In a week which was supposed to be a holiday for me, we actually managed to speak to Tom Brislin about his new band The Sea Within as well as about #YES50. Mark reviewed the self-titled album and we then got together to compare notes. Phew!

  • Is this the new sound of prog?
  • How are the guests involved?
  • What is Tom going to do in YES50??

Mark and I have finally both received our remarkable box sets of the deluxe edition of Chris Squire’s progressive masterpiece, Fish Out Of Water. It’s an expansive set so we get stuck into as much of it as we can this week.

  • What is in that really heavy box?
  • How does the new mix sound?

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!

 

  • What was going on in the band and with album releases?
  • Were there any singles?
  • Was this the most confused period of the band’s history?

Yes singles part 15 – Talk – 334

Talk, Talk
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?

Union - 8 Yes Men in harmony?
Union – 8 Yes Men in harmony?

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

What was going on with Union? It’s a question which has baffled fans and riled members of the band ever since the record was released. This week, we take a look at the singles from Union and talk a bit about the politics as well. There’s also a contentious 2 pence about the forthcoming Steven Wilson mixes box set so get your commenting fingers ready!

  • Who is playing what on this album?
  • Does anyone know?
  • Does anyone care?

ABWH in all its wonderful variety

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

Depending on your point of view, this week we take a detour from Yes – or not. It’s time to look at Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe and the singles from that self-titled album. There are plenty of variations to consider and we also have time to think a bit about Lee Pomeroy and ARW as well.

  • Is this Yes?
  • Does it matter?
  • What were the singles like?

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

Big Generator took a long time to create but, fear not, this episode isn’t quite as long as that process was. We look at the singles generated by Big Generator and we also consider what extras might be included on new studio albums today.

  • Was Big Generator as good as 90125?
  • What about the singles?
  • Is this more like Yes music?

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

We are finally back to the YEs singles series and we have reached 90125. It’s an amazing set of singles plus a plethora of different versions and remixes. We also have a chance to reflect on the YES Featuring ARW 50th Anniversary announcements – wow – it’s quite an episode.

  • Why are the 90125 singles so good?
  • What would Cinema have been like as a band?
  • 12 inch dance remixes – what was the idea?
