The epic album battle – Close To The Edge vs. Relayer – Part 2 – 561

November 25, 2022 16:06 - 1 hour - 44.3 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius Mark and I spent a very enjoyable week listening to CTTE and Relayer - and why not? In time honoured fashion we have recorded our thoughts independently and then we meet up to criticise each other’s ideas. Not really. We do, however, indulge in the futile but nevertheless enjoyable process of ranking the albums against each other and coming out with a winner. Will you agree with our assessments? The sense of anticipation could be cut w...

The epic album battle – Close To The Edge vs. Relayer – Part 1 – 560

November 18, 2022 16:11 - 47 minutes - 33.4 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius This week Mark and I embark upon another inevitably unjustifiable escapade - the rating of two classic Yes albums against each other. If it wasn’t fun we wouldn’t do it but it keeps us off the streets at least. This time we have decided to pit Close To The Edge against Relayer and you can play along as well. In part 1 we bang on about the similarities and differences between the records and then next week we will report back on our fin...

We talk about London in the 70s and Tormato with music Journalist and Yes book author, Chris Welch – 559

November 11, 2022 14:41 - 35 minutes - 25 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius This week we met the delightful Chris Welch who wrote one of the most important books about Yes, Close To The Edge - The Yes Story. Journalist for Melody Maker, Kerrang and many other publications, Chris has known the band from its earliest days and we very much enjoyed talking to him about those days in the early 70s as well as his trip to Advision to see the band recording Tormato. It was a  great conversation so we hope you enjoy it...

Yes 8-Track Tapes with Tim Durling – 558

November 04, 2022 15:37 - 49 minutes - 34.4 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius This week we are off into the weeds once again, this time with Tim Durling as our guide. As the originator of Tim’s Vinyl Confessions, he is ideally placed to tell us more about the 8 track tapes that have been released over the years by Yes and we discover a wealth of interesting facts about the much-maligned media format which, as you may remember, was the basis of the ill-fated Birotron Rick Wakeman championed and part-funded in the...

Why Did Yes Want…Eddie Jobson? – Part 2 – 557

October 28, 2022 16:05 - 39 minutes - 27.9 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius Lrheath / CC BY-SA This week, Mark and I have been enjoying listening to Night After Night, the live album from UK in our quest to discover why Yes wanted Eddie Jobson. Hear our views in a few moments’ time and add your own to the comments in the show notes for this week’s episode. Did you see UK in either of their incarnations? What do you think of the 3-piece lineup without Bruford and Holdsworth but with Terry Bozzio? Did it work?...

Why Did Yes Want…Eddie Jobson? – Part 1 – 556

October 21, 2022 15:39 - 38 minutes - 27 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius Lrheath / CC BY-SA This week Mark and I have been considering why Yes wanted Eddie Jobson. He stayed with the band for about as long as a British Prime Minister but there must have been compelling musical reasons why he was asked to join in the first place. So that’s what we are beginning to explore in this episode. While Eddie isn’t very well-known outside the Prog world, he certainly had the capacity to take Yes in a different and p...

Why did Yes want…The Buggles – Part 2 – 555

October 14, 2022 14:42 - 43 minutes - 30.7 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius We are finally back with part 2 of our look at the Buggles and why Yes might have wanted them. For this, we’ve been listening to the first album from the duo, The Age Of Plastic, seeing if we can pick up some pointers. As usual, it was a revealing and enjoyable experience and quite topical as Trevor Horn’s autobiography is being advertised across all of my social media at the moment. Let us know what you think of our views in the show ...

I speak to Steve Howe about Lunar Mist and the 2022 US Tour – 554

October 07, 2022 15:15 - 29 minutes - 21.1 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius What a week it’s been in the world of Yes. Thanks to friend of the YMP Roie Avin, I managed to speak to Steve Howe about his new album with his late son Virgil, Lunar Mist as well as the US tour which began yesterday with a preview concert. (Don’t worry, I managed to slip in a question about Tormato as well.) YMP Producer Ken Fuller went along to the dress rehearsal and I’ve added his photos from the event to the show notes for this we...

Rick Wakeman’s Yes harpsichord moments with James Gardner – 553

September 30, 2022 14:37 - 1 hour - 42.2 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius This week we decided to postpone the second part of our Buggles episode because we had the chance to interview James Gardner about Rick Wakeman’s use of the harpsichord. It was a wide-ranging and fascinating discussion and we learned a lot about both the instrument and some of the characters involved with creating the actual instruments Rick used on recordings with Yes. James has an encyclopedic knowledge of the use of harpsichords in...

Why did Yes want…The Buggles – Part 1 – 552

September 23, 2022 15:49 - 30 minutes - 21.5 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius This week we are back with our ‘Why did Yes want…’ series and we have reached 1980 when both Anderson and Wakeman had left the band and up stepped Horn and Downes. How did this happen and why would Yes want to develop a relationship with a pop band? Listen on to discover our thoughts and then add your own to the show notes. Over the coming week we will be listening to The Buggles album, ‘The Age Of Plastic’ to try and find some clues t...

What if…Yes played a concert with an Open Your Eyes onwards only setlist? – 551

September 17, 2022 10:14 - 37 minutes - 26.3 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius This week, Mark and I consider the question of what would happen if Yes were restricted to only playing music from Open Your Eyes to The Quest in a concert. Imagine that. Well, we did. Listen out for our ideas and add your own to the show notes for this week. What would you choose?Can a sensible setlist be constructed?How would it fit together? Take a listen to the episode and then let us know what you think below! Here are all the ...

Why did Yes want…Patrick Moraz? Part 2 – 550

September 09, 2022 15:12 - 41 minutes - 28.7 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius This week, Mark and I give our impressions of the self-titled album by Refugee, featuring Patrick Moraz, in our attempt to see why Yes wanted him in the band in 1974. As you will hear, we both rather like it. Please do add your own comments to the show notes for this week’s episode and let us know if you agree or disagree. Is it obvious why Yes wanted Patrick Moraz from this album?What special abilities does he show here?Would he fit ...

Why did Yes want…Patrick Moraz? Part 1 – 549

September 02, 2022 15:01 - 32 minutes - 23 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius This week Mark and I consider why Yes wanted Swiss keyboardist Patrick Moraz to join them after the departure of Rick Wakeman. We discuss the bands which Moraz played in and the route he took to arrive with Yes which, as you might imagine, wasn’t straightforward! It eventually led to his band, Refugee so we will be spending next week listening to their self-titled album in order to give you our thoughts on that record. Sounds like it’s...

“Po…confirmed it was me!” – YMP speaks to Rob Brimson, YES photographer and the guy on the cover of Tormato – 548

August 26, 2022 15:31 - 39 minutes - 28 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius Mark and I had a great time speaking to photographer Rob Brimson this week. He was with Po from Hipgnosis when the photos of YES band members on the inner gatefold sleeve of Going For The One were taken and he took the shot of Yes Tor which adorns the cover of Tormato. He also did a bit of informal modelling work… Rob was open and generous about the days when he was based at Hipgnosis’ studios in London as well as his trip to Mountain ...

Why did Yes want…Alan White? Part 2 – 547

August 19, 2022 15:35 - 40 minutes - 28.6 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius This week Mark and I have enjoyed listening to Alan White in a rather different context to normal - adding his remarkable talents to John Lennon’s classic album, Imagine. We present our thoughts and then get together to have a chat about the music and the musicians involved. Please do add your own thoughts below and see if you agree with Mark and me. This is the image from our conversation with Alan We also found time to consider a t...

Why did Yes want…Alan White? Part 1 – 546

August 12, 2022 14:05 - 35 minutes - 25.2 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius While we wait for Yes to begin their tour in Japan in September and following the end of Jon Anderson’s Close To The Edge tour, it’s comparatively quiet in Yes world at the moment. That certainly doesn’t mean we don’t have anything to talk about, of course. So this week Mark and I have been thinking about why Yes wanted the late and already desperately missed Alan White. We have discovered or perhaps rediscovered some aspects of Alan...

Second chance to hear our interview with Casey Young – 545

August 05, 2022 15:57 - 38 minutes - 26.4 MB

I’m on holiday - again - with the family so I’ve added a repeat of one of our favourite ’deep dives’ into the feed. I hope you enjoy it even if you’ve heard it before.

Colin Elgie’s Yes artwork secrets PLUS Mark’s album inner sleeve favourites – 544

July 29, 2022 15:55 - 46 minutes - 32.5 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius I recently spoke to illustrator Colin Elgie, who was a freelance illustrator for legendary album art producers, Hipgnosis, for the whole of the 1970s. We chatted about his artwork for Tormato and I found out that he also produced some other Yes items you'll recognise, along with other prog album covers. It was a great phone call and this week I explain to Mark what Colin said and we take a look at some of the artwork Colin and I discu...

Why did Yes want…Rick Wakeman? Part 2 – 543

July 22, 2022 14:26 - 40 minutes - 28.4 MB

Produced by Ken Fuller, Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius After a period of ill health I’m finally back this week with the second part of our Why did Yes want Rick Wakeman feature. Many thanks to everyone who has sent wishes for a speedy recovery. We also have the final word from Simon Barrow on the CTTE 50th Anniversary UK and Irish tour and we start with some news from around the interwebs. What were the two previous albums from Strawbs like?Why was Rick fed up with that band?What were pr...

Why did Yes want…Rick Wakeman Part 1 – 542

July 08, 2022 14:23 - 33 minutes - 23.5 MB

Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius We are back almost to normal or what passes for normal in these parts this week. After the merry mayhem of the Yes UK and Irish tour celebrating CTTE’s 50th Anniversary, this week Mark and I return to our new-ish series trying to make semi-educated guesses about why Yes wanted to add new or different musicians to their fold. This time, we turn our excited attention to Rick Wakeman and consider what he was doing to attract the band’s attention. Tha...

Yes Live at the Royal Albert Hall in 2022 – 539

June 23, 2022 14:13 - 46 minutes - 32.6 MB

Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius I had an amazing time in London with new and old Yes friends on 21st June 2022. The concert was stunning and you'll hear me banging on about it in this episode. A magical evening of Yes music in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Close To The Edge which was performed perfectly to a full house at one of the most iconic of all venues. It's only the 10th time Yes have played at the RAH and it's also 10 years since Jon Davison joined the band. ...

June 10, 2022 13:36 - 32 minutes - 23 MB

Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius We are all, as Yesfans, still reeling from the news of the death of the great Alan White and the forthcoming tour will sadly be a very different experience.

More as well as plenty of news and the announcement of the winner of the amazing Asia in Asia box set. What style is the Tomorrow album?Does it sound like Yes?Does it sound ...

R.I.P. Alan White, Yes’ stalwart drummer throughout decades of Perpetual Change – 535

May 26, 2022 20:09 - 20 minutes - 14.6 MB

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius and Wayne Hall Next week’s YMP episode will be a proper tribute to Alan White so please add your contributions in the comments section below. This week, rather than a ‘standard’ episode we thought it would be appropriate to re-play our interview with Alan from January 2020. He was in fine form, as always and it was a joy to speak to him. ‘Legendary’ is an entirely apt description of this true gentleman, extraordinary musician and friend to all he encountered....

Geoff Downes talks about Asia in Asia 83 and Yes in Europe 22 – 534

Why did Yes want…Steve Howe? Part 1 – 532

May 06, 2022 15:18 - 35 minutes - 25.2 MB

Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius As you’ll hear in a few moments, Mark and I are starting a new series this week where we will bang on about the musicians who were tempted to join Yes and what they did previously which attracted the attention of the band. It’s a bit like a prequel to our ‘what did they do next’ series, if you see what I mean. Each topic will be in two parts as before so you will have a week (or sometimes more) to listen to the music yourself before Mark and I giv...

Hammond, Polymoog, Double Mellotron, Harpsichord and RMI, oh my! 531

April 29, 2022 14:13 - 36 minutes - 25.8 MB

Take a listen to the episode and t...

Rewind 10 years! (Be kind!) – 529

April 15, 2022 15:25 - 13 minutes - 6.18 MB

It’s a Bank Holiday and then Easter here in the UK so there’s been no time for a new episode this week. However, we are in the fortunate position to be able to look back 10 years and play a repeat from April 2012… This was really early in the development of the YMP so things were a bit different. The topic is just as relevant and interesting today, though, so let me know what you think of this blast from the past!

Dave Watkinson is back to tell us all about Yes concert opening music – 526

March 25, 2022 16:17 - 42 minutes - 29.8 MB

Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius It was great to speak to Dave Watkinson once again on the show this week. Some time ago he published an article on Yesworld.com all about the variety of music Yes have used to open their shows over 50 years and more. Mark and I very much enjoyed finding out more from Dave and here is the article - http://yesworld.com/yesshows-the-opening-music/yes-opening-music-year-guide/  After that conversation, there is a contribution from Daniel and Amanda K...

March 18, 2022 15:47 - 43 minutes - 30.4 MB

Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius Mark and I just about manage to stay in control of the ‘spirited’ Fernando Perdomo this week.

What we were left with are many fascinating insights into Steve Howe’s guitars and approaches, all based around the greatest Yes album, Tormato. Stay tuned for that hurricane of enthusiasm. How did Howe get those sounds for Tormato and why...

What have they done? No Relayer! 524

March 12, 2022 17:28 - 33 minutes - 22.7 MB

Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius I was on the road this week but still managed to catch up with Mark and Henry Potts to discuss the news that Yes will not be playing Relayer on the upcoming tour but have opted to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Close To The Edge instead. I was in a hotel room with just my laptop but this news was clearly too important to miss. Why has Relayer been shelved?Will we ever hear the full album live?Is it too soon to play Close To The Edge in its en...

March 04, 2022 16:57 - 36 minutes - 24.7 MB

Produced by Wayne Hall and Jeffrey Crecelius This week's episode once again features our resident walking vinyl encyclopedia, Mark but this time I have a chance to pick his brains about the murky world of deadwax. As you might imagine, I get out a couple of my copies of Tormato to see what I can find in the deadwax areas of those and Mark shares some fascinating insights into the production of Yes vinyl records. Doug Curran also sent in an example of one of his Yes rarities for us to decip...

In any event, we are going to stop for the moment after we have talked about what Benoit David did after leaving the band due to ill health in 2012. Apart from the tragic loss of Chris Squire and the resulting return of Billy Sherwood, the band has maintained the same lineup since Benoit left. While he was still touring with Yes, he was a...
