    Does that mean he likes it or he hates it?

    I happen to love Tormato, one of the few and proud.

      I will certainly read this book

      It seems that there will be some interesting details on the technology, engineering, the instruments etc, so I eill enjoy reading about that.

      I feel as if I have read every interview over these many years, so I hope there will be some new details about the band members which aren't merly culled from older written material.

        I'm with you 100% Tormato is the album I listen to more than any other Yes album.

          I can't see me buying/reading any more Yes-related books. The same anecdotes and gossip recycled all over again...
          Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
          Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

              This looks like a self-published vanity project about one of the worst Yes albums ever.

                I’ll have to check this out. Now if only someone could also convince Atlantic to fix the Dolby issue and make the album sound better.

                    It's not an album I've every played with any regularity. I've probably over the years listened to the Wembley and Quebec shows from that tour more often, certainly in the last 20 years or so.

                    Coincidentally, I've just bought a book about another album from the same year, and one I admire and enjoy considerably more than Tormato: Dylan's Street Legal which has rightly undergone a favourable reassessment in recent years, especially after the remix and remaster improved the initially very muddy mix.

                      It's an inconsistent album, but 3 of the songs on it are among my favorites. It's the only Yes studio material from the '70s I still listen to, besides the title track of Close to the Edge.

                          Kevin's research has dug up plenty that isn't the same old anecdotes and gossip: see http://tormatobook.com/why-write-a-book-about-tormato for some details.

                            One of the best books regarding Pink Floyd is about the making of The Final Cut (though sadly it's out of print now) and it's a self-published vanity project but the author had access to most everyone involved in the making of the album as well as exclusive photographs and other images, so sometimes pieces of history are only uncovered when someone takes the time and effort to follow their passion.

                              Thanks! No, nothing at all culled from older written material apart from quotations from sources where it illustrates what I'm trying to say!
