Alan White Interview – Yes Live in 2020 – 417

Portrait of Alan White
Legendary drummer, Alan White

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

Mark and I have ticked off another of our top ambitions on the podcast by speaking to Yes drum legend, Alan White. We cover a number of different topics and Alan is absolutely delightful, as I’m sure you know.

For the first time in ages, I also managed to do a news catch-up which features a few highlights from around the social webs in recent days and/or weeks and do listen out for a couple of new items. I hope you enjoy the whole episode!

  • What did Alan think of From A Page?
  • What is Alan’s favourite Yes album??
  • What is Relayer going to be like to play live in 2020?
Alan White from the Ramshackled album

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

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

This week Mark and I begin to consider what happened when the band essentially split up a short time after the Drama Tour ended almost exactly 39 years ago in December 1980. So we have the chance to see what each member of the band did next and we’re starting with Alan White and Chris Squire.

  • What was XYZ?
  • Who was involved?
  • Where did Run With the Fox come from?

Jon Anderson’s 1000 Hands Part 1 – first listen – 374

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

1000 Hands Website
1000 Hands Website

This week Mark and I got our hands on 1000 hands – or at least our virtual hands as we received a review download copy. So we have pooled our initial reactions to the music and that’s coming up in a moment.

Also, we have a 2 pence on the Anderson final Yes project rumours so it’s an Anderson rich episode.

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • How does Anderson fit 1000 hands on one album?
  • Can you hear the special guests?
  • Does the collaboration between Anderson and Howe point towards Union II?

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?

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