Here we are, back with part 2 or (b) of our look at what Rick Wakeman did next after the first time he left Yes. SO we’ve been listening to The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table!
Also, we take the opportunity to congratulate Yes on listening to episodes of the YMP and following our advice on the new album 😉
Listen and let us know what you think!
- Is this record just excessive?
- How does Wakeman integrate such huge forces into something coherent?
- Has it stood the test of time?

Mark’s 1975 1st UK pressing. .the first pressing had an embossed cover (mainly the seal):
Mark’s 1975 US White Label Promo pressing. The cover is different in that it has a matte finish to it…whereas the UK had a gloss cover with the embossed seal….no embossing on the promo copy. Also this promo copy has the song titles on the back cover…which weren’t on the UK…and the centre label is obviously a white label variation:
