Album of the Day
Tormato (Deluxe Edition)
Released 40 years ago, TORMATO was the final album of the 1970s from U.K. prog rock greats Yes. Recorded in London following an exhaustive tour behind comeback set GOING FOR THE ONE, the sessions strained the group - vocalist Jon Anderson and keyboardist Rick Wakeman would depart soon afterward - but resulted in some wonderful music. Housed in a distinctive Hipgnosis-designed cover, the platinum-selling collection features immaculate performances (with several new instruments broadening the quintet's sound) and such strong songs as “Release, Release,” “Onward” and popular single “Don't Kill the Whale.” The Deluxe Edition of TORMATO adds 10 bonus tracks, all but a couple of them non-LP originals.
