  Yes (band) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yes was formed in 1968 by vocalist Jon Anderson and bassist Chris Squire.
The group's emerging style coalesced on their next LP, the critically acclaimed The Yes Album, which for the first time consisted entirely of original compositions by the band; it was also the record that united them with long-serving producer and engineer Eddie Offord, whose studio expertise was a key factor in creating the Yes sound.
Yes also scored significant hit singles with "Leave It" and "It Can Happen," also garnering a Grammy award for Best Rock Instrumental ("Cinema," a short, highly compressed and complex track recorded live in the studio), suggesting that the group had not totally abandoned their musicianship in favor of commercial success -- as some fans allege.

 Man, Verse, Woman: Sally Potter's "Yes"
Until that point, "Yes" is immersed in the desperate passion of two people grasping the lifeline of erotic love as a placebo for much deeper emotional needs, and it's in this section of the film that Potter's flair for movement fully surfaces.
Throughout, "Yes" portrays life from the particular to the universal, from duelling organisms in a petri dish (and sloughed cells on a bedsheet) to the enormity of war itself.
Moving from London to Belfast to Beirut to Havana, "Yes" is an ambitious and lyrical argument for tolerance and self-awareness.

 Yes
The Yes discography would be fairly straightforward if it weren't for the band's incessant personnel changes, with only Anderson and Squire being nearly constant elements (Yes and Crimson traded or nearly traded band members several times).
A major sidelight to the Yes story is the solo career of Rick Wakeman, who vied with Keith Emerson for the title of hottest 70s prog rock keyboard player, and sold almost as many records as Yes did during his mid-70s commercial peak.
Yes' big "comeback" record, it features their only American #1 hit single ever: the thoroughly mushy and annoying up-tempo harmony-fest "Owner Of A Lonely Heart." The funky follow-up single "Leave It" also hit the Top 40, and "It Can Happen" was all over the airwaves.

 Yes
Yes were a fine little prog rock band that pretty much defined the genre: they might not have been its immediate fathers (this honour still falls to King Crimson), but they really came to epithomize it par excellence, with their erratic and lengthy song structures, spacey meaningless lyrics, superprofessional instrumentation and a heavy classical influence.
For the most part, Yes faithfully reproduced the originals on stage, and like most progressive bands at the time, their main aim was to impress the audience and plunge them into a more 'realistic' landscape of sound than could be achieved through the usual turntable or tape deck.
Someone in the Yes camp had probably spent quite a lot of time listening to and digesting the recent Genesis releases, because it's obvious they were desperately searching for a contemporary update of their sound.
