    This is exactly how I feel, and always seemed like I was being a bit of a philistine. Glad to know I'm not alone!

    I pretty much only play side one too, at least what would be if they weren't all digital files on an ipod.

    I blame Wynton, what was the question?

    The first side of "Concerts" is indeed great. However, I could do without Dagmar Krause.

    It took me about a decade to get Dagmar, now I adore her.

    I think they should remove all DRUM tracks from the entire discog of Yes and replace them with a tuba.

    You could have at least waited until the RIP thread was gone

    Better? So as not to step on the most sensible toes we all know. And I wouldn't want to wait until 2018 either.

    Well, I think that Alan White is 27x better on the tuba than Bruford. And that is not an opinion buddy - that is *fact*. Bruford isn't even qualified to carry his mouthpiece, and his embouchure totally sucks! Bruford can't even hit a low 'Eb' if he tried, and when he does its always sharp. Just listen to the brass band march section on 'Yes: Live on Main Street, the 4th Of July Celebration, Des Moines, Vol. 12'. I think Dick Lakeman would totally agree with this. For me, Yes truly died the day that Alan White put the tuba back in the case and started using the Sousaphone - it shouldn't have even have been called Yes at that point. And then Trevor Porn joins the band and has the balls to use the bass trombone...oh vey!

    This is probably my favorite Dagmar singing:


    Or maybe this:


    Either way, it's easy to dismiss Dagmar for some of her more . . . histrionic (is that the right word?) moments, but she had a fine voice.
    I want to dynamite your mind with love tonight.

    I listened to some Art Bears last night and was digging Dagmar's voice a lot.

    That's because Bruford sucks on the tuba, and you're not supposed to DO that - you're supposed to blow it.

    Hopes and Fears - got through the first few tracks and crashed. And that's not their fault - I was really, really sleepy! Going to try to get to the rest of it soon.

    ^ Oh good. Knowing you, I'd be shocked if these albums end up being just merely OK; I think once your bitten you're gonna be back for more. No guarantees of course, but I just have a suspicion (plus it happened before with "Dirty Boy" )

    I think I'd missed some of the wit and humor there previously. You can hear the sarcasm in her delivery of "On Suicide" - it's dark humor.

    Totally man. These albums can give off a seemingly healthy whiff of pretentiousness, but I think they are anything but. Real deal for me. Sarcasm and bitter irony abound. Dark as hell, too! Try them around October or late autumn.....yum.
