No episode today – Happy Easter if you celebrate it!

I’m on holiday with the family this week so I haven’t had time to complete an episode. Mark and I have been listening to the first Asia album so we will release our thoughts on that next week.

Have a great break if you have one at this time of year.

Olias of Sunhillow Live – 377

Olias of Sunhillow by Jon Anderson
Olias of Sunhillow by Jon Anderson

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier, Bill Govier and VR Hoisington

With Jon Anderson playing two songs from Olias of Sunhillow live on his 1000 Hands Tour, we felt it was time to watch/listen to some recordings of Olias material from through the years. This is music which has not been performed very often – and we think it should have been.

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • What Olias songs are being performed live in 2019?
  • How does the band configuration work?
  • What about older recordings?

Thoughts on The Royal Affair Tour 2019 – 376

A Royal Affair!
A Royal Affair!

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier, Bill Govier and VR Hoisington

This week we abandoned our original plans because we felt it was important to talk about the news surrounding the Yes Summer 2019 North American trip which is called the Royal Affair Tour. Mark and I give our views on that so this episode is a little bit different in format to usual as a result.

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • Who or what is Yasia?
  • Who or what is Bumblefoot?
  • Arthur Brown? Really?

Was Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe nothing more than an enhanced Jon Anderson solo record? 375

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier, Bill Govier and VR Hoisington

Remastered and Expanded ABWH

As we approach the 30th anniversary of ABWH, we go back to consider whether it’s actually a Jon Anderson solo record, as suggested by Stephen Lambe in his book, YES every album every song.

Also, Mark suggests a 2 pence topic on videos…

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • ABWH – is it Yes, is it a new band, is it an Anderson solo project?
  • How was the album written?
  • Should it now be regarded as part of Yes’ discography?

Jon Anderson’s 1000 Hands Part 1 – first listen – 374

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier, Bill Govier and VR Hoisington

1000 Hands Website

This week Mark and I got our hands on 1000 hands – or at least our virtual hands as we received a review download copy. So we have pooled our initial reactions to the music and that’s coming up in a moment.

Also, we have a 2 pence on the Anderson final Yes project rumours so it’s an Anderson rich episode.

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • How does Anderson fit 1000 hands on one album?
  • Can you hear the special guests?
  • Does the collaboration between Anderson and Howe point towards Union II?
