Good afternoon/evening!

I raise my glass to wish you good health and happiness, also to toast absent friends.

Not heard this before.




My goodness, it sounds like Yes - the vocals too. Have I been crediting Anderson too much - does Squire sing many Yessongs?

Great tubs from the easily recognisable Bill Bruford - what a master he is?

I love the many twists and turns on this album - absolutely delightful

'Tis good - the bass on Yes albums is consistently excellent.

A school chum of mine, a huge Yes fan stated that Squire was the most essential & important member of the band - this would have been '73 - '77. He's a dentist now.

Indeed. Have been enjoying BLUE Nights recently, sadly usually on headphones as my wife fails to hear its charms.

The brass/reeds throughout are just incredible - they add so much (and strings)
