Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius
I recently spoke to illustrator Colin Elgie, who was a freelance illustrator for legendary album art producers, Hipgnosis, for the whole of the 1970s. We chatted about his artwork for Tormato and I found out that he also produced some other Yes items you’ll recognise, along with other prog album covers. It was a great phone call and this week I explain to Mark what Colin said and we take a look at some of the artwork Colin and I discussed.
Then Mark tells us about some other vinyl albums which have interesting and/or unique inner contents. You’ll also have your favourites so please do add them in the comments below.
- What did Colin Elgie produce for Yes?
- What did he think of the Hipgnosis cover for Tormato?
- What other inner album contents are worth tracking down?
Take a listen to the episode and then let us know what you think below!

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: archive.org
