisfying and natural finish to the track. It a bonus on reissues but should have been adopted for the album

Acolyte is very arcane and baroque next to SM.
I've had it for 40 years and have never really got to grips with it
Defector is a similar record to SM.
Which is why I suggested it.

I am always correct
