Ok Yes heads, here is a brand new show from the taper's master tape! This is pretty much an uncirculated Fragile show from the US winter/spring tour. The taper, Steve Quinn, was kind enough to offer his recording for distribution and apparently I was an early responder so I was sent the raw show on CD. I made a few tweaks such as a minor speed correction, added a little bottom-end, and removed 2-second track gaps & retracked. Here are the taper's comments on the show and lineage:
"You're the first to get a copy. I'm really not terribly concerned about it becoming widely available. As for the method of transfer, I used an Ion USB turntable with an input for cassette decks. As for the original recording, it was a little Sony portable deck with built in mike. We were seated pretty high up but facing the stage straight on. That's all I remember. The thing has been gathering dust for a lot of years till I got this turntable and decided to transfer it. I made copies of it for friends decades ago but doubt if any of those are in circulation....
The order on the tape is the order on the disc. It was a short set as they weren't top-billed at that show. The set list looks similar to that at San Bernardino but with YIND as an encore (I guess). I'm almost certain that nothing was played between Perpetual Change (when the tape ran out) and Your Move when I got it flipped over. The set went like this:
Heart of the Sunrise
Perpetual Change (incomplete)
Your Move (lost a cappella intro)
Yours Is No Disgrace
The only possible deviation would be between Perpetual Change and Your Move. I'm pretty certain we would have remembered if Howe had played a solo in there. I would have been kicking myself all these years for missing it.
Pretty sure this is the whole set."
