Hi Lifeseeker smiley - smiley

I'm subbing your entry at the moment, and I've a question or two for you.

In the 'Changes' section, you say that 'The instrumental track 'Cinema' was voted best instrumental of the year' - Who gave this award? Who voted? What year?

At the end of this section, you say 'Yes again split' - When?

In the list of albums at the end, you give years for the live albums, but none of the others. Would you mind if these were removed?

smiley - cheers

Hi Archangel etc.! smiley - smiley

Yes were given a Grammy award in Feb. 1985 for "Cinema". It was for "Best Rock Instrumental Performance"

The band split after the Big Generator promotional tour in mid-1988.
I hadn't realised, but that album actually did better than I had thought - it stayed high in the UK charts (no.17) for 5 weeks and sold over a million copies. It just didn't match the great success of 90125, that's all.

Regarding the album dates, I would prefer to include dates for all the albums if possible (unless you insist!)

They are as follows:

Yes 1969
Time and a Word 1970
The Yes Album (R) 1971
Fragile (R) 1971
Close to the Edge (R) 1972
Tales from Topographic Oceans 1973
Relayer (R) 1974
Going for the One (R) 1977
Tormato 1978
Drama 1980
90125 (R) 1983
Big Generator 1987
Union 1991
Talk (R) 1994
Keys to Ascension 1 1996
Keys to Ascension 2 1997
Open Your Eyes 1997
The Ladder (R) 1999
Keystudio 2001
Magnification (R) 2001


The Compilations release dates are pretty meaningless as some late releases contain very early material.


Happy subbing...

Correction: smiley - headhurts I just checked the Grammys website. According to this the award was given in 1984. The presentation to the band was in Feb 85 though.

Let's say 1984 to keep all "Grammy award researchers" happy. smiley - smiley

I have a minor change that I'd be grateful if you included:

In the "Keys to the future" section:
'....permeated powerfully by Anderson's vision and optimism....

Change to ...Anderson/Squire's vision and optimism...

(Apparently much of that album was written by Squire so it's only fair to include his name here).

Thanks
