Unseen prototype images for Magnification by Bob Cesca

After our great interview with Bob Cesca last week, he very kindly shared the following ‘work in progress’ images from his work on Magnification and Symphonic Live. (Click to enlarge.)

Here’s how he explained the prototype images:

After our chat the other day, I scrounged up some old work-in-progress Magnification era images from my archives. Thought you’d enjoy.

No one has seen these since Jon in 2001-02. At one point, I built a version of the Moorglade Mover. We were thinking about linking Magnification with the story that began with Olias and Fragile. Even though Roger’s work has been adapted by other Yes artists, namely David Fairbrother Roe the artist who designed the Olias album, I thought it was too derivative for Magnification, so I quietly buried the concept in lieu of the story of the IDR and the talisman.

The image with the silhouetted bridge and talisman is what I wanted for the Magnification cover. Lost that debate with Jon. It was eventually used as the back cover of the EP, so it wasn’t wasted.

Yessongs the movie – 353

Yessongs - the movie
Yessongs – the movie

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

Yessongs the movie – a different beast to the album of the same name, this is an iconic record of the band arguably at their peak. This week, Mark and I watch the film on DVD/Blu-ray and see what we think from the vantage point of 2018. There’s also a Roger Dean/Yes 2 pence.

  • Does the visual aspect of Yessongs outweigh the dodgy audio?
  • How does the film stand the test of time?
  • How is the song selection?
