Time and a Word is the second studio album by the English progressive rock band Yes, released on 24 July 1970 by Atlantic Records. Following the commercial failure of their first album, Yes, the group continued to follow their early musical direction of performing original material and cover versions of songs by pop, jazz, and folk artists. Time and a Word also includes songs with orchestral arrangements.
Time and a Word became the group's first release to enter the UK chart at #45. It however failed to chart in the US and received mixed reviews from critics. During their UK tour in April 1970, guitarist Peter Banks was fired from the group. By the time of the album's release, he was replaced by Steve Howe who is photographed with the group on the North American issue. In 2003, the album was remastered with several previously unreleased tracks.
