I know this band has been "tossed" about before in discussion regarding "bands that sound like Yes", but I had never seen any footage of them before. Here's a couple of nice clips, enjoy for those who are familiar with this likable band. First is Voices, then Theme

Thanks for the links. I've never seen them before either. However, I bought their albums "Towards the Sun" and "Fluid" back in the late seventies. I never actually, at the time, thought of them as a YES copy! More like; just another progressive band - not really up there with YES, Crimson, Tull.. - but still good enough to get inspired by. But I do remember that I held the second album a little bit higher because it felt more like their own (less obvious influences, perhaps...).

Very Cool band, I don´t perceive them as a Yes copy, pehaps Yes oriented sound...
I´m actualy trying to track down their first album "Toward the sun".
They should´ve entered my underrated bands/artists thread...

Their first two albums are available as "one". Shop around Amazon / CDUniverse etc. I bought the first one shortly after it was released based on a review in a Jem catalog, where they cited an award they received at a music festival. Didn't find the second till I located the "2 for 1" deal years later on CD. There is something to like on both albums.
