The first words that Bruce Fairbairn said to the band were, 'Make the best YES album you can, the rest will follow.' It was as simple as that. We believe he helped us all realize how important YES music is; he was a kindred spirit, a teacher, a teacher, a great producer & a pleasure to be with. We all thank you Bruce and miss you. We dedicate this album to you...
