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?

Going For The One and its singles
Going For The One and its singles

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

We have reached Going For The One in our grand progress through the Yes singles so we listen to Wonderous Stories, Going For The One and their respective B sides as well as mentioning a few oddities!

The Two Pence section focuses on the new Trevor Horn re-working of Fly From Here – Return Trip which has us both quite excited.

  • Did the band deliberately write singles for Going For The One?
  • Is Wonderous Stories the perfect Yes single?
  • Are Awaken or Parallels really B sides?

The iconic album

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

Close To The Edge is, for most fans and commentators, the pinnacle of progressive rock music but did it have as much success in single format? We discuss this and also the recent picture shared by Billy Sherwood of a post-Yes-rehearsal meal…

  • What were the singles from Close To The Edge?
  • How did they compare to previous efforts?
  • Was there a UK single this time?

Yes singles part 4 – Fragile – 317

Fragile
Fragile produced just one single – Roundabout

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

Fragile elevated the band further than ever before. Rick Wakeman joined and Roger Dean provided the iconic artwork. The single was Roundabout – perhaps ‘the’ classic song. We also have a 2 pence about ARW’s plans for a huge 50th Anniversary concert…

  • How does the edited version of Roundabout work?
  • What does Rick Wakeman add?
  • No UK single?
