YES FanFest – 50 True Summers – from a distance – 345

Ken Fuller’s programme!

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

Neither Mark nor I were able to get to the YES50 FanFest in Philadelphia but we took part as well as we could remotely. This week we are reflecting on some of the performances and the general feel we picked up remotely. We also have a two pence about whether Yes are playing too often these days.

  • Which Yes men were there?
  • What was played?
  • Was it a worthwhile event?

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

Depending on your point of view, this week we take a detour from Yes – or not. It’s time to look at Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe and the singles from that self-titled album. There are plenty of variations to consider and we also have time to think a bit about Lee Pomeroy and ARW as well.

  • Is this Yes?
  • Does it matter?
  • What were the singles like?

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

It’s Drama this week which fits in well with the forthcoming launch of Fly From Here – Return Trip at the #YES50 Fan Convention in London next week. Mark and I also get to bang on about the set list for the first two concerts of the #YES50 tour and there is a huge amount of news!

  • How does Into the Lens works as a single?
  • Was it the only single from Drama?
  • What was the B side?

Survival – Beat Club 1969

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

I didn’t get to see Rick Wakeman this week, due to a family emergency but we still managed to think about Survival and how it’s been performed over the years. We watch the videos embedded below and then we consider who might also join Yes on stage for #YES50 next year in our 2 pence segment.

  • How was Survival performed back in 1969?
  • How frequently has it appeared in set-lists since then?
  • Is it a good song?

Geoff Downes on DBA3 – Skyscraper Souls – 306

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

We managed to speak to Geoff Downes about his other new release – The Downes Braide Association’s DBA3 – Skyscraper Souls. Mark and I go into a lot of detail about the album and then ask Geoff some questions about its construction and influences.

There’s also time for a rather mischievous Yes and ARW 2 pence so something for everyone, we hope!

  • Is this DBA album a continuation of or a revolution from the last?
  • Did Geoff ever meet any of the contributors?
  • What is the writing process like?
