This week Mark and I have had a great time re-watching 3 videos from the Going For The One era. As you may know, there is an extensive behind-the-scenes film of what went on at Mountain Studios in Montreux in 1976 and I was wondering if the feel of that process was evident in the following tour. So Mark suggested the film of Glasgow on that tour and I added the mash-up of the title song which takes film footage from several different concerts and matches it to a good quality soundtrack.
All 3 videos are embedded below. You might want to watch them before listening to us discuss our reactions.
- What was the mood like when Yes were recording Going For The One in Switzerland?
- Did the melodica trio end up on the album or not?
- Why did Rick Wakeman take his shoes and socks off in Glasgow and what did he do next?
Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!

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: archive.org
One reply on “Going For The One in the studio and live – 510”
Great to revisit the ‘Going for the One’ sessions once more. Thanks for highlighting some of the interesting and quirky points from the video footage. Regarding the 1977 Glasgow show, the person who should be credited for all that phenomenal work in editing together footage and photos, and painstakingly syncing the visuals with the best sound sources, is acoustic engineer Hed Gilboa. Several YouTube channels have simply recycled his labours without properly acknowledging and crediting them – including the one that you have embedded, it seems. The original, plus other great Yes videos, can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCR1JtXA_APsMFemvKFvCxFQ/videos Thank you Hed (https://www.hedgilboasound.com), and thank you YMP, of course.
