This week our 2 Pence is about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and we also discuss our favourite special editions of Yes albums. Kevin comes up with a set of definitions of special editions, Mark delves deeply into the technical specifications and we come up with our two favourite discs. Take a listen and see if your favourites match ours!

  • What makes a Yes album release a special edition?
  • Are there more special editions than the Steven Wilson Remixes?
  • Why are most special editions on CD?

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