...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

Yes, “Clear Days” from Time and a Word (1970): YESterdays



Jon Anderson has written a few classic Yes songs by himself. A couple that immediately come to mind include “Astral Traveler” — from later in this sophomore 1970 release, Time and a Word — and, much later, the title track from 1977’s Going For The One.
Sadly, “Clear Days” is not a high point for the world’s greatest progressive rock band.

In fact, there is nothing progressive about the track, which is weighed down by a dirge like orchestral arrangement, flower-power lyrics, and a sappy vocal arrangement. “Clear Days” underscores just how much Yes was still struggling with its identity.
