Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller
The hugely knowledgeable Sid Smith joined us again this week to chat about the context of Tales from Topographic Oceans. Sid wrote the sleeve notes for the Steven Wilson remix of Tales which was released by Panegyric in 2016.
He also wrote the remarkable book, ‘In the Court of King Crimson – An Observation over Fifty Years’, so we were delighted to be able to ask him about the relationship between Crimson main man, Robert Fripp, and Bill Bruford.
- Why did Fripp want Bruford?
- Why did Yes decide to push the boundaries even further with Tales?
- How influential was the album?
Let us know if you agree with us!

Our (not really) new Facebook YMP Discussion Group is open to anyone to join but I’ll be adding rules and joining requirements when I have time (one day…). One of the advantages of the new format is that all members of the group have the same ability to post content, so it’s a bit more egalitarian, or somesuch. Please do search for the group and join in.
If you are still listening to the podcast on the website, please consider subscribing so you don’t risk missing anything:
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: archive.org
