Anyone for ARW in London 19th March with David Watkinson?

Yes fan David Watkinson has now a spare seat next to him, for the ARW Sunday 19th gig in London. Row P in the Stalls. David said “My old Yes fanzine collaborator can’t make the gig from Australia so I am helping him move the ticket. So if you fancy seeing a fabulous gig and a chance to talk about all things Yes, or having your Perpetual Change book signed, then the ticket is £81.00. You can meet me at the gig – I will have the tickets in hand. Anyone interested?” david_yes@hotmail.com

New Yes book arrives! Dialogue by Jon Kirkman

I asked my super-talented son, William, to take some ‘un-boxing photos’. Great record of the process! It’s a really beautiful book, packed with a ridiculous number of wonderful pictures and interviews. Get it here – if you can – stocks are running out I think!

Everyone in Yes is a newcomer! 270

Citizen by Billy Sherwood
Citizen by Billy Sherwood

Produced by Preston Frazier, David Gordon, Bill Govier, Wayne Hall and Michel Arsenault.

It’s half term holiday for me this week so the episode is slightly shorter than normal. However, Mark and I manage to think about the idea that everyone in Yes currently is a ‘newcomer’ if you stretch that concept as far as possible. Also, Mark reviews Citizen by Billy Sherwood and there’s plenty of news.

  • What was the first studio-recorded moment of each of the current members of the band?
  • Was each recorded debut as successful as the rest?
  • Does it make a difference how much live playing goes on before a new member contributes to a studio album?

Tormato and Relayer Live – Really? 269

Produced by Preston Frazier, David Gordon, Bill Govier, Wayne Hall and Michel Arsenault.

With Yes announcing that the next two albums to be given the ‘Album Series’ treatment are Tormato and Relayer, we take a listen to both and discuss what we think the issues and challenges are of playing these records live in 2017/18.

Mark also listens to the new Rick Wakeman album, Piano Portraits and there’s a voice mail on the same subject from Bob Keeley. Finally, our 2 pence involves Alan White.

  • What is it about Tormato and Relayer that might be difficult to recreate live today?
  • How will the current line-up cope with the 70s albums?
  • Should they still be going for ‘authenticity’?
