Yes before they were Prog!!!
This song has two attributes that most Yes fans would not associate with the group;this song is both simple and short.For a band who would go on to record twenty minute,mellotron-infused suites, the sound of Jon Anderson singing to about two-and-a-half minutes of simple piano music is really interesting. Yesterday and Today, the third track on the eponymous debut album (1969),shows a young band, sure of its talent, yet unsure of its direction. (Much of this can be attributed to original guitarist Peter Banks, who seemed to envision Yes as a Cream-style jazz-rock band.) Y&T is a beautiful, relaxing fusion of Jon's high-register voice and a soft acoustic piano that made no effort to compete with the voice track. Completely unpretentious (we're taliking about YES,folks!), I highly recommend this song.
Thanks to toby for submitting the review.
