Soon, oh soon the light,
Pass within and soothe this endless night
And wait here for you, Our reason to be here.
Relayer was the first Yes album I owned. I took it to high school and we enjoyed it there in Mr. Thomas’ Social Studies office where I was an aide. I’m not 100% sure but I believe the album art attracted me to the purchase. It is artwork by Roger Dean who drew many Yes covers and the “Yes” logo itself. I have inducted Yes into my Music Hall of Fame.
