Yes singles part 19 – Fly From Here – 342

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

We consider the singles (if any) from Fly From Here this week and talk about this difficult time in the band’s history – a bit. There’s also a Two Pence segment where Mark is disappointed with his latest Pledge Music acquisition…

  • Were there any singles from Fly From Here?
  • Why was Oliver Wakeman not on this album?
  • Was Trevor Horn an asset or too controlling?

Lobate Scarp’s new album, ‘Time and Space’ – Yes Music Podcast

[slideshow_deploy id=’1431′]

Time and Space – a progressive space-opera rock odyssey

Adam Sears from Lobate Scarp was kind enough to send me the items you can see above all the way from the US. I was delighted to receive them.

The CD package has a great, full-colour booklet inside with photographs, lyrics, acknowledgements and even a proper explanation of the band name with illustration!

As you can see, the band members have even signed this copy so I feel very special!

Why not get yourself a copy of the physical CD? The music is excellent and holding the package in your hand is a delight.

Thanks so much, Adam!
