    Is anything not so straightforward to read "pulp fiction"? It seems a very eccentric criterion.

    The Guardian called Empire of the Sun the greatest British novel about the Second World War and it was on the Booker shortlist. A much more significant work than that year's winner Anita Brookner's [who, I hear you ask?] Hotel du Lac which I've read but can remember little of other than it being a bit sub Virginia Woolf in the intensity of its navel gazing.

        It could have been included easily in the Fly From Here, Return Trip or live albums.

        Horn obviously chose not to but it would have been much better than the awful dirge on the last two studio albums.

          there was apparently an interview with Trevor Horn circa 1980 where he states Yes is working on the follow up to drama titled Vermillion Sands

            Terrific song and album, would love to see what Yes would have done with it on Drama II

                  Remember that interview and VS was talked about.
                  Wonder if Horn and Downes ever had a falling out? Howe and Downes seemed to have coupled up.

                  Was Downes sidelined during AIMR?

                  YES turned into factions pretty fast

                  White and Squire

                  Howe and Downes

                  Trevor and wife Jill (move into production only)

                    My guess is Telephone Secrets and probably Can you imagine would of been included
