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:

  1. Kevin this is the most enthusiastic I’ve heard you about any of the Yes albums up to this point in the podcasts! 90125 might not have any heavyweight prog epics, but it’s great fun to listen to, and an exciting snapshot in time. I agree with you – thank goodness for Trevor Rabin!

  2. Still catching up with past podcasts. You mentioned earlier that “Wonderous Stories” was difficult to listen to because it was over played. Well here in the U.S. I would say the same about “Owner” – it seems to be the only Yessong on classic rock radio – in fact I just can’t listen to it anymore (especially when Steve plays it live). Cheers

    1. Shame. It’s a great song. I understand though… Pity radio doesn’t play classic stuff! There’s a lot to choose from… In fact, there’s an episode idae there, so thanks!
