Yes is the first studio album from the English rock band Yes, released on 25 July 1969 by Atlantic Records. Recorded during the first year of their formation, the album displays the band's early musical direction of performing rearranged cover versions of songs by pop, jazz, and folk artists. The album includes covers of "Every Little Thing" by The Beatles and "I See You" by The Byrds and original material, much of which was written by singer Jon Anderson.
Yes was not a commercial success upon release and failed to enter the UK chart, but it received a considerable amount of positive reviews from UK and US press. "Sweetness" and "Looking Around" were released as singles which also failed to chart. Yes was remastered in 1994 and 2003; the latter remaster contains several previously unreleased tracks including a rendition of "Something's Coming" from West Side Story.
