Sid Smith – Doyen of the Sleeve Note – 429

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

This week we blew away the lockdown cobwebs by means of a bracing conversation with the ever jovial and generous Sid Smith. Responsible for many Yes, King Crimson and other sleeve notes, he shared his approaches and told a story or two. It was a very enjoyable chat.

  • How do you get involved in writing sleeve notes?
  • Are all sleeve notes created equal?
  • What plans has Sid got for the future?

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

Theme music

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 the following two creative commons sources: thanvannispen and archive.org

What a great episode guys. It came across so clearly how immersed Sid is in his work and it sounds like it remains a labour of love. He had so much of interest to say and must have made your own jobs pretty easy this week !
