Fact #170306


Short story:

Future prog-rock giants Yes play their very first gig together, at East Mersey Youth Camp, Essex, UK, Europe.

Full article:

Jon Anderson (vocalist, Yes) : The first actual show Yes did, half the show was a rendition of Midnight Hour, a groovy Midnight Hour, slowed down. The organ player at the time, Tony Kaye, would do a Doors' sort of thing, and the guitars would start doing feedback stuff. Not heavy, more quiet and groovy. In a way, we were doing Motown-type songs, slowing them down, reinterpreting them our own way.
