Re: Procol Harum versus Yes!

Yes. They are, for me, one of my top 5 bands. Their form of prog appeals way more to me. 'The Yes Album', 'Fragile' and 'Close to the Edge' had me hooked. Then they changed personnel and tailed off a bit. But they would come back strong from time to time. Anderson, Howe, Squire, Wakeman and Bruford were a tough act to follow. It doesn't hurt when you have an album ('Close to the Edge') which in many circles is considered the best progressive album ever released.

Exclamation Re: Procol Harum versus Yes!

I've disliked Yes ever since I first heard their early releases such as Your Move and Roundabout. Tracking these cuts down on Youtube for the purposes of this thread simply reminded me why I don't like them.



Procol Harum though appealed to me right from the start. Here's another early release of theirs I really like:

Any one reason in particular for the dislike? How about this song? I used the cut down (single) version here. I think it's better than the long version.

I've given a bit of thought to that question over the last few days. I therefore listened to an assortment of early Yes releases to determine what put me off their music from the start. The main reason is that the vocals annoyed me - and still do. But the instrumentals don't draw me into the tracks either.
