    Yep, same Bon Scott.

    He toured the UK in the early 70's with Fraternity (who were a big band in Oz at the time), doing proggy stuff but got nowhere and the band returned to Oz broke up and then Bon (shaven his beard) joined AC/DC and the rest is history...........

    You might try entering the info you've got on the record in the Discogs database and see if yours is registered there. If so you can find out what it does in the marketplace. But maybe you knew this already....

    I bought Tales from Topographic Oceans when I was 16 years old or so but never could really get into it, although I love a lot of what Yes did on other albums. So I think I sold it or gave it away. Should I be sorry?

    Here's a remastered version that sounds much crispier than what I remember from days long gone.

    I really loved Tales by Yes as a teenager, and liked it throughout my life....I don't go back that often to everything I've heard many times, except for a few things. Tales is good to hear a bit of now and then for me.

    I never cared much for it either.

    Same, I think Closer to the Edge sounds dated also but am a big fan of the Yes Album which I love......... Starship Trooper and I've seen All Good People etc

    Classical music fans feeling something sounds dated. Now that's going to be tough to explain to the non-fan.

    Great point!

    A great composition, remains a great composition, no matter how much time passes. And I believe Close to the Edge is a great composition.

    The only thing that might sound dated, are the instruments, like the vintage analog synths.

    True but for some reason the Yes Album sounds more timeless (less dated) to me................

    Hey, that's nice, opinions differ. Never a dull moment on TC, ha ha.

    I think I at least like Tales much more now than I used to maybe in part because of the much better sound on the remastered version, although it doesn't have the wonderful lyricism of Close to the Edge. I also like Starship Trooper and All Good People by the way.

    Close To The Edge still sounds good to me. The music that is. Anderson's lyrics are another story. To my ears, Fragile is their best sounding record. It still sounds the same to me as it did when I first listened to it in 1976.

    And I'll go with Relayer as their best recording.


    The middle, almost chaotic section, is killer. But that beautiful ending "Soon" section, resolving the middle intense section, gets me every time.

    I'll vote "Awaken" their best single piece (if you can call it that). Kind of multiple orgasmic in a cosmic sort of way. I think Anderson feels it was their best too.
