Theme music

The music I use is the last movement of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite. This has been used as introduction music at many Yes concerts. My theme music is not take from a live concert – I put it together from the following two creative commons sources: thanvannispen and archive.org

  1. Kevin, it’s clear from your comments that you enjoyed this, as did I. I’m so glad that I found it and forwarded it on to you. Now if only Jon Anderson, Trevor and Rick could find the time to get together perhaps some of this could be recreated. But that’s probably an Endless Dream…

    1. 😉 Nice one, Ken. I did indeed really enjoy this – it’s a period of live shows I really had no knowledge of previously so it was a joy to watch this – thanks again!!

  2. The thing about an official release of this tour (or any other archive footage) is that Yes have gone through so many record companies by now that it’s very hard to actually find out who owns the rights let alone who’d invest in a DVD by Yes. Voiceprint is the only hope. The released UNION LIVE. I don’t see Frontiers Records releasing archive material. If it wasn’t released then, I don’t see much hope for anything past the ShowTime DVD of this show (identical to the YT video).

    1. Good point, John. Way back I tried to get official permission to use some Yes music as the theme to the podcast – the record company told me the same thing – it was the publishing rights which got in the way there as well.

      Such a shame.

      Thanks for the comment!

    1. Thanks, Paul. He’s a busy man and deserves huge credit for his work optimising our experience of this music. Can’t wait for Close to the Edge!
