Yes: The Quest (Album of the Week)

Yes has been a part of of my life since I was a toddler in the early '70s. I can clearly remember my father playing The Yes Album and Fragile so loud in the basement that our kitchen floor rattled. So, the London art-rock outfit has had a special place in my heart for over five decades. 

The Quest is the band's 22nd record and the first without their founder, Chris Squire, who passed away in 2015. The current lineup is Jon Davison on vocals, Steve Howe on guitars, Billy Sherwood on bass (the person that Squire insisted take his spot if he passed away), Geoff Downes on keyboards and Alan White on drums. 

It's a fantastic record filled with music that is a rare find these days. Here is the opening track.
