Going For The One

I bought this Yes album on vinyl when it first came out back in the 70's, and played it all the time on my wreck of a "stereogram" - usually through headphones because I liked it loud and my parents didn't appreciate loud rock.

The album didn't get played much through the latter half of the 80's and early 90's and was finally dispatched to a second-hand vinyl store when I decided that CD was the way forward.

I somehow never got around to buying the CD of Going For The One, though. It wasn't alone - I think the Human League's: Dare album was one of the very few I actually replaced with CD.

So, to last week, when I splashed out on Ebay and bought 3 Yes albums on CD, including Going For The One. From the moment the album started playing on the iPod, I was hooked again! Just hearing the intro to the title track sent little tingles down my spine, and Jon Anderson's vocal work in this track is nothing short of superb. Whilst the other tracks too are excellent, I think the title track epitomises everything I loved about Yes' later work, and now I can't stop listening to it.

Rock On!
