If you’re a fan of any of the above mentioned artists and bands, I can tell you now without a word of a lie, you are going to be bowled over by: ‘Quest For The Stones’. WebSite | Review
First, here’s a bit about the history of YAK…
YAK plays instrumental Progressive Rock and hail from Essex in the United Kingdom. The band was originally formed in Loughton/Ongar in 1982 as a four-piece, but folded in 1984. Over the next 20 years, the music was kept 'alive' by keyboard player and YAK composer Martin Morgan and finally in 2004 a CD called: ‘Dark Side Of The Duck’ was released, featuring 8 of the original YAK tracks with the band emulated electronically on keyboards. Following this and the positive web reviews of the music, the band got back together.
Two further CD's were released, one in 2005 and one in 2006. These were both ‘live’ recordings of rehearsals/jam sessions in those years.
In late 2007 Martin Morgan got together with drummer Dave Speight to work on new YAK material. Dave played drums for Peter Banks (ex-YES) and Nick May's band WHIMWISE (ex- ENID) as well as featuring with, the Hungarian progressive rock band: YESTERDAYS. Together with Gary Bennett on bass, the ‘Journey Of The Yak’ album was recorded between April & August 2008, and it was in 2009 that CDS Towers discovered it for your listening pleasure.
Back then we described it as “one of the best Symphonic Prog albums I’d heard in years” - now in 2015 it still sounds great, and there’s a brand new YAK CD to savour entitled: ‘Quest For The Stones’. Tracklist:
