Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier

It’s another week of normality, courtesy of the YMP. I hope you are well and coping with the current situation.

This week in a bit of a departure from the usual format, Mark and I took a look at some of the sleeve notes which come with Yes records, CDs and so on. We both choose our favourite 3 examples and talk quite a bit about the different kinds there have been through the years. There’s an invitation to suggest your own favourites on the show notes for this episode and also the news that we will be speaking to Sid Smith next week on the show. In case you are unaware, Sid recently updated his essential King Crimson book and is also the author of many essays for sleeve notes including the Steven Wilson Yes remixes. We are very much looking forward to that conversation.

  • What different styles of sleeve notes are included with Yes albums?
  • Which are the best?
  • Which are our favourites?

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

What did they do next part 12b – Eddie Jobson – 427

In the midst of the global emergency, we are back with more YMP in an attempt to help take your mind off everything at least for a short time.

This week, Mark and I have been listening to the Green Album by Eddie Jobson – as you’ll see it’s a great discovery.

We also enjoy a two pence suggestion about Yes medleys from Dave Watkinson and first, as usual, a short update from around the interwebs.

  • Has it stood the test of time?
  • What could Eddie have done with Yes if he had stayed?

What did they do next part 12a – Eddie Jobson – 426

In the UK we are coming to the end of the second week of total lock down and my friends and family are currently coping quite well thanks to the wonderful work of the NHS (including my wife, Sarah) and all the key workers. Thank you to each and every one of them.

As I said last week, we are aiming to ensure the YMP provides a bit of normality through this difficult time so this week we are perhaps bending the rules slightly to consider what Eddie Jobson did after leaving Yes.

We also have time for a two pence suggested by Fred Barringer.

  • Eddie Jobson? Why?
  • Why does Kevin not know anything about U.K?
  • Which album was Eddie working on before, during and after being a member of Yes?

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

Jon Anderson and The Warriors – The Lost Demos EP with Dave Watkinson 425

As John Lennon once sang – Strange Days Indeed. However, we aim for a little bit of normality here on the YMP.

This week Mark and I caught up with Dave Watkinson and had a great time talking about his debut as record producer. Jon Anderson and The Warriors – The Lost Demos EP is out on 7in vinyl now from Plane Groovy Recors and you can get your copy – if you are quick – at BurningShed.com.

  • What did Geoff Downes do between Yes and Asia?
  • Did he finish it?
  • Were Yes right to cancel their mini tour and their appearance at Cruise to the Edge?

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