Saw them 3 times in the early 70's wish I'd been able to see them with Tony Kate, the original keyboardist on "The Yes Album." Wake man was even better, but I always loved Kate's keys on "Starship Trooper.

Like Tom Sawyer by Rush, Pull Me Under by Dream Theater, and Epitaph by King Crimson, this song helped guide me to one of the greatest bands to ever walk this Earth. Roundabout is my ringtone and will never get old.

Chris Squire is a BAD MF!

I am no musician, but have listened enough since '76 to be able to say that there is no group that is so musically rich ever. Everything they do is with artistic purpose. That is, there is no noise. This piece is a great example.

I love Yes like no other band- saw them 20 times live each time fantastic regardless of the change in players- replacing Jon was bad Karma I think. This song though is the most overplayed by rock stations. All you ever here is this, Owner of a Lonely Heart, and All Good People. Just once play some of the other great music- Tales From Topographic anyone?

The bass is amazing in this song

I agree with petercrisss, Bruford v. White? While White is an excellent drummer, he can't match Bruford's musicianship !

We performed this for the first time in front of several hundred people at the Sugar Pine Ranch Rally in Colorado last month. It went over very well, but from our perspective, we've still got performance aspects to tighten up. What a great song!

Finally got all the way through this at Electric Edric rehearsal Tuesday night, beginning to end. It doesn't sound good yet, but it will.

Chris Squire is a beast on this song

I have seen this piece live more than any other song. It holds up and remains powerful. Here is a salute to the nature seen on our journeys. Peace.

Love the bass on this song. Chris Squire is awesome! and Rick Wakeman is masterful every time he plays.

When I was a teenager, my Dad and I liked to analyze the lyrics to the stuff I was listening to. Roundabout made perfect sense to my Dad.

Saw them in Pittsburgh several times too. They opened the roof of the arena to let all the smoke out. One of the tighter bands I've seen. Alan White on drums & percussion is underrated because Squire has such a strong bass line. The entire band was so talented. A treat to watch live. Be blessed, Rev Rob

I'd really like to get the bass on an isolated track and then loop it for infinity.

Eh, Frank, that's Jon Anderson. Ian Anderson is the lead singer of Jethro Tull, but he's a good singer too.

Damn I love this song! So fun to rock out on the keyboard to ;D

Cheeses me off that they feature the greatest hits album instead of the definitive recording.

Saw the band twice in the early 80's. Both shows amazing...ne v e r realized how integral Chris Squire was to their sound until I saw him play live.
