Eddie Offord sits in his penthouse flat,way above the traffic that thunders down the Vauxhall Bridge Road past Victoria.
Since his success with the "Yes Album," Eddie has become one of the most sought after engineer-producers and one of the most successful, with Yes and ELP among the top acts he works with and for.
Offord has an amazing memory for the recordings he has made, and he says that each recording he hears that he has worked on is from a certain part of his life.

 Pallas (band) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A highlight of their set at that time and also a highlight of the early Marquee shows (until the Marquee threatened to ban the band if they did not stop playing it) was a track called "The Ripper".
After releasing a self-produced LP entitled Arrive Alive (recorded in Scotland in 1981), Pallas was courted by EMI records (who had just signed contemporaries Marillion) and thrust into the studio with none other than Yes/ELP wunderkind Eddie Offord to record the LP that would become The Sentinel.
When the album was finally released on CD, it was in a remixed version with additional songs that had been written for the album and released as singles, but not included on the original release.

He came in with TYA, a very important album, because at the time it was either going to make or break Yes with the record company and as we all know very well now, it made them.
From a musical context though I agree with the other posts that Eddie's genius was a vital ingredient to much of the early/middle period work.
Just as George Martin was clearly the 5th Beatle, I say Eddy Offord is the 6th member of Yes.

Eddie Offord, though he had his difficulties with Yes and their music, did such great work in the seventies with them, it is difficult to believe that he actually hated it!

 Drama (Yes album) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Recorded that spring and released in August, Drama featured a much harder-edged Yes with a distinct new wave flavor (in no small part due to the two new recruits).
Perhaps to ensure that some of the old glory was there, Roger Dean was commissioned to design his first Yes cover in five years, and Eddie Offord, who had co-produced the band in their 1971-1974 heydey, returned to the studio for assistance.
Drama fared well in the UK charts, reaching #2 there, but American audiences were not so sure, with Drama becoming Yes's first album there in years to not reach the Top 10 or go gold.

 Progressive Rock Forum: Question on Close to the Edge...
Eddie was practically the sixth member of the band, and Yes acknowledged this by including a picture of him, and giving him equal status in that regard.
I have seen other pictures of Eddie Offord, there's one in the liner notes of the Rhino remaster of Tales from Topographic Oceans, he has a cigarette in his hand.....and Eddie did a lot of work for ELP as well.
There's another picture of Eddie Offord at the YesYears (box set) booklet, placed at the back of Pete Frame's Yes Family Tree.

This is where the Move had just recorded their first self titled album where Offord and Chevin had been the sound engineers.
Roy managed to convince Eddie and Gerald to see the Idle Race at the Cedar Club and it was soon after, that they offered to help the Idle Race record their debut album.
Eddie Offord and Gerald 'Peanuts' Chevin must be congratulated as the Birthday Party album is fully of creative editing, short samples and sound effects which compliment the bizzare nature of the subject material!

Well, I'll even concede that there are some decent 10- to 12-minute songs buried in here, but at 18 to 21 minutes, they just collapse under their own weight.
It's frightening to think that some of these cuts were originally as long as 28 minutes, before Eddie Offord got out the scissors.
It's also scary to think of what a mishmash the songs must have been in their uncut form, because even truncated to fit on an LP side, there is absolutely no focus.

Out of an almost morbid curiosity, assuming they could leave the past in the past, I'd be very interested in hearing what the boys could do reuniting with Eddie Offord.
I think much of Eddie's success was due to the fac the was stoned out of his mind, Ithink that brought the creativity out of him.
Eddie Offord, well.....I don't think he would be interested, at least he didn't talk very complimentary about them in interviews over the last decade.

Between the songs he told all the famous stories, about the cowbells and "teatime" with Eddie Offord ("four o'clock Eddie rolled some "teas" for us").
He really seemed to have fun, he joked with Chris and Steve all the time and especially enjoyed doing "The revealing science of God", "I've seen all good people" on which he played guitar back to back with Chris.
This guy might be a great producer/engineer and he might bring a lot of energy to the band, but although there's no doubt that he is as important to the band as Eddie Offord was in the 70s, they didn't give Eddie a guitar and put him onstage, did they?.

They were sent to Atlanta, Georgia, USA, to record the new album at Eddie Offord's studio.
Cut And Run was written around the same time as Paris Is Burning (actually, these two songs come from one instrumental song), and Eyes In The Night was called Arrive Alive previously, and played live many times.
The recording went alright, but when Eddie Offord was asked to do another job, he mixed the Pallas album is less time than he should have done, and the band were not completely happy with the results.

 Goblin: Massimo Morante Interview
When the English singer who sung on the "Cherry five" record put us in contact with Eddie Offord, the producer of the "Yes", who was interested in our new musical projects, we were sure (maybe too much) that that was our good chance.
We rented a piano in Keith Emerson's studio and recorded some demos, playing some concerts in some English schools which, in the end, made us gain very little money...

will spring to mind, although they kicked off as being probably the most "prog" of the bunch, having worked with acclaimed producer Eddie Offord (Yes, ELP) on the Patrick Woodroffe packaged debut Sentinel.
Both bass and guitar get so close to their Yes equivalent that at times you’d think Pallas has joined forces with Anderson and friends, or maybe old pal Eddie Offord gave them an old reel of unissued Yes material ?
The absolute highlight on this album certainly has to be the lengthy “Midas Touch” containing so many different atmospheres, it's as if they were different chapters in a book.

“Hell or High Water” reunited Ellis with former producer Eddie Offord, who has worked with legendary progressive rock bands Emerson, Lake, and Palmer and Yes, in addition to producing Ellis’ “Storm Warning” record.
The pairing of Ellis and Offord is clearly clicking.
On “Hell or High Water”, Ellis showcases an extensive catalog of fiery blues riffs, but offers the listener much more than just the everyday standard guitar crunch.
