From the vast library of Bill B comes this 2nd gen tape of the 2nd night of the Tormato tour.
All of the problems with previous copies of this tape are present here, but this transfer is much crisper and clearer with no pops or clicks or major dropouts. There are still a few missing chunks, but it seems like nothing more than 10-15 seconds for a tape flip, and those all come between songs.

The background noise remains at the same level throughout, Jon's comments are easy to make out and everyone is pretty clear in the mix. Lots of crazy interplay between Howe & Wakeman... all these early "Release, Release" shows seem to have a very different vibe. GFTO was the final encore which I don't think was planned, but they were all having a ball so went for it.

The placement of "Clap" before the big medley may have been the taper's to fit it onto 2 tapes, but I think they really did play it in this order. There's a splice at the end of "Circus Of Heaven" right into the opening strums of the Clap, which is probably the 1st tape flip, definitely followed by the "DKtW". Thanks to the Yesyears box, we can title the little jam they did on this night as "Vevey," and it is an interesting placement leading into OtSWoF.

A really cool show. I just love all the commentary made by the tapers during the show. See? There were Yescritics at every tour!

The transfers were done quite a while back and Matt was kind enough to do a little bit of tweaking to this. His work was very subtle but I think is an improvement. Both the RAW and De-Hissed versions are included here, so you can now all go and remaster this to your heart's content.

Endless, endless thanks to the Taper – this nearly if not completely miraculous AR wouldn’t exist for us to enjoy without his bravery and expertise, then and now

STRENGTHS [please also see "weaknesses" further down]:

Performance - Yet another unbelievable one from Yes' last '70s album tour, its pioneering in-the-round presentation with revolving stage and 360 degree "flying" PA system. The sound was astonishing even by today’s standards. As had often been true in previous years, the tour began before its featured new album (TORMATO) was released and astonished audience reactions to the new pieces are captured here. Typically innovative but clinical sounding new works in studio came to life on the road – among them "Release Release", and a top shelf AR of it no less. "The Big Medley" of older numbers also took nearly everyone by surprise in an era before Internet spoilers.

Source and mastering effort – For 1978 a top quality audience cassette made with one of the best then-available decks captured all the energy official, SBD-based "live" releases rarely if ever do, and in as much or more detail. Here in all its digitally transferred glory is the original master itself.

The source almost couldn’t be better even as reel to reel. There are other cassette "AR"s from the period of even better technical quality in visual analysis at least, yet this one has all their aural detail plus a 'warmth' on playback I haven't heard in others graphing better visually.

Most mastering was limited to pitch and tempo correction commonly needed in high end ARs from the 70s due to their source decks’ extensive manual setting requirements. The rest consisted of minimal high and mid frequency EQ work to reveal existing detail and mitigate some ‘distance’ resulting from the Boston Garden echo chamber’s habit of swallowing up sound from even Yes’ exceptional 1978-1980 system.

WEAKNESSES:

Performance - Despite their usual consummate professionalism Yes had a rather difficult night on 30 June 1978, largely due to the energy drain of "Release Release". It was so demanding even for Yes the subsequent performance of "Parallels" suffered as well, despite a break for Steve Howe’s solo, and in both cases vocals in particular. It was also only the tour’s 3rd engagement so a few stumbles were nearly inevitable. The following night they nailed “Release Release”, everything else went off as well if not better, and even their sound engineer seemed to do a better job of coping with the Garden’s acoustics, but no AR of that show I know of has this one’s quality.

Source and overall sound - Some imbalance resulting from sound engineer having difficulty with keyboard channels at times. Wakeman in fact drops out of the PA mix completely more than once, and is frequently, unusually low in the mix. Venue reverb very strong, but as part of the document left alone. The ‘distance’ mentioned – primarily effecting Jon’s vocals, keyboards and midrange percussion - remains and is more noticeable in some segments than others, but could be a lot worse considering the AR platform and venue. The taper notes:

“I remember being unsure as to how to aim the mikes at the circular sound system. I didn't see much in the way of monitors on stage, and they would have rotating anyway. So both mikes had to be aimed up at the sound system. I had no idea how much separation was needed to get a good stereo image with balanced levels. So whatever you hear on the recording was my best guess at the time.”

Whatever this contributed to any distant properties, I’d call his guess pretty f-g good, especially considering a PA system configuration no one had ever seen before.

Perhaps due to cassette type, the recording is hissy for its source yet not bad enough to warrant the primitive chainsaw of currently available digital NR technology. Neither distance nor tape noise is aggravated by any tape generations or the extensive EQ work often needed to overcome them thankfully.

Dropouts are almost inevitable with cassette ARs so old, and there are a few of them here. Some strange source distortion can be heard during one bridge of “Heart of the Sunrise”. A kind of 'creaking' mechanical noise likely due to deck or mic movement is evident now and then but especially during Wakeman’s solo and the harp solo intro to “Awaken”. The taper reports:

“I can't say for sure, but it's possible that the mikes were hand-held at that show. I had a very lightweight, collapsible mike stand that clamped onto anything available, including seats. Unfortunately, it was kind of flimsy and people walking by often bumped into it. It was also prone to breaking at the worst possible time, so I always brought a pair of modified socks that could be used to hold the mikes when necessary. To get a feeling for that experience, try holding an object at roughly head level for two hours.”

My arms ache just thinking about it, and it makes this taper’s heroism even more impressive. Some low frequency rumbling during quieter moments may also have been a result of movement [resembles wind gusts]. Like hiss and other noise these will not come out without taking important signal detail with them, so I left them alone. A couple of tape flips had to be trimmed and spliced, and are noticeable but occur between tracks effecting audience sound only.

Here’s hoping “B78” adds real joy to many lives. Please share freely but never sell and please keep lossless. Happy time travels!

An independent ‘beta test’ listener had this to say meantime:

“The Boss Tone of Boston

Boston was evidently not a quiet place to see a
concert. When Peter Banks says that early Yes
was a band that would at most tolerate some
toe-tapping, he clearly had not yet been to Boston.
Ten years later, Boston welcomed Yes' tenth true
summer with loud enthusiasm, and Yes replied in kind.
how lucky it was for those who were there!

Fortunately for those of us who weren't there, there
is this tape. On it, we can hear just what Bostonian Yes
fans experienced in 1978. It isn't 100% perfect, nor
should it be. What it is, though, is a brilliantly
executed evening of this one-of-a-kind tour.
YESSONGS had brilliantly summarized the end of the
Bruford era. YESSHOWS similarly summarized the end of
the 70s, but not as neatly; by encompassing three very
different tours, it did not cover any of them well,
and 1978 least of all.

“B78” moves to rectify this. There are a lot of
considerations in any live recording: proper mixing,
good sound, and a desirable setlist are all
imperative, but even then it may not be a notable
performance. Getting all these variables to coincide
on a single evening borders on the impractical.

Nevertheless, here we have a show with all four
qualities, lovingly revealed by painstaking efforts:
Steve's liquid guitar lines, Rick's celestial
tapestries, and Alan's sharp snap all push away any
doubt. You can listen to it quietly if you must, but
Mr. Squire's bass was meant to rumble like a dinosaur,
and only proper volume captures him in full roar.
Therefore the listener is directed to play it as
loud as possible -- at the very least, until the
neighbors come knocking.

A lot of things made 1978 a fantastic and unique year
for Yes in concert: the medley, the better TORMATO
songs, the band still in their prime. While we can't
yet bring you the round stage and the light show,
we'll consider them when technology allows. Meanwhile,
enjoy this fan's-ear gem from the "tenth true summer"
of Yes: Boston Garden, 8/30/78.

are missing from this recording. although it was recorded with my tapes and deck, I didn't record it and wasn't there so I couldn't see what went wrong (and plenty did). what is here came out pretty well, but why so much was missing (besides taper arriving too late to save a drowning witch, oops, that was another show) I don't know. the recording gets a B but the taper gets a D+ for taper attentiveness in this recording, since there seems to be several cuts in the recording (and I gave the taper 2 new 90 min. cassettes to record this show). fortunately the only songs cut in here are Madrigal (cuts into it) and soon (VERY soon, just as Perpetual Change goes into it). it was not a short tour at all, just a short tour song here. this is a very incomplete recording of 1978 Yes show in Springfield. It's not real close up, not too far back, somewhere in between. not alot of crowd noise, a few sections were monoized because of one channel having brief static noises. this is now a good B quality recording with no annoying flaws/bumps or loud crowd noise. it's just missing six songs (not all in one part) It's not a "great" performance, pretty standard show but a good one.

Do not sell this recording.

Backstage at Madison Square Garden
New York City
1978

Lineage: FM broadcast -> possibly an open-mic recording from FM radio -> unknown -> audio CD -> Sound Forge -> Noise Reduction -> Audio CD -> EAC -> FLAC

What a cool tape this is! I can't emphasize that enough.

Alison Steele was possibly Yes Fan #1, but may be #2 if Ed Sciaky holds the top position. Here we have her presenting her interviews of four of the five members of the band backstage before one of their 1978 shows at Madison Square Garden, which one of the band members describes as the "highest" venue of the tour.

As I played back these recordings today, Ms. Steele's soothing voice put me in a very tranquil mood. Sadly, her short life was plagued for many years by cancer, and her career was interrupted by her galant fight to survive. I imagine that Yes music is one of the things that sustained her during that awful time.

The recording we have here may have been made by holding a microphone in front of an FM radio while the broadcast originated live from New York's WNEW-FM on an unknown date in 1978. The audio quality is fair, in that it sounds like it was recorded through a telephone. (Perhaps it was!) But every word is clear. The recordings contain no music, and the audio files contain no MP3 artifacts.

This recording came to me in a trade with no additional lineage that I recorded. While I did not document who sent it do me, and have now forgotten who it was, I'm very grateful to the person who sent it to me. (I suspect they may be reading this now. If so, drop me a line!)

Several years ago, I used Sonic Foundry Noise Reduction 2.0 to remove a lot of background noise and bring out the voices. This process introduced some artifacts into the sound. But Noise Reduction ultimately helps the clarity of the audio.

NOTE: the only music that appears in this recording comes from Yes "Tormato." In these cases, there are only a few seconds of instrumental music mixed low under Ms. Steele's voice. This was done during the original broadcast. The music is cut immediately after Ms. Steele stops talking.

130 minutes (complete Low Gen with 1 small patch from 1st gen alternate source)

From the incredibly huge collection of tapehead2 comes this low gen tape of the 2nd night of the 4-night run at MSG.
This is the 10th show of the Tormato tour, played several weeks before the September 20 release date of the album.
There are 2 tape sources for this show, the main one used here, which is an excellent and well-balanced stereo tape, and RB's partial tape of most of the show. On the main source here there is a bit of tape-warbling near the end of the big medley, a few garbled seconds here or there and a tape-flip in Soon. This was patched with RB's tape. There are some other pauses and flips between songs, and the one before CoH cuts a bit of Jon's intro, but that part wasn't on RB's tape either. There is another small cut during the quiet intro to Awaken where a few seconds go missing.
The transfers were done quite a while back, probably about 10 years. I received both tapes already transferred to disc and did the patching from RB's incomplete tape into the clearer tapehead2 source shortly after and did the patch in Sound Studio 2. No other EQ or processing was done.

On my scale, remembering that this is MSG, I'd give it an "A-" for sound. There is no harp jam tonight, but switching Parallels with HoTS freshens up the second half of the show quite well. And tonight, Rick is the man with the Fun Time Freddy. We would all benefit from hearing more from these 3 nights in the Garden, but as the lifespan of cassettes go, even with pristene care this is the year they will begin degrading into mush.

Yes: The Lostbrook Tape Series Volume 127 (Series Finale)

This tape surprised me in many ways. For over thirty years, I've had bad memories of "Tormato." Like some critics, I thought of it as one of the last gasps of the progressive era. I'm sure I never listened to the tape other than during the immediate aftermath of the concert. Over the years that it lay forgotten, I had convinced myself that it was poor, both in quality and performance. I couldn't have been more wrong. I was startled to discover that the quality was impressive and the performance was outstanding. Compared to the previous tour, our lower level seats were nothing special, but with the revolving center stage, they were much better
than we had anticipated. The sound system was extraordinary and was perhaps the best we had ever heard at the Garden in that era. Although the entire band is phenomenal this night, I consider this to be a Steve Howe masterpiece (even though he does come in early on "Awaken"). Anderson, Wakeman, and Squire have their jaw-dropping moments here, but this is probably the best performance I've ever captured of Steve Howe. I like everything about this tape, including the "whoo" guy and the "air-horn" guy. After all these years, I even find myself liking "Circus of Heaven" and "Don't Kill the Whale." The biggest surprise for me however is that I am unable to find another recording from this date. Reliable sources indicate that this is likely the sole source for this concert. I can think of no better way to end the series. Thanks for sharing this journey with me. Please see the bonus material for acknowledgements, closing thoughts, additional stories, and parting gifts.

Another from the vast library of Bill B. Great stereo separation, or fabulous mono? You tell me!
Clearly low gen-- wish I knew the recording setup. Anyway, another fine tape from '78! A really inspired Starship trooper and Jon mentions that it was a day in the sun "of the sun?" which makes me think it was an outside or afternoon show. Huge applause for CoH, a tape flip loses part of the Fish, and it comes back in during the Survival part, Starship Trooper has a funny intro, "For all you stargazers and space travelers, hurtling through space at incredible speeds..." (heh) and another tape flip at the beginning of Rick's solo. The audience REALLY loves their Wakey still..... a really great reading of Awaken, very different from the other CA ones I've heard. this one has it all and I'll bet it really kept 'em happy. You can hear some really excited Texans at the beginning and end, anyway.

This is a double LP vinyl bootleg. I recieved this in a trade several years ago. Due to my scanner being down I am unable to produce art work at the moment. I did find a picture of the cover in my travels on the net and added it for the moment. I noticed one scratch at the start of "I've Seen All Good People" and hope there are not others I've missed. I have not seen this boot in circulation and I am happy to add it to the trading community.
This is a SBD recording from the Tormato tour.
I hope you enjoy it.

Although there are several great soundboards from this tour including London 10-28-78, Qubec 4-18-79, and Chicago 6-9-79, this performance and the excellent quality of this audience recording stand out to me. In particular, I must have 60 different versions of Siberian Khatru, but Howe's solo at the end on this evening really shines. There's just a pure sound to the band during this period of touring that comes through in this recording. I can't explain beyond these points that I really like this particular show. The credit for this recording goes to someone in YES trading circles (my apologies at not remembering)
who put together this fine tree, including the 10-6-78 show, several years ago. This is not a soundboard, but it rates as a strong audience recording, A- sound. Lineage below.

Here we go again. 

Yes had just finished a well deserved vacation. The new album, Tormato had just been released in September and the band decided to kick off the supporting tour in the United States. After 38 shows in 43 days of a North American tour they took a 15 day vacation. Now, rested, Yes were ready to begin a brief stretch of shows at the famous Wembley Arena –formally known as the Empire Pool- in their home country of Great Britain before returning again to America. As a 12,000 seat venue Wembley Arena required a bit of modification to accommodate the Yes show because the Tormato Tour was presenting Yes with a Theatre-In-The-Round circular stage. Six shows were performed over a five night period and this recording presents the performance from the third evening.
Despite the changing attitudes and preferences within the music industry of the time, Yes were still considered the masters. The 1978 Melody Maker Poll gave top male vocalist honors to Jon Anderson. Steve Howe was voted top guitarist and Rick Wakeman was considered the top keyboardist. Chris Squire was also named top bassist. At the time of the Wembley gigs the band members knew of these award selections and looked forward to the awards ceremony which was to occur in less than 2 weeks time –on November 8th. You would think that Yes were on top of the world.
And yet, 1978 was an unsettling time for the band.  They knew of the Punk rock movement and understood that it could influence the popularity of progressive rock which had commanded so much attention throughout the 1970’s. The decision had already been made with the last album cover to give a new look to the band and use Hypgnosis artists rather than Roger Dean. The Tormato album continued with that idea over the objections of Steve Howe. Originally, Tormato was to be called Tor. The Yes-Tor album cover was to be a picture of the band in front of a famous rock in Devon, England
called the Yestor. Instead, the band had their picture taken in a park near the recording studio, nowhere near Devon. To add to the deception, Chris Squire forgot his black leather jacket and had to wear one with someone else’s name on it. This was eventually fixed in post-processing but was not a good omen for the album or the band.
Indeed, during 1978, Yes were also having internal problems of their own. Though the credits on Tormato tell a different story, Rick Wakeman insists that he wrote much of the material on the album, “…I wrote four of the nine tracks; mostly with Jon. But there were some publishing disagreements and a few problems. Never believe credits on any album. They’re all political.” And according to Chris Squire, the competition within the band extended to
the music as well, “…It just seems to me like both Rich and Steve on that particular album were seeing which one could play more notes than the other one. That’s kind of how the guitar and keyboard parts were constructed on most songs, it seems…” Sadly, these disagreements would eventually lead to the break-up of the band in 1980. During an interview in 1984, Jon Anderson was asked about the cause of the break-up. He said, “We just had too many Chiefs and not enough Indians.”
But Yes still had a loyal fan-base, eager to see them perform material from the new album. A matinee show on the final day at Wembley was even added to the schedule to accommodate the demand. The show opens with the familiar ‘Siberian Khatru’ and ‘Heart of the Sunrise’. Both songs were played with power and emotion demonstrating the cohesiveness that Yes had achieved after so many years of playing together. Jon welcomes the crowd with a simple, “Welcome to Wembley”, as if to say: here we are again, ready to bring you the intricacies of Yes music that you have come to expect from us…on with the performance… The band then launches off into material from the new album. Both ‘Future Times/Rejoice’ and ‘Circus of Heaven’ are received well and help to change the mood after the frantic pace of the older songs. The big Medley follows and presents segments of many of the classic Yes moments from previous years. The highlights of the second half of the show are ‘Awaken’ and ‘On The Silent Wings of Freedom’. Both songs demonstrate that Yes can move beyond their old classics of ‘Close to the Edge’ and ‘Ritual’ and produce long, moving pieces that will become standards for the setlist in years to come.
The 1978 tour was so successful that it was extended into the next year, despite the absence of a new album to promote. Shows were booked and fans flocked to see Yes in their prime. What a disappointment when the split occurred at the end of that year. Still, Yes continued on into the 1980’s, 90’s and the twenty-first century eventually re-forming this line-up so future generations could hear songs created in 1978, a time when Yes were at the
top of their game….. 

Notes from the Re-Master 

The master recording for this event had recently become available and was the starting point for this remaster project. The most obvious problems with the recording were the flat dynamics and the speed error. Once the speed was corrected the tape and audience noise was attenuated using multiple techniques. Tonality adjustment was needed to compensate for the venue as much as possible and then the dynamics were enhanced to restore some natural variability to the sound. A ring was found during difference parts of the show and was notched. Re-tracking was used to separate
each segment of the Big Medley. Overall, a nice result.

comments:
The final stop of the U.S. Tormato tour was highlighted in this broadcast with some songs rarely if ever heard in other Yes tours, particularly don't kill the whale, circus of heaven, and on the silent wings of freedom (I'm counting the 79 tour as basically 78 part two tour, since there was no new Yes album that year.). This is a nice clean recording from my FM master reel. I thought it would already be in the giant dime archive but I only saw an audience recording of this show (supposedly a D-5 source- did they even have D-5's in 1978?). if you haven't heard the FM version you should, so here it is. I checked to see if this version of "don't kill the whale" is officially released, knowing that there is a live version of it, and they didn't play that song very often. the Yes discography lists the version in Yesshows as Empire Pool Wembley 10/28/78, about a week before this version. that was the only version I saw
available of that song. Roundabout was released on "classic yes" from that same 10/28/78 show, and all good people from Oakland, Ca. I did not see any portion of this show listed as being officially available. this show may have been seeded from a pre-FM source a few years ago but this version has not, and it sounds pretty nice. this tape was not played more than a couple of times. This show was broadcasted at least a couple of times in the late 70's, maybe again later. this comes from a 70's broadcast.
Do not sell this recording. Trade freely and losslessly.

Heres something i think you will like. Its the Rick Wakeman solo from the legendary Wembley 1978 FM broadcast that is missing from just about every version of this show out there. I randomly found this online about 6 years ago. The sound quality is excellent, although its a very low-rate (80kbps) mp3. From what i remember, this was posted somewhere in the comments section of a blogspot that once posted this Wembley show because so many people complained that the show posted was incomplete. And then a random person uploaded this from their personal tape of the original FM broadcast in a comment on the post. Too bad this person didnt post the whole show. Maybe he had the missing 'Future Times/Rejoice'...who knows...Enjoy!!

Some tracks performed by Yes at Wembley were omitted by the BBC to shorten the program to two hours. But this is the best recording of the concert that I've ever heard, and the remaster makes it better still.

This is real JON ANDERSON YES. Accept no substitutes.

** Low-circulation recording **

FIRST SHOW OF THE 1979 TOUR

Lineage: first-gen or master tape -> CD audio -> EAC -> FLAC

This recording has not been altered or remastered. It is a straight rip from the CD's provided by Alec B. and Paulie. Sounds good overall.

The band sounds a little rusty, like they didn't rehearse much between the last show of the 1978 tour and the first show of 1979. And there are some mix problems, like synths and guitars that aren't amplified. Just makes it more interesting, as it's not one of Yes's typically perfect shows.

Forgotten Yesterdays shows "Tour Song" in the set, between "Awaken" and "All Good People." It's not on this recording and I suspect Yes didn't play it on this occasion. After all, what rhymes with "Kalamazoo?"

Enjoy!

Strong, powerful performance:
Yes at Wings 4/9, 1979 Wings Stadium, Kalamazoo, Michigan
by Janine L. Gould, arts editor, Western Herald
(reprinted with permission of the author)
Kicking off their 1979 U.S. tour Monday night, Yes brought a simplified but impressive show to Wings Stadium. A revolving stage with lighting and sound systems suspended above it provided a good setting for the band's musical excursions.

Yes has long been rejected by rock press elitist publications like Rolling Stone for their progressive and sometimes mystical approach to music. It seems as though Yes has been slagged because their roots lie in the areas of folk, pop and classical music instead of blues and R & B. What it boils down to is that Yes music is ahead of its time. But there were enough fans at Monday night's concert to prove that their music wasn't so far ahead of itself as to be unlistenable.

Last year Yes celebrated their tenth anniversary as a band, which says a lot for their musical vitality and growth as well as their popularity.There has long been a legion of very vocal but unrecognized (by the press) Yes fans, enough to give the band seven gold albums (every release from The Yes Album to Going for the One). The show at Wings was a continuation of Yes's devotion to the importance of live performance, and for the opening date of a tour, they came off looking healthy and happy to be on the road again.

Yes opened with "Siberian Khatru," a tried-and-true number that got off to a somewhat slow start. There were some balance problems in the vocals and guitar which were corrected during the course of the song. Drummer Alan White picked up the pace towards the end, giving impetus to Steve Howe's extended guitar solo. It seemed as though Yes wasn't too sure about this song as an opener, although they've opened with it in previous performances. Chalk it up to pre-concert jitters and first-gig-of-the-tour hesitation.

The majority of the material came from Yes's latest LP, Tormato ("Future Times/Rejoice," "Circus of Heaven," "Don't Kill the Whale," "Madrigal," "On the Silent Wings of Freedom") with selections from The Yes Album ("Perpetual Change," "Clap," "Starship Trooper," "I've Seen All Good People") and Fragile ("Heart of the Sunrise," "Long Distance Runaround," "The Fish," "Roundabout") making up the foundation. Yes also went back to their second album for "Time and a Word" and incorporated the final segment of "Gates of Delirium" ["Soon"] into "Perpetual Change."

The material from Tormato didn't seem comfortable to the band in a live context. These songs had a confining feeling, as if their newness hadn't yet been fully tested in live performance. The difference between these songs and older tunes like "Starship Trooper" and "Perpetual Change" lies in their structure. Yes's music became much more compact on Tormato, and this may have created an obstacle in live interpretations. The older songs were much looser, and allowed the band to explore new areas within the songs' original construction.

The highlight of the concert was "Awaken" (from Going for the One). Anderson's voice had been hoarse a few songs earlier, but Rick Wakeman's solo gave him a chance to revitalize his vocal cords before embarking upon "Awaken." Anderson's tambourine/maraca instrument, combined with his sidestepping circles around his mike in countermovement to the stage's motion, gave him the look of a tribal chanter invoking a deity.

"Awaken" in a live context has an overwhelming power which overshadows the Going for the One version. The keyboard passages weren't as lush as the original, but then Wakeman doesn't have four hands -- although at times it wasn't certain that he *didn't* have more than two hands.

"On the Silent Wings of Freedom" ran a close second to "Awaken" in terms of energy and impressiveness. Already a powerful song on Tormato, Yes's performance of it became supercharged. After almost two hours of continual *oomph*, it didn't seem possible for Yes to crank the energy up any higher, but they did it. Bassist Chris Squire seems to be the central powerhouse, using his dynamic bass lines to urge White on to new rhythmic heights.

"Your Move" gave the audience a chance to do a concerted clapalong, led by Squire and Wakeman. "All Good People" received a sort of blues treatment in White's accenting -- as for Squire, his patterns got even more intricate. Besides, Squire could barely sit still long enough to play a walking bass line: his hands are too well-trained to those convoluted yet funky constructions which have often been imitated by other bassists.

The absence of props on this tour marks a change to a more basic presentation for Yes. In the past they have utilized highly stylized stage constructions, usually patterned after Roger Dean's cover art. The set-up of the stage this time around centered attention on the stage, which revolved throughout each song (except for "Clap").

Yes retired to their dressing rooms after two hours amidst a thunderous standing ovation, and I *mean* thunderous -- the applause and cheering reached a painfully high point as the band left the stage. The crowd kept up that level of sound, and made even more noise when the band returned.

The audience was up and dancing when Yes kicked into their encore, "Roundabout." Wakeman again led the clapalong when he wasn't busy playing, and seemed to be quite happy to be with Yes again as a band member. Signals flew between White, Howe and Anderson to stretch the ending of the song: get loose and be crazy was the sign, and that's exactly what happened. Yes's first Top 40 single and their best-known song crashed to a close and brought the audience to its feet for another standing ovation.

Going through individual performances would be tedious. Suffice it to say that Yes sounded as professional and efficient as they ever have in concert, and that the solos were generally inventive and intriguing. Steve Howe still has his quirks, as Anderson once commented. But the ovation he received after "Clap" indicated that the crowd enjoyed those quirks. "I think Steve likes playing Kalamazoo more than any of us," Anderson added when the applause died down. Certainly, Kalamazoo will welcome Yes again.

Radio station master! (I think)

**Low-circulation recording**
** A TooleMan Remaster **

Lineage: radio station master reel (probably) -> audio CD's -> EAC -> TheTooleMan's tricks of the trade -> FLAC

Don't let the ragged beginning of this recording fool you. Although it is missing the first two songs of the concert, the quality improves dramatically after several minutes, and starting with the long medley it sounds really great.

This seems to be a professional recording, with open mics mounted on stands -- that's my best guess. Sounds like a lot of the monitor mix was picked up by the mics, as it was very heavy on the midrange frequencies. I took care of that in the master.

I wonder if this recording was made by the radio station that promoted the concert, WLRS. If so, maybe there's a better copy in their archives, or one that can be transferred more cleanly to the digital domain.

Enjoy!

The following paragraph, written by John Mock for Forgotten Yesterdays, explains the award ceremony track:

"Here's some trivia for you...the Tormato tour stop in Louisville on 4/13, 1979 was advertised as a 'big surprise' by the local heavyweight rock station, WLRS-102 FM as Yes was the 102nd concert promoted by WLRS... they attempted to get Pink Floyd as a surprise band to make a double bill....that fell through and their last stop they tried to pull out was free beer for the sold out Freedom Hall crowd, but the promoter would not go with that due to liability and under-age drinking concerns....so the 102nd concert for WLRS turned out to be anti-climactic, just a normal Yes show that was POWERFUL....I need another fix of On the Silent Wings Of Freedom!"

** Remastered and pitch-corrected by TheTooleMan, July 2011 **

The review by Bill Glahn, posted on Forgotten Yesterdays and copied below, tells you most of what you want to know about this recording, though he makes a few incorrect assertions. Here's the rest of the story:

The performance is as good as the sound quality, which makes for a real treat.

I discovered I have two versions of this recording, one of which has small cuts during the ambience and some lead-in notes between songs. I used the most complete version to create this edition. Bill Glahn may have been referring to the other version in some of his comments.

Contrary to the review, I never found a cut or edit in Starship Trooper, but there was a fade-out and fade-in which disguised a tape flip during "The Fish" in the long medley. I cross-faded the two parts on the beat so the music never stops. This is a big improvement.

The front cover album art looks more like YesShows than Relayer.

Prof. Goody and I were in agreement about the pitch correction factor required for disk one of the set, but disk two was not as fast as disk one. Goody later agreed with my assessment: 49 cents lower for disk one, and 36 cents lower for disk two.

You'll find the drums and bass pack a bit more wallop in this version, and there's a little more ambience, too.

You can't go wrong with this one.

Review posted on Forgotten Yesterdays:

YES "CIRCUS OF HEAVEN"
(Dynamite Studio DS94F059/60)

Some of our readers may recall a release from several years ago titled "Rehearsal Tales", a single CD containing a partial show from Quebec, April 18, 1979. Although the track listing had a couple of errors, the music contained on that disc represented the finest quality available of any yes concert on bootleg disc. In fact, it rivaled any official release in range, balance, and performance. The original release was very limited in numbers and it wasn't long before some of the bigger bootleg companies began making their own copies of this disc.

As the story goes, Yes was recording many of their 1979 shows on a mobile multi-track studio for release of an official live set to celebrate the groups ten year anniversary. The project was even announced to the press and then scrapped. Somehow (you know how these things happen!) a stereo mix-down from the quebec show found its way into the hands of a collector who unwittingly traded it to a bootlegger. Of course, as usually happens with bootlegs of outstanding quality, the bootlegger himself was bootlegged (at least 3 different times). All versions of this single disc were worth picking up, as little was lost in the transition from one CD to the next.

That is until now. Dynamite Studio, a Japanese outfit with reasonably good circulation in the US has finally released the complete show, making all the previously available single CD versions obsolete.

This double CD is nearly flawless! I say nearly because there is one minor edit towards the end of "Starship Trooper" which also appeared on the "Rehearsal Tales" disc. This distortion is said to be on the original master tape, and indeed it seems that is probably the case. The highs on this CD don't get any higher. The bottom end will rattle your walls, but, save for the mentioned segment, they will rattle your walls with perfect clarity. This set HAS to rate in the top 10 boots of all time. You can even hear the whale songs that Yes used between songs, for goodness sake. The audience is almost invisible in the mix. The ICE newsletter has occasionally coined the phrase "bootleg hall of fame" in their writings. If I had the opportunity to make my nominations for this mythical establishment, this would rank right up there with Led Zeppelin's "Jennings Farm Blues" and the Who's "From Lifehouse To Leeds" in importance. And it would take a back seat to no one in terms of sound quality.

"Relayer" artwork has been implemented on the front cover with a fabulous photo of the band and their stage set-up during a soundcheck on the back.

Holy Cow, I think we've got a winner!

MY FAQ: http://zombtracker.the-zomb.com/forums.php?action=viewtopic&topicid=1232

A killer Yes show, one of the better known boots from them, and right at the end of their big 70's run. Not too far away, like it or hate it, is the "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" years. For me, it wasn't as good as this.

All the hits and then some!

This needed the boost, so it got it. Fuller, wider, maximized.
For the Yes enthusiast, this one will be hard to beat.

Comments: This is one of my best sounding bootlegs. This is an
extremely clear, low gen radio broadcast (or possibly soundboard).
Some static was removed using Wavelab, and the bass was increased a
bit. This was distrubuted on Yesswap, as "Siberian Cat-tru" and there
is some very silly artwork.

LDB Special Series #191

Out of my 7,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I'd like to propose you. Most of these come from my cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won't be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my reward for all the work involved in this project.

DO NOT share this music on mp3, just convert it for your own use. Sharing mp3's is the right way to make me stop sharing music here.

This one was traded to me as soundboard and I see it is labelled as such in some websites. But in my view is 'just' an excellent audience source. Good show, Jon and the band were very inspired.
I was in Vancouver a few months ago and... what a great place to live!
Pretty standard setlist for the Tormato tour but played very well! This is vintage Yes from 30 years ago!

Notes: outstanding audience recording (especially considering that it's
from 30 years ago) from one of the last shows of the spring '79 tour.
Many (including myself, when I first heard it) mistake it for a sound-
board or FM recording. Nice stereo sound.

From a review of this show on 'Forgotten Yesterdays':
"I remember dragging my Led Zep fiend buddy to this show. He was a skeptic.
At the end of the show he turned to me and said it was better than that
Zep show in the Kingdome, which is legendary. I wallowed in smug pride for
my favourite band."

Judge for yourself.

In Colours Of Jade (Virtuoso 093/094)
Long Beach Arena, Long Beach, CA - May 26th, 1979

Disc 1 (67:25): Young Person’s Guide To The Orchestra, Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, Siberian Khatru, Heart Of The Sunrise, Future Times / Rejoice, Circus Of Heaven, Time And A Word / Long Distance Runaround / The Fish / Survival / Perpetual Change / Soon

Disc 2 (71:49): Clap, And You And I, Starship Trooper, Rick Wakeman solo, Awaken, Tour Song, I’ve Seen All Good People, Roundabout

Yes’ Ten True Summers tour was booked almost exclusively to record for a planned live album. Tormato had already been thoroughly promoted the previous year and only two songs remained in the set from their latest effort. (”Arriving U.F.O.” would appear in a few shows in the final week).

It began on the west coast in Fresno on May 24th. Following Fresno Yes played two nights in Long Beach, and In Colours Of Jade captures the second night utilizing an excellent audience recording. It’s very detailed and clear with nice definition in the individual instruments. The bass and lower frequencies nicely compliment the upper register. It’s loud without distorting the recording and creates a heavy atmosphere to the show. There is a cut eight seconds in to “I’ve Seen All Good People,” but otherwise it is complete.

Yes replaced the “Firebird Suite” introduction with two intros: an except from Benjamin Britten’s “Young Person’s Guide To The Orchestra” and a bit from the score to “Close Encounters Of The Third Kind” written by John Williams.

“Siberian Khatru” and “Heart Of The Sunrise” open the show, the same dark opening from the Yessongs triple live LP from six years before.

“Saturday night southern California” Jon Anderson says before they continue with a lively version of ”Future Times / Rejoice,” followed by a song “for the imagination,” “Circus Of Heaven.” The half hour long big medley is a conscious nod to their history, hitting upon all of the previous incarnations of the band including Relayer.

Anderson next introduces the “fast and furious fingers of Steve Howe.” Howe plays “Clap” with an interlude of “Surface Tension” from The Steve Howe Album which had just hit the record store shelves. Devastating versions of “And You And I” and “Starship Trooper” continue the show. The latter sounds curiously dated in this recording, sounding like an old relic resurrected for the night.

Rick Wakeman’s solo includes excerpts from The Six Wives Of Henry VIIIand ends with a rare quote from Gershwin’s “Rhapsody In Blue.” The ends with “Awaken,” the only song in the set from their preivous album Going For The One. Wakeman favors very deep, heavy tones on the keyboards lending a strange tone to the piece.

The encores begin with the “Tour Song” which has the same melody as other stops but with lyrics specific to partying in Long Beach on a Saturday night. “Roundabout” is introduced as “The Long Beach Boogie,” ending the evening.

Lighthouse have been releasing their Yes titles of late on CDR labels such as Amity. It’s surprising to see them release two Yes silvers at this time. Their choice of tapes is erratic. In Colours Of Jade is a very good release worth having while Master Degree, released at the same time, is not. Yes were a hot band several years ago and had many great silver pressed titles released, but those days are past.

###TheTooleMan Mix###

Thanks to "Lucifer Burns" for providing this wonderful recording. It's beyond
any standard Yes audience recording I've ever heard except for a few by Mike Millard...
which makes me wonder if he didn't record this gem. It was in his home territory, after
all.

Mix notes:

I did the following: repaired or spliced out several small gaps, balanced stereo
channels to provide an optimum sound field, repaired a previous attempt by someone else
to repair a gap in "Wurm;" mixed a tell-tale cut in "All Good People" to keeping the tempo of the song correct while filling the gap with audience noise to make the missing
lyric less jarring.

Audio watermark:
Because I've been ripped off many times in the past by so-called progressive rock
restoration groups, and because sales of my mixes have been reported in such far-flung and exotic locations as Atlanta and Japan, you will find an "audio watermark" in this recording.
This watermark will definitively identify this version of this recording as having been mixed by me. Others who want to use this mix will have to deal with it. They should, after all, go to the original tape and not use my work as the foundation for theirs. The watermark is designed to be difficult to remove. I feel this is a small price for downloaders to pay for two hours of total Yes music enjoyment. It only occurs once and then it's over.

My complaints department is staffed by Helen Wait. If you wish to complain about it, go to Helen Wait.

Peace be upon you,

TheTooleMan

**Low-circulation recording**

Lineage: master or first-generation tape (my best guess) -> audio CD -> EAC -> TheTooleMan -> FLAC

I discovered I had this recording in my archive after receiving several other 1979 recordings from Alec B. and Paulie. Turns out this one came to me years ago from Alec B. It's not a great tape, but I thought it should be shared for the sake of completeness.

The recording is marred by several drop-outs or partial erasures lasting less than one second each. While I couldn't do anything about these drop-outs, I did reduce the 60 Hz hum and normalized the audio level to a fairly standard setting.
The CD's I received are untracked copies of the sides of cassette tapes, so I tracked the songs as seen below. I also noted where a couple of tracks are missing from the tape.

Have fun!

Half-decent but rare recording stereo audience recording of Yes as they neared the end of their 1978-79 anniversary tour. Many stage announcements were cut, and one or two songs from the long medley were not captured during the original taping at the show.

My best guess at lineage: First-generation tape, engineered with crossfades, fade-outs, and volume adjustments during the dubbing process.

Minor level adjustments made by TheTooleMan, June 2011 to eliminate clipping. No other EQ or mastering techniques were applied.

Tracks are as they appeared on the CD's I received from PR.

Enjoy!

*** Madrigal probably does not belong in the set as I can find no other evidence in any other show of the '79 tour where it was played. My recommendation would be to leave that out if burning to CD. Its included here as it was on my CD copy that I got in a trade.

I originally got this show in a cassette trade years ago and Madrigal was not included, show ran fast, and had some bad spots here and there. Consequently, over time, I managed to get a CD copy from someone else which is what I've presented here. Much better than my tape, but doesn't match the other 2 widely circulated boots of this show, Chicago Of Heaven '79 (Cat Food 002) and Gates Of Heaven (Highland). I have, however, included the artwork for both of those in case anyone is interested.

Enjoy!

“Going Around”

Yes were in the midst of a grueling 60 show US tour. Tonight’s performance was the 43rd gig since the tour began in April and the 7th night in a row of scheduled work. Only the cancelled show in Kansas City 3 nights earlier –from an unstable roof- gave them a eprieve. But now they were in Chicago, a city they knew quite well. The band had played here 14 times before, if you include the performance the night before this one. The International Amphitheatre was also familiar to the band. They had played this venue 9 times before, with the last visit September 24th 1978. The setlist for tonight was quite similar to what was played during their last visit. For this evening, the guys would replace ‘Silent wings of Freedom’ and ‘Don’t Kill the Whale’ with ‘And You And I’ and a Tour song; the rest of the material would remain essentially the same.
This tour marked the 10th anniversary for the band. The tour book used at the time makes reference to this with words from Dan Hedges: “With their tenth anniversary behind them, Yes, as strong as ever, are embarking on this tour, the opening event of their second ecade.
Although the band is looking to the future with the same kind of energy that has always made Yes so existing, it seems not a bad time to recap some of the events of the last ten years. As an on-going idea, Yes have been around for ten years now, yet they've collectively got this strange disinterest in most things remotely concerning their past. Sure, they'll walk out on stage and blast through 'Roundabout', 'Starship Trooper', 'Siberian Khatru', and 'Close To The Edge'. That's music. They still love those as much as always, and they'll probably be playing some of them tonight. But when it comes down to things like times, dates, places, events, and slapping themselves on the back for past achievements, you'll more often than not get a mystified shrug with a "... but does it really matter?". Yes are totally aware that it's you - the people who buy their albums and come to see them - who are the main reason why Yes remain alive and well. Ten years on, they thank you for that.

DAN HEDGES

Notes from the Re-Master

Generally, this was a very good radio broadcast recording. Noise reduction was only used in a few selected regions. The left channel volume was about 20% below the right consistently
throughout the show. This was corrected. Crackle and pops were numerous and needed to be removed. Finally, a few tonality adjustments were made. All in all, a very good recording with strong music signal and great detail

This is a good story... CD2 is from my cassette , I was at this show. ( it was Alan Whites 30th birthday ) ironically, I noticed years ago the last portion of the show was missing from trade lists and ironically I happened to have it so I sent it to relayerman to work with it. ( I think it was him ) then he sent it back. so it made this show almost complete. but unfortunatelly my cassette 1 was stolen from me along with other cassettes from my car about 1980. I happened to have cassette 2 in my house. sadly And You and I and the first part of Starship Trooper were on cassette 1 and it sounded good also. Had I realized that these MSG shows would concidered some of Yes' best ever I would have kept that cassette in a safer place. anyways this is my rare contribution to the Yes boot world. Its just very weird someone had the first part of the show and I had the last...listening to it I can tell the first part was not my stolen cassette.

Lineage: unknown gear & tape -> mastering process of some sort -> first-generation tape? -> audio CD -> EAC -> TheTooleMan remaster (2011) -> FLAC

Anyone who can identify the taper of this show should let us know so we can give full credit for a good job.

This is a very good recording of a fine Saturday night performance. It's a nearly-complete show, the first of two Yes gave in New Haven in 1979. I think the finale of Steve Howe's solo set is missing and was patched with applause where it ends prematurely, and there's a cut in "And You And I" that I've mixed to make it a bit less jarring.

The recording sounds great after some careful TooleMan tweaking. There were a few cuts in applause and some fades applied by a previous basement engineer. I cleaned those up, adjusted the track boundaries, balanced the levels of the left and right channels, and equalized the whole shootin' match. No noise reduction was used; there's a slight high-frequency hiss throughout the tape.

Jon seems to think he is in Hartford at first, but gets it straight pretty fast. And an explosive sound gets a big reaction just before Jon sings the opening lines of "Heart of the Sunrise."

Thanks again to Alec B. and Paulie for another great, rare recording.

comments:
this is a complete recording of 1979 Yes show in Springfield. It's not real close up, not too far back, somewhere in between. not alot of crowd noise, a few sections were monoized because of
one channel having brief static noises. I got the worst of it out, there may be a few short sections left with barely noticable 1 channel static but nothing prominent remains of that.
this is now a good B quality recording with no annoying flaws/bumps or loud crowd noise. It's not a "great" performance, pretty standard 79 yes show but a good one. there are a few options for a disc break if preferred but this is the best one if using 74 or 80 minute discs.

Do not sell this recording.

Endless, endless thanks to the Taper – this nearly if not completely miraculous AR wouldn’t exist for us to enjoy without his bravery and expertise, then and now.

When the cheaper speakers begin to fart, remember - it's a true audience sound capture :]

REMASTER SUMMARY:

Pitch/Tempo naturalization and EQ work to reveal - not mix - existing detail in CEP 2.0 and Izotope Ozone. No noise reduction attempted. Extensive detail below can be read or skipped as preferred, but I will have no mercy on any complainers who have not read it [I will know] ;}

STRENGTHS [please also see "weaknesses" further down]:

Performance -

Yes in 1979 speaks for itself, here and in any other recording from the tour whatever its SQ. The excitement of a brand new album - never quite the same after TORMATO - had passed with 1978 but as Yes themselves have said the opportunity to focus on new arrangements and interpretations of seasoned works was exciting enough and it shows here.

GOING FOR THE ONE and its tour were a bit like CLOSE TO THE EDGE in being a daunting monument to follow up, but Yes pulled off another brilliant remake with their approach to the TORMATO tour if not the album itself, and managed to develop it nicely for 1979's second tour installment. If anything it was an opportunity to simply play, without the pressure of getting this or that performance of a brand new album sounding just a tad better than the night before. Slightly different approaches to everything anyhow, especially the "Big Medley", worked well enough to make them sound almost new again. Probably more than anything else what Yes had in common with straight jazz acts. "Arriving UFO" was a special treat, played rarely if at all during 1978.

Source and Mastering Effort –

As most will know right off, very different remaster of this same recording has been in wide circulation for some time. Both come from the exact same source - the same professional transfer of the original master tapes. Respective goals and results however differ enormously. The source is a top shelf 1970s AR unlike any other both for unbelievable sound capture and for almost insurmountable remastering challenges presented by Yes concert sound so powerful and detailed it overwhelmed even the best contemporary recording equipment at times.

For B79 two primary areas of focus were front and center - 1] The very same brilliant natural detail in the original master recognized by all going in, yet like most from before 1990 or so in need of liberation from analog tape 'encrustations'. 2] Pitch and tempo, which in the original tapes are way, way off due to the common practice of so-setting high end decks at the time theoretically for a better sound capture. Based on my experience with such tapes I’d call the theory highly viable, but would be ashamed to death if I ever left out the needed post-capture correction. Pitch-tempo has been addressed carefully and now matches period studio recordings as well as other original AR masters without similar needs.

Many audience recordings are remastered to sound as much like industry ‘live’ releases as possible. That’s fine and a value I share when limited to clarity of detail, but in an AR detail comprises much more than just instruments and vocals. Audience sound, p.a. system output nuances and venue ambience among many other things are paramount and should be conserved as carefully as performance sound unless something enjoys artificially high volume in the recording, as in an obnoxious, constant yeller right next to mikes. While audience volume in B79’s source is prominent, it suffers no such imbalance constant or otherwise, is accurate, proportionate and part of the event’s reality. Taper's section is relatively quiet, and in any case if we hate audience noise so much in an AR we should stick to sbds or heavily mixed industry releases. Therefore I both left it intact and revealed it, along with Yessound. No spot mixing to suppress audience sound was either needed or attempted, and would have resulted in terrible artificial effects transitions throughout the recording anyhow. Band and crowd detail alike are now MUCH more visible. Not to mention much closer to and in some areas beyond that of its 'sister' recording "B78" [Yes, Boston, 30 August 1978].

Both B78 and B79 were unique achievements in audience taping, having detail across the spectrum rivaling many of the best from 1990 and beyond. Even in their case it was largely hidden under many layers of tape noise and related issues. Both required many months of experimental EQ work and testing of results by multiple listeners in a wide variety of playback systems to get their existing detail as fully revealed as it could be without rendering analog noise or distortion intolerable. While B79 oddly does not have quite the degree of high frequency richness and warmth B78 offers it does come within a hair of it, and more importantly enjoys richer midrange presence as well as noticeably lower hiss volume. So rich are B79's mids that together with its excellent enough highs they led more than one 'beta' listener to initially accuse me of trying to pass a sbd off as an AR ;}

What you have here is the original capture, unaltered except for EQ work to reveal as much of what the original audience really heard as the recording possibly can. It may even come as a serious shock to many. The entire dynamic range now comes through vastly better than I had hoped it ever would even from such an exceptional source [and because of some problems in it described below]. High frequencies, while still not quite as smooth as B78's, are actually more detailed in some ways. Mids, which had been overwhelming and harsh in raw master and worse in remaster sequences prior to this one, are now as warm as B78's not to mention more 'present'. Lows from kick drum to the entire range of bass guitar frequencies can be both felt and heard in all their complexity, much as the audience experienced them. The listener is cautioned to start with relatively flat tuner/amp settings - the proper AR goal of signal and signal detail as close as possible to the real thing has been achieved and cheaper speakers in particular can be vulnerable.

WEAKNESSES:

Performance -

Not my absolute favorite of the tour, but up there. I thought Yes' Madison Square Garden [NYC] performance just a night or two earlier was more vital, especially Starship Trooper and Awaken, but it didn't include "Arriving UFO" and my old 1st generation tape of it has been played at least 100 times too many for a Dime-worthy remaster to be possible. That's made even sadder by its source having also been a Nak 550 original, almost certainly rivaling this one for brilliant SQ and for all I know lost completely to three decades of entropy. If anyone who likes what they hear in B79 ever turns up the original master of "MSG79" please get in touch!

The Yes PA mix was also better at times in New York - in this one certain of Wakeman's keyboard channels especially are much lower, most noticeably at different points in "Big Medley" ["Perpetual Change"] and "Awaken". Most of the time though keyboards in B79 come through more clearly than in B78 and but for tape distortion could easily be called studio or sbd quality.

Source and overall sound -

Tape noise. It could be a lot worse and actually isn’t as bad as some of what ended up in the officially released THE WORD IS LIVE, but it's noticeable. We are dealing with a 1970s analog AR albeit an excellent one, not a high end DAT from the 1990s or 2000s. The recording and remaster are also so detailed they reveal Yes sound system noise almost never detectable otherwise and frequently confused with tape noise when it is. Concert sound system output flaws are most noticeable during the Howe and Wakeman solos [see taper’s notes below], and during “Gates”’ transition into its “Soon” movement. Tape age and/or wear seem likely factors as well, and this master is reported to have been played more frequently than B78 over the years before quality digital transfer became possible. It probably contributes to both noise and other shortcomings, including some high hat and other metal percussion sounding a bit 'warbled' or 'swirly' throughout [just possibly also a property of sound system output, examined in more detail further below].

Not long into this project I had taken to calling it, jokingly, "Bull Rodeo '79". Anyone familiar with North American bull riding events should quickly understand why. Quite often the very best analog AR sound captures are the most difficult to remaster if goal and approach are getting their natural spectral detail as completely visible as possible without rendering inevitable analog noise or distortion too aggravating. B79 underwent nearly a hundred experimental remaster sequences before the current one was settled on, each suggestive of a bull ridden slightly longer than the one before it, before the rider finally thrown and bull had to be shot [files deleted]. Each one at least did achieve enough for the next one to be built upon. This all resulted largely from midrange so strong in the Yes sound mix it generated several categories of distortion effecting the entire spectrum, especially the high frequencies - not a problem at all in B78 despite its higher tape noise level. Every time detail began to sound like something approaching what the audience heard, high frequencies in particular would become 'dirty' sounding, with a sort of 'ringy', 'ghost' image in the lower parts of certain extreme highs like metal percussion. Sibilant distortion was also bad during many full band at full throttle moments, effecting both vocals ["S"s] and high frequency instruments. All of these are properties of the original analog capture and can be heard in it, but naturally came right out front along with desired detail. The challenge was finding the right EQ sequence for getting that joyous signal detail revealed while keeping the different distortion types at tolerable levels. Between at last achieving the right balance and some limited post-EQ compression, what you have here is the final, most successful effort.

Some of this distortion can still be heard, especially the sibilance, but after many a 'dead bull' it's at last no worse than in the master source while signal detail vastly better than anything heard before. The previously circulated effort may remain preferable to some listeners, and while I would never begrudge anyone preferring lower noise/distortion levels to better spectral detail the pitch/tempo correction alone helped make possible getting more signal spectrum revealed without aggravating the distortion problems as much.

As always, digital noise reduction technology - from dehissing to sibilant reduction - remains so primitive and counterproductive I refuse to use it unless it's absolutely unavoidable [as in the case of "B76"]. It was not used here, except for some anti-hum/rumble measures in very quiet sections like Steve's solo and parts of "Awaken" - which attack signal too but had to be done. All undesirable noise remains to some degree, but again intact, fully revealed signal was the goal and it couldn't have been achieved without putting up with a higher noise/distortion level. Undesirables remain most noticeable in Steve Howe’s solo – Yes’ engineer really had that acoustic guitar jacked up [see also taper’s notes below] - "Future Times", "Circus of Heaven", "Starship Trooper", "Awaken" and "Roundabout". In them things get rather fuzzy sounding at times, but they still offer far greater detail than EVER before. A scattering of sibilant distortion will still be noticeable throughout, including segments where other distortion problems are least annoying or altogether absent. In consolation I can offer all are 100% better than they had been at several points, and again no worse now than in the raw master. Most importantly, detail even I didn’t think existed is fully revealed.

Other source weaknesses include a number of widely scattered of mechanics-generated dropouts, usually microphone cables being jerked around. In one such case the taper and his entourage were desperately trying to get valuable equipment out of harm's way as a drunk was staggering toward it just before "Arriving UFO". The day was saved and the moment is preserved here as a part of the overall event history, not to mention in such crisp detail it almost puts us right there in its midst. Part of what makes an AR an AR. Time constraints and my rather purist nature with ARs dictated my leaving them alone. Most occur only during audience noise anyhow.

Last off, beginning about the point of "All Good People" a very strange property of the master recording becomes evident - at best poorly described as a "rushing", "watery" sound most obvious in heavy crash cymbals. It resembles some deliberate effects used in psychedelic recordings from the 1960s and beyond, but here intended by no one, except just maybe Yes' own soundman. A bit of it can be heard in the official LIVE IN PHILADELPHIA video release - also and interestingly during "All Good People". I've also detected it in the opening bars of "Yours is No Disgrace" from YESSONGS, itself at least in part quite likely an 'official AR'. It's most weirdly common in ARs from the 1977 GFTO tour [99% of them including the best ones]. Causation hypotheses range from venue air movement to contemporary cassette technology, but I most strongly suspect phase shifters in the Yes PA system output. No digital or analog remastering protocol or device will remove it, and it could also be a factor in the ‘swirly’ property effecting metal percussion throughout the entire recording as mentioned above.

With caveats in mind, enjoy! Please share freely but never sell and please keep lossless. Happy time travels!

NOTES FROM THE TAPER:

The 360-degree sound system suspended over the rotating stage used in 78, 79, and
80 was a marvel. It sounded so good that one would have had to work hard to get
a bad recording. It gave everyone in the entire building a great listening experience
and a great view of the entire band. If only it were still in use.

The 360-degree stage did pose one unique problem: how to aim the mikes to get good
stereo separation while staying on-axis with the sound sources. What you hear was
my best guess at the time.

I should also mention that there were problems with the sound system at one point.
There were technicians all over the stage during Jon's acoustic "Leaves
of Green" and (I think) Clap.

Hopefully Lestat will agree to remaster my recording from 1980. He's not into
the Drama album but I think he will come to recognize that the performance had some
great moments. Being early in the tour, Trevor's voice was still in good shape.
If you would like to hear that show, post a comment and let us know. –Barry

[Lestat replies – I’ll GLADLY do the DRAMA show, and am looking forward to working on it! If B79 is any indication it’ll be something to behold.]

FROM AN INDEPENDENT TEST LISTENER, WRITER AND MUSICIAN:

B79 "Arriving UFO"

When Yes played the Boston Garden in 1979, ten true summers had come and gone, then slid uneasily into an eleventh. Where the Big Medley seemed a nice way to include past favorites on the band's ten-year anniversary, in 1979 it hinted that the well was running dry. And, in some ways, it was; fans who had attended the 1978 shows may have had future times on their minds, and not just during that song.

But the music itself gives no hint of the turmoils backstage: the sound is great, the band plays well, and the songs are smashing. With the return of "Starship Trooper" and addition of "Leaves of Green", it even sounds as if things were getting better. Listen to the Big Medley here, and see if you can keep the volume level down for long: Chris Squire feeding his "Fish" solos to the audience as if by hand; "Perpetual Change" exploding with the same incredible energy that made it impossible to omit from YESSONGS. The revival of "Time and a Word" was subsequently included on YESSHOWS, but without the power of hearing it punch into "Long Distance Runaround". By the time "Soon" draws the medley to a close, it's clear that a year on the road had honed these songs into rapier vehicles, with the band slicing them up every show to the fans' delight.

Still, there was a reason the band hadn't put together a new album, and not for lack of ideas: almost everyone put out side projects in 1979. Things would finally come to a head by the end of the year, with the Paris sessions proving that at least they tried. Meanwhile, they had crossed the continent doing shows like this, and it is no wonder that a solo Jon soon found that he missed the band. In 1980, Boston would witness a very different Yes, and the longing would begin for a return to shows like these.

Fortunately for us, the intrepid taper who recorded the 1978 show came to this one as well, with fine results: a rich sound and a full spectrum. An earlier version of this was previously released into trading circles, but this version is undeniably, vastly clearer: all instruments can be made out, and the overall sound is much sharper. It's as if the listener was moved from a pretty good seat behind the soundboard to the perfect center just in front..

So join us, the taper, editors, artists, and remaster beta testers of BOSTON 1979, in celebrating this great concert from the last year of the classic Yes era -- thanks to this great sound capture, and an excellent recovery, we can hear it just as if it were happening live before our ears, for the first time, at this very moment. Which is only appropriate since, in some cosmic vibratory manner, it is indeed still happening -- echoed in the very molecules and energies of our beings. Surely Jon would agree :-)

Boston Invaders 
For nearly 70 years, the Boston Garden was one of the legendary arenas in American history. It was the home of the Boston Bruins and Celtics. All of
music's greatest stars played there. Families went to watch the three-ring circus, ice shows, the rodeo, and the Harlem Globetrotters. Speeches were given
there by some of the greatest politicians of all-time, including Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and John F. Kennedy. Sadly, in 1995 the old Garden
closed its doors to the public for good and the new Fleet Center ushered in a new era for sports and entertainment in New England.
This Yes show was performed at the grand old Boston Garden at a time when it was still an icon of the city of Boston. As recalled by one Yes fan
that was there….”As a venue for rock concerts, the old Boston Garden was genuinely horrible. Of all the concerts I went to there, only two bands, Pink
Floyd and Yes, had sound systems good enough to overcome the booming upper-bass reverberation that plagues almost every performance. Pink Floyd
used extra speakers in the back of the hall to create a 360-degree soundstage. Yes had a rotating stage in the center of the floor under an amazing
360-degree sound system. For Yes, everyone in the entire building had a good seat, even the people farthest from the stage. Of the three years that Yes
used the round stage (1978-1980), the 1979 show sounded the best to me, but that may have been more a matter of having a perfect seat for that show
than anything else. I've lost my ticket stub but I'm pretty sure I was in the 10th row on the floor.”
The set list for the 1979 Summer American tour was different from the earlier TORMATO tours. This Boston show was only the second time that Yes
played Arriving UFO and Leaves of Green, each of which were played only ten times during the whole tour. The remainder of the set consisted of a mixture
of songs from TORMATO, their most recent album, and older material.
This was their 93rd show of the TORMATO tour with only 9 more shows to go. At the time, no one in the audience likely suspected that this would be
the last tour for this Yes line-up for over a decade. After the tour, the band members met in Paris to start rehearsals for a new album, but things didn’t
quite work out the way they had planned. Rick Wakeman describes the situation this way,
 “It all worked very well up until about 1979. That’s when it really started falling apart. The problems were both internal and musical. Jon and I had
formed a partnership of playing and writing and a way of working. We just felt we weren’t getting any input at all from any other areas. Everything
became a struggle. We ended up recording an album which we never finished, and what happened was we got halfway through…and it was like Jon
and I met one day in Paris in a little cafe and just said, ‘we’ve both had enough’. I mean the band’s just run out of…we were digging into the gold
mine that just had a few nuggets left”. (1981). Just as the Fleet Center replaced the Boston Garden and ushered in a new era for New England, the loss of
Anderson and Wakeman ushered in a new creative period in the life of Yes. But before this split, not long after the end of the 1979 tour, Yes were the
masters of their craft and thrilled audiences at every turn. So, with this Boston show we bring you, in our opinion, one of the very best Yes performances
from the year 1979.
 Notes from the Re-Master 
This is an outstanding recording. It comes as a master tape source from the guy who recorded it. He informs us that he used a Nakamichi 550
recorder with Nakamichi CM-100/CP-1 microphones at the time. The show has wonderful quality with harmonics visible in the frequency spectrum up to
18,000Hz. This level of quality is very rare for audience recordings made before 1980, but here it is!
The show had a bit too much sub-bass so the frequencies in the range needed adjusting. Clipping also occurred so clip restore algorithms were
used. In general, the sound board manager did a good job that night but occasionally a solo would start with volume that was too high or too low and
needed adjustment. There were a number of yells, whistles and clicks that were found and reduced as much as possible. On rare occasion a single or
dual channel dropout was found and needed repair. Most were dealt with successfully and are not noticeable. The tape flips were successfully navigated
with pasted patches. Fortunately, since tape flips occurred during applause, no other source was needed to produce the complete show. A gentle hiss
reduction also made quiet sections more pleasing but a rolling hiss at one point required more specific attention. Tonality was adjusted in a few spots to
eliminate excesses but detail was enhanced throughout. Finally, after detailed analysis of segmental run-times, a speed correction was applied to create
the finished product. We at PRRP have more shows from this taper so stay tuned because they are going to be great!!

**Low-circulation recording**

Lineage: master or first-gen tapes (my best guess) -> audio CD -> EAC -> TheTooleMan (remaster) -> FLAC

The tape starts out a bit rough but gets better. Something happened during "Siberian Khatru" that caused only the first four minutes of the song to be recorded. Sound quality improves with "Heart of the Sunrise," but a bigger improvement comes with the second half of "And You And I," where (I suspect) a better tape was inserted into the recording deck.

Sound quality in this remaster is improved over the raw recording. Completists and other Yes-fiends will find the tape enjoyable. Jon mentions Ed Sciaky in his remarks before "And You And I," which had been dropped from most sets at this late date in the tour, and the band seems excited and happy to be in Philly throughout the show.

Thanks again to Alec B. and Paulie for the source recording.

I pulled this out from a CD trade a few years back due to a request I had to seed this. I probably would never have seeded this one as its not all that good a recording. Its very noisy and sounds somewhat distant (check samples). Believe it or not I did tweak it some to make it a tad better. Its not a complete show, but apparently this one has not been circulated that much. The version I got sounds multi-generational.

“Red Stick” - TheTooleMan’s 30th Anniversary Edition

Lineage: audience tape -> audio cd -> EAC -> Sound Forge/Vegas -> FLAC

A great concert from the last few days of the 10th anniversary “In The Round” tour. (As
Jon comments before the long medley, the band had been together 11 years by the time of
this show.)

And this is one of the best audience recordings of this tour! Highs are crisp and clear, the
bass forceful. There are a few spots of distortion – it was a loud concert - but fortunately
for us they don’t last long and aren’t too bad.

I remastered and circulated this recording in 2002 with the title “Red Stick.” This is a
new remaster, done from scratch in June 2009. I went back to the original audio CD’s
rather than building on the work I’d done in the past. Changes and improvements to the
original CD’s include pitch correction, fixing abrupt volume changes, EQ, and editing to
fill a small piece of “All Good People” and a few other miscellaneous shortcomings.

When I attended this show, little did I know that I would not see the “classic” Yes line-up
again for 23 years.

Enjoy it like it’s 1979.

**Low-Circulation Recording**
** TheTooleMan Remaster **

Best guess at lineage: first generation -> audio CD -> EAC -> TheTooleMan (pitch and levels) -> FLAC

Overall audio isn't too bad. It's your typical built-in mic cassette deck recording of 1979.

The recording ran too fast and was way off-pitch by one semitone. Pitch has been corrected here. The songs have been re-tracked to conform with the usual 1979 show tracking. Volume levels have been normalized.

Sounds like someone sits in on keyboards for Roundabout, but I can't make out the name.
