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

This week I’ve been on holiday with the family so this episode will be a quick one. Mark and I have been listening to Asia’s first album on account of the upcoming Royal Affair Tour and more on all that in a few moments.

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • What does Steve Howe sound like?
  • Is this stuck in the 80s?
  • What will it sound like in 2019?

Jon Anderson’s 1000 Hands Part 1 – first listen – 374

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

1000 Hands Website
1000 Hands Website

This week Mark and I got our hands on 1000 hands – or at least our virtual hands as we received a review download copy. So we have pooled our initial reactions to the music and that’s coming up in a moment.

Also, we have a 2 pence on the Anderson final Yes project rumours so it’s an Anderson rich episode.

Listen and let us know what you think!

  • How does Anderson fit 1000 hands on one album?
  • Can you hear the special guests?
  • Does the collaboration between Anderson and Howe point towards Union II?

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

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?

YES FanFest – 50 True Summers – from a distance – 345

Ken Fuller’s programme!

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

Neither Mark nor I were able to get to the YES50 FanFest in Philadelphia but we took part as well as we could remotely. This week we are reflecting on some of the performances and the general feel we picked up remotely. We also have a two pence about whether Yes are playing too often these days.

  • Which Yes men were there?
  • What was played?
  • Was it a worthwhile event?

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