What did they do next part 12b – Eddie Jobson – 427

In the midst of the global emergency, we are back with more YMP in an attempt to help take your mind off everything at least for a short time.

This week, Mark and I have been listening to the Green Album by Eddie Jobson – as you’ll see it’s a great discovery.

We also enjoy a two pence suggestion about Yes medleys from Dave Watkinson and first, as usual, a short update from around the interwebs.

Theme music

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 the following two creative commons sources: thanvannispen and

Glad you both enjoyed the album. It’s been a top favorite of mine since it was released. I played it regularly on my radio shows in the 80s. FYI, I’ve posted photos of my copies of the album on your Facebook page. I don’t do Twitter.

Maybe it’s just me, but I found it amusing that immediately after the discussion on medleys you played a medley by our friend Miguel. . Deliberate?

I have to say that I had a smirk at that. Planned or not I still dont have anyone backing one, well I like them, so there. 🙂

…and then, when the band went on tour in support of 90125, they decided they needed that additional keyboard player after all. I submit the idea that Casey Young contributed more to the band, musically, than Mr. Jobson… now, there’s a “What Did They Do Next?” subject for you!

Thank you for including Eddie Jobson. Somehow I missed out with hearing this album over the years. Usually I just listen to an album once before listening to the Part B episode but this one was four times. A remarkable album!

Eddie was a real revelation for me – I knew about him of course but the Green album is so much better than I was expecting. Thanks for the comment!
