Rewind 10 years! (Be kind!) – 529

It’s a Bank Holiday and then Easter here in the UK so there’s been no time for a new episode this week. However, we are in the fortunate position to be able to look back 10 years and play a repeat from April 2012… This was really early in the development of the YMP so things were a bit different.

The topic is just as relevant and interesting today, though, so let me know what you think of this blast from the past!

Oliver Wakeman talks about Yes and his recent box set – Collaborations – 528

Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius

First of all, many thanks to Dan and Steven Shinder for last week’s April Fool swap around – it was great fun and we look forward to doing some more sensible Yes conversations in the future.

Oliver Wakeman is always one of our favourite guests on the YMP and this time we talk about Yes and his latest release – the Collaborations box set which is available from Burning Shed. It’s another engaging and insightful chat so do let us know what you think.

  • What’s in Oliver’s new box set?
  • What would Oliver want to play if he returned to Yes?
  • What does Oliver think of the change from Relayer Live to Close To The Edge Live?

Take a listen to the episode and then let us know what you think below!

Dave Watkinson is back to tell us all about Yes concert opening music – 526

Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius

It was great to speak to Dave Watkinson once again on the show this week. Some time ago he published an article on Yesworld.com all about the variety of music Yes have used to open their shows over 50 years and more. Mark and I very much enjoyed finding out more from Dave and here is the article – http://yesworld.com/yesshows-the-opening-music/yes-opening-music-year-guide/ 

After that conversation, there is a contribution from Daniel and Amanda Krohn with a different spin on the change from Relayer to Close to the Edge on the upcoming tour – do stay tuned for that.

  • What kinds of music have been played before and after Yes shows?
  • Isn’t it always The Firebird?
  • Have the band ever played their own music as an introduction?

Take a listen to the episode and then let us know what you think below!

“They were cosplaying with these new sounds” – Steve Howe’s guitars on Tormato with Fernando Perdomo – 525

Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius

Mark and I just about manage to stay in control of the ‘spirited’ Fernando Perdomo this week. Ask him about guitar tech and he will literally talk for hours – which is exactly what we want on the YMP of course. What we were left with are many fascinating insights into Steve Howe’s guitars and approaches, all based around the greatest Yes album, Tormato. Stay tuned for that hurricane of enthusiasm.

  • How did Howe get those sounds for Tormato and why?
  • Where is the steel guitar?
  • What are the secrets to his guitar approach?
