What did they do next part 5a – Patrick Moraz – 395

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

This week Mark and I are starting our look at what the next musician to leave the group got up to next so we will be discussing Patrick Moraz a little later on.

Also, Jon Anderson has released the first chapter of his memoires this week so Mark and I have a chat about that in our two pence segment.

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • What did Moraz do next?
  • Was it in the same style as Story of I?
  • Is Anderson’s autobiography going to be any good?

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

Olias of Sunhillow Live – 377

Olias of Sunhillow by Jon Anderson
Olias of Sunhillow by Jon Anderson

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

With Jon Anderson playing two songs from Olias of Sunhillow live on his 1000 Hands Tour, we felt it was time to watch/listen to some recordings of Olias material from through the years. This is music which has not been performed very often – and we think it should have been.

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • What Olias songs are being performed live in 2019?
  • How does the band configuration work?
  • What about older recordings?

Was Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe nothing more than an enhanced Jon Anderson solo record? 375

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

Remastered and Expanded ABWH
Remastered and Expanded ABWH

As we approach the 30th anniversary of ABWH, we go back to consider whether it’s actually a Jon Anderson solo record, as suggested by Stephen Lambe in his book, YES every album every song.

Also, Mark suggests a 2 pence topic on videos…

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • ABWH – is it Yes, is it a new band, is it an Anderson solo project?
  • How was the album written?
  • Should it now be regarded as part of Yes’ discography?

Jon Anderson’s 1000 Hands Part 1 – first listen – 374

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

1000 Hands Website
1000 Hands Website

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?

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • What was ‘Open’
  • How did I miss the release?
  • What’s the music like?
