Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius
This week’s episode once again features our resident walking vinyl encyclopedia, Mark but this time I have a chance to pick his brains about the murky world of deadwax.
As you might imagine, I get out a couple of my copies of Tormato to see what I can find in the deadwax areas of those and Mark shares some fascinating insights into the production of Yes vinyl records.
Doug Curran also sent in an example of one of his Yes rarities for us to decipher and it was a real geek-fest!
- What are acetates, test pressings and deadwax?
- Why do Yes records have information hidden in the vinyl?
- Is any of this any use? (Spoiler – yes it is.)
Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!

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: archive.org
