Fish Out Of Water Deluxe Edition - singles
Fish Out Of Water Deluxe Edition – singles

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?

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

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?

Steve Nardelli talks about Chris Squire, Peter Banks, The Syn and Syndestructible – 362

Syndestructible

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

In our somewhat delayed episode, Mark and I speak to The Syn front man, Steve Nardelli this week. It was an amazing conversation which delved deeply into all parts of The Syn’s story including a residency at The Marquee Club, supporting Jimi Hendrix,  inventing the Rock Opera, trying to get Chris Squire to turn up to gigs on time and the influence of Peter Banks amongst many other topics.

Also this week, I announce the dramatic changes to the Yes Music Podcast which are planned for 2019. You can’t afford to miss this information. Next year is going to be very special.

  • What were Chris Squire and Peter Banks like to work with?
  • Which Welsh icon was kind to the band?
  • Why couldn’t The Syn get out of their dressing room on the night Jimi Hendrix came to town?

Listen to the episode then 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!

Time and a Word

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

While we wait for the German version re-issue of Time and a Word on Record Store Day Black Friday, we decided to listen again to the original record and choose our favourite songs. We also muse on the recent trend of private pressings in our 2 pence segment.

  • What 3 singles did we choose?
  • What can we tell about Jon Anderson’s solo work?
  • Are there any clues to 1000 Hands?
