That cannot pass constitutional mustard.

"Love Will Find A Way (Extended Version)" - Yes

From 1987's, "Big Generator" released on Atlantic Records' owned Atco label. Conflicts between singer Jon Anderson and guitarist Trevor Rabin caused this record to take nearly 2 years to finish. Anderson wanted to bring back the old Yes sound that started the group and Rabin wanted to be more commercial and mainstream. The following year bassist Chris Squire led the new Yes and Anderson left to form Crane, Poole and Schmidt...I mean Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman and Howe with other former Yes members for Arista Records. Funny that band sounded like a law firm because a major lawsuit broke out between Atlantic and Arista soon after over the "Yes" moniker. Rabin stayed neutral through all that and released his 4th solo LP, "Can't Look Away". He has been a film composer since 1996. His work includes the recent "National Treasure: Book Of Secrets", along with "Con-Air", "Exorcist: The Beginning" and "Deep Blue Sea".
Yes' drama continued on through the 90's as an on-again, off-again affair. The band recently announced a 40th anniversary tour to begin most likely in the fall of this year and will include original members Anderson , Squire and guitarist Steve Howe (who formed Asia in the early 80's). Rabin will not be a part of it from what I can gather.
"Love Will Find A Way" reached #30 on the Hot 100 but made it to #1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks. I think it's a fine track and this mix lasts 7:09.
