According to the latest Classic Rock,  Anderson and Wakeman will be recording new material and the CD will be on sale at the first show of the tour, going on general release afterwards. There will also be a live DVD filmed at Buxton available by Christmas.
 
Rick also says "I would be very surprised if Jon ever stands in front of a band again".

Well, by now no more news have come about this project, I'm starting to feel it won't happen. However, an Anderson Wakeman semi-acoustic mini-tour on UK is already planned, and a CD and DVD is bound to be released.

Even if it has rained a lot since Union it's a bit surprising that Wakeman wants to work again with Rabin.

And if Rabin is in the project, it's already a bad sign... I'm not expecting much.

"Flash (with no connection to Yes remaing anyway) is releasing an album of their own (if I understood well those threads about Flash reuniting)."

You understood correctly, Dellinger.  Flash has reunited (without ex-Yes guitarist Peter Banks) and a new CD is in the works.  They made their reunion debut at ProgDay 2010...

I'm not interested in another "Roundabout" ... I would rather have another masterpiece like "Tales of Topographic Oceans" or "Relayer", or "Close To The Edge" but not sure that Rick thinks that stuff is original enough to compare to the classical artists he prays tribute to all the time.

And I certainly do not wish to listen to another washed out version of Yes and their material!
Pretty much the same feeling i get when i hear about a new Yes project.
I'd rather c them work with other artists making new and interesting music, than form one of those reunion
bands, and make something that sounds a bit Yes'ish, without the experimentation and energy  Yes had in their prime. Sadly in sure there financial advisers think otherwise Smile

Is it just me, or does the history of Yes seem an awful lot like a bad soap opera?
 
Anyways, I look forward to pretty much anything Wakeman's involved in, and with Anderson on the boat for sure, it'll at least be good - but that doesn't mean it'll be Yes.
 
Here's hoping Howe, maybe even Squire, get involved.  If nothing else, getting Wakeman involved more or less ensures that this isn't going to be another one of those failed "No" line-ups that have plagued the band for decades.

Well I for one am excited about it. Now I can actually look forward to a Yes-ish project without having to resort to that cover band that has been touring with the karaoke singer.

As far as I understand, Howe in not to be involved on this Wakeman / Anderson project (he's part of Yes). As far as Rabin's involvement, well, Wakeman stated he was planning to work with Anderson this year, and also that he was planning to work with Rabin this year. The guys at the page I read about this Wakeman / Anderson / Rabin project made the connection, though I'm not totally sure about how sure they were that the three would be working together. They seemed pretty sure, and were also pretty sure a 4th Yes-man was to be involved.

Yep, the JA/RW tour was an absolute delight.

I really look forward to not just the LP & tour, but also the endless arguments on PA about which is more vital, relevant, proggy.......and so onWink


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

Man, the chemistry of these cats is SO complex!!  I can never tell if Howe is more invested in Yes, "kinda-Yes" (with Benoit David), or Asia!  

Considering the apparently bad feelings posted by Jon Anderson about Yes' decision to tour without him, I'd be willing to bet we see a reprise of ABWH without Howe, maybe just AW with some other guys?

Rabin would be OK, but he's not my favorite...there are tons of talented axe-men out there they could pick up who would make it much more interesting!   Same for bass and drums.  Bring in some new faces, please!

Could get interesting, thanks for the information!

What about Howe?  Is he in the equation anywhere?   If it weren't for his style, added into the mix, I would have never gotten into Yes.  On that note, I can only hope this so called "Yes album"  will be reminiscent of early yes!

I understand that they are indeed thinking about releasing an album this year. So we may just as well have 2 Yes albums (of sorts) released this year. It will be interesting to see who makes a better work, if indeed both albums are released.

Now that sound much more interesting than whatever the current Yes (which is not Yes in my opinion) might be doing! Looking forward for this!!!
