....Don't think so, and I also don't think it's blue eyed soul, either (although it's a sublime pop record) - but it has the same backing track as Ben E King's version on Atlantic (the other side of "Ecstasy") and that's definitely soul...

That's not actually 100% correct, Jay Traynor only sang on their first couple of singles, the singer on the ones that we know (Living above your head, Got hung up etc) is actually another Jay, Jay Black.

Pete's correct in both respects - and the singer on this version of "Yes" is indeed Jay Traynor, BTW...
