Review by Guillermo
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars "Sweet Dreams" is in my opinion the best song from the "Time and a Word" album, and it was released as a single in 1970. Composed by Jon Anderson with David Foster, a bassist who played with Anderson between 1963-1967 in a band called "Warriors" (which also had the now late drummer Ian Wallace, who played with Yes one gig in late 1968 when Bill Bruford went to the University for a short time, and Wallace also played with King Crimson between 1971 and 1972, and of course with the "21st Century Schizoid Band" for some years in this century). Foster also co-wrote the title track from the album, and there it seems that he contributed backing vocals to "Sweet Dreams" and acoustic guitar and backing vocals to the title track. "Sweet Dreams" is a Pop Rock "happy song", without the orchestral arrangements that most of the songs in that album have, and it was a very good choice for a single release despite it went nowhere in the singles charts, I think.

"Dear Father" was recorded during the same recording sessions for their second album, and also was recorded during the 1969 recording sessions for their first album but with a different arangement (closer to the BBC album sessions recording and later released as a bonus track in the expanded and remastered version of their first album in 2003). This 1970 version has an orchestral arrangement duplicating or replacing some of the parts Tony Kaye and Peter Banks originally played in their respective instruments, so both musicansī parts sometimes sound somewhat "buried" by the orchestral arrangements. It is a good version, but previous versions were more energetic and I prefer them a bit more than this orchestral version, and this 1970 recording was slowed a bit before releasing it, and for this reason Andersonīs voice sounds a bit different to his "normal" voice. It was also released in the "Yesterdays" compilation album in 1974, and also as a bonus track in the 2003 expanded and remastered version of their "Time and a Word" album.

3 stars Ah, 1970, what a time...Yes was emerging and here we get "Sweet Dreams" and "Dear Father" from their second album, TIME AND A WORD. Not one of my favorite Yes albums but better than the first, YES. Both songs are pretty good and show what waited in the wings for the future of Yes. Peter Banks is sti ... (read more)
