What did they do next Part 4b – Rick Wakeman – 393

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

Here we are, back with part 2 or (b) of our look at what Rick Wakeman did next after the first time he left Yes. SO we’ve been listening to The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table!

Also, we take the opportunity to congratulate Yes on listening to episodes of the YMP and following our advice on the new album 😉

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • Is this record just excessive?
  • How does Wakeman integrate such huge forces into something coherent?
  • Has it stood the test of time?

Mark’s 1975 1st UK pressing. .the first pressing had an embossed cover (mainly the seal):

Mark’s 1975 US White Label Promo pressing. The cover is different in that it has a matte finish to it…whereas the UK had a gloss cover with the embossed seal….no embossing on the promo copy. Also this promo copy has the song titles on the back cover…which weren’t on the UK…and the centre label is obviously a white label variation:

Here’s Mark’s 2016 re-recorded version. This is totally new in every way:

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

The last time Anderson, Howe, White, Squire and Wakeman played together – 351

Songs from Tsongas DVD
Songs from Tsongas DVD

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

This week Mark and I have been considering Songs From Tsongas in order to re-live the last time Howe, White, Anderson and Wakeman were together on stage along with the late great Chris Squire. With the recent ARW and Yes live offerings perhaps only offering us part of the story, does Songs from Tsongas now seem like the full picture?

  • Was it better when the ‘classic’ lineup were with us?
  • How does the acoustic section come over?
  • How is the band interaction?

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

After thinking about Patrick Moraz last week, this week we’ve turned our attention to what happened after he left the band. Rick Wakeman returned and Going for the One was created. We listened to the studio recordings and the live recordings of the three Going for the One songs on Yesshows and discussed what happened when Yes changed once again.

There’s also time for a two pence segment on the newly-release YouTube video of the first full song from Yes featuring ARW’s forthcoming release – Live at the Apollo.

  • Wakeman returns – how does it go?
  • Are we back to progressive rock rather then the jazz-fusion influenced Relayer?
  • How do the new songs sound live?
