Don't Kill The Whale
Don’t Kill The Whale

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

We have reached 1978’s Tormato in our survey of Yes singles which means listening to Don’t Kill the Whale and couple of other songs.

There’s also news of Yes’ contribution to Record Store Day which has prompted a Two Pence section and there’s a rising sense of excitement about #YES50!

  • Was Don’t Kill The Whale the only single from Tormato?
  • Is this really an irredeemably bad album?
  • What are Yes thinking releasing ‘that’ album as a picture disc for Record Store Day?

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