I recieved this in a trade just a few months after the show.
digitized for posting for the first time from this tape in
September 2009. there is a very slight cut-in to long distance
runaround after a tape flip (just a few seconds into it). that
is the only missing part of this show. although hardly an ideal
venue (arena) for a yes show, the taper of this found a section
with good sound and not alot of crowd interference.
maybe Trevor Rabin isn't an "original" yes member, but he did
a good job in this concert, and the rest of this group is really
yes, so I don't have to say it's yes, sorta/kinda/maybe.
It's not from Close to the Edge or Tales from T.O. (or even
Relayer) but this really is a Yes torrent. (it's even got Jon
Anderson in it). This appears to be the whole show, since they
weren't adding "I'm Down" or "sweet dreams" or anything else
that I've heard after the roundabout in this tour as they
occasionally did in 75 and 76 era. some of these 84 shows
were good, others not so good. This was a pretty good show.
thanks to Phil in Binghampton for making a nice recording of it
and sharing a 1st gen. copy with me from his master cassettes.
there is a little volume variation in the 1st track from getting
the levels set but after that, to quote the great Adrian Belew
(not heard in this band's shows), "it remains consistent". I haven't
seen this one circulating so thought I'd share this one.
Do not sell this recording.
(that makes yes say no)
Share freely, losslessly and gaplessly.
