Today in Acoustic-Rock History

1981 – British progressive rock band Yes announce their break-up. During its 13-year career, the group became one of the world’s most popular exponents of intricate, mystical, symphonic rock, despite the fact that they only had one big chart hit, “Roundabout”. Of course, they have since reunited and remain active to this day.

1988 – A four CD box set documenting the first quarter century of Eric Clapton’s career, “Crossroads,” is released.

2000 – “The Wall Live: 1980-81,” culled from Pink Floyd’s London performances of their all-time favorite work, is released.
