London, UK – It took 48 years and 21 studio albums for supergroup Yes to be elected to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, and the band that evolved into Yes in 1968, Mabel Greer’s Toyshop, has just released a new single to celebrate only their second album. Mabel has found a novel way of releasing new musical works and is releasing one track per month for eight months the second track is now available. The songs are initially available as downloads and buying all eight songs will qualify for a free CD and booklet at the end.
Since founding members Clive Bayley and Bob Hagger reunited in 2014, the band has written and produced this second album inside 2 years. The first offering “New Way Of Life” was co-produced by Yes, bass player Billy Sherwood, who also featured on the album playing bass and keyboards. Tony Kaye, original organist for Mabel Greer and for Yes, also played on “New Way Of Life”.
“Here come some fresh new Mabel Greer sounds, slowly savor the songs one at a time, rather than trying to digest the whole album in one sitting”; said composer, singer and guitarist, Clive Bayley. “This new offering called “The Secret” is comprised of all exciting new material Prog fans will love”; added Bob Hagger.
Hugo Barré, on bass guitar, accompanies Bayley and Hagger along with a new addition to the band, Max Hunt on multiple keyboards and who co-produced this new album through his company Force Ten Productions.
