Comments: Here's another Yes/ARW Recording. This one from a place that I've seen Yes play many times in the past. Like the Port Chester show, I was pretty close to the stage (though not as close as Port Chester). This one has a bit more audience distraction, but it is Connecticut after all! Jon mentioned stopping at Walgreens to get something for his throat, and that the air conditioning messes with his voice. So he may have been having some troubles, but you wouldn't know it from the performance. His voice was typically angelic, and strong as ever, even if he couldn't remember all the words!

This recording came out pretty great, despite some challenges. First of all, for . the first few songs, and the last two, the crowd was standing. Being as close to the stage as I was, most of my sound was coming from the speakers on the stage facing out to the crowd, but when the crowd was standing, those speakers were blocked. This caused those songs to be a bit more muffled than the middle of the show. I wound up performing some additional EQ on those sections, to try to bring the sound closer to the rest of the recording. Also, during "South Side Of The Sky", people were still standing, but the guy in the first row who was blocking the speaker sat down, so the sound was extra song there for a while (rivaling the Port Chester show, but just for part of the song). There is a fair deal of comotion during "Owner" as security was tyring to clear the aisles, for Trevor and Rick's jaunt through the crowd. There some screams and stray whistles, mostly between songs. So I would say this is not quite as good as Port Chester, but still a very nice recording.

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.
