YES * Jon Anderson * Steve Howe * Chris Squire * Rick Wakeman * Bill Bruford
The first of 2 nights in NYC, this audience tape sat around for a long time before it was unearthed in the summer of 2001. Yes shared the bill with either Humble Pie, The Kinks, ELP or Ten Years after on this leg of the USA tour, and it's not clear which it was tonight. Earlier in the year they opened for Black Sabbath and would do so again in the while supporting "Fragile." I believe this is one of the opening sets simply because they didn't include Heart Of the Sunrise. But maybe the moog was acting up. Who knows?
While no microphone information was included, this recording is MasterCassette>CDR>CDR>SHN using a Phillips Stand Alone unit, then copied to the hard drive and tracked and burned.
This version was remastered by Matt Putzel in 2002.
