Live Performances On 3LP Set!
YES, deservedly inducted into the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame in April 2017,
release Topographic Drama - Live Across America on 3LP set. The collection
contains live performances recorded during their U.S. tour in 2016 and 2017.
Yes is among the longest lasting and most successful of the ’70s progressive
rock groups, proving to be one of the lasting success stories from that musical
genre. The band, founded in 1968, overcame a generational shift in its audience
and the departure of its most visible members at key points in its history to
reach the end of the century as the definitive progressive rock band. Where
rivals such as Emerson, Lake & Palmer withered away commercially after the
mid-’70s, and Genesis and King Crimson altered their sounds so radically as to
become unrecognizable to their original fans, Yes retained the same sound, and
performed much of the same repertoire that they were doing in 1971, and for
their trouble, found themselves being taken seriously a quarter of a century
later. Their audience remained huge because they had always attracted younger
listeners drawn to their mix of daunting virtuosity, cosmic (often mystical)
lyrics, complex musical textures, and powerful yet delicate lead vocals.
