Self Titled by Patrick Moraz
Produced by Preston Frazier, David Gordon, Bill Govier, Wayne Hall and Michel Arsenault.

We look at the differences between Steve Howe and Trevor Rabin by listening to songs from Talk and Close to the Edge. Then we consider what it would be like if Anderson and Wakeman re-joined Yes in our two pence segment. Finally, Mark reviews Patrick Moraz’ Self Titled album. Another packed episode!

  • How do the two guitarist differ in approach?
  • Can Yes be Yes with Trevor Rabin?
  • How does Howe achieve his sound?
