Comments: What a great time this is for Yes fans! We had the Anderson Ponty shows in the spring, a great Yes tour in the summer, and now Anderson Rabin Wakeman. Like it or not, the classic lineup will never be again. I'm okay with that. I've enjoyed the recent Yes tours, especially the shows this past summer. And now I have these shows to enjoy as well. I am a bit disappointed with the setlist. I would have loved if they hit the Rabin era a bit more. This setlist is pretty standard stuff. I guess it is a good starting place for the ARW unit, and hopefully future tours will bring more variety. They have definitely gotten much tighter than the opening shows from Florida. Despite a couple minor flubs, there is a freshness that seems to come through with the performance.

Once again I made two recordings. I was going to two different external microphone recordings like I did the Yes show from Albany earlier this year. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. This one uses the Blue Mikey's internal microphone. I have mixed feelings about recordings made with internal mics. On one hand, it makes it very easy for just about anyone to make a half-way decent recording. On the other, external microphones always sound better and tapers that might try to use nice microphones might not ever try it. I've been using the Blue Mikey/iPhone combination as a backup, because why not? In this case, it's possible that this one sounds better than the CA11 recording. It sounds more natural to me, despite not having the best seperation. That's why I am posting both, and will leave it to the listener to decide which they like better. Perhaps a matrix is inevitable, but that will have to wait for a different day!

Artwork is included in the torrent. The photos are from the actual show.

Please share this recording in unaltered lossless quality. If you need to remaster, or something, let me know, and I can provide the undedited raw master (without EQ/volume tweaks) for you to use.
