Recording was also met with technical difficulties, with the group spending two days trying Yes - Yes get a Hammond organ for Kaye to play on to function correctly. They hired one to use as Kaye owned a Vox Continental disguised as a Hammond.
Instead, he recorded his parts with the guitar loud in one ear "and nothing else in the other". The band would open their live shows with this tune, which features three-part harmonies.
