    Bill unveils the 50th Anniversary Plaque in the exact place the band was founded!







    Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier







    As I'm officially on leave this Friday and next, there no time for news I'm afraid but there was time for a great discussion between Mark and me about what Bill Bruford did next after leaving Yes following the end of the Union tour. Almost immediately, he recorded a live album with his band, Earthworks.







    * What is Earthworks all about?* Is Bill's favourite music jazz not rock?* Melodies on the drums - how does that work?

    Fragile vs Close To The Edge – 437

    Mini Fragile!







    Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier







    This week, Mark and I decided to delve back into the main sequence of Yes albums and think about the pros and cons of Fragile and Close to the Edge. Both contain some fantastic music but which is the more satisfying? Listen to our thoughts and then add yours to the comments below.







    * Which record is 'better'?* What about the solo items on Fragile?* Why does Close To The Edge always win in polls?







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

    The Red Planet – Lee Pomeroy talks about his part in Rick Wakeman’s new album – 436

    Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier















    This week we were delighted to welcome extraordinary bassist, Lee Pomeroy, back onto the podcast. As part of Rick Wakeman's English Rock Ensemble, Lee has been involved in the creation of a wonderful prog album, The Red Planet. Although the release date has been hit by lockdown, as you will hear, Lee explains that it will be well worth the wait and is very excited about this return to Rick's progressive roots.







    * How was this record put together in lockdown?* Is it really progressive rock?* How much was Lee involved in the writing of bass parts?

    Yes Talk with guitarist Fernando Perdomo – 435

    Yes Talk with guitarist Fernando Perdomo – 435

    Fernando with Steve Hackett on the Cruise to the Edge







    Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier







    This week, Mark and I had a hugely enjoyable conversation with the amazing Fernando Perdomo. A long-term collaborator with a previous guest, Dave Kerzner, Fernando tells us about his fascination with Peter Banks, his work on the 50th Anniversary Yes tribute CD and his own music in the new Peter Banks continuation project, The New Empire whose album is out soon. Fernando has even given us permission to play a song from the new album exclusively here on the show so listen out for that later on - I’m sure you’ll agree it’s brilliant.







    Mark and I also had time to record our thoughts in a two pence segment about the rumours around the producer for the new Yes album. Hold on tight for that as well.







    Fernando in full flow







    * How does Peter Banks' style differ from Steve Howe's?* What drew Fernando to the music of Yes?* How is Fernando preserving the legacy of Peter Banks?

    What did they do next part 14b – Trevor Rabin 434

    Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier







    From Doug Curran







    In part two of our exploration of what Trevor Rabin did next, this week Mark and I have been listening to his solo album, Can’t Look Away. There’s plenty to like and plenty to discuss so look out for that later on.







    * Did Trevor Rabin actually leave Yes in 1989?* What did he do while he was 'away'?* Is this a good solo album?

Weekly Yes Podcast

A great listen, very informative , and enjoyable.Every week Kevin and Mark discuss all the latest Yes news. They also review current and classic albums and concerts. A must for Yes fans , keep up the great work !

ppmw99 ,

a must if you love Yes music

Kevin combines a love for Yes music with a musical sensibility that informs his analysis of the music and lyrics of Yes as well as interesting interviews with other musicians, Yes ephemera and a real feeling for the listener of being part of a wider body of people who appreciate the music of this unique band. Dive in to the 70 (at the time of writing) episodes at your favourite part of Yes music and history but expect to want to listen to them all - each episode is approx 15 minutes of insight and entertainment.
