    Will that be all? Will the new Dean CTTE paintings
    be only included in this?

    No boxset?
    I think it'll ship not too long after the 50th Anniversary Quasimodially Yes Super D-Lux set Anderson was working on…

    Why did Dean do extra CTTE covers?

    Management or band decide to focus new tour on CTTE?

    Or is it just all for the Gottlieb designed tour book?

    Still hopin' for a boxset/media blitz. Now. Before the CTTE50 tour starts. My gut tells me the Gottlieb Bros are leanin' into CTTE on twitter right now, buildin' up to an announcement. And. I believe Wakey and Howe had lunch recently in a swish London restaurant. Plottin' the media campaign and finally buryin' a few hatchets

    Stranger things have happened.

    Since they haven't been celebrating anniversaries of albums all along (or at least they could have started with The Yes Album), I don't see why they would start now.

    What Rush has been doing (pairing the original record with a live show from each period) would be sweet, but somehow I don't see that happening either.

    Lying in a hammock with a sea breeze to take the edge off the heat of the Californian sun sounds like a nice way to spend one's day, especially with your 80th birthday under three years away.
    That's an image of Jonners I'd like to hang onto.

    I wonder if Leicester City Council would mind overmuch if I slung up a hammock in Victoria Park in the summer....?

Is coordination just starting now? Seems a bit late to me anyway. ??? And dare I ask- what about Jon A (the few who read what I post know I love him 😂) input? Not my biggest concern, just was a thought. Timing is what has me perplexed. I have to say I am very intrigued as to what will transpire.
    Sure. The new Dean paintings were painted last year. 3 or 4. Most decisions of production are probably made. My speculation revolves the 2 having lunch to discuss and coordinate a media campaign to promote archival releases. Get their stories straight. Who is going to go on BBC breakfast as Steve and Geoff did a couple of years ago. Good Morning Britain? Print and digital interviews. Approval to air old interviews.

    I could be wrong and it's only a catchup between 2 old muckers to chat about the good old days. Football. The meaning of life. We shall soon see. But WAKEY is a media tart. Adept at dropping juicy tidbits to self promote.

    Jon Anderson will be interviewed and will do press. Lying supine on his hammock as the soft Pacific breeze blows over San Luis Obispo.

    WATCH THIS SPACE.

    The first time I saw a Yes concert, I didn't know The Yes Album. It was 1973. They didn't play any of it, though that was something I only learned in the back of my mate's father's car on the way home afterwards. I'd only heard Revealing Science from Tales at that point too; Tales hadn't quite been released, but I'd heard Revealing Science on a late night radio programme, so the only parts of the concert I really know was Close to the Edge, and the encore Roundabout. That was it..
    By the time I saw them again on the Relayer Tour in the spring of 1975, and multiple times on that tour, they only played Your Move in a mid-set acoustic thing. Steve Howe did Clap a couple of times, alternating it with Mood For a Day. I yelled myself hoarse at each of those shows at the end for Starship Trooper. I REALLY REALLY wanted them to play it. It had become a big favourite in the intervening 18 months. At least they did Yours is no Disgrace at Reading in August 75, but that was a rare one-off outing for a Yes Album track in the UK.
    It wasn't till the Going For the One Tour in 1977 when they played anything from the Yes Album live in the UK in full, as part of the main set. Trooper, finally I got to hear it, was the encore, and I exploded.
    Trooper at the Wembley 1978 shows was pretty damned special.
    I didn't hear it live again till ABWH in 1989. That was special too.

    The 1979 version isn't too shabby.

    The PR may lean into celebrating Prog's Greatest Album as voted by fans and critics for years. New interviews with Offord, Lane, Dean, Wakeman, Howe, Bruford, Anderson. Dedicated to Squire. Who when he died had a full page obit in the main paper in this city.

    Maybe a youtube campaign with Rick Beato content. Prog magazine, Uncut, Mojo.
    Was surprised no big anniversary release for Fragile. In the age of streaming a physical product would be to woo the diehard and curious young hipster. Imagine getting your next coffee, and some young dude with skinny jeans and a moustache is raving about this amazing music to his barista mate. Casually mention you saw them live in 03.

    With news dropped in a media interview by Rick that he is lunching with Howe soon, can't help but think about that other old Yes cover....something's coming. Actually just watched Spielberg's West Side.

    gold standard classics should be revived and celebrated!

    Close to the Edge 2022.

    “Run away, run away”. 😂😂😂

    My first time seeing ST Live was the 90125 tour. And that version holds a very special place for me. Squire strutting around and Kaye’s mannerisms were great fun!!! A wonderful version!!

    Sorry to troll, not being mean, but other people have said that as well, and I just don't get it. Those early live versions of Starship Trooper (and a few other songs) sound like the band hadn't quite figured out how to get the song across, nor is Jon's singing that good (IMO he sounds way better on the GFTO and Tourmato tours.) Whether it was technology, the band streamlining their playing, or simply getting better, the Yes (and Jon Anderson) of 1972 and 1978 sound like two different bands.
    I don’t think thats trolling at all. Thats a good take amd
    vIew. I don’t agree though. LOL. 😆😆

    But that’s the beauty of people’s diff tastes!! 👍👍

    As I wrote prev I’m Just hard wired to YESSONGS. My baseline for all live yes. My first Live Yes. And all love threir firsts.

    BUT, I will agree that Starship Trooper ‘78 was flipping awesome!!! Never again has it sounded better. Before the age of CDs, internet, etc, when the mode for getting live shows was tape trading and boot vinyl - the go to version of ST was from Wembley ‘78. It just builds and builds and builds. Fabulous.

    Nice.....I've actually recently rediscovered YESSONGS, after many years of listening to the newer, Updated versions of these classics. Your "Highlights" story sounds like me and "The Quest" (still haven't listened !! ). My favorite songs from YESSONGS are still all the songs from the previous tour with Bruford : "Perpetual Change" (best version ever from YESSONGS imho), and "LDR/The Fish"......of all the amazing Chris solo's through the years, and different versions of "Fish" and "Whitefish".....there will never be a version which tops YESSONGS (and I challenge Anyone who disagrees with me !!). Just listened to the YESSONGS version of "Starship Trooper" earlier today....still not sure they've ever out-done that version (especially Wakeman's solo at the end) !
