So is the new release going to called vocals will fly in from here.
It's a great record. Mostly because of Trevor Horn.
I actually prefer the second half of the album to the Fly From Here suite.
I think that on the Fly From Here suite Benoit sounds very much like Horn. I guess it would be cool to hear the songs with Horn singing but I don't think there will be a huge difference. Still I know some of the band members say it will come out but I just don't see it coming out. Maybe a download only thing but I can't see any record label wanting to release it just because Horn is singing on it since he produced the first one already.
Yes announce weekend of London events to celebrate 50th anniversary
Really? Will it be only available in limited quantities at an event in London...?!
Next up? A Heaven & Earth re-release with new bass and drum tracks by Arthur Barrow and Chad Wackerman.
The wording is indeed bizarre. In the end, everything is limited somehow.
I hope not. I've been waiting to get this since I heard about it.
Limited or not, I'm just pleased to see this alternate version of Fly From Here from the full Drama era Yes line-up finally getting a release. Let's see if Trevor Horn will now give us that long-promised new Buggles album as well...
Bound to be released to the general public at a later point as well.
Spend the time and money to do a run of a few hundred copies?
And if he changes the song- and album titles. Maybe the artwork too...
Black Sabbath did the same thing with an EP of leftovers from their last album. It was fortunately online for download within days. Granted, Sabbath sold it at every tour stop of a months-long worldwide tour, so the percentage of fans who would upload such a thing to torrent sites is significantly smaller, but, it'll get out there, one way or another.
The fans who want to hear it will hear it.
The info is a little clearer on the official Yes site (like all "Team Rock" articles, this is cut and pasted from a press release);
YES World: Official website for the Prog Rock band YES
This is how YesWorld puts it:
To me, this could mean that the new edition will eventually be available elsewhere, but it's coming out first at the UK fan convention, where they will have only "limited numbers" rather than crates and crates of the things.
If they make it exclusive to the one event and never sell it anywhere afterwards, they're painting a target on their own backs for bootleggers.
I like "We Can Fly From Here" (as the song was called when first performed in 1980), but the title seems a little prosaic when you listen to the lyrics and realize it's a song about an airport. It's like writing a song called "Take Me Higher," which turns out to be about an elevator.
I'm in. Sold my 2011 vinyl for a decent $$ after it went out of print...it was a crappy pressing with major IGD issues right out of the box, so I'm in for this, big time, assuming it comes out on vinyl.
They didn't go through all that trouble for no one to hear it. It's just being launched at that event.
I finally got around to picking up Fly From Here a few days ago.
This is great news. I'd gotten the impression that the project might not be released after all. Though Benoit David's vocals are quite nicely done on the original release, I have a special place in my musical heart for the Drama line-up, and look forward to hearing the "proper" follow-up to Drama. Having Trevor re0mix it is also intriguing. Like the rest of you, though, I wish it were being given a more broadly accessible release.
For a while, this song was going to form the core of what became the second Buggles album, Adventures In Modern Recording, along with Sad Night At The Airfield, Life On A Film Set (then still known by its working title of Riding A Tide - even though Riding A Tiger was always the actual lyric) and Vermillion Sands. If my understanding is correct, much of this material was recorded as demos for a potential follow-up to Drama yet recorded before the sessions for that LP, as it should be noted that "We Can Fly From Here" was the first song Trevor offered to Yes upon joining the group with Geoff in early 1980. Of course, all this changed when they both left, with Geoff then quitting Buggles on the first day of recordings for their reclaimed material to instead reunite with Steve Howe in Asia. Despite the liner notes of the 2010 expanded reissue for Adventures In Modern Recording claiming otherwise, Trevor's demos of the songs eventually revisited by Yes on Fly From Here three decades later weren't from the end of 1980, but can be dated back to winter earlier the same year, with many unofficial compilations of the Drama outtakes sourcing these from a cassette once belonging to Eddie Offord, who only produced that album's preliminary instrumental tracks, confirming they existed by April.
my guess is a general release not too long after this fan event in London. "by popular demand" I would imagine the press release will say
good album though, so if there's a vinyl edition I'll be picking it up. Take note, YES productions
Count me in. I also thought this project was abandoned. I am sure this will be released to the general public at some point. It better be!
Bring on a Drama/FFH tour!
While Chris Squire was alive, after FFH was released, I kept telling my buddy who works for Yes when they tour that this was the most viable option!
Hopefully not too limited, or it just means a few available there and then a general release to follow.
