It's been so long that I've listened to this, that I had almost forgotten how incredible it is...
Now go listen to Tales from Topographic Oceans, Close To The Edge, and Relayer.
We discussed this the other day on the Benavente Yahoo! group
I caught myself humming "Heart of the Sunrise" the other night out of the blue. It may have been the cool air, Yes has always been a Fall/Winter band for me...
Anyway I just pulled Fragile out after 2 or 3 years without listening to it. I replaced my flats with some Stainless Rounds as a result
Me too. Isn't that odd, how some bands and albums are seasonal?
A beautiful piece of artwork! Thankyou YES! Does anyone know what amp Chris was using for recording/touring during that era?
Fragile is an incredible album. Chris Squire is probably my favorite player. I think he was using SUNN amps back then but I'm not sure.
I am not sure what he used on that record, but I do remember him saying that he often recorded through guitar amps/cabs in those days.
It's the opposite for me, Yes has always been a summer band for me. Probably because of back in the summer of '89 when I bought most of the Yes catalog within a 2-week span.
I think I might have to go pick up a remastered copy of Fragile, the one I have is kinda old and dodgy (probably the first release of Fragile on CD), like they didn't do a good job mastering it for CD (some digital distortion/clipping here and there, watch those meters guys!)
Fall 1982... I was listening to some Rush on my walkman in Drafting class my Freshman year. The local "Keyboardist" (a senior) overheard and said they only 'wished' they could be Yes.
He copied me Fragile and Tormato to cassette from his LP... I bought most everything they'd released on LP within the next 2 months.
YES is great. It's has also been quite some time since I've gave a good listen to Yes.
When I was in college back in 1976 the two albums I really shedded on (besides the funk stuff) were Stanley Clarke's first solo album and "Close to the Edge". Of course I never had anyone to play any of that stuff with. At the time these represented the epitome of bassplaying to me (besides whoever that guy was on the Motown stuff
Me, too! With the possible exception of 90125, which is a Summertime album for me.
I'm not trying to hijack the thread, but two other albums from that era that are classics for my Autumn listening are from Genesis: Trick of The Tail and Wind and Wuthering.
Fish Out of Water is a terrific piece of work, too.
Squire is amazing. And I always liked Trevor Rabin, too ...
Don't get me started talking about Yes ... I'll go on for hours!
"Heart of the Sunrise" is my favorite Yes song.
Stanley's first solo album was Children Of Forever...mostly URB & pretty forgetable.
Wasn't Fragile just re-issued?
True. I meant this one:
I've been humming "Heart of the Sunrise" ALL weekend long. My wife catches me every so often & looks at me like I'm nuts! SHARP! DISTANCE!
Definately one of my favorites too. The opening was one of the first Squire attempts.
I think "South Side of the Sky" is my all time favorite Yes tune... but there are so many great ones
i was paid an excellent compliment by two seperate individuals - they said that when they heard my band's cd it reminded them of the first time they heard fragile.
