    New book about Yes in Australia to be launched April 18 2010!

    I am in the late stages of publishing a book about the two Yes tours of Australia - should be available this year.

    The book will cover their CTTE tour in 1973 and the Full Circle 2003 tour. It includes contemporary reviews, fans reminiscences and excerpts from interviews with the band. It also cover the formation of YesFANZ and the role it played in getting Yes & Roger Dean to Australia in 2003.

    It will be around 200 pages text with 20 pages of photos.

    I will be self publishing so the number produced will influence price.

    At present I envisage a price of $Aud15-20 ($US 12.25-16.30) +pph

    This would simply cover the publishing costs - it is intended to be cost neutral.

    Please let me know if you are interested in purchasing a copy and I'll keep you informed of when it will be available.

    if there are nice photos of Rick in, count me in! I hope shipping won't be too expensive.

    I'm working on the photos at present

    It looks likely that there will be previously unpublished 1973 tour pro-shot photos of Rick and 2003 photos too

    This sounds like something Earl and I can't pass up.

    Very cool, Brian!
    I had a dream last night
    of lovers who walked the plank,
    out on the edge of time - amidst ridicule
    they laughed as they rocked and reeled
    over the mining fields
    coming to rest on this ship of fools....

    I should add that there will be previously unpublished pro-shot concert pictures of the whole group from the 73 tour in Australia - just working on that now but its very exciting.

    The photos are as good (if not better!) as any I have seen from the era

    Just a quick update on my book.

    I had hoped to have it ready for Christmas but it now looks more likely to be available around Easter

    The book is written, I have 10 pro-shot concert photos from Sydney 1973 (9 previously unpublished), around 15 pro shot unpublished photos from Sydney 2003 plus numerous other photos and graphics.

    The cover will be one of Roger Dean's Yes album covers

    I am in discussion with a publisher about finalising the production.

    Will let everyone know when it becomes available and how to get a copy.
