Funny I remember when this was released a friend had it so I remember listing to it and thinking wow completely different without Jon Anderson for sure. I really liked the Leave it but I have always been a huge fan of vocals so it served me well to here each member contribute even Alan White.I must say I’m still holding my gut over the comment about “Poodle hair Rock” wow so true and I was a adult in the 80’s that’s bad…but so so true.I’m going to have to really think about the fantasy line up thing I hope that was or is a good rumor you heard about Rabin and Anderson Wakeman I just hope if it is B.B he leaves his drum kit at home and just brings a snare,tom and bass with some symbols much more true to his art.
Okay I will start to to put my fantasy line up together it will be tough for me but Like the home work .
Talk to you soon

I remember popping this newly remastered and expanded 90125 in the CD player in my car and being completely blown away by the songs all over again. Especially Hold On, It Can Happen and Changes. They all took on a whole new sound for me.

Love what you are doing with the podcasts, Sir Kevin… I wait with baited breath for the new episode each week. I am thinking that you should touch on the mulitple project of the Yesmen going on for 2012…. Maybe read up a bit on Squackett (Chris Squire and Steve Hackett) and their debut CD titled LIFE WITHIN A DAY, Trevor’s new solo disc JACARANDA and of course current Yesfolk Geoffrey and Steve’s lastest Asia opus XXX. Especially since no new Yes CD appears to be on the horizon as I type this.

An exciting year for Yes fans as I am sure we can all agree.

Through fields of green, through open eyes,

Thanks so much, Scott. I am excited that you are enjoying the podcast – please keep listening!
