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

Remastered and Expanded ABWH

As we approach the 30th anniversary of ABWH, we go back to consider whether it’s actually a Jon Anderson solo record, as suggested by Stephen Lambe in his book, YES every album every song.

Also, Mark suggests a 2 pence topic on videos…

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • ABWH – is it Yes, is it a new band, is it an Anderson solo project?
  • How was the album written?
  • Should it now be regarded as part of Yes’ discography?
