Steven Wilson remixes Yes’ Relayer

Yes have confirmed a re-release of 1974 album Relayer, with new 5.1 and high-resolution stereo mixes by Steven Wilson.

Due at the end of October, the title includes restored artwork approved by Roger Dean, new sleeve notes by Prog writer Sid Smith and bonus material to be announced in the coming weeks.

Yes’ seventh studio outing was the only one to feature keyboardist Patrick Moraz after the departure of Rick Wakeman. Side one consisted of a single track, The Gates Of Delirium, while side two contains Sound Chase and To Be Over.

Relayer will be available in CD/DVD-A and CD/Blu-ray formats. The band recently launched 21st album Heaven & Earth, which frontman Jon Davison last week described as a “lighter shade” of the band.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
