"Quest for the Stones" is the third studio album by British instrumental symph/prog band Yak. The music of Yak is instrumental, melodic and according to the reviews it is mostly being categorised in the genre of symphonic progressive rock. "For the uninitiated, the music of YAK harkens back to the golden age of 70s’ symphonic rock from pioneers like Camel and early Genesis; as well as the solo albums of Steve Hackett (which is amazing considering there is no guitarist). Martin emulates the emotional sustained guitar tones of artists like Steve Hackett and Andy Latimer beautifully.
The Rutland Chronicles …a live jam. This was recorded a year after "Does your Yak Bite?" and was the 2nd time we played together - this is another Jam session with some materials later developed as tracks on Journey of the Yak which was recorded 2 years later. Please Note - this album should not be played to small children or in a car with people you don't know and is really for "completionists" - contains improvisation & was recorded in Lo-Fi on a "Cassette Recorder" - an ancient type of recording facility. Digitised at Ruskin Road Studios, Northampton.
