Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius
This week the redoubtable Geoff Bailie presents his feedback on two remarkable Rick Wakeman concerts at the London Palladium which, as you can imagine, contain a shedload of Yes connections. Then Mark and I start to consider why Yes wanted keyboardist Igor Khoroshev after the aforementioned Rick Wakeman left the band, once again in 1996.
We will be setting you some homework to listen to a bootleg recording of Igor and the boys on the Open Your Eyes Tour so please see below for the link.
- How were the two nights of Rick’s concerts?
- What was it about Igor which attracted Yes?
- How can we hear how good Igor was?
- Joseph Cottrell
- Ken Fuller
- Jeffrey Crecelius and

Facebook has changed how pages work which means that I’ve had to establish a new place for us to post and discuss Yes-related happenings. It’s a new group entitled, rather creatively, YMP Discussion Group. For the moment it’s open to anyone to join but I’ll be adding rules and joining requirements when I have time. One of the advantages of the new format is that all members of the group have the same ability to post content, so it’s a bit more egalitarian, or somesuch. Please do search for the group and join in.
If you are still listening to the podcast on the website, please consider subscribing so you don’t risk missing anything:
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: archive.org
