I awoke this morning from a stimulating dream about Yes and progressive music. It was an unusual dream in that I visualized listening to a Yes recording with much of the dream focused on a woodcut edition of Roger Dean album art. I think this was all due to looking at Yes hi-res recordings on the Pono Music Store before I went to bed last night 😉
I sat down with my breakfast this morning and searched the Pono Music Store once again. My searches focused on the Yes Relayer recording in 192/24 resolution format. I’m confident the cover art in my dreams was Relayer. I must confess I know very little about that recording nor I have ever listened to it. I toyed with the idea of purchasing and downloading the Pono edition of the recording when I saw a side note inquiring if this recording was the recent Steven Wilson remix. I learned from the Official Yes Website that the Steven Wilson edition contained far more content in the Blu-Ray/CD edition and was 96/24 hi-res.
Steven Wilson has been the point person since 2009 remixing the Four Horsemen of Progressive Rock King Crimson, Jethro Tull, ELP, and Yes. His precision engineering and keen ear has increased the listening experience of many classic recordings.
Steven Wilson’s 2015 focus will be to support his next recording, Hand. Cannot. Erase. which becomes available March 3rd, 2015. I am considering the Blu-Ray Hi-Res release.
Steven Wilson placed reasonably priced tickets on sale for the USA/Canada leg of Tour 2015. I’d love to see him perform. It could be a dream come true 😉
