Opis materiału Roundabout - Yes (1971)

                  "Roundabout" was the opening track for the 1971 album "Fragile" by British progressive rock band Yes.  The song was written by singer Jon Anderson and guitarist Steve Howe.  In January 1972, an edited version of the song was released as a single with "Long Distance Runaround" on the B-side.  "Roundabout" has become one of the best-known songs by Yes.  The single was one of the band's biggest hits in the United States, peaking at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100.  The single version of the song was edited down to 3:27 for American pop radio airplay, although many stations played the full version of the song.  Anderson has said that the song's cryptic lyrics simply came to him while driving to the studio one early morning.  Howe's use of octave harmonics on the acoustic guitar introduction of the song and the instrumental break in the middle, plucking four notes that compose an Em chord on an open guitar, has become one of his signature pieces of guitar work.  "Fragile" was the fourth album by the band Yes, released on Atlantic Records.  It was the band's first album with keyboardist Rick Wakeman after the departure of Tony Kaye, and the first to feature cover art by Roger Dean, his work emblematic of both the band and progressive rock as a whole.  "Fragile" was issued in the U.K. in November 1971, but was held back in North America for two months because of the chart momentum of "The Yes Album".  It peaked at #4 on the Billboard 200 during a stay of 46 weeks.  Yes are an English progressive rock band formed in London in 1968, generally regarded as one of the archetypal bands and pioneers of the genre.  Despite many lineup changes, occasional splits within the group, and the ever-changing trends in popular music, the band has continued for more than 40 years and still retains a large following, having sold over 33 million albums.  The band's music blends symphonic and other classical structures with their own brand of rock music.

This fucking slaps so hard.
YES is one of my favorite bands. I remember being in my sophomore Acapella Choir class in 1978 and our teacher put 'Roundabout' on the record player. It was all I could do to keep seated. I wanted to get up and rock out. This song and 'Owner Of Lonely Heart' are 2 of the best YES songs in my book.
