Levin Torn White album 2011

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

We enjoy listening to music neither of us has heard previously and which combines Yes (Alan White) with King Crimson (Tony Levin). It’s an amazing album and well worth the time and effort to listen! Then we are joined by none other than Jeremy North for a 2 pence discussion all about when it would have been best for Yes to call it a day…you’ll need to listen to understand why we were talking about this!

  • What kind of music do this supergroup create?
  • Instrumental prog rock – why?
  • If yes had given up after Close to the Edge, what would you miss?…and many other questions!

Reasons why Yes music has endured and will continue – 284

Yes Music PodcastProduced by Preston Frazier, David Gordon, Bill Govier, Wayne Hall and Michel Arsenault.

As it’s half term holiday in the UK this week, I haven’t been able to add all the ‘bells and whistles’ such as news and in-depth analysis to this episode but there was time to speak to bass maestro, Miguel Falcao, and Mark about Yes music and why it endures. Mark also reviews another Flash album – ‘Out of Our Hands’. Back to normal next week I hope!

  • What is it about Yes music which means it has lasted for almost 50 years?
  • What will make it endure further?
  • What makes Yes music special?
