Peter Banks is a peripheral figure in the storied history of progressive rock.
A subsequent solo album, Two Sides of Peter Banks, featured Focus guitarist Jan Akkerman alongside members of Flash and Genesis, and served as something of a template for instrumental prog rock albums, notably Steve Hackett's Voyage of the Acolyte.
Banks then revived Flash, renaming it Empire, but the recordings failed to find a buyer (they were eventually released in the '90s by One Way Records).

 Peter Banks
Peter Banks began his music career in the band The Syn alongside bassist Chris Squire.
Banks was active with Yes for only the first two records, during which time they were slowly establishing their reputation; by 1970 creative differences led to his departure and he established the band Flash, producing three albums in quick succession.
By 1973 Flash had come to an end and Banks instead turned to a solo career, beginning with The Two Sides of Peter Banks released later that same year and featuring contributions from John Wetton, Steve Hackett and Phil Collins.

 Ground and Sky review - Peter Banks - Two Sides of Peter Banks
Peter Banks, electric and acoustic guitar, ARP, mini moog, Fender piano; Jan Akkerman, electric and acoustic guitar; with Ray Bennett, bass guitar; Phil Collins, drums; Steve Hackett, electric guitar; Mike Hough, drums; John Wetton, bass
Still, this is a very enjoyable album, and definitely increased my respect for Peter Banks (who, before hearing this disc, I just thought of as "the guy who was kicked out of Yes so they could hire Steve Howe").
Listening to this, I am reminded of that seemingly long-gone era of guitarists, who didn't need to rely at all on a cadre of effect boxes or studio trickery, but had a command of the instrument that can only be had by playing and playing and playing.

eter Banks was something of a pioneer among progressive rock guitarists, recording one of the earliest solo instrumental records (since a rite of passage) in Two Sides of Peter Banks.
This album, recorded while Banks was still a member of Flash, is less a statement of direction than a snapshot of his style at the time.
Two Sides of Peter Banks remains a good bet for progressive rock fans, though it’s not the missing link some have made it out to be.

Emerging from a two-decade exile from recording, Peter Banks [+] released this album of rock instrumentals.
The songs themselves, though not always especially compelling given the apparent lack of live drums, show Banks' chops still in fine form.
At least Banks has kept his sense of humor, for as his liner notes muse, "If you enjoy listening to it half as much as the enjoyment I had recording it, then I have had twice as much fun as you!" [The 1999 Transatlantic reissue includes an extra track, "Anima Mundi."]

First, I think that Peter Banks is a very underrated guitarist.
Former guitarist of Yes in their first two albums, Banks was totally eclipsed by Steve Howe at the early 70's.
Well, the prog parts looks like a primitive but wild Steve Hackett's imitation, but this is the magic of this record, the roughness of Banks when he play the guitar, specially on "The White House Vale".

It is also kind of poignant when you consider that Banks was essentially the "Pete Best" of the Yes story, and missed out on the fame and fortune that followed his tenure with the band.
