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:

Awesome Show as always Kevin I do not posses this DVD yet but I think its something I have to have.I have seen all of it on you tube however its just not the same.I would love to see them or this line up do all acoustic versions of Tales,Close to the edge,Going for the one,Yours is no disgrace,on and on I mean ye all know what a wonderful event this would be and I think we should start a petition for the bands 50th anniversary show I bet if they played like 1200 seat theaters they would pack them in and how awesome would that be to sit and listen to them and the story telling about each song If their is any band that could pull this off we all know it to be YES!!!
Enjoy your holiday and I can’t wait for next week’s show
Best Regards

Hi Paul. Sorry to take so long to reply – as you know I’ve been on holiday.

Sounds like a brilliant idea for the 50th anniversary – I for one would be there! Acoustic versions of more songs would be fascinating but I wonder if it would only work with this line-up – and the chances of that happening seem remote at the moment!

Thanks for the comment as always!
