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:

You were actually impressed with the production of Fly From Here? With the burial of Alan White’s drums, and the playing of guest musicians in his stead, and Steve Howe’s incompetence in certain places (by no means all, still over-all a fantastic guitarist), and the cheapening quality of the sound period? Now that all the Buggles/Drama nostalgia’s out of the way, get Trevor Horn as far away from Yes as possible! Put them in touch with Eddy Offord, the producer of their 70’s masterpeices; he just came out of retirement.

Thanks for the comment. As Yes fans, we are destined never to agree on everything! I have been listening carefully to Fly From Here after your comment and I still do really like the production. I can see what you mean about Steve Howe who does seem to have a few moments of uncertainty but I think the drum sound is fine. Like you, I’d love to see Eddy Offord back – no doubt he would again produce something amazing. Likewise I would love to see Anderson, Wakeman etc. back…

Thanks again!
