White by White (Alan White, that, that is) – 367

The album from White
The album from White

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

This week, we listen to a little-known album which should be better known to all Yes fans, White by the Alan White-led band, White. We also have time for the return of our two pence segment and we consider whether Jon Anderson should be concentrating on 1000 Hands or ARW…!

  • What is the White album like?
  • Why is it so obscure?
  • What’s the story of the band?

Listen and let us know what you think!

Half Term Replay – 357

Leave It on 12 inch single
Leave It on 12 inch single

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

As it’s half term for me and my family this week, I dipped into the archives and found the episode I released almost exactly 5 years ago. It was recorded in my car as I travelled to Nottingham for work. It tells the story of finding a Leave It 12 inch single in a charity shop and includes my thoughts on the item. It’s a bit of a blast from the past!

  • Where did I come across this item?
  • Is it any good?
  • What was the point of 12 inch singles?

The last time Anderson, Howe, White, Squire and Wakeman played together – 351

Songs from Tsongas DVD

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

This week Mark and I have been considering Songs From Tsongas in order to re-live the last time Howe, White, Anderson and Wakeman were together on stage along with the late great Chris Squire. With the recent ARW and Yes live offerings perhaps only offering us part of the story, does Songs from Tsongas now seem like the full picture?

  • Was it better when the ‘classic’ lineup were with us?
  • How does the acoustic section come over?
  • How is the band interaction?

Neither Mark nor I were able to get to the YES50 FanFest in Philadelphia but we took part as well as we could remotely. This week we are reflecting on some of the performances and the general feel we picked up remotely. We also have a two pence about whether Yes are playing too often these days.

  • Which Yes men were there?
  • What was played?
  • Was it a worthwhile event?

Yes singles part 7 – Solo Album singles – 320

Solo Albums
Solo albums – yes I know there’s one missing.

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

In a detour, we talk about the singles from the Solo albums Yes members produced after Relayer. I couldn’t speak live to Mark this week due to work and family commitments but we still recorded our own thoughts.

  • Did all the solo albums produce a single?
  • Are all of them equally as effective?
  • Does Mark sing in this episode?
