Episode 62 – Start as you mean to go on?

Openings then and now…

The sixty-second episode of the Yes Music Podcast featuring the opening tracks of all the studio albums’.

Listen and see if all you agree with my assessment of the way in which each album begins, then let me know by contacting me via any of the different routes on the right hand side or by leaving a comment below!

  • Does the band use the same approach to all opening tracks?
  • Does the opening track always set the scene for the rest of the album?
  • Are all opening tracks equally as successful?
