In the unpredicable tradition of Yes, it took a twist of fate to bring about the completion of this album. While Jon Anderson, Bill Bruford, Rick Wakeman & Steve Howe were in Europe collaborating with producer Jonathan Elias on tracks for their second ABWH album, Chris Squire, Alan White, Tony Kaye & Trevor Rabin were working in LA, on their own new songs, including developing collaborations with a number of singers. When Jon arrived in LA to work on vocals for the ABWH tracks, he called Trevor, who took the opportunity of playing Jon several new songs that he was in the process of writing. When Jon heard the music, he immediately felt he wanted to be a part of it and suggested he add his vocals to the songs. Trevor, in turn, realized that Jon's unique vocal style was just what the music needed. Jon also heard some new music that Chris, Tony & Alan had been working on with producer Eddy Offord & added his vocals to this also. In this new spirit of harmony, it was only logical that Chris add his distinctive vocals to the new ABWH tracks, which by then had been completeed by Bill, Rick & Steve. Naturally, it followed that, in the light of all the ideas and action, they should all aim to do one album, one album of enormous effort and creation. A 'Union'
