This week, Mark and I have had the chance to listen to the whole of the new Arc of Life album so listen out for our initial reactions to that. We also have time to think about a 2 pence suggested by Jeremy North and I need to correct an omission from last week when we played Daniel and Amanda’s contribution to the What if Rick Wakeman had joined Yes before the Yes Album question but didn’t have time to add any feedback.

Yes Music Podcast

This is our first episode in the YMP’s 10th Anniversary year and it’s a real epic. I asked Patrons and a few others for their contributions to this week’s topic and the response was amazing. So this is another episode you might want to listen to in parts. It may well be the longest episode ever but I also think you’ll really enjoy hearing everyone’s thoughts on Rick Wakeman and The Yes Album. Incidentally, if you sent me a contribution but I haven’t included it, please do let me know and I’ll apologise and add it to next week’s show.

Yes Music Podcast

Recorded on the last day of 2020, we bid a grateful farewell to a year which has been difficult for everyone. However, it's also been one of the most successful years for the YMP! Mark and I have chosen our own 6 favourite episodes from the past year and we invite you to add your own selections to the comments below. We also look ahead briefly to 2021 which is, of course, the 10th Anniversary Year of the YMP. It would be fantastic if you were able to join in the recording of the 500th episode from the top of Yes Tor in Devon, UK, on 17th August 2021. Many more details to follow! We hope to see...

Yes Music Podcast

It’s been a bit of a challenging week on the technical side with Mark in lockdown and without proper internet access and my move of the YMP Towers into a new location in the house. However, we did manage to listen to the Jon Anderson Christmas album, 3 Ships which was very enjoyable. What's Jon's Christmas album like? Are all the songs 'Christmassy'? Why listen to 3 Ships? Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!

Yes Music Podcast

This week marks something of a departure for us here at YMP Towers. In our ever-popular what did they do next series, we have reached the point where Trevor Rabin left the band after the Talk Tour in 1995. He went off to pursue his other musical avenue of choice - film scores. So that means we will be listening not to a rock or progressive album next week but a film soundtrack. That should be very interesting. We are also hoping to have Julia from the fabulous Rabinesque blog with us next week because she knows rather more than we do about Trevor’s soundtrack work and should be able to fill...

Yes Music Podcast

It’s been a very interesting task to compare and contrast Big Generator and Drama this week. Mark and I have hopefully come up with some thoughts which are of interest to you. As always, please add your own comments to the show notes for this week - we’d love to hear what you think of these two albums in our latest shoot-out. You can’t have escaped the fact that it’s been Thanksgiving in the US this week and when this episode is released it is Black Friday. Happy Holidays to all. This year, YMP has jumped on the proverbial bandwagon and the Emporium is offering a special deal from 27th...

Yes Music Podcast

Across the globe from Canada, Indonesia, the UK and the US (I think!) it was a real pleasure for Mark and I to speak to Kevin Currie and Ted Stockwell this week about their band, White, which has featured Alan White and Geoff Downes in the past. It's a great, in-depth interview in which we delve into the fascinating history of the band and their strong links to Yes. The whole conversation was organised for us by Daniel Krohn so many thanks to him. What albums has White produced? What happened to the More Drama Tour on which White were to play? Are there any plans for the future? Listen to...

Yes Music Podcast

It was, as usual, a delight to speak to one of the most knowledgeable and friendly Yes fanatics this week, Dave Watkinson. He told us about three very special memorabilia activities he’s been involved in recently. You might want to take a look at the show notes for this week to see exactly what Dave’s talking about but it’s all fascinating and gives some new insights into the story of the world’s greatest progressive rock band. I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as Mark and I did recording it.

Mark and I are back this week with the second part of our look at the World Trade album Euphoria in our what did they do next series this time featuring Billy Sherwood. We also have a chance to give our two pence on a topic which compares Roger Dean’s approach to that of Yes themselves. I hope you find all that interesting.

In a week when I was very pressed for time, I did manage to listen to Yes and Time And A Word and also speak to Mark about it.
