|Founded in 1968, overcame a generational shift in its audience and the departure of its most visible members at key points in its history to reach the end of the century as the definitive progressive rock band. Where rivals withered away commercially after the mid-'70s, Yes retained their original sound. Their audience remains huge because they've always attracted younger listeners drawn to their mix of virtuosity, cosmic lyrics, complex musical textures, and powerful yet delicate lead vocals. By the mid-'90s, even longtime detractors of progressive rock, conceded that they were the best of all the prog-rock bands. Today, their music from almost every era is regarded by fans with undiminished enthusiasm, and by their critics as respectable attempts at doing something serious with rock music. With over three decades of classic rock to choose from, there is no shortage of back catalogue rarities, amazing memorabilia and quality collectibles, all available right here in our specialist Yes collectors store.
