About I've Seen All Good People. Jon Anderson, the songwriter, is a very spiritual person, and (therefore) strongly opposed to unjust war, like the one in Vietnam at the time of this song. The song is against the war and encourages people to reach out spiritually, to be in touch with themselves and goodness/god. I've Seen All Good People" Track Info.

The term "I've seen all good people" is ALL the people, including the so-called enemy. The line, "Don't surround yourself with yourself" refers to self-righteous behavior; "Move on back two squares" is a chess term meaning to retreat and rethink your position. The lyrics also refer to the queen, which is the most versatile and powerful chess piece. I know people who have owned this album since the 70's and they don't know it's there. So, now, here is one thing about Yes that cannot, or should not be ignored, basically because it is Yes band history: Most of the lines of most of their songs are not entirely meant to convey a clear thought. It can be seen, however, that these phrases, when strung together, could, in an almost mystical way, invoke some degree of direction, in purpose and vision. The cold, hard fact is that Yes was a band that went about their songwriting process in what we could call an unfinished state.
The Yes Album was released on March 19, 1971, amid Yes’s seemingly endless touring dates – from the completion of that disc to the recording of their next, Fragile, in August that same year. Rehearsals for Fragile began in the last week in July, but not before an important change to the group’s composition. The background vocals were recorded in the same manner described for I’ve Seen All Good People, with each member recording their harmony line separately, doubled, and then summed into pairs of group harmonies, to be mixed into stereo. Afterwards, Anderson says, We got to the end of the song, it just seemed it needed something else.
I've Seen All Good People: (i) Your Move (ii) All Good People (Live). The band is known for its expansive songs, esoteric lyrics, elaborate album art and live stage sets. The band’s current line-up consists of guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Geoff Downes, singer Jon Davison and bassist Billy Sherwood. YES alumni are Chris Squire, Jon Anderson, Rick Wakeman, Bill Bruford, Trevor Horn, Trevor Rabin, Billy Sherwood, Tony Kaye, Peter Banks, Patrick Moraz, Benoit David, Oliver Wakeman, Igor Khoroshev and Tom Brislin.
