    The Musical Instruments of Progressive Rock with Gerard Bassols – 516

    Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius







    It was great to speak to Gerald Bassols from Spain this week all about his amazing book, The Musical Instruments of Progressive Rock which very much does what it says on the tin. Stay tuned for that conversation.







    * Whatare the best 'Spinal Tap' moments in his book?* Did digital technology kill musical creativity?* What instruments typify progressive rock?







    Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!







    The book on Amazon.co.uk!

    Hopes and desires for Yes in 2022 with Simon Barrow – 515

    Hopes and desires for Yes in 2022 with Simon Barrow – 515

    Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius







    Simon Barrow with his book in front of the YES 50 plaque







    What should we expect from Yes in the coming year? Simon Barrow has some ideas as does Mark. We had a great conversation about the possibilities and our own, personal desires, partly based on the Facebook post by Daniel Krohn on the YMP Facebook page.







    As always, it was a delight to welcome the erudite and knowledgeable Simon back onto the show. Do watch out for at least two books from him - an updated version of Solid Mental Grace - Listening to the Music of Yes and YES in the 90s.







    In case you missed it, Simon has asked YMP listeners to contact the show if they have any photos from any Yes 90s events - so please take a look in your personal archives and let's see how we can help.







    * What do you want from Yes in 2022?* Will we see some archival releases?* Surely no new music...?

    “…he turned up at reception with a crow on his shoulder” and other tales from Advision with Peter Woolliscroft – 512

    Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius















    Mark and I met someone who can fill in a few more gaps in the Yes story this week. We managed to track down and speak to Peter Woolliscroft who was only a short time into his studio engineering career at Advision studio in London when Yes turned up to record Tormato. He shares his recollections of the sessions which are rich and extensive and it was a pleasure to welcome him to the show. Listen out for revelations about Tormato and a little bit about Peter’s extensive list of work with some of the biggest names in rock and pop.







    * How were things set up at Advision for Yes?* Would it have been better to employ a producer?* Who walked into reception accompanied by an avian pal?







    Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!

    Watch out for the North drums at 8:36 and Rick playing the Birotron at 2:34 and elsewhere.

    The ‘flared trousers’ of 70s drums – Chris Kimball talks about Alan White’s North kit – 511

    Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius







    Dave Watkinson in RAK studios with Alan's kit and Jeremy North's wonderful Tourmato photos from Wembley, 1978:







    Alan's North drums at RAK StudiosBefore the concertJon lends a percussive handSide view of the drumsA fantastic shot of keys and drums (spot the Birotron)Farewell Wembley!







    This week Mark and I spoke to Chris Kimball about a 70s oddity in the Yes instrumental arsenal - Alan White's North drums. After restoring, playing and recording with these strange objects, Chris is ideally placed to explain why they look so weird and why drummers like Alan White were interested in using them.







    It's another engrossing story from a very knowledgeable musician and it's packed with detail so I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.







    * Why are North drums shaped like that?* What were they made of?* Why did they disappear?







    Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!







    Some North Drums artifacts are available here -http://www.drumarchive.com/North/







    I mention and highly recommend Gerard Bassols' book, The Musical Instruments of Progressive Rock which is available here in the UK and here in the US.
