Theme music

The music I use is the last movement of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite. This has been used as introduction music at many Yes concerts. My theme music is not take from a live concert – I put it together from the following two creative commons sources: thanvannispen and archive.org

No episode this week.

Hello! I’m currently enjoying some time away, celebrating my Silver Wedding Anniversary with my wife in sunny Mallorca. So Mark and I will return next week.

I hope your Summer (or whatever season you’re in) is going well. As Dave Watkinson would say, “Keep Yessing!”

The view from my current position…

What did they do next Part 4a – Rick Wakeman PLUS Dave Watkinson’s new Jon Anderson book! 391

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

In a slightly ‘bare bones’ episode, we start our look at the next man to leave the band, Rick Wakeman. What did he do next?

Also, we were delighted to welcome Dave Watkinson back onto the show to talk about his long-awaited new book about Jon Anderson’s time before Yes which also includes the earliest days of the world’s greatest progressive rock band. It sounds amazing!

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • What did Rick Wakeman do next and why?
  • Is Rick the definition of Prog excess?
  • When will we get to see Dave’s new Jon Anderson and The Warriors book?

Dave Watkinson’s Jon Anderson book update

Yes and Jon Anderson fans:

I have some good and exciting news about my forthcoming book, Jon Anderson and The Warriors – The Road to Yes.

With a recent publisher change to www.sonicbondpublishing.com the release date is expected to be around October 2019.

The first special limited-edition book will ONLY be available from www.burningshed.com however, it is NOT quite ready to order yet!

The limited number (250 worldwide) hardback edition with dust jacket will come signed by the author.

The book tells the story of Jon Anderson’s journey from Lancashire England with his first ever band The Warriors to the start of Yes in 1968.

It includes new interviews with Jon and the band members, a family tree, rare and never-before-seen photographs of both The Warriors and Yes, tour dates, memorabilia and a collectables section. This is the most complete book on these early exciting and crazy years.

Supported by a web page that will go live on the day of release. This features their UK tour dates from 1960 – 66, including notations and more, coming from the original band members diaries.

More details to follow on when the book can be ordered. NOT AVAILABLE YET.

2020 will see a paperback version available.

A thrilling bonus for 2020, the recently discovered unreleased demo tracks by The Warriors will also be released. These are the earliest known recordings of Jon performing.

All the best

Mark’s 1975 1st UK pressing. .the first pressing had an embossed cover (mainly the seal):

Mark’s 1975 US White Label Promo pressing. The cover is different in that it has a matte finish to it…whereas the UK had a gloss cover with the embossed seal….no embossing on the promo copy. Also this promo copy has the song titles on the back cover…which weren’t on the UK…and the centre label is obviously a white label variation:

Here’s Mark’s 2016 re-recorded version. This is totally new in every way:

Gates of Delirium Live Plus Tim Morse! 390

Gates and Tim Morse's Yesstories
Gates and Tim Morse’s Yesstories

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

This week we have a slightly different format to the episode. Mark and I enjoyed listening to three different live versions of Gates of Derilium a few weeks ago but we didn’t get around to posting our thoughts – so that’s what you’ll hear first.

Then, we did a great interview with Yes book author, Tim Morse, this week for the Patreon community and I wanted to include some of that here because Tim once collaborated with Jon Anderson and also recently released his third solo album so there’s plenty to learn about him.

So I’ve clipped out a few parts of our conversation to play here and if you want to see the complete video of our chat, complete with various drinking vessels and Tim’s cat, you need to head over to Patreon. If you are already a patron, it’s all there for you and if you have yet to join in, you can do that at the same time.

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • What do different performances of Gates sound like?
  • What Jon Anderson piece did Tim Morse work on?
  • Is Tim going to update his great book, Yesstories?
