I particularly enjoyed this segment, I have a hard time listening to Wonderous Stories as well. Awaken will always be my favorite.
Thanks Michael. It was an absolute pleasure to record!
Looking forward to listening to this one. Awaken is my favourite Yessong, and Wonderous Stories + Going For The One are right up there too.
I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for the comment!
Great analysis as usual. I feel fortunate to live somewhere where Wonderous Stories isn’t quite so overexposed 🙂
That must be good – thanks for the comment!
