Union Live – our favourite facets – 634
Yes Music Podcast

1w ago
Produced by Wayne Hall, Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller It seems like a long time since the last new episode of the YMP but it’s not really. Anyway, I am back from my trip of a lifetime to the Indian Ocean for my 30th Wedding Anniversary which was a wonderful, unforgettable experience. While I was away, I received one of the Union 30 Live box sets after it had been reduced to a sensible price, as spotted by Brian Neeson. Rather than concentrate on what’s in that remarkable package, Mark and I decided to talk more widely about the Union Tour, as you’ll hear a little later on ..read more

Tales from the archives – 633
Yes Music Podcast

Produced by Wayne Hall, Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller This week I have delved into the YMP archives because my work commitments have not allowed me to record an episode with Mark. However, this means you can listen to me sounding younger, and perhaps a little more hesitant from way back in 2011. The first focus I had in the podcast was to record my thoughts on all the then Yes studio albums so what follows is those thoughts from episodes 6 and 7 where I covered Tales from Topographic Oceans. I’m sure my thoughts would be very different if I were to rewrite these episodes to ..read more

Yes Album Listening Guides – Tales From Topographic Oceans Part 10 – Tales live – the video – 632
Yes Music Podcast

Produced by Wayne Hall, Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller This week Mark and I watched the video compiled and edited by Hed Gilboa and posted to the YMP Discussion group on Facebook by Doug Curran that contains all the known crowd-shot footage of Yes on the Tales Tour of the US and Canada in 1974. One mistake I made (presumably amongst many) was to say that the Super 8 film format became available in 1975. Of course, I meant 1965 otherwise this tour couldn’t have been captured using this technology. Also, as Mark mentioned later in the discussion, we do have a great opportunity ..read more

Our favourite 80s Yes lyrics – 629

Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller ANderson, Trevor Horn and Trevor Rabin. It’s an area we seldom look at so it was very enjoyable to examine a different aspect of the music of Yes and I definitely learned a lot from what Mark said about his choices. I’m sure you will as well. As always, we’d love to see what your suggestions are for great 80s Yes lyrics so do leave your choices on the show notes for this episode. Are there differences between lyrics by different Yes frontmen? Do the other writers try to sound like Jon Anderson? What makes a good Yes lyric? Let us kn ..read more

What did the Talk songs sound like live? – 628
Yes Music Podcast
by Kevin Mulryne
2M ago
Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller This week, Mark and I take our cue from the recent announcement of the Talk deluxe box set to be released at the end of this month. It contains a live recording of a 1994 concert in Canandaigua, New York (interestingly seemingly misspelt on the adverts) that includes 5 songs from the recently released album. So we were wondering how the latest songs sounded in 1994 in a live setting. The best bootleg available up to now has been the TV broadcast from Santiago in Chile during the fairly short South American Tour of 1994. Mark owns a ..read more

Yes Tour Time Machine – 627

Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller This week, Mark and I climbed aboard our state of the art time machine to visit the past of the world’s greatest progressive rock band. We each chose 3 Yes tours we would love to be able to visit and gave each other clues to guess which ones we were thinking of. You’ll get the idea I’m sure. Do play along yourself and see if you can guess the tours in question before Mark or I do - you probably will. Then, why not add your own to the show notes for this week - set a few clues and then see if anyone can guess in the comments. We had ..read more

Our favourite Peter Banks-era songs – 625
Yes Music Podcast

Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller This week Mark and I attempted to choose 3 Peter Banks era Yes songs each. As you’ll hear, we turned out to be thinking along similar lines but it was still a very enjoyable experience listening to the earliest days of the band and discussing what made Yes unique even at that stage. Yesterdays label This topic was partly in response to a tweet or X post or whatever they are now called from Phil (Primarily_Prog) @primarily_prog who posted a photo of Time and a Word and said - Continuing tonight with perhaps the most undervalued album ..read more

Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller Geoff Bailie and some other bloke It was lovely to welcome back onto the YMP our friend and patron, Geoff Bailie this week. Mark and I spoke to him about the recent news that Yes will be on tour with Deep Purple in the US and Canada this Summer. What do you think of that idea? Well, self-confessed Deep Purple fan Geoff shares some thoughts with us and we discuss pretty much every aspect of the forthcoming tour, as you would expect. Do leave your own thoughts on the show notes for this week. Why are Yes touring with Deep Purple? Is t ..read more

Yes Album Listening Guides – Tales From Topographic Oceans Part 8 – The unsung hero, Genaro Rippo – 623
Yes Music Podcast

Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller It seems like a long time since the last episode but it’s not. Anyway, it was delightful to speak to a warm and friendly unsung hero of Yes last week. As you will hear, despite being very keen to be involved, Mark wasn’t able to join in the conversation due to timing and technical issues but he will be back next week. Genaro actually contacted me quite some time ago and introduced himself. It’s taken ages to coordinate a time to speak but I’m sure you’ll agree that it was well worth the effort and I’m sure he will be joining us agai ..read more

Talk re-issue – the ‘Lost’ Yes album? – 622
Yes Music Podcast

4M ago
Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller I'm publishing this episode on Good Friday so there's been no time for the usual news roundup. However, Mark and I did manage to talk about 'Talk' receiving the box set treatment. We discuss what's going to be included - and what doesn't seem to be included as well. It one of our favourite Yes albums so there's plenty to be excited about in this release. In what sense is Talk 'lost'? Is this going to be a worthwhile release? What's going to be on all those discs? Let us know if you agree with us! Check out the progress on my other p ..read more
