    Yeah, they did a lot of covers on those first three albums. There's two different Lennon/McCartney songs, Hey Joe, I'm So Glad, some unattributed classical music motifs, and I forget what else. Of course, their big hit from that era, Hush, was also a cover.

    Of course, Yes also did a few covers early on too, in particular there was their version of Richie Havens' No Experience Needed, No Opportunity Necessary ("Or whatever it was called", as Bill Bruford referred to it, once), which incorporated a couple bits from the film score to a western called The Big Country (Bruford mentioned both The Big Country and Big Valley in the Union era interview where he talks about it, but if you've ever seen The Big Country, it's unmistakable as the source of the bits in question).

    In 1976, Peter Gabriel recorded a cover of Strawberry Fields Forever and he did it so majestically. This cover was Gabriel's first solo release after his departure from Genesis and the song found its place at All This And World War II double-LP soundtrack.

    That’s new to me.
    A foreshadowing of Scratch My Back, with just voice and orchestra.

    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Neal Morse (solo and his other bands) have covered many prog songs live or on bonus cd's
    Glass Hammer did a epic prog interpretation of Dan Fogelberg's Longer.
    Yes' cover of Paul Simon's America is well known.
