I was on holiday this week so Mark and I couldn't get together to chat about this album but we did manage to record our own thoughts on what Benoit did next. See if you agree with us!

  • What did Benoit do next?
  • Is MYSTERY like Yes?
  • Is this a good album?

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

Is this the last part of our What did they do next series? Probably…possibly…maybe not. 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 also working on an album for a different band - which one? Well, maybe it’s not much of a mystery but if you don’t know, just keep listening as Mark and I explain what happened leading up to Benoit’s departure and what he did next.

We went deep into the weeds again this week with Master of the Master Tapes, Brian Kehew, who produced the amazing live box set, Progeny, as well as working on the bonus tracks for the Tormato and Drama Expanded and Remastered CD releases in 2004.

  • What governed the choices when creating Progeny?
  • Is Progeny a 'better' collection of Yes live than Yessongs?
  • What did Brian find in the vaults from the Tormato and Drama sessions?

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