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?
Listen to the episode then let us know what you think!
I recorded this episode early in the week shortly before the news of Prince’s death was announced. Another musical genius is gone. It’s turning into a terrible year for our heroes.
On the show, I have a chat with Mark Anthony K about Yes current obsession with playing whole albums live and we come to some conclusions…or maybe not…take a listen and then let us know what you think.
The ninety-sixth episode of the Yes Music Podcast, featuring highlights from the 2005 DVD, Songs from Tsongas – Yes 35th Anniversary Concert.
Listen and see if you agree with me, then let me know by contacting me via any of the different routes on the right hand side or by leaving a comment below!
Is this the classic line-up of the band?
What rarities are performed?
What are those illuminated globes hovering into view next to Alan White?
