I suppose it was in 1973 that I first listened to Yes. I borrowed Close To The Edge from a schoolmate. From then on I was hooked. The artwork was a massive bonus as I was into that too.
In 1983, I remember being delighted to hear Jon singing with the band again, and although the music was a complete departure, I really liked 90125. It reminds me well of the flat I lived in at the time, in the Montpellier area of Cheltenham.

2003 has no memory for me where Yes is concerned. I think by then I’d become tired of their regurgitations of the old material done live yet again but not as well as in the past.
