Comments: I can't say enough about The Egg. I just love this venue. The acoustics are absolutely fantastic. This was a great show. This tour is the best they've sounded since 2004. This show was no exception. I was fortunate to be sitting in a sweet spot, and there is no chatter, or the usual "Billy, you the man!" screams that are normally heard at Yes concerts. I think much of this stems from the fact that while there is a bar in the lobby, you are not allowed to bring drinks inside the venue. Less drunks means less inane crowd noise!

As for the recordings, I made two seperate recordings using both sets of microphones I own. They both came out spectacular. These are perhaps, the best sounding recordings I've made in the 11+ years of recording shows. This recording was something I always wanted to try. Hooked up the mics and battery box to the line in on the Blue Mikey and recorded direct to my iPhone. There was no way to control the recording level, so I had no idea how this would come out. It turned out fantastic. Only issue I could find with this setup is that sometimes when the sound was quiet, the recording becomes mono for a few seconds before it gets louder again. It has to be real quiet for this to happen, and only happened a few times for a split second each. Other than that, I'm having a tough time deciding which recording is better. I couldn't be happier with how these came out.

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.
