The Rolling Stones – On Air

The Rolling Stones are set to release a collection of rarely heard radio recordings from their embryonic years.
Aptly titled ‘ The Rolling Stones – On Air ’, the album consists of songs Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman recorded for BBC shows including Saturday Club, Top Gear, Rhythm and Blues and The Joe Loss Pop Show between 1963 and 1965.
Making the release highly enticing for Rolling Stones aficionados, eight of the songs included have never been recorded or released commercially. Conversely, seven of the tracks were debuted on the airwaves before featuring on future Rolling Stones albums and EPs.

Yes New Live Album

Yes are set to release a new live album later this autumn.
Titled ‘Topographic Drama – Live Across America’, the extensive live record is released on double-CD and triple-LP formats on Friday 24th November. Both versions feature stunning cover artwork from the band’s longtime collaborator Roger Dean.
The album was recorded over 12 dates on Yes’s summer 2016 North American tour that saw the band open by performing their 1980 album ‘Drama’ in its entirety for the very first first time.
Following ‘Drama’, Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes, Billy Sherwood, Jon Davison and additional drummer Jay Schellen played songs from two of Yes’s best-selling albums: ‘And You And I’ from 1972’s ‘Close To The Edge’ and ‘Heart Of The Sunrise’ from 1971’s ‘Fragile’.
The set list then moved on to sides one and four from Yes’ 1973 double-album ‘Tales From Topographic Oceans’, before the album reaches an emphatic finale with ‘Roundabout’ from ‘Fragile’ (1971) and ‘Starship Trooper’ from ‘The Yes Album’ (1971)
