Originally released in 2001, “Magnification” marked a change in the band’s approach to music. Rather than performing with a keyboard player, as had been custom, the band (Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, Steve Howe, and Alan White) enlisted the help of Conductor Larry Groupe to put together orchestrations. What had been a preconceived notion was now a reality: Yes wrote great music that could work with an orchestra. “Magnification” is the confirmation of this thought.
Yes has been one of the longest lasting and successful progressive rock groups of the 1970s. Still drawing large audiences to their concerts, Yes continues to attract younger listeners who are drawn to their virtuosity, complex musical textures and powerful vocals. The following reissues will be available from Eagle:
2. Spirit of Survival
3. Don’t Go
4. Give Love Each Day
5. Can You Imagine
6. We Agree
7. Soft As A Dove
9. In The Presence of: Deeper / Death of Ego / True Beginner / Turn Around…
10. This Is Time
Yes' Magnification was originally released as a single CD in 2001.
