comments:
this is really great stuff for several reasons. I've been looking for any live yes with songs from before their 1st big commercial success, "the Yes Album", and most of what I've heard from that era of Yes sounds as pathetic for sound as it is good sounding music, other than the BBC sessions official double CD set (which is essential). not this one.
Yes played the Beat Club in Bremen, Germany on Jan. 28th, so the Koln one could be from the 26th or 27th of January, since they were in Copenhagen, Denmark on the 25th. they were also in Berlin, Germany on March 27th and 28th, and in Stuttgart on April 16, back in Berlin on June 5th, (apparently they liked Germany alot in 1971) so this could be a few days before one of those, but not likely since I recieved it as "Jan. 1971". No 71 Koln (or Cologne) concert was listed in the etree guide when this was posted, suprising since most of their early gigs were listed. this is some of the very earliest live Bill Bruford I've ever heard (with anyone), and already he sounds like a hall of fame drummer. if it's Bill Bruford (and this is) of course it's gonna sound really good. no matter who else is in there. that's a fact of life.
I made sure that track 3 doesn't go into something else since it's quite a long version for "everydays", but it is just a very nice extended version of it. the performances in both these short shows are very enjoyable. I don't know if either one is complete, only that I've yet to hear a yes show with pre-yes album songs that is of more typical length of 71 or 72 yes shows.
I think the last 5 tracks are before Howe joined, and definitely before Rick Wakeman joined Yes, since it is almost all music featuring the original yes lineup, way before the lawyers tour, or the big generator or the 9012 live tour or any of that. any live yes featuring music from the 1st 2 yes releases, "yes" and "time and a word" gets my most immediate attention.
as the setlist indicates here, only one of these 8 tracks (all good people, from yes album) is not originally heard (in studio form, of course) on one of those 1st 2 records. the sound quality is as good as anything I've heard from this era in an audience recording. these tapers get an A for their efforts here, really good sound for auds from January 1971. Almost too good to believe they are auds until the applause between songs, but even that is not very loud. I reduced a few loud claps to make it sound even better, and spliced a few abruptly cut ends.
the taper(s) stopped between a few of the songs, but most are complete, a couple may be missing the 1st note or two.

Cracks Appeared In The Air is one of the many Highland releases from The Yes Albumphase of Yes’ career and there are several misconceptions surrounding this tape. It is listed on the cover as the March 27th, 1971 show at the Deutschlandhalle Art Festival in Berlin. Some have argued that the bonus tracks on Down At The Edge (Highland HL110/11#Y20), listed as being from April 16th in Stuttgart, are really this tape. That is not true; the April 16th Böblingen fragment is used instead. Others have claimed this is a mixture of the Böblingen and June 5th Berlin tape.

All of the speculation and confusion is not true. The tape that Highland claim to use is the one they actually use and this release, advertised as the March 27th, 1971 Berlin show, is really the March 27th, 1971 Berlin show.

It is another very good tape from this era, one of the few that survived in reasonable quality. It begins distorted but clears up during the show and turns out to be very enjoyable. Unfortunately it cuts out after ”Perpetual Change” eliminating the final two songs of the set, “Everydays” and “America.” At 2:13 in “Perpetual Change” the taper stops the tape to check how much he has left and that slow down and pause remain on the tape. It lasts about two seconds and doesn’t detract from the enjoyment of the show, but it is there.

This show appears during a month of heavy tour promoting the new album which was released the previous month. Yes had already toured with Iron Butterfly right before the album’s release in January and were playing all of the UK then they traveled to Europe for this appearance.

The tape begins with the long “Also Spracht Zarathustra” tape leading into “Yours Is No Disgrace” lasting about twelve minutes and lacking the energy of other performances from this era. Perhaps they were tired from the trip over from England.

Jon Anderson greets the audience, saying: “Yeah, thank you. I’d like to say it’s nice to be here in Berlin. We finally got out of the studio and there’s life that, that may exist. We’re going to do a song from our third LP, a song that features Steve on a vachalia, here, thrashing away.” There seems to have been a problem with the house lights taht were finally fixed. Anderson reacts, “We’re getting the lights now” and Steve Howe can be heard saying “The lights, at last!” Anderson continues to describe the next song with the cryptic description, saying it’s “a song about people gathering, whatever… A song called ‘I’ve Seen All Good People.’”

It somes off much tighter than the first song and is fun to listen to. Anderson gives a long introduction to Howe who has his solo spot, saying, “Steven to my right, he’s going to play some acoustic guitar things, which you can just relax to, listen to, for us guys. And, he’s going to play, this is another track from the LP, this is a song, songs, lots of songs, if I do a tap dance. A song called ‘Clap.’” His song contains an interlude with Mason Williams’ “Classical Gas” as was the custom.

The final song on the tape is “Perpetual Change” which is “a song written down in Devon.” Bill Bruford’s drum solo sounds extremely heavy in this recording and at the end of the song Chris Squire acknowledges it saying: “That’s Bill Bruford there on that one, performing a drum break, drum solo, on drums” and Anderson chimes in “He’s so good I thought it was spot on right, son. It was.” The tape unfortunately runs out on what turns out to be a very good performance. Cracks Appeared In The Air is another recommended Highland release from this busy and important era for Yes.

Fixed up in September 2006 by TheTooleMan

Anyone willing to endure the trials of listening to a disintegrating recording of a fantastic performance will be amply rewarded. This is no sonic marvel, but it captures a rare performance of Steve Howe and Tony Kaye in peak psychedelic form while playing "Everydays." And in 35 years of listening of Howe playing "Clap," I don't think he ever topped this performance.

As someone in the band says, "Far out."

Here's what I did to improve this recording:

* reduced the pitch of the recording by up to 3 semitones between the beginning and the end of the recording (in other words, slowed it down to where Jon does not sound like a 4-year-old)
* create tracks in the appropriate places
* joined parts of songs which were interrupted or repeated due to tape flips
* EQ to reduce rumble and bring out more of the bass
* hiss reduction
* cut out extraneous clicks and pops, filled drop-outs, and smoothed transitions between tracks

As with the disclaimers on old commercial CD's, imperfections in the original tape may become more obvious with digital transfers and reproduction. In this case, the tape sounds like it was damaged and plays at irregular speed throughout. This could not be fixed in remastering. In one or two places, notably during "Everydays" and "America," the tape sounds like it has been stretched and is about to stop playing altogether. Fortunately, it does not.

1. Also Sprach Zarathustra
2. Yours Is No Disgrace
3. I've Seen All Good People
4. Clap > Classical Gas
5. Perpetual Change
6. Everydays

This is a favorite of mine, Yes in their early days, after the recording of "The Yes Album". It's a bit rough in place, but the band is in full power and they really stretch on some numbers. The version of Paul Simon's "America" is different from the one they recorded a year later or so with Wakeman. Also special is the rarely performed "Everydays". A good sample of what Yes was about back in the days when they were a real "progressive" band.

Sound quality is very good, for an audience and considering this is almost 37 years old. Enjoy.

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 is clearly for completists, soundwise I would rate it 6 out of 10. But it is a nice historical performance by the early Yes with still Tony Kaye onboard. First italian tour for the band that played Roma the day after. Pretty standard set for that period. Opening for Yes on that show it was a nice, rather unknown italian band with no records available yet but playing mostly covers and some of their compositions. The band was called Premiata Forneria Marconi...

this was recorded by a fan for fans enjoyment, not sale!

notes:
some of the loudest claps and noises between songs (and some persistent cheers to hear "Starship Trooper") were reduced to a more reasonable volume. none of the music was reduced, nothing was EQ'ed. this appears to be the full yes performance except a few seconds got cut nearly 4 min. into YIND.
some applause was spliced in following a couple of abruptly ending applauses in the original recording. it has the usual warts for a recording this age but is a pretty listenable recording for this time
and all the instruments and vocals come through clearly.
thanks to the unknown taper.
this tape source is probably a couple of analog tape generations, but not many, from the original recording.

This version came to me in a tape trade back in the early 80's and from what I can tell by listening to other versions this one is the longest and most complete. Granted, not a whole lot of extra time comes from the music, but more from the stage banter and crowd noise. I would rate this B+ or A-. Its quite good for an audience recording. I don't know the generation, but it seems fairly low. I'm reseeding this by request.

Enjoy!

Contrast Clause #2: This torrent differs from the existing one at http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=290852: this is from a copy of the SBD master reel and has been remixed by TheTooleMan, while that has not.

(I think that's what I meant to say.)

Of all the unofficial Yes recordings of all eras of the band that I've ever heard, this is my absolute hands-down favorite. It captures Yes on the verge of tremendous world-wide success, playing in front of a big audience that they needed to reach. Their excitement is tangible, and it comes through in their performance.

For you who may recall the surround-sound fantasy I created in 2005, this is the mix for the front channels of that little project. There is a bit of pseudo-stereo in this mix.

You will also note that the first few notes of "Yours Is No Disgrace," which were lost when the recording starting a few seconds late, have been reconstructed through a little clever splicing, using the same bars when they were repeated later in the performance.

This is my personal mix. I'm sharing it with you just 'cause I feel like it. I hope you enjoy it.

Peace, love, and turtle happiness

I'm the guy who borrowed the original reel and I must say that it does sound good. It has been a real pleasure to see this recording circulate the way it has since it was set free several years ago. It was truly a stroke of good fortune that landed that tape in my lap in the late 1980's ..... The original taper did in fact walk into the Yale bowl with an open reel deck and plug into the board. Yes were third on the bill to Grand Funk that night, the taper snagged the Yes, unplugged and left. Pity there was nothing this nice in the Yes vaults for the new box set .... I bought it anyway, gotta support the boys in their golden years. Enjoy, and an extra special thanks to the tape gods for their generosity ... Kev

The Model For Success collects two interesting documents from the beginning and end of The Yes Album era. The bulk of this release is their appearance at the Crystal Garden Party IV on July 31st, 1971. (Highland misstate this tape as August 23rd). Also on the bill were Fairport Convention, Rory Gallagher, Hookfoot, Elton John, Dee Murray, Nigel Olsson, and Tir Na Nog. The forty-five minute audience recording is very good and, despite being bass-heavy is very enjoyable. It cuts in at the very beginning of “Yours Is No Disgrace,” has a big cut in “America” eliminating the final five minutes, and cuts out thirteen minutes into “Perpetual Change,” cutting out the rest of that song and the encore “It’s Love.”

Four songs, “Yours Is No Disgrace,” “I’ve Seen All Good People,” “America” clocking in at 16:21 and the eleven minute “It’s Love” are included on the official release The Word Is Live. This show was a one-off appearance about a week after their first tour of the US and captures the band with infectious enthusiasm and confidence. They played some of their best shows in New York and New Haven and it carries over to this one as well.

After opening with “Yours Is No Disgrace,” Jon Anderson speaks to the audience and tells them about their trip, saying: “we’ve just been to America and did a few things, dates over there. It’s nice to be able to come back to such a beautiful looking place and play, fantastic, and see so many people. We’re going to do a song, also from the third LP, featuring thrasher Steve over here, on his vachalia. And this song is in two parts. The first part is called ‘Your Move’ the second part ‘I’ve Seen Good People.’”

The highlight of this tape is the full version of “America” with extra verses and musical interludes. It is fortunate that it is cut off in this recording, but the official release more than makes up for this tragic cut. It would be played in the first show on the Close To The Edge tour in Dallas on July 30th, 1972 (almost a full year later) but would disappear for twenty-five years. This is the last time the full version would be played live, however, with subsequent performances being the edited nine-minute version. Steve Howe plays “Clap” with the “Classical Gas” interlude.

There is a short delay before “Perpetual Change.” Steve Howe mentions “there’s a baby crying.” Anderson is trying to discuss the next song, saying ”it’s all about nature. The forces of mother, I think nature I guess. There’s an incredible film, it was on in America over there it’s probably coming over here. If it does please do. It’s a film called The Hellstrom Chronicle. Very very strange film. It’s about nature. This is called ‘Perpetual Change.’” The depth of the recording is very good in emphasizing the power in Bruford’s drumming, something that is not always obvious in listening to the audience tapes from this time and it’s a shame the tape cuts out. But, as is the case with “America,” the encore “It’s Love” is present on the official live album.

As it turned out Tony Kaye would be fired after this gig to be replaced by Rick Wakeman and they would spend the rest of the summer recording Fragile and go off on tour in September. Kaye would of course rejoin Yes a decade later but this show really is the finale of the particular form of progressive rock which was defined by the strong sound of the Hammond organ. Wakeman would expand the vocabulary greatly with subsequent Yes recordings.

The final tracks on The Model For Success date from the preceeding summer. Yes played the 10th Plumpton Festival on August 9th, 1970 and Highland use a good but distorted audience recording of their set. “I’ve Seen All Good People” and “America” appear on A Venture Seeker (Highland HL341/342) but the entire tape appears on this release which cuts out seven minutes into “America.”

It is a shame it’s incomplete because this is the second earliest tape in circulation with Steve Howe as guitarist in the band (the earliest obviously is the July 17th Lyceum tape from which “Clap” on The Yes Album is taken, but unfortunately the entire show has never surfaced either officially or from an audience recording).

The tape starts with Jon Anderson saying, “We’re going to start off with a song from our second album which is on release now in thousands of shops. It’s a nice evening isn’t it? We’re going to do a song called ‘Astral Traveller’. So here we go.” Time And A Word was their latest release, having just been released in June, and this was one of their more progressive songs. Their new album with Howe wouldn’t be recorded until the fall, but they follow with what is probably the first song written with Howe “I’ve Seen All Good People.” Even at this early stage it is divided into two parts, but the first “All Good People” has a different arrangement than would be finally recorded in October. The opening statement of the title goes on longer and both the vocal and vachalia melodies differ. The second part remains however.

Anderson introduces Howe for his solo piece, saying: “Steve, our guitarist, recently joined us. We have many a happy hour playing in Devon listening to his funky guitar playing and here’s a song he used to play to us, to send us to sleep, or send us on our way to sleep and this song he calls ‘The Clap’.” There has been discussion about whether the song is titled “Clap” or “The Clap,” with the definite article with some claiming that Anderson’s introduction in the Lyceum show heard on The Yes Album is simply misheard. This tape illustrates that isn’t the case and that after two weeks of playing he is still introducing it as “The Clap.” Howe plays it as it sounds on the album without any ”Classical Gas” embellishments.

Before “America” the mc comes on stage and makes an announcement, saying: “I think maybe we’d better dedicate the next one, set of two fine gentleman who want a lift to..uh Scotland. Hope you have your railway tickets. Just tell them that we can give them a lift to the Charing Cross Road.” It was a chilly evening and people took the wooden chairs from the press area to make a bonfire about 30 yards from the stage. They were extinguished by this time and Anderson acknowledges it, saying, “Well those bonfires are out. Well the most beautiful songs that Simon and Garfunkel have actually written, Paul Simon has written. This next one is our favorite and we hope you all like it. It you want to sing along please do. It’s called America.” This is the earliest recording of their cover and unfortunately cuts out after five minutes. Except for a few details in the arrangement it is close to the recorded version. Overall, these are two essential documents and this is another must have.
