Re: It's Personal - redesign

I love it. Better than the "real" cover.

Re: The first four albums: New reissues due in July.

Birmingham would have made more sense considering the cover of the first album. Still fun though that they played around with other names.

Re: The first four albums: New reissues due in July.

Besides the bonus tracks (which on the other hand, have been long available for us in the vault), I think the liner notes with Chris and Mike participating, is the biggest contribution for this reissue. There are some tidbits, that at least I didn't know about, such as considering bandnames "Sons o...

Re: The first four albums: New reissues due in July.

Remember back when John accused Paul of only writing "silly love songs"? Well, it wasn't John who penned Helter Skelter. No one can with even the best of intentions call that a love song. That must have been the closest thing to punk 8 years before anyone even had a clue about the concept. And Stev...

Re: The first four albums: New reissues due in July.

remarkable... imho the last two albums, without Chris and Steve, are the least progressive of all seven... You can't take everything seriously.

Re: The first four albums: New reissues due in July.

According to Mike there was no voting out. Haven't seen Chris around or Max for that matter for a long time. Would be interesting to hear their comments. According to Mike, Steve and Chris wanted to go in a more comercial direction while the others wanted to go more in a progressive direction. A per...

Re: RIP Chris Squire

The Gagliarchives show from Philadelphia on Aural Moon spent their whole program today as a tribute to Chris Squire. Quite amazing. 5 hours of music with Yes, Chris and other groups he has been in over the years. They even played some rare 60's stuff pre-Yes at the beginning of the show and lots of ...

Yeah thanks for that, Geir. Already placed the order. Annoying typos though.

The Great Gig In The Sky

Many old and slightly less older heroes has left us over the past few years and even more if you look back a few decades. I mean, Jaco Pastorius could very well be jamming with Wayne Shorter and Joe Zawinul again. Who really knows? The fantastic options for various constellations are starting to get...

Double RIP Jon Tout & Rutger Gunnarsson

John Tout passed away on Friday, May 1st at 4:30pm from lung failure at The Royal Free Hospital, London, England. He was an amazing musician, highly contributing to the unique sound of the band from 1970 – 1980. He was the quiet (but funny) one in the band, always very caring towards the fans and go...

Re: Artiphon Instrument 1

sounds interesting. definitely have to check it out. Yep, it seems pretty cool. Another thing I remember they said was that they wanted one person to be his or her own band. So I assume they can loop each instrument. I have noticed that they have in connected to either a laptop or a tablet but I do...

Artiphon Instrument 1

I stumbled across this new instrument a couple of months ago on the internet. Since we have a lot of musicians on the forum, it could be interesting to see what you think about it. To me it seems pretty fantastic. Looks like a stick but can be played like a guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, violin or c...
