Today is the day.
No, it is not true that Yes lyrics are being added to the New Testament…
“Let us rejoice in this momentous occasion,” said Pope John Paul II in a special service at St. Peter’s. “And let no man be unmoved, remembering the words of Jesus: ‘In and around the lake, mountains come out of the sky, and they stand there.’ Amen.”
…but we do get the epic release of Progeny today. Which is still pretty darn great!

One thought on “Progeny: Highlights From Seventy-Two — Deluxe Edition — 14 CD Box Set”
The mixing and production had better be superior to the crap on the original records. As much as I like Yes’ music, I absolutely refuse to buy their albums because the audio quality royally sucks so bad. No bass, whatsoever. Even on the new album, it sounds awful! In the 1970s, they got away with the being cheap excuse. Today, with how good and affordable the technology has become, there is no excuse for these multimillionaires to be putting out crap audio quality records. My Dad told me that the Yes concert he went to in the early 80s (no Steve Howe) was very similar – poor live audio quality with no bass.
