Stephen Lambe and David Watkinson – YES in the 1980s – 509

Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius

As always, it was sheer delight to welcome Stephen Lambe and David Watkinson back onto the show this week to talk about their latest collaboration, YES in the 1980s.

It’s a great book which goes into detail about the often tortuous journey of the band in the decade of excess. Solo albums and other groups closely associated with Yes are included in a volume which boasts 2 sets of full-colour photos as well as countless other illustrations, a lot of which are presented in printed format for the first time.

A must for all serious Yes fans (particularly the five per cent), the book is available now from Burning Shed at the link below.

  • Why write a book about the decade which could – or should – have killed off progressive rock?
  • What hidden stories are uncovered?
  • What untaken paths would the authors like to have see Yes take in the 80s?

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

Who were Cinema? Dave Watkinson and Jon Dee tell the story… 418

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

Dave and Jon
Dave and Jon meet up before attending the Cinema rehearsal

You’ll be amazed by the story we are told by Jon Dee and Dave Watkinson this week. They were the only people beyond the inner circle of the band to hear Cinema in their original format, shortly before the band morphed into the Yes of 90125.

We had such a brilliant time hearing all about it this week!

  • Who were Cinema?
  • How did Jon and Dave come to be there at a rehearsal?
  • How and why did the band change their name to Yes?

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