Mark and I are back this week with the second part of our look at the World Trade album Euphoria in our what did they do next series this time featuring Billy Sherwood.

We also have a chance to give our two pence on a topic which compares Roger Dean’s approach to that of Yes themselves. I hope you find all that interesting.

  • What is Euphoria like?
  • How does Jay Schellen sound?
  • Does this sound like Open Your Eyes?

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

Open Your Eyes Tour Poster
Open Your Eyes Tour Poster

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

This week, Mark and I listened to a bootleg compilation from shows on the Open Your Eyes Tour. Igor, Billy and the rest of the band made a big impression as you’ll hear…

  • What is a 6-man line up like?
  • Can you hear Billy?
  • How does Igor compare to other Yes keyboardists?

Listen and let us know what you think!

Billy Sherwood’s A Life in Yes Chris Squire Tribute Album – 360

A Life in Yes
A Life in Yes

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

This week we listen to Billy Sherwood’s excellent Chris Squire Tribute album, A life in Yes. We also discuss what Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman could have brought to that album if things had been very different – which is a topic suggested by Steven Shinder and not Daniel Krohn as I say later on in the episode – sorry Steven.

  • Who is on this collection?
  • How do the versions sound?
  • Is it a fitting tribute to Chris Squire?

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