Heaven & Earth
Heaven & Earth

Produced by Robert Nasir, Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier

We’ve (finally) reached the end of the Yes singles series with Heaven and Earth which didn’t really have any proper singles at all. However, it does give us a chance to think about Yes’ latest studio album again and we also have a bass focus in our 2 pence segment.

  • What’s is it with Heaven and Earth?
  • Were there any singles?
  • Why was RTB used again?

Listen to the episode then let us know what you think!

We cover the Keys to Ascension albums as well as Open Your Eyes this week in our look at the Yes singles. It’s a complex and unclear picture!

Talk, Talk

Produced by Robert Nasir, Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier

We’ve reached Talk in our survey of Yes singles. It’s a fairly sketchy picture but we know there was at least one single from this great album and possibly a couple more – as usual if you have copies of these singles, please do leave a comment int eh show notes!

In our Two pence segment we also have a chance to think about whether Yes have released too many live albums.

  • Was Talk a Trevor Rabin solo album?
  • What were the singles?
  • Was this album progressive?
