Ok, that is not the name of the song…just part of the lyrics. The song is The Remembering (High The Memory) from Tales From Topographic, the amazing 1974 double album from Yes. The album featured only four songs, one on each side of the album. The Remembering was Side 2, my favorite of the four featured songs. I hope you like it as much as I do.
If you research reviews from back in the day you will see that the album was not exactly well received but then again progressive rock was never a favorite of critics. I say screw the critics…..Rick Wakeman’s keyboards, Jon Anderson’s vocals, and strange spacey lyrics that leave you wondering make this the high water mark for Yes. Let me hear from you Prog Rock fans. I know you are out there and I would love to know what you think.
High the memory carry on/While the moments start to linger/Sail away among your dreams/The strength regains us in between our time
