Yes: Roundabout

You might think we’re talking about Yes the adverb which is an affirmative answer to an interrogative statement but we’re not! We’re talking about British progressive rock group Yes and more specifically their very excellent album 1972 “Fragile.” (see what I just did there?)  Before this the only Yes song I knew was “Owner Of A Lonely Heart.” I’m glad I got to hear this and other tracks from this album because it is great.

I Googled progressive rock because I had no idea what the term meant and since we’re in the middle of a string of videos I figured it might be nice to know what the heck I’m talking about. The internet says it’s rock music which incorporates elements of folk, blues, jazz, classical, and/or world music. No wonder it’s right up my alley! I was pleasantly surprised to see that many groups I quite like are considered progressive rock and I didn’t even know it. There’s still tons I don’t know but I am enjoying the music and the education and what more could anyone want?
