Author Jon Kirkman has a track record of working with Yes and various members of the group on a number of important projects dating back some 35 years. In 2013 Time And A Word: The Yes Interviews was published in a high end luxury edition signed by members of the group.
Which was fine if you had a deep wallet. The book is now to be made available as a more affordable large format softback edition under a new title: “Yes Dialogue”. It sports a new cover and updated content, and is produced with the full authorisation of Yes and their management (and will be promoted by them through their official website).
Over the years in his role as a broadcaster Jon Kirkman has spoken to 16 of the 18 full time members (many more than once) who have passed through the ranks of Yes, and this cache of rare interviews form the core of the book. Jon has also spoken to other people who have contributed to the story, such as Phil Franks, the photographer for The Yes Album, and Roger Dean who designed stage sets for the band and painted numerous now iconic sleeves for the band.
In this updated edition of the book, Jon has spoken to both Chris Squire and Geoff Downes about the latest Yes studio album Heaven and Earth and again to Roger Dean about the artwork for this. He has also tracked down Robert Hagger and Clive Bayley for a chat, founder members of Mabel Greer’s Toyshop, the band which evolved into Yes in the summer of 1968.
Add to this all the memorabilia and dozens of rarely seen photographs, and you will see why this book was described as a “must have” for Yesfans the world over.
This edition will be published in January 2017.
