More information: Legendary Pre-YES band MABEL GREER’S TOYSHOP (Chris Squire, Peter Banks, Tony Kaye and Jon Anderson were in the band at one time), have reunited and release a new album entitled ‘NEW WAY OF LIFE’.
"The album includes new versions of old classics like Beyond & Before, and a whole lot of new music too," says Clive Bayley, singer, guitarist and song writer. New Way of Life has been co-produced by YES producer and former member Billy Sherwood who also plays keyboards alongside Tony Kaye and bass alongside Hugo Barré on the album. Mabel Greer’s Toyshop delivers a vibrant, high-energy and sometimes unworldly sound from an eclectic mix of old and new music.
Two of the songs, now with new versions, ‘Beyond & Before’ and ‘Sweetness’, featured on the very first YES album in 1969; the former co-written by Clive Bayley and Chris Squire and the latter by Bayley, Squire and Jon Anderson. Other new versions of old songs on the album co-written by Bayley and Squire are: ‘Jeanetta’, ‘Get Yourself Together’, ‘Images of You & Me’ and ‘Electric Funeral’. The other tracks are all new works written mainly by Bayley.
