June 24, , Morges, Switzerland , formerly of the progressive rock trio Refugee, had replaced Wakeman. Meanwhile, in the absence of new Yes albums, other bands began trying to capitalize on the Yes sound by creating their own versions of such: the most notable of these were Starcastle, a progressive rock band signed by Epic Records, who made their recording debut in with a self-titled album that could have been another incarnation of Yes; and Fireballet, a Passport Records quartet who seemed to bridge the music of Yes and ELP.
The band announced that each member of the group would release a solo album. Virtually a lost Yes album, it saw the bassist exploring new instrumental and orchestral textures, and turning in a lead vocal performance as well. Anderson performed the entire album himself, demonstrating his growth as a multi-instrumentalist.
In late the band reconvened to begin work on a new studio album, but soon after, the line-up changed once again, as Patrick Moraz departed and Rick Wakeman announced his return to the fold. The long-player topped the British charts for two weeks and reached number eight on the American charts. Trevor Horn found the strain of replacing Jon Anderson live hugely challenging and his experience was part of what pushed him into a new focus on record production.
The band announced its break up in early , not long after Atlantic Records released Yesshows, a double live album made up of stage performances dating from through that reached number 22 in England and number 43 in America. Also in , there had been an abortive attempt at a supergroup consisting of Jimmy Page on guitar, Chris Squire on bass, and Alan White manning the drumkit; the band was to be called XYZ which stood for ex-Yes and ex- Zeppelin.
For a year and a half, Yes seemed a dead issue. With original Yes member Tony Kaye joining on keyboards and Trevor Horn involved in a producing capacity, the new group was announced under the name, Cinema. The connection to Yes was apparent and the band even planned to play some Yes material during its live shows.
But then fate intervened. Having run into each other at a party, Squire shared some of the new Cinema material with Jon Anderson. But the ongoing line-up changes were not over—before the album was released, Kaye left and was briefly replaced by Eddie Jobson, who had worked with Bill Bruford in the group, UK. In late , that single was released. After a lengthy tour, including headlining a Rock in Rio show in in front of a six-figure audience, Yes began work on their next album, initially with Horn again producing, although he was to depart before its completion.
The release of Big Generator , came in late , with the album selling moderately well. Inspired by the idea of getting the Fragile line-up back together, he teamed with three other former Yesmen. The accompanying tour allowed the mega-band to showcase music from its two previous incarnations, and had solo spots for nearly every member.
The s were busy years for the members of Yes, if not always in a group context. Squire and Sherwood would eventually release an album based on the same material in , entitled Conspiracy, with White guesting. Released two years later was the Yes tribute album, Tales from Yesterday, notable for including appearances by several band members across various tracks, namely Steve Howe, Peter Banks, Patrick Moraz and Billy Sherwood. The line-up from and Big Generator were to re-emerge, namely Rabin, Squire, Anderson, White and Kaye and supplemented by Sherwood , with the album Talk and subsequent tour.
Following the tour, Kaye left the music business for more than a decade. Rabin also decided to leave, moving to a successful career in film scoring.
Sherwood, who had been producing for the band, joined as an official member, taking over keyboards and sharing guitar duties. We've included a bonus LP to the original package, with early versions of other songs, previously not included on the album.
