Unfortunately, both I and Mark have been a bit under the weather this week but we recovered in time to listen to two classic Yes albums and record our thoughts. There’s also time for a few thoughts about Jon Anderson’s new very controversial song!

  • How do these two albums compare?
  • What changed between them?
  • What is Jon Anderson up to now?

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

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

Going for the One on Yesshows – 349

Going for the One and Yesshows
href=”https://scontent-lga3-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/bc0192bb7a400f4e28cfd91c5573b628/5C03C290/t51.2885-15/e35/39086360_273719986786904_8323578536299945258_n.jpg”> Going for the One and Yesshows[/c

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

After thinking about Patrick Moraz last week, this week we’ve turned our attention to what happened after he left the band. Rick Wakeman returned and Going for the One was created. We listened to the studio recordings and the live recordings of the three Going for the One songs on Yesshows and discussed what happened when Yes changed once again.

There’s also time for a two pence segment on the newly-release YouTube video of the first full song from Yes featuring ARW’s forthcoming release – Live at the Apollo.

  • Wakeman returns – how does it go?
  • Are we back to progressive rock rather then the jazz-fusion influenced Relayer?
  • How do the new songs sound live?

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

Yes singles part 8 – Going For The One – 322

Going For The One and its singles
Going For The One and its singles

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

We have reached Going For The One in our grand progress through the Yes singles so we listen to Wonderous Stories, Going For The One and their respective B sides as well as mentioning a few oddities!

The Two Pence section focuses on the new Trevor Horn re-working of Fly From Here – Return Trip which has us both quite excited.

  • Did the band deliberately write singles for Going For The One?
  • Is Wonderous Stories the perfect Yes single?
  • Are Awaken or Parallels really B sides?

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