Mark and Kevin start a series on Yes members’ solo albums with the Alan White album, Ramshackled. There’s also news on a new YMP Classic Feed containing the archive of older episodes and the 2 pence segment is about ARW – and it’s a bit controversial…
Why is Ramshackled the least well-known of the Yes solo albums?
Is it possible to hear Alan White’s influence?
What style is the record?
Listen to the episode then let us know what you think!
Thanks to Mark Anthony K, we both managed to speak to Billy Sherwood and I’m releasing this episode on Chris Squire’s birthday. Billy talks a lot about his memories of Chris as well as his experience of playing with Yes and his new album, Citizen.
There is also a review from Mark Anthony K of Keys to Ascension I and a lovely recording of Deidre Nelson who is the partner of Yes author, David Watkinson. It’s a lovely and unusual way to experience Jon Anderson’s lyrics.
Is Billy looking forward to playing Drama and Fragile?
What is the new album, Citizen, all about?
What was it like to be part of Chris Squire’s last recording?
Listen to the episode and then let me know what you think!

Erratum from Steve – Keith Levene wasn’t a member of the Sex Pistols, he was a co-founder with ‘Johnny Rotten’ (John Lydon) of Public Image Ltd., Lydon’s post-Pistols band. Levene was also an early member of the Clash, though he was already out the band by the time they made their first album.
