The ‘Happening’ I keep referring to was postponed again this week which only left me enough time to do a very short episode containing a review of ABWH by Mark Anthony K and the details of how to enter the Anderson Ponty Band competition to win one of two copies of the new album, ‘Better Late Than Never’!

Greetings Kevin,

A short but to the point episode. What I really love about this podcast in general is that even when it’s short there is always a bit of information that you mention or post that I check out. I’m really hoping that everything goes smooth Oct 6th for whatever you are planning. I must admit I’m curious to find out what it is.
Take care

Mark Anthony K

Looking forward to the 6th of October… One thing to point out. The reason that Howe stayed in London to record his parts was that he was in the middle of making his own solo record Turbulence. All the best and prog on!

Greetings John,

Thanks for pointing that out. It makes sense looking at it like that. Although it seems from things I’ve read from various members if Yes…Steve seems to be a difficult person to work with. In fact if memory serves me correctly Steve wanted to record guitar tracks separately at a different studio for Drama as well as Union. I see a pattern.

Terrific review of ABWH by Mark Anthony K, but one note: Matt Clifford was the other keyboard player on this album…Julian Colebeck came aboard for the tour while Matt Clifford toured that summer with a group called the Rolling Stones. 🙂
