Fish Out Of Water Deluxe Edition – singles

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

This week Mark and I begin to consider what happened when the band essentially split up a short time after the Drama Tour ended almost exactly 39 years ago in December 1980. So we have the chance to see what each member of the band did next and we’re starting with Alan White and Chris Squire.

  • What was XYZ?
  • Who was involved?
  • Where did Run With the Fox come from?

This week Mark and I had planned to start looking at the next exodus from the band. Yes had essentially disbanded after the Drama tour had come to an end and so we have the opportunity to examine what each member of the band did next – Trevor Horn and Geoff Downes, Steve Howe, Alan White and Chris Squire. First we were going to listen to the next chapter in Squire and White’s journey – so that’s XYZ with Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page – a project which didn’t go anywhere in the end but did produce some demos and, particularly relevant at this time of year, Ru WIth The Fox, the duo’s strangely unsuccessful Christmas single.

Unfortunately, Mark has not been well this week so we’ve decided to shelve this episode until next week. In the meantime, I’ve put together a selection of clips from the Yes authors we have spoken to in 2019’s Patreon group. If you’ve already heard or actually seen these because you are a Patron, then I hope you enjoy hearing some highlights again and if you have been wondering whether to start helping the YMP out financially, maybe this will tip you over the edge – one way or the other!

Dave Watkinson’s new book – Jon Anderson and The Warriors – the road to Yes – 407

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

This week we speak to YMP stalwart and accomplished author David Watkinson about his new book which is finally available to pre-order on Burning Shed’s website. Jon Anderson and The Warriors – the road to Yes is a remarkable achievement and sheds light on a period of music which was critical to the establishment of Yes and to the creation of the force of music Jon Anderson. Mark and I were delighted to be given the chance to read the book first in the world so do stay tuned for our reactions to it and plenty of detail from Dave himself.

  • What picture of that early period is painted by Dave?
  • Is this book just a bunch of text?
  • What’s here for the true Warriors/Jon Anderson/Yes geek?

Jon Anderson and The Warriors
The road to Yes
David Watkinson

A new biography of Jon Anderson, which covers his early life and his
time in The Warriors, up to the formation of Yes and the release of the
band’s first album in 1969

To be published on December 13th via Summer’s End Festival
Promoter Stephen Lambe’s Sonicbond Publishing Company and will be
made available exclusively via Burning Shed.

Author David Watkinson takes us on a journey from the Lancashire
beat music scene in the early 1960s to the vibrancy of London later in
the decade. In the short time that The Warriors existed ‐ from 1963 to
1967 ‐ they released a single, appeared on TV and in a movie and spent
a year following in the Beatles’ footsteps as a working group in
Germany.

As well as providing a complete history of The Warriors, this book
also follows Jon’s subsequent career in London, via appearances with
Gun and his brief solo career as Hans Christian. He finally met Chris
Squire and found a home in Mabel Greer’s Toyshop, as that group
gradually morphed into Yes during the summer of 1968. The book
includes new interviews with Jon and many members of The Warriors,
who were in the band through its various line‐up changes, most for the
very first time. It also features a newly‐researched family tree, never
before seen photographs, both of the Warriors and the first line up of
Yes, plus many items of memorabilia and an exclusive look into the
band’s diaries. It closes with a comprehensive discography and a
collectables section.

Initially, the book will only be available only in a limited hardback
edition of 250, priced £25. All copies will be numbered and signed by
the author, David Watkinson, and will be made exclusively available via
Burning Shed. The book is 224 pages and features over 200
photographs, most unseen for over 50 years. A paperback edition will
be published in Europe on March 27th 2020, and June 26th in the USA.
This later edition will be available via all normal bookselling channels.

What did they do next part 7a – Rick Wakeman – again – 406

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

This week Mark and I start our look at what Rick Wakeman did after leaving Yes for the second time following the Paris Sessions of 1979. That means we need to listen to his double solo album, Rhapsodies. Stay tuned for Mark’s slightly strong feelings about this record a little bit later on.

Before that, there are no fewer than 3 press releases which show, once again, that it’s a fantastic time to be a Yes fan!

  • What sort of music is on Rhapsodies?
  • Was Rick pleased with it?
  • Is it worth picking up a copy?

DOWNES BRAIDE ASSOCIATION (DBA)

Announce Additional Show at Trading Boundaries & reveal full band line-up. Live In England box set out 29th Nov
7th November 2019: Downes Braide Association (DBA) recently announced the release of Live In England a 2CD/DVD Box set on 29th November 2019 via Cherry Red Records. A double-vinyl edition will be released on 14th February. The album features stunning artwork by the legendary Roger Dean.
To coincide with the vinyl release of Live in England, DBA will be on stage once again at Trading Boundaries on 14th February. As the show is close to selling out, the band has added a second show on 15th February. These intimate gigs are totally unique. Joining Geoff Downes and Chris Braide this time around will be guitarist Dave Bainbridge (Iona, Lifesigns), together with bass player Andy Hodge and David Longdon (Big Big Train) and the show will again be narrated by Barney Ashton Bullock.
For full information and to book tickets please visit www.tradingboundariesmusic.com or contact the box office on 01825 790200
Live In England, the fourth album release by the duo Geoff Downes and Chris Braide, is their first live album, recorded at their first ever concert at Trading Boundaries, East Sussex, on 28th September 2108. Whilst DBA was conceived as a studio project, the concert was a great success and features material from the DBA albums Suburban Ghosts (2015) and Skyscraper Souls (2017) together with tracks from Geoff Downes’ time with Buggles and Asia.

The line-up for the Live In England album was the same as for the new live shows in Feb 2020 apart from featuring David Colquhoun on guitars.
Geoff Downes commented: “It was a most memorable evening, last September, at the iconic Trading Boundaries venue and we believe we have managed to capture the magic of the wholenight. Chris and I were supported by some amazing musicians – Andy Hodge, Dave Colquhoun, David Longdon and narrated by Barney Ashton Bullock. As well as songs from our albums we have added some extra special treats and we hope it gives a rare insight into the special songwriting and production relationship Chris and I have developed over the last decade on the journey that is DBA.“We sincerely hope you enjoy the music with us, from this very special occasion, in a raw and live setting, and we thank you for all your support.” Chris Braide says: “After many requests for DBA to perform live, Geoff and myself, along with the excellent musicianship of Andy Hodge, Dave Colquhoun, David Longdon and Barney Ashton Bullock, finally took to the stage for the first time at the stunning Trading Boundaries. It was a wonderful evening surrounded by friends and the beautiful English countryside and this live album is a great document of that magical evening and encapsulates what DBA is all about.”   The full track-listing is:
