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?

The album from White
The album from White

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

This week, we listen to a little-known album which should be better known to all Yes fans, White by the Alan White-led band, White. We also have time for the return of our two pence segment and we consider whether Jon Anderson should be concentrating on 1000 Hands or ARW…!

  • What is the White album like?
  • Why is it so obscure?
  • What’s the story of the band?

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?

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

Half Term Replay – 357

Leave It on 12 inch single
Leave It on 12 inch single

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

As it’s half term for me and my family this week, I dipped into the archives and found the episode I released almost exactly 5 years ago. It was recorded in my car as I travelled to Nottingham for work. It tells the story of finding a Leave It 12 inch single in a charity shop and includes my thoughts on the item. It’s a bit of a blast from the past!

  • Where did I come across this item?
  • Is it any good?
  • What was the point of 12 inch singles?
