Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius
It’s time to enjoy listening to The Lexicon Of Love this week as we look for clues as to why Yes wanted Trevor Horn to return as producer for 90125. To be fair, that’s not an especially difficult task as his fingerprints are all over this brilliant, era-defining work of pop genius. It’s not prog but it’s glorious music.
- What Trevor Horn influences can be heard on this album?
- Is the production any good?
- Is it obvious why Yes wanted Trevor back?
Also, it’s time to wish all listeners, Producers and Patrons all best wishes at this festive time of year. Whatever you celebrate in December or even if you don’t celebrate anything Mark and I hope you have a wonderful time as the year changes to 2023. Thank you for all your support and kindness in 2022!

Facebook has just changed how pages work which means that I’ve had to establish a new place for us to post and discuss Yes-related happenings. It’s a new group entitled, rather creatively, YMP Discussion Group. For the moment it’s open to anyone to join but I’ll be adding rules and joining requirements when I have time. 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 haven’t already done so, please sign up at tormatobook.com to the email newsletter. PRESALE IS UNDERWAY (for subscribers only)! If you sign up now, for free, you can have access to the newsletters you’ve missed. It really helps to know people are looking forward to reading the culmination of my decades of Tormato obsession.

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
