Holographic Two Pence and 300th Episode Competition! – 295

I’m on holiday – again – this time to celebrate my son Edward getting into the university of his choice. So here’s Preston Frasier, Mark and I discussing the recent 50th Anniversary pronouncement from Jon Anderson.

Also, we have a copy of Steve Howe’s new Anthology 2 to give away thanks to Preston’s generosity as part of the YMP 300th episode celebrations. All the details are in the episode. Thanks Preston!

Yestival is the Steve Howe Show – 294

Two Sides of Peter Banks

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

On social media this week there was a suggestion that Steve Howe has taken over Yes – in organisation and playing. So we investigate this claim by watching some live videos of 2017 and much earlier. Also, we have Preston Frazier with us to talk about his recent experience of Yestival and some two pences. Mark also continues his obsession with a review of Two Sides of Peter Banks.

  • Has Steve Howe taken over?
  • Is he dominating Yes?
  • What was it like at a Yestival concert?
