Yessongs the movie – 353

Yessongs - the movie
Yessongs – the movie

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

Yessongs the movie – a different beast to the album of the same name, this is an iconic record of the band arguably at their peak. This week, Mark and I watch the film on DVD/Blu-ray and see what we think from the vantage point of 2018. There’s also a Roger Dean/Yes 2 pence.

  • Does the visual aspect of Yessongs outweigh the dodgy audio?
  • How does the film stand the test of time?
  • How is the song selection?

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