Yes Music Podcast

It’s been a very interesting task to compare and contrast Big Generator and Drama this week. Mark and I have hopefully come up with some thoughts which are of interest to you. As always, please add your own comments to the show notes for this week - we’d love to hear what you think of these two albums in our latest shoot-out.

You can’t have escaped the fact that it’s been Thanksgiving in the US this week and when this episode is released it is Black Friday. Happy Holidays to all.

This year, YMP has jumped on the proverbial bandwagon and the Emporium is offering a special deal from 27th November to 4th December. If you’d like to order yourself one of the Full Union Art Prints, you’ll also receive one of the The Answer Is YES! Trivia games for free when they are released. Sounds like a good deal to me. Head on over to and tell all your friends!

Across the globe from Canada, Indonesia, the UK and the US (I think!) it was a real pleasure for Mark and I to speak to Kevin Currie and Ted Stockwell this week about their band, White, which has featured Alan White and Geoff Downes in the past. It's a great, in-depth interview in which we delve into the fascinating history of the band and their strong links to Yes.

The whole conversation was organised for us by Daniel Krohn so many thanks to him.

  • What albums has White produced?
  • What happened to the More Drama Tour on which White were to play?
  • Are there any plans for the future?

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

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. I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as Mark and I did recording it.

Mark and I are back this week with the second part of our look at the World Trade album Euphoria in our what did they do next series this time featuring Billy Sherwood.

We also have a chance to give our two pence on a topic which compares Roger Dean’s approach to that of Yes themselves. I hope you find all that interesting.
