  • What are these versions of ELP songs like?
  • Which Yes men are included?
  • How does Igor come over?

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

Igor was a great player…love his work on The Ladder and the new sounds and ideas he brought to material like Perpetual Change on tour. BUT, I gotta laugh at the suggestion that YES hire him back, knowing the offense he committed, the line he crossed. That could have been a threat to the YES brand more than any vocalist line-up changes LOL. Also, given Steve’s ability to hold a grudge, I think you’d sooner see the ghosts of Peter & Chris on stage with YES before Igor. It is a fun fantasy to think of what he’d bring to the entire Relayer concert, Sound Chaser in particular, but it’s only a fantasy.

Glad you did a show regarding this album. It’s fantastic & I highly recommend it for any fans of ELP or of the musicians on it, such as Igor, Geoff, Rudess, Wetton, Portnoy, Berry & others. I got it on release & had Jordan & Berry sign it for me. Robert Berry is a wonderful producer, along with a very talented musician.
Now, you should review the Magna Carta Yes tribute, ‘Tales from Yesterday’ next if you haven’t- another great album with Yes connections- Peter, Steve, Patrick, Billy, plus Roger Dean cover.
