From a time when Yes was West and ABWH – Episode 195

Yes Magazine
Yes Magazine Volume 2 Number 2

In the absence of the ‘happening’ I was expecting this week, I have looked at another of Carl Coppage’s brilliant Yes Magazine scans – this one from January 1990 when Trevor Rabin was leading ‘Yes West’ and ABWH were ebarking on a tour of the US.

  • What can we learn about Yes West vs. ABWH?
  • Did it look like ABWH would continue into a second album?
  • What about Rabin’s Yes West? Were there long-term plans? Did they have a singer?

Listen to the episode and then let me know what you think!
