Yes Music Podcast

Produced by Joseph Cottrell, Jeffrey Crecelius and Ken Fuller

We took a break from Tales from Topographic Oceans this week to consider what Yes were up to in the 1980s. Across just four albums (if you are happy to call ABWH a Yes album), Yes music was somewhat different to what had come before.

You are probably aware that our friends and YMP Patrons Stephen Lambe and Dave Watkinson wrote a whole book about Yes in the 1980s so don't forget to check that out if you don't already have a copy - it's currently available for a reduced price at Burning Shed.

Mark and I choose our favourite songs from each of these four albums and consider what makes the Yes music of the 1980s great.

  • Are all the 80s records similar?
  • How would you define the Yes music of this decade?
  • Why isn't there more of it?
