The Daily Vinyl video #38: “The Ancient” (special edit) by YES


March 06, 2010 — Using a rare DJ pressing of YES’s 1973 controversial double album “Tales From Topographic Ocean,” I created this special edit. This could have been used as a “single” if they had done such a thing to this nearly 19-minute song. This is from Part 4 of “The Ancient (Giants Under The Sun)” which consumes the entire 3rd side (as does each of the four songs on this release – hence the “controversy”).

The video was filmed in East Tennessee out in the woods of Fairfield Glade. The turntable was mostly covered, but as you can see, snow did occasionally drift in. I was on a “spiritual retreat” and of course, I brought my turntable. I hope you enjoy it. 5-star ratings are always appreciated.
