Going for the One Tour
Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum
Oakland, CA

The date 7-7-7 marked the 30th anniversary of the release of Going For The One, reuniting the "Classic Yes Line-up," so I thought it would be fun to seed the shows I have in my collection on or near the dates of their 30th anniversaries.

Audience recording by unknown, remastered 2007 by TheTooleMan
Lineage: Source: > mono cassette MASTER> digitized and mastered in 1997- denoised with Arboretum Ionizer> dynamic range expanded and EQ'd with WAVES C4 and Renaissance EQ in Peak 2> MacFlac -> (TheTooleMan) Sound Forge -> FLAC

This is a recording of the second of two nights Yes played in Oakland. Quality is slightly improved from the recording that was downloaded by a friend who gave it to me. (See "Original Info.txt" for more information.) I found the files I received to have some clipping, which I removed. It also ran a little slow (flat), so I raised the pitch of the recording by 50 cents and moved the track boundaries closer to the beginning of songs.

According to the original info file, And You And I and Awaken are both patched from "the Chicago show," which may have been either 1977-09-02 or 1977-09-03. I could not find the point at which the patch is inserted.
