Stephen Lambe and David Watkinson – YES in the 1980s – 509

Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius

As always, it was sheer delight to welcome Stephen Lambe and David Watkinson back onto the show this week to talk about their latest collaboration, YES in the 1980s.

It’s a great book which goes into detail about the often tortuous journey of the band in the decade of excess. Solo albums and other groups closely associated with Yes are included in a volume which boasts 2 sets of full-colour photos as well as countless other illustrations, a lot of which are presented in printed format for the first time.

A must for all serious Yes fans (particularly the five per cent), the book is available now from Burning Shed at the link below.

  • Why write a book about the decade which could – or should – have killed off progressive rock?
  • What hidden stories are uncovered?
  • What untaken paths would the authors like to have see Yes take in the 80s?

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

What If…Rick Wakeman had joined Yes before The Yes Album? 463

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

This is our first episode in the YMP’s 10th Anniversary year and it’s a real epic. I asked Patrons and a few others for their contributions to this week’s topic and the response was amazing. So this is another episode you might want to listen to in parts. It may well be the longest episode ever but I also think you’ll really enjoy hearing everyone’s thoughts on Rick Wakeman and The Yes Album. Incidentally, if you sent me a contribution but I haven’t included it, please do let me know and I’ll apologise and add it to next week’s show.

  • Was this the right time for Rick Wakeman to join Yes?
  • Was Tony Kaye’s style not right for the band?
  • How different would it have sounded if Wakeman had been there?

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