"Very cool... it's such an exciting project to be involved in..."

-  Billy Sherwood - bass player of the band 'Yes'. 

"I wish you luck with the project..."

- Chris Squire (1948 - 2015) bass player with The Syn, Mabel Greer's Toyshop and Yes.

Mabel Greer's Toyshop was founded by Clive Bayley and Bob Hagger in London in 1966. 

 

Members included Chris Squire, Peter Banks, Tony Kaye, Jon Anderson and Bill Bruford. The band changed its name to YES in August 1968.

 

Mabel Greer's Toyshop reformed in 2013 after Bayley met Hagger again after 45 years, they recorded a new album with ex-Mabel and YES member Tony Kaye, YES bass player Billy Sherwood and jazz-fusion bass player Hugo Barré. The band released the album on March 9, 2015  - entitled "New Way Of Life".

 

The music is marked by a combination of psychedelic, blues and internationally influenced arrangements with poetic lyrics. Hope you enjoy this renovated blast from the past!
