The music of Yes indelibly shaped the original sound of progressive rock. But the true tale of this landmark band goes well beyond headline-making albums like Fragile and Close to the Edge. In this book, Kevin Mulryne tells the absorbing story of the final Yes album of the 1970s, Tormato, uncovering myriad fascinating twists and turns for the first time.

"Tormato was my introduction to the music of the world's greatest progressive rock band, and I have spent years finding out all I can about it," explains Kevin. "I have spoken to fans, experts and many of the people who were there during the technical setup of the equipment, the recording of the album, and the creation of the artwork."

"Along the way, I have learned a great deal about Yes, and the processes, frustrations and triumphs of recording a rock album in the late '70s. This is a deep dive into what makes an iconic band tick. I'm sure you will enjoy the journey as much as me "

So what's the real deal with Tormato? ... Be prepared to be surprised.
