Time And A Word vs. Magnification – 474

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall and Preston Frazier

Unusually for recent weeks, it’s just Mark and me this week having some fun considering the relative merits of TAAW and Magnification. Quite a distance apart in time but linked by some pretty obvious themes as we shall see later. Do give us your opinions on these albums via your comments in the show notes below.

  • Which album uses the orchestra better?
  • Which one is more progressive?
  • Why did Yes try out orchestra here?

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

Bob Cesca and Tim Panella talk about working with Yes and we unveil a never-before-heard Yes song!

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall and Preston Frazier

It’s been quite a week. Mark and I managed to scoop an amazing world exclusive thanks to Bob Cesca and Tim Panella. They joined us to talk about the period in which they both worked with Yes on remixes, artwork, videography and more. We discovered not only untold stories but also Yes music which has never been heard in public before, 20 years after it was recorded by Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, Alan White and Steve Howe.

Listen out for the full, fascinating conversation as well as some undiscovered Yes music.

  • Why has some Yes music not seen the light of day for 20 years?
  • What did Bob and Tim get up to with Yes?
  • Was it a positive experience?
