Notes: This is not a tribute album to Yes, but a tribute to how Yes has inspired new generations of musicians to find their own creativity. Or so it says in the liner notes, which I wrote, so I guess they're right. Cyberian Khatru is a compilation of tracks by musicians on alt.music.yes, the Yes Usenet newsgroup. Just as Yes have had diverse influences, so music influenced in some way by Yes is diverse too. There aren't any covers of Yes songs, but the occasional quote sneaked in.

The cover, by Magnification artist Bob Cesca, was done for the In a Word box set, but was not needed when Roger Dean was brought in on that project. Cesca kindly donated it to us. (HP, 7 Nov 02)
