Yes, “Heart of the Sunrise” from Like It Is (2015): One Track Mind

Most of the focus, fair or not, with Yes’ upcoming live project will be on Jon Davison. The band’s current frontman, he played a major role in their most recent studio effort, but is only just now being included on Yes’ live recordings. And so, long-time fans will likely be studying Davison, more than the rest, as he works his way through a legendary moment from Yes’ vast discography like “Heart of the Sunrise,” originally the epic closing track from 1971’s Fragile.

There is, however, a lot more to Like It Is: Yes at the Mesa Arts Center, as the bracing news of bassist Chris Squire’s serious illness continues to reverberate. The project, to be released as a 2CD/DVD in July 2015 via Frontiers, gives us another chance to fully explore Squire’s genius at the bass.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
