Reviewed for Coffeerooms by Mike JeffersonThe music and legacy of Yes spans forty creative, tumultuous and triumphant years. Now there’s a 2-DVD artist profile that’s as grandiose, entertaining and exhilarating as their music. You want to know which member of the group came up with the name Yes? The answer’s here, as is a detailed account of Jon Anderson’s first meeting with Chris Squire, how Tony Kaye and Steve Howe got along as roommates, and which album the band shuns like a leper in a Speedo.
The first disc alone is 204 minutes, but thanks to Chris Squire and Rick Wakeman’s glib tales and Yes historian Chris Welch’s informative comments, the interviews take less time to get through than all four sides of “Tales From Topographic Oceans.” Narrator Russ Williams, who sounds like Robin Leach’s younger brother, provides the element of upper crusty class one associates with the band’s music.
