What did the Talk songs sound like live? – 628

Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller

This week, Mark and I take our cue from the recent announcement of the Talk deluxe box set to be released at the end of this month. It contains a live recording of a 1994 concert in Canandaigua, New York (interestingly seemingly misspelt on the adverts) that includes 5 songs from the recently released album. So we were wondering how the latest songs sounded in 1994 in a live setting.

The best bootleg available up to now has been the TV broadcast from Santiago in Chile during the fairly short South American Tour of 1994. Mark owns a DVD of the show but it’s available to everyone, including me, on YouTube and the version I have included below is the whole of the broadcast version including interviews with the band and behind the scenes footage. It’s well worth a watch in full.

Mark and I focussed on just the Talk songs for this discussion, however, and there’s plenty to enjoy, as you might imagine. This lineup of the band included Billy Sherwood in his first stint and benefits from his singing, guitar playing, keyboards, bass and assorted percussion. He is, as I’m sure you know, a man of many parts. See if you agree with our assessment of the Talk songs from this performance.

  • Was it possible to replicate all the studio trickery live?
  • Are the band in synch?
  • How did the audience react?

Let us know if you agree with us!

Well, here we are at episode 400 and as a result we are going to break the structure of the episode for one week only because we have 2 major pieces of content for you – an interview with a certain musician you will certainly recognise (OK, it’s our own, Billy Sherwood!) and then our epic 400th episode quiz to win a ridiculous number of Yes and Yes related items.

Yes singles part 15 – Talk – 334

Talk, Talk
Talk, Talk

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

We’ve reached Talk in our survey of Yes singles. It’s a fairly sketchy picture but we know there was at least one single from this great album and possibly a couple more – as usual if you have copies of these singles, please do leave a comment int eh show notes!

In our Two pence segment we also have a chance to think about whether Yes have released too many live albums.

  • Was Talk a Trevor Rabin solo album?
  • What were the singles?
  • Was this album progressive?
