Back in the old days who was panning the arguments 360 degrees while Mo and Roye were having during Oddysee?

If Roye was center channel unless Mo was singing along with him then hRoye became the left channel and Mo became the right channel. When Taff joined in he was on the left channel for vocals? What channel was Ron on? Or an I off altogether?

I know  a bunch of songs sprang forth from songs like "Cast Your Fate" and "Please Don't Be Very Long" however, I am not sure if any Nektar songs started out from a snippet of Recycle or any of the other songs so my question is did any? if so what songs were they?

Did the Good Ole RocknRoll suite come from the Prophecy days or was that created after Roye and Mick joined the band?

The "suite" (which has contained different rockin' standards over the years), probably stemmed from both Prophecy and Rainbows, as padding out four or five sets a night led to an inevitable "12-bar rocker" being thrown into the repertoire of both bands somewhere along the way.
The medley of Johnny B Goode, Sweet li'l rock 'n roller, L'il Queenie & Blue Suede Shoes etc. began around 1971 as an encore..... I'm also pretty sure Prophecy played Johnny B Goode in the summer of 1969 when we were in Fuerth together.
As for the "jibberish chatter" in "Never Never Never" (the extention to the Oddysey suite).. as Mo said, Vinnie panned the microphones live, however Dieter Dierks panned them during the "Sounds Like This" recording. Who was where in the panning didn't matter... as audience confusion was the goal... until "Never never never" was shouted by Roye at the climax. 
BTW.. On stage, actual comments were made between Roye, Taff & Mo if one listened very carefully.
Ron sometimes bent down and added his two cents through a drum microphone.

What Yes song did Nektar play live?  Beside the Good Ole RocknRoll medley, did Nektar play any other songs by any other bands? What were they?

I KNOW this "cover" question has been asked (and answered) before, maybe it was during the
"on this day in......" series, or maybe during our soundbites series....
These are some of the cover toons I remember we did at small German clubs early in 1970...
Hey Joe (Jimi), Better by You.. (Spooky Tooth), two Zeppelin songs (tryin' to remember which),
SWAK (Brian Hyland), Evil Woman (Spooky Tooth) and a Vanilla Fudge number (Mo or Ron might remember even more).
All these covers had distinctive Nektar arrangements, tho' all were gone from our repertoire by 1971.
Rondo (Nice) also comes to mind... tho' I'm not sure if that was Prophecy or Nektar.
Stormy Monday was also one we later played on very rare occasions.

How did Helmut Wenske and Klaus Holitzka come to work for Nektar? Did they sell any of their work at concerts? What were their jobs / roles?

Questions, questions....
Helmut and Klaus were both artists.... they worked for themselves.
However, they did work "with" us on projects (especially if commissioned by Bellaphon).
Holly sometimes sold posters of his art at our merchandise tables in the 70s.
Various examples by both artists were included in the lightshow... so it worked both ways.
The Tab cover was our first example of a commissioned Wenske, while our logo (the "Beeman") is probably his best known Nektar art.   
 
BTW Wayne,   ....which "Yes" song did Nektar play live?
