    Billy Sherwood on Arc of Life 466

    29/01/2021 Duração: 26min

    Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier This week, Mark and I had the pleasure of speaking to Billy Sherwood about Arc Of Life, the band and the album. We also asked him about the widely rumoured new Yes studio album and he was, unsurprisingly, less forthcoming about that. It did lead to some light-hearted moments which we think you will enjoy though. Where did Arc Of Life spring from?Who plays what?What are the plans for the future of the band?

    Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier The original title! It was a delight to welcome Yes and DBA keyboardist Geoff Downes back onto the show this week. Mark and I speak to him about his excellent new DBA album, Halcyon Hymns as well as a couple of aspects of what’s coming up for Yes in 2021, specifically the rumours around the new album and the possibilities of touring. So listen out for that conversation. How does the new DBA album compare to the previous one?Is it prog?What are Yes really doing in 2021? Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!

    Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier This week, Mark and I have had the chance to listen to the whole of the new Arc of Life album so listen out in a few moments 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. What is the full Arc of Life album like?Is the music different to the singles?Is it prog - and does it matter? Listen to the episode and let us know what you think! Join us as a Patron!

    What If…Rick Wakeman had joined Yes before The Yes Album? 463

    08/01/2021 Duração: 01h27min

    Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier ABWH days!The Album in question 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. Was this the right time for Rick Wakeman to join Yes?Was Tony Kaye's style not right for the band?How different would it have sounded if Wakeman had been there?

We also look ahead briefly to 2021 which is, of course, the 10th Anniversary Year of the YMP, hence the photo of Yes Tor above.

    Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier Jon Anderson with Jon-Luc Ponty 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?

    What Did They Do Next Part 18b – Trevor Rabin – PLUS Arc of Life 460

    11/12/2020 Duração: 01h10min

    Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier Trevor in rock mode Rabin-esque blog: http://rabinesque.blogspot.com/ This is going to be a really long episode so maybe you should listen in a few parts. There are several really important pieces of news about releases, some audio contributions, a special 2 pence about Arc of Life and a wonderful interview with Julie from the Rabin-esque blog about Trevor Rabin’s movie score-writing career and The Glimmer Man which was the first thing he did after leaving Yes in 1995. Wow. So unfortunately I will need to postpone the full round up of social webs until next week. Incidentally if you’ve ever wondered how to see the community posts on the YMP Facebook page, you just need to click on the community tab towards the top of the page. There’s lots on there to enjoy and, as I say, I’ll get back to all that next week. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Arc-Life/dp/B08NF334WL/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Arc%20of%20life&qid=1607095396

    What Did They Do Next Part 18a – Trevor Rabin 459

    05/12/2020 Duração: 34min

    Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier Trevor in rock mode 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 in a lot of the details for us. We also have a 2 pence this week about the new band, Arc Of Life. Here's their first album, courtesy of Daniel Krohn who found it on Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Arc-Life/dp/B08NF334WL/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Arc%20of%20life&qid=1607095396&s=music&sr=1-1&pldnSite=1&fbclid=IwAR

It's a great, in-depth interview in which we delve into the fascinating history of the band and their strong links to Yes.

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.

    Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier I’d like to say Mark and I have been enjoying listening to the new Yes live album, The Royal Affair Tour: Live From Las Vegas this week and actually I have enjoyed the majority of it but you’ll hear a little later in the episode why we’re slightly concerned about the latest release. You may find our comments difficult or you may agree - please do let us know either way. At the end of the episode Mark also helps me out to gain a proper understanding of the significance of Eddie van Halen who, as I’m sure you know, sadly died at the tragically young age of 65 this week.
