No episode this week

It’s half term this week so I’m spending time with the family and supporting my mum with preparations for my dad’s funeral on Monday. Mark and I will be back next week.

Many thanks,

Starship Trooper including 3 Wakemans – Wakemen?

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

Rick Wakeman
Just one of the Wakemen featured this week

This week I discovered something I didn’t know about Yes…wow! So as a result Mark and I listened to 3 different versions of Starship Trooper featuring not 2 but 3 different Wakemen!

Also, we approach a difficult 2 Pence about the quality of Yes performance on the recent Cruise to the Edge.

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • Did all three Wakemen really play for Yes?
  • What’s the Adam story?
  • Who played better?

Peter Banks-era Yes videos – 369

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

Peter Banks

After seeing Fernando Perdomo’s Peter Banks replica Yes guitar, we were inspired to watch some early Yes videos featuring the original guitarist.

We also find time for a quick 2 Pence on a single song we would both like to add to the Cruise to the Edge set list!

  • What is Peter Banks doing on stage?
  • Could he have continued with the band?
  • What did the other members think of him?

Listen and let us know what you think!

This week, Mark and I listened to a bootleg compilation from shows on the Open Your Eyes Tour. Igor, Billy and the rest of the band made a big impression as you’ll hear…

  • What is a 6-man line up like?
  • Can you hear Billy?
  • How does Igor compare to other Yes keyboardists?

Listen and let us know what you think!

White by White (Alan White, that, that is) – 367

The album from White
The album from White

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

This week, we listen to a little-known album which should be better known to all Yes fans, White by the Alan White-led band, White. We also have time for the return of our two pence segment and we consider whether Jon Anderson should be concentrating on 1000 Hands or ARW…!

  • What is the White album like?
  • Why is it so obscure?
  • What’s the story of the band?

Listen and let us know what you think!
