Mark speaks to Yes mastering wizard, Maor Appelbaum – 496

Produced by Wayne Hall, Jeffrey Crecelius and Preston Frazier

This week Mark speaks to one of the unsung heroes of Yes’ recent releases (going back to the Like It Is live series), Maor Appelbaum. If, like me, you haven’t a clue what a Timbre Farm is or what difference a Saturator/Clipper makes to the sound of a record, then you’re in for a treat.

It’s a fascinating and in-depth conversation, so many thanks to Mark and Maor for making this happen.

  • What IS mastering?
  • Which Yes records has Maor worked on?
  • How do you make a recording sound as good as possible?

Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!

Yes not Yes – an official Yes playlist part 2 – 495

Produced by Wayne Hall, Jeffrey Crecelius and Preston Frazier

This week Mark and I finish off our investigation of some of the interesting songs from the Yes official Spotify playlist, Yes not Yes.

We listen to 6 of the songs we didn’t know and we hear from listeners who left comments filling in details on some of the others. It was great fun and I think we both learned a lot.

  • What did we learn from listeners and other sources?
  • Are all the contributions worthwhile?
  • How long would the Yes family tree of contributions be?

Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!

From Nicolas Moyart:

To follow up on Balavoine Moraz collaboration  on one song. On Discogs website, there is a picture of them together on the inner sleeve of the LP version.

Yes not Yes – an official Yes playlist part 1 – 494

Produced by Wayne Hall, Jeffrey Crecelius and Preston Frazier

This week has been a little quieter in the land of social media and conspiracy theories – at least for Yes. So Mark and I decided to go through a Spotify playlist created by Yes official which is called Yes Not Yes. It includes lots of music which Yes members and alumni have been involved with over the years and it’s a very interesting collection. Take a listen to what Mark and I have to say about the selection and then add a comment to the show notes for this episode to tell us what you know about the music that we clearly don’t!

  • Which Yes members are included?
  • Do you know who plays on every song?
  • Are there any musicians missing?

Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!

Ice Bridge Gate – 493

Produced by Wayne Hall, Jeffrey Crecelius and Preston Frazier

I’m officially on leave but Mark and I had to comment on the storm around Ice Bridge Gate this week.

If you haven’t been on social media for some time you may have missed what happened so we aim to bring you up-to-speed on all the tortuous twists in this tale.

  • Who wrote The Ice Bridge?
  • Where did it come from?
  • Why is a very similar tune on a 1980 film and Sale of the Century?

Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!
