I dug out my tapes and found this gem. This was Alan White's first Yes show and it was also Yes's first show of the first US leg of the Close To Edge tour (got that?). While the recording is not complete and not all that great, it is a piece of Yes history. The story goes that the tour was booked and Bill Bruford got the call from Robert Fripp (King Crimson) and quit Yes. They got Alan White, who at the time was sharing an apartment with Eddy Offord (Yes producer and tour sound guy). White was told he had 3 days to learn the material and he stepped up to the plate. This performance shows the weaknesses of both the new material being played and White being new to all the Yes songs. The band plays fast, but White hangs on. Another surprise from this show is the inclusion of Paul Simon's America.

I'm not sure of the lineage of my tapes as I got them in a trade years ago. Probably at least a 2nd gen, but remarkably not much hiss and pitch was not off that bad either. I did redo the audio to correct ptich, reduce the hollowness of the venue, bring out some bass, and brighten the highs to hear cymbals. The band sounds distant, but loud during the loud passages and almost inaudible during the quiet moments. The taper must have been way far away from the stage. The only good thing about that is that the drums have a slight echo to them so you can hear White in all his glory!

FY says the other acts were the Eagles & The Mahavishnu Orchestra. This tape doesn't circulate much because it is relatively low-fi and there is a lot of "audience participation." It is still a really fun ride and early CTTE shows are tough to come by. Like so many of these shows, this is from the vast library of Bill B., and if you like C+ cassettes, this one's for you.

enjoy!

Columbia was hit with a thunderstorm during the concert, and it's all captured on the tape. Sounds great, especially during Heart Of The Sunrise, and Wakeman's crash and burn WWII sound effects.

Lineage: audience -> CDR -> EAC -> Sound Forge -> FLAC
Remastered by TheTooleMan 2002, 2007

Recently, someone asked for opinions on what would be the top 10 must-have Yes ROIO’s. On my list, this is definitely near the top. Good recording quality, a powerful performance, and Mother Nature’s fury all wrapped into 80 minutes.

This remarkable recording documents Yes summoning a strong thunderstorm on a summer’s afternoon. The clouds gather, thunder booms and rain pours as the band plays “And You And I” and “Heart of the Sunrise.” Natural rumblings augment Rick Wakeman’s synthesized bombing of London and the Hallelujah Chorus. Jon and Steve both seem at ease with the situation. Jon sings a bit of The Eagle’s hit “Take It Easy” (The Eagles were opening for Yes on this leg of the tour) and Steve chimes in with a few chords of “It Don’t Come Easy,” a hit for Ringo Starr during the same period. Jon also suggests that “everybody from the back come and sit on everybody's knee and we'll have a good time” while it rains. Whether or not that happened cannot be gathered from the recording, but the crowd never loses its enthusiasm for the music. By the time Yes returned to the stage for their encore, “Yours Is No Disgrace,” the clouds had parted and the rain ended.

What more could you want? Close to the Edge, perhaps, but that track had its live debut the next night in Hartford, CT.

The audio restoration work on this tape is not mine, this is the way it was presented to me. What I have done is to rejoin the cut "And You And I", remove several glitches, do some volume balancing, and repackage it for your listening pleasure. The person who did the work wishes to remain anonymous, but I do have to thank BosomyD for supplying it.

Sound quality is what you might expect from an outdoor show from a long time ago. The restoration work is adequate, with the pitch done perfectly and the EQ a bit on the bright and harsh side. Mix is good with all instruments audible. I believe this show to be from a low generation tape. Yes seem to have some crowd-control problems, but put on a polite and reserved performance of very high quality. Their work on early classics really shines, and if you like the group you probably want this.

I have three different recordings of this show:

BB Hybrid (right side)
EP Hybrid (left side) - this one <<<<<<<<<<
Doinker - uploaded here last year

According to Jon Babcock's excellent site about old Yes tapes (only the CTTE tour section is currently available -Jon kindly re-uploaded it for me to get the information about the tapes for this show) there are four recordings of this show. Details below (remember these were written many years ago):

**********************************************************************************

~ GAELIC PARK 1972 ~
Well don't that just beat all! Get back, I say. Guess what? There are 4-- count 'em FOUR -- audience tapes from Gaelic Park in 1972. And they are all pretty good for 1972 tapes.

8/16/72 Gaelic Park, The Bronx, NY. 77mins
The First is the complete one, probably on a 90min tape, with the Firebird through about 30seconds of applause past the encore. I got mine, which sounds like 5th gen or so, from WennyK, so I'll refer to it as WK1 from here on . This one was also edited down to a 60min tape by the tapers at one point, before they circulated it, with lots of the talking between the songs edited out. Hence Pete's transcription on FY.

[phundercover: this is probably the version circulated by Doinker]

The 2nd tape is the Mystery One sent to me earlier this summer from Bill B., hence I will refer to it as BB. A totally different recording, and the best one. Sounds like it was done from a mic stand high above the crowd or very near the PA. Truly great. The tape was one 90min and the Gaelic parts included started about 2mins into SibKhat, and had conveniently spliced out the part where Jon says "good to be back in NY" afterwards. I'll let you ponder the reason for that. Oddly, it also splices out Alan's intro before AYAI and some of Jon's trying to calm the crowd before HOTS. Also missing are the first notes of Roundabout, a 2min. chunk near the end of HOTS and the entire Mood For A Day. Instead of Mood, however, it splices in a SBD Clap>Mood>Clap arrangement. There was also the Mystery CTTE on that tape. (More on this below)

(BB Hybrid: 76:41)
01. Firebird (WK1) 1:19
02. Siberian Khatru (WK1/BB/WK1 after) 9:28
03. I've Seen All Good People (BB/WK1 after) 7:13
04. Jon & Steve calm the crowd (WK1/NM) 0:35
05. Clap (NM) 2:59
06. Jon calms the crowd (NM/BB) 1:15
07. Heart Of The Sunrise (BB/NM) 11:16
08. AYAI intro (NM/BB)1:36
09. And You And I (BB) 9:32
10. Rick Intro (BB) 0:23
11. Rick Wakeman Solo (BB) 6:26
12. Roundabout (BB/WK1 after) 8:17
13. encore applause (WK1/NM/BB) 1:49
14. Yours Is No Disgrace (BB/WK1)14:22

[The version I have has had the speed adjusted so the timings are slightly different]

The 3rd tape is a new one, just unearthed this year, and is complete from Steve's solo on (which means no Firebird, Siberian or AGP) and it's the second best tape. The taper has a handheld mic and there's a little noise from shuffling that around, and some nearby clapping which means those big clap spikes, but the dynamics are great and it's from the Master, so there!

(NM Hybrid: 76:26)
01. Firebird (WK1) 1:19
02. Siberian Khatru (WK1/BB) 9:28
03. I've Seen All Good People (BB/WK1 after) 7:14
04. Jon & Steve calm the crowd (WK1/NM) 0:35
05. Clap (NM) 2:58
06. Jon calms the crowd (NM) 1:01
07. Heart Of The Sunrise (NM) 11:24
08. AYAI intro (NM)1:36
09. And You And I (NM) 9:22
10. Rick Intro (NM) 0:38
11. Rick Wakeman Solo (NM) 6:20
12. Roundabout (NM/BB/WK1) 8:22
13. Encore applause (WK1/BB/NM) 1:52
14. Yours Is No Disgrace (NM/WK1)14:22

[I think this is the 'EP Hybrid'; again there has been a speed adjustment so the timings are slightly different]

Each tape has different dynamics, though and is very nice in it's own right. Unfortunately, the Old, complete Gaelic (WK1) that I have is not so great, probably just the generation. To make each one complete, I've put pieces of them together, cross-faded the patches matched the speed of each, but I'm still looking for a super-low gen of the complete recording, which of course, means i get to do it all over again.

8/16/72 Gaelic Park, The Bronx, NY. 73m
Here's the old one from Bill B. which he couldn't identify. i was sure it was this show, only sourced without all Jon's chatter removed. Now I know a little better. It was all out of order and put together to construct a Fantasy show with a Mystery CTTE added. I reconstructed it before I could compare it with another from this show. Steve's interesting arrangement of Clap>Mood>Clap arrangement before which Jon says: "I feel like singing. I enjoy singing," and Steve says: "We're just gonna wait for some things to come through the line....it sounded real good this afternoon." Don't know where that comes from offhand -- anybody?-- but it sounds like a board tape and i've never heard this arrangement before. It could also be "doctored," I suppose, but I think not. This whole tape was out of order and I had to reconstruct it, which isn't the best possible scenario, but it's fun if you're in the mood to do that. The Mystery CTTE i think is from one of the Vinyl Yessongs boots. Maybe the Clap/Mood/Clap thing is from that, too, dunno. It's very clean -- too clean for vinyl. Now that I've done this twice, I'm not so sure the YIND on this one is actually FROM this show, the sound is very different. I'll have to check into this when the 4th (New version1?) tape arrives.

8/16/72 Gaelic Park, The Bronx, NY. 77mins
The First is the complete one, probably on a 90min tape, with the Firebird through about 30seconds of applause past the encore. I got mine, which sounds like 5th gen or so, from WennyK, so I'll refer to it as WK1 from here on . This one was also edited down to a 60min tape by the tapers at one point, before they circulated it, with lots of the talking between the songs edited out. Hence Pete's transcription on FY.

[phundercover: this is probably the version circulated by Doinker]

The 2nd tape is the Mystery One sent to me earlier this summer from Bill B., hence I will refer to it as BB. A totally different recording, and the best one. Sounds like it was done from a mic stand high above the crowd or very near the PA. Truly great. The tape was one 90min and the Gaelic parts included started about 2mins into SibKhat, and had conveniently spliced out the part where Jon says "good to be back in NY" afterwards. I'll let you ponder the reason for that. Oddly, it also splices out Alan's intro before AYAI and some of Jon's trying to calm the crowd before HOTS. Also missing are the first notes of Roundabout, a 2min. chunk near the end of HOTS and the entire Mood For A Day. Instead of Mood, however, it splices in a SBD Clap>Mood>Clap arrangement. There was also the Mystery CTTE on that tape. (More on this below)

(BB Hybrid: 76:41)
01. Firebird (WK1) 1:19
02. Siberian Khatru (WK1/BB/WK1 after) 9:28
03. I've Seen All Good People (BB/WK1 after) 7:13
04. Jon & Steve calm the crowd (WK1/NM) 0:35
05. Clap (NM) 2:59
06. Jon calms the crowd (NM/BB) 1:15
07. Heart Of The Sunrise (BB/NM) 11:16
08. AYAI intro (NM/BB)1:36
09. And You And I (BB) 9:32
10. Rick Intro (BB) 0:23
11. Rick Wakeman Solo (BB) 6:26
12. Roundabout (BB/WK1 after) 8:17
13. encore applause (WK1/NM/BB) 1:49
14. Yours Is No Disgrace (BB/WK1)14:22

[The version I have has had the speed adjusted so the timings are slightly different]

The 3rd tape is a new one, just unearthed this year, and is complete from Steve's solo on (which means no Firebird, Siberian or AGP) and it's the second best tape. The taper has a handheld mic and there's a little noise from shuffling that around, and some nearby clapping which means those big clap spikes, but the dynamics are great and it's from the Master, so there!

(NM Hybrid: 76:26)
01. Firebird (WK1) 1:19
02. Siberian Khatru (WK1/BB) 9:28
03. I've Seen All Good People (BB/WK1 after) 7:14
04. Jon & Steve calm the crowd (WK1/NM) 0:35
05. Clap (NM) 2:58
06. Jon calms the crowd (NM) 1:01
07. Heart Of The Sunrise (NM) 11:24
08. AYAI intro (NM)1:36
09. And You And I (NM) 9:22
10. Rick Intro (NM) 0:38
11. Rick Wakeman Solo (NM) 6:20
12. Roundabout (NM/BB/WK1) 8:22
13. Encore applause (WK1/BB/NM) 1:52
14. Yours Is No Disgrace (NM/WK1)14:22

[I think this is the 'EP Hybrid'; again there has been a speed adjustment so the timings are slightly different]

Each tape has different dynamics, though and is very nice in it's own right. Unfortunately, the Old, complete Gaelic (WK1) that I have is not so great, probably just the generation. To make each one complete, I've put pieces of them together, cross-faded the patches matched the speed of each, but I'm still looking for a super-low gen of the complete recording, which of course, means i get to do it all over again.

8/16/72 Gaelic Park, The Bronx, NY. 73m
Here's the old one from Bill B. which he couldn't identify. i was sure it was this show, only sourced without all Jon's chatter removed. Now I know a little better. It was all out of order and put together to construct a Fantasy show with a Mystery CTTE added. I reconstructed it before I could compare it with another from this show. Steve's interesting arrangement of Clap>Mood>Clap arrangement before which Jon says: "I feel like singing. I enjoy singing," and Steve says: "We're just gonna wait for some things to come through the line....it sounded real good this afternoon." Don't know where that comes from offhand -- anybody?-- but it sounds like a board tape and i've never heard this arrangement before. It could also be "doctored," I suppose, but I think not. This whole tape was out of order and I had to reconstruct it, which isn't the best possible scenario, but it's fun if you're in the mood to do that. The Mystery CTTE i think is from one of the Vinyl Yessongs boots. Maybe the Clap/Mood/Clap thing is from that, too, dunno. It's very clean -- too clean for vinyl. Now that I've done this twice, I'm not so sure the YIND on this one is actually FROM this show, the sound is very different. I'll have to check into this when the 4th (New version1?) tape arrives.

(One Disc: 73:00)

Continuing my theme of Yes history, we have here 2 versions of the same show at which Yes premiered Close To the Edge. They had previously played And You & I and Siberian Khatru on the first US leg of the tour and now they were kicking off a 2-week mini tour of the UK at the Crystal Palace Garden Party. This show was marred by power problems and PA problems, not to mention the BBC broadcast of the Munich Games coming through the PA as well. Also, Wakeman seemed to have keyboard tuning problems. Close To The Edge was very rough as you'll hear, but it does make for interesting listening. As a piece of trivia, at the end of Close To The Edge the band usually adds 2 extra chords to bring the key down so Jon can sing the end without a lot of effort (before 'On the hill we viewed the silence of the valley...'). In this version they had not yet decided to do that. As you'll hear, I bet the decision was made pretty quick after this performance. :)

I had, for a long time, a version of this show on tape that was almost unlistenable due to interference. This is included in this torrent as Version 2. The sample is pretty respresentative of a better moment. Discs 1 and 2 are 'remastered' from a source I got from Jonathan Babcock. Not only was the sound much better, but it is a near complete show while my tape version was not. As a side note, Forgotten Yesterdays lists that Yours Is No Disgrace was not played. It was and is inlcuded here.

lineage of both versions is unknown, but the 2-disc set is low-gen as is evident by the pitch being perfect.

This has been in my binder since I fixed it up five years ago. Relayerman encouraged me to seed it, so I did. It's one hell of a performance, too. Yes is ON FIRE on this night in Glasgow. They burn through Siberian Khatru. The audience roars.

Close to the Edge is performed live for only the second time on this night. Jon gives the introduction, as transcribed by Jon Babcock and published on Forgotten Yesterdays at http://forgottenyesterdays.com/date.asp?s=5&tname=4&tdate=248&navb=10:

"Actually..uh Yeah, we're gonna, actually we're gonna play for a long time hope you, be around. We'd like to try something we haven't played before. Well, we played it, a couple of days ago. It's a new, a new song for us and..uh hope you'll sing along 'cause we need a bit of help. It's..uh a song from..uh the new album. It's..uh it'a very, yeah. Okay I'm just waiting for him to get in tune. And it starts off. If you listen very, very closely, it starts off..uh with the sound of a river and..uh it relates, it relates to a lot of things about Herman Hesse and things like the fact that we all come from the sea. The sea is alive. And we should look after it when we're not doing what we're gonna do. I hope. And..uh the song is called 'Close To The Edge'. I forget the words I'm lost."

Jon also compliments the audience:

"I've got, I've got to say something, but..uh we've been, we've been, we've been playing..uh very busy lately over the last three months and you're the first people to ever clap in time."

The tape is another matter, and it seems to fit my theory that the quality of a recording is inversely proportional to the quality of the performance it captures. In this case, the Highland recording has a mountain of low-frequency hum, centered around 86 hz. I removed most of the hum, and the result is a lot more listenable, but the recording does not come anywhere close to what you'd call "high fidelity." Oh well. Your imagination can fill in the missing parts. That's what imaginations are for.

***PREVIOUSLY UNCIRCULATED***

This is an authentic, previously uncirculated recording of Yes. Thanks to Chris Gregory for providing the high-quality transfer of his tape.

Chris did not use the automatic level control in his tape recorder during the making of this recording. As a result, the dynamics of the recording represent the actual loud and quiet passages of the performance. There is a fair amount of tape hiss in the quiet passages, including many of Jon's remarks between songs and during Steve's and Rick's solos.

I employed Sony Vegas Pro and Sound Forge Pro to master the tape, with a minimal amount of noise reduction to enhance the quiet passages without marring the music hiding under the hiss. A bit of pitch correction was required, and some EQ brought out the highs and lows.

We owe Chris a big "thank you" for sharing this historic document.

Notes from the taper:

I provided the raw 24 bit WAV files direct from the tape to ‘TheTooleMan’.

The Lineage of this recording is as follows:

The source was a BASF C120 LH Cassette Tape recorded on a Bush TP-60 cassette tape recorder in mono with its purpose built hand held microphone, without AGC, and at a fixed manual recording level.

The tape was played back with azimuth correction on a Sony Stereo WM-DD33 Walkman and then digitised on a ZOOM H2 recorder @ 48 KHz to 24bit WAVs. No Dolby NR or EQ was used during this transfer.

There was one tape flip after ‘Heart of the Sunrise’ and before ‘Close to the Edge’. I wasn’t able to record all of the extended ‘Yours is No Disgrace’ encore as the tape ran out. As I recall I don’t think I missed much, maybe a couple of minutes or so.

On the original tape it is difficult to hear what Jon is saying but from what I have heard of ‘TheToolemans’ remaster I can definitely make out more of what Jon is saying in between tracks. I also noted that Jon’s accent back then sounds to be more typical of Manchester, Northern England (in that he grew up in Accrington, near Manchester). But over the years he lost that accent, gradually, as he spent more time in the States.

This was recorded in the Kings Hall at Belle Vue Zoo in Manchester, England. (See ‘Kings Hall’ here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belle_Vue_Zoological_Gardens). I was about 17 or 18 at the time and I remember going along in my Afghan coat with two girlfriends, called Jill and Sarah. If you listen carefully you can probably hear them, especially during the opening (excerpt from the Firebird Suite - Stravinsky).

We were sat near the back of the hall to the right and as I recall there was only one level of seats.

At the time it was first uploaded, it was an authentic, previously uncirculated recording of Yes. Now, for the first time, I am making available the 24-bit 48 kHz mastered version of the recording, which I downsampled to CD-compatible format for the 2011 bit torrent.

Comments:
I was told by basscase2, who was the taper of this recording, that this show was postponed because it rained heavily on the August date, and Dillon Stadium is a football arena without a roof of any kind (just another reason I don't like big outdoor shows). Fortunately this show did get made up, much to the delight of Yesheads in Connecticut (they do have a few). This was one of my 1st digital transfers, first done from the master tapes. Like most of my earliest transfers it wound up on a glitchy CD, and that wound up in the trash because I can't find it. So I had to do a new transfer from the 1st gen. tape I have of it which I got before I had a computer. I was not happy about that,
having to add a gen. but I don't think the difference is very noticable, since it is a 1st gen. tape copied Nak. to Nak. onto a Maxell XLII (no dolby on the master or the copy.) that hasn't been played much so it sounds good. I've been trying to get BC to post it, he's still trying to figure out uploading. (it took me awhile). someone else told me this was to be the first live performance of CTTE, had this show happened when planned, but the postponement of the show made that not the case. This was a nice concert, about as long as 72 Yes shows get with several of my favorite songs. there
is some between song editing, and a tape flip cut in CTTE, but just missing a few seconds. I spliced it, you'll notice it (during the keyboard part in the middle) but it's not too abrupt. Otherwise it seems to be complete except the 1st second or 2 of a couple of songs. I only edited out some
recorder shutoff and turn-on noises. this is all that was recorded and the sound is pretty listenable for this era, especially for a stadium gig. Not that much crowd noise at all in here. This one is for the Toole Man and Relayerman and probably alot of folks since there are many who like Yes music, and just as many who like Bruford in any capacity (like me). This is one of the better 72 auds I've heard.

So enjoy it.
Share it.
Do not sell this recording (or you will be reincarnated as a WURM)
Do not encode to MP3 or lossy format for circulation.
Save what highs there are left in here (and in life, if possible).

Total running time 1:22:53 (in WinAmp)

I got this source in a trade with "RevealingYes" (fellow Dime user, and allround good guy ;-)) years ago (Thanks Huub!).
It was an LP recorded on tape (no info on equipment used, long time ago).
I offered it some time ago (last year) on another torrent site too, just the way it was, but there were a lot of things wrong with it, such as speed, pitch, trackorder and worst of all, the constant crackling of the vynil!

I did to do the best i could, within my powers, with the source provided, but the crackling sound was impossible to remove without touching the rest of the recording, so i left that the way it was.

I did do some tweaking on the pitch and speed (it`s better, but i`m sure it is still way off) and mixed the 2 channels to 2 channel mono.

I also corrected the trackorder, and this is now in the order of the setlist as stated on Forgotten Yesterdays. FY is ofcourse our very valuable source for information on Yes shows (thank you Pete Whipple).

I`m not saying it`s perfect, far from it, and someone with more knowledge of speed correction and pitch control etc. can do a much better job, i`m sure, but with what i did to it, it`s does sound better than it was!

I left the cuts as they were on the LP, i didn`t do any crossfading or anything, as this too would not do the recording any good, considering that some tracks fade out prematurely.

Removing drop-outs or minor other meaningless bits and possible errors will not improve this recording in any way! So just enjoy it the way it is (i`m sure you will if you are a fan).

When i seeded this first time around, someone in the comments section said that he/she had a better version still on vynil and would upload that rip soon, but this still has not happened, so i`m uploading this version again for those who maybe missed it the first time!
It seems to be a rare one as i have never seen it anywhere else as an upload.

So if anyone does have a better version of this show, then please (pretty please) share it with us, i`ll be happy to pull this version if it gets us a better version/quality to treasure/share.

In the meantime, please enjoy this one (it`s a nice raw performance, as many were at that time)!

CD-R EAC ripped to wave, all tracks pasted together, tweaked, mixed to 2 channel mono
and split into separate tracks using Cool Edit Pro 2.1, converted to flac 6 using TLH.
No idea about lineage (recording equipment or otherwise).
All images included in this torrent were taken from Forgotten Yesterdays.

It seems that there were SBE errors, so these were fixed too (even though they are not a major issue anymore).
Simple cover art, newly made md5 checksums from fixed files, shntool fix reports & original eac logs included.

All files have been tested and without error!

A SHORT NOTE FROM GROMEK:

The tracklist order on the original LP differs from the setlist given on “Forgotten Yesterdays”. I’m not sure which is correct,
but I went with the FY setlist as they tend to be the best source for accuracy overall.

I posted a recording of this show earlier on Dime, but that one was taken from a cassette tape recording from an old and
bad quality LP.

At that time I only had that version of it and so I asked for someone to provide us with a better version if it was out there.
There was one offer, but that person retracted it stating that his version was more or less the same bad quality as it was now,
so no luck there!

Much later a newer Dime member and fellow Yes fan called “Luciferburns” offered a nice fresh recording of his LP,
as his version was so much better sounding than my initial upload. The show’s source was of course the same quality,
but the vinyl was in much better shape!

So I asked “Luciferburns” to send me one recording using the Dolby ON setting and one with the Dolby OFF setting on
CD-R (each album side in one piece, so tracksplitting could be done later), so “Lestat” could see which one could be
used to get the most out of the recording. His findings and work process are featured below.

I want to thank “Luciferburns” for a chance to offer all Yes fans a better quality recording of this show and for his patience
with us, I hope you like what you hear after waiting so long. Thanks also (as always) to “Lestat” for all his work on this
recording, this release could not be realized without it.

To all others, considering everything, I hope you will like what you hear.

- Gromek, April 2009.

SOURCE AND REMASTER IN DEPTH

In the spirit of starting with a positive, this was one fine Yes performance. In fact it’s my favorite of all the CTTE tour ARs I’ve
heard, many of which seem almost lackluster. Very strange for a tour in support of such a groundbreaking album by a band
thoroughly in its prime, but it’s a subjective impression to say the least.

There was a unique energy and tightness in Kitchener in any case, and this recording captures it. Unusual band-audience
intimacy too, right down to an exchange between Jon Anderson and a crowd member over PA volume [not entirely a friendly
one, but fascinating to hear].

Musical delivery from beginning to end right was on the money, and Wakeman’s keyboards actually seem more ‘real’ than in
many an AR of superior capture quality. “Close to the Edge” was especially magnificent despite JA having a serious vocal
problem toward its ending.

Regrettably, the recording quality leaves much to be desired to put it mildly. Having intervening vinyl noise definitely does not
help and normally I regard trying to restore AR signal from vinyl a complete waste of time. Making things all the more depressing,
we have a post-vinyl cassette generation.

Regardless, the Kitchener ’72 performance and lack of any other source for it not even worse for sound quality dictated an exception.
This one turned out to be the best of three digitized sources I know of, probably from better vinyl and vinyl playback quality at least.

The ‘Dolby Off’ file Gromek mentions had to be used due to the source’ already almost nonexistent high frequency detail. Between
the bootleg vinyl and an audience capture on the poor side even for 1972 very little could be done without simply enhancing [or
creating] distortion, but signal now does have somewhat more separation and definition than it did when I received it. Upper
frequency detail especially in the percussion is most heavily lacking, but at least things like crash cymbals are now recognizable
as such and there’s more of a sense of natural space than in the raw source.

Vinyl noise is quite evident but not overwhelming as it was in the other two sources. In any case while some software designed to
remove clicks, pops and rumble can do a decent job of it when studio recordings are involved, like so-called clap modulation
programs even the best are universally disastrous to AR signal – creating unacceptable dropouts in everything. So, no vinyl
noise reduction attempted.

In sum, “completist” firmly defines this recording and anyone expecting anything like a Balrog-Lestat project will be sorely
disappointed. There just wasn’t much to work with here. In context of most early 1970s audience captures however, the most
dedicated Yes fans should find it worthy of their collections. The raw source to me was utterly unlistenable, but I can listen to
and enjoy it now – especially for that Yes performance. Unless someone comes forward with the original master tapes and
they’re still viable, it’s considerably better than no document for this date at all.

Using the ‘filters of the mind’, Kitchener ’72 should make for some real enjoyment.

from a TDK-D90min Tape I picked up on the streets of Manhatten back in the 1980's
there was a midnight flea market on west 4th or west 8th street and some guy sold these tapes for $5. and $10. each
although I may have traded with him for this one (I don't remember I was stoned at the
time)
at any rate here is my copy of this very good YES show

NOTES:

This edition of Marshal's legendary recording has been mastered using 24/96 Hi-Definition bit mapping. As of this writing, no known version of "Duke" has original, complete versions of AYAI and YIND.

The Yours Is No Disgrace "Through The Ages" mix is a mosaic of 30 years worth of performances for this classic Yessong. It is NOT intended to be a "best of" montage, but rather a journey of its' different incarnations (both good and bad), and the many ways the band has presented it through the years. And You & I has been restored via period recordings and is presented in it's entirely: as well as some other small passages that, in no way, compromise the integrity of this concert. The restoration techniques used in this edition were used strictly to provide continuity for the listener.

I got this show in a trade several years ago and decided after looking at my notes on the show that this would be worth seeding on DIME for a couple of reasons. One, this show is the last show of the Yes's Fall North American tour of that year, and two, this show is full of flubs and missed notes (Heart Of The Sunrise is a train wreck).

After listening to the tape I knew that it needed a lot of work so I redid the audio to restore a lot of stuff and speed corrected as well. The lineage is unknown, but I would guess at least a 2nd gen or more. I haven't seen this on DIME before so I decided to go to work. The taper apparently tried to be judiicious with tape so most of the in-between song chatter is missing and there is a lot of microphone noise. I doctored this as best a possible.

You will agree that this is a far superior recording compared to the 12th.
I'll keep asking... Anyone out there got Nagoya from the 11th or Kyoto from the 14th?

Close To The East is a new tape source for Yes’ second show in Tokyo on their first visit to Japan. This show surfaced previously as Hallelujah (Dirty 13 Volume 1 D13-01 A/B) and Heart Of Yes (Platinum & Gold PG730309) as a good and listenable audience recording.

This new release by Ayanami uses a new and previously uncirculated tape source that sounds closer to the stage and is much better sounding. All the instruments are clear and enjoyable although there is noticeable distortion in the upper end. It isn’t too distracting but it is present. Unfortunately the tape is missing the encores “Yours Is No Disgrace” and “Starship Trooper”. The label could and should have edited the encores from the older tape source but unfortunately chosen not to.

That is unfortunate because this is arguably the best of the three Tokyo shows. The first one on March 8th sounds like they were too nervous and the following evening they were too loose (maybe too much sake??), but this one is just phenomenal.

“Close To The Edge” is dedicated to the Tokyo’s anti-pollution because, as Anderson explains, “When we flew into Tokyo airport we can’t see Tokyo. Better get rid of it. Come tomorrow and sweep it up.” He even throws in a version of “Colours Of The Rainbow”. This ditty is the first verse of “The Beautiful Land” from a musical called The Roar Of The Greasepaint - The Smell Of The Crowd and Anderson sang it regularly on the Going For The One tour in 1977.

Rick Wakeman’s solo spot has the usual nods to The Six Wives of Henry VIII but also includes an boogie interlude and an electronic sounding motif that is unique to this performance which segues into a motif from “Siberian Khatru” which in turn segues into “Roundabout”. It’s very interesting and a surprising way to end the show.

Close To The East is individually numbered and is one of the very few actual silver titles manufactured by Ayanami in their run before they turned into Sirene. For those who don’t collect professional cdrs it was a shame they used this format since they released many great titles. As it is this is a very good release that could have been better with a nice editing job for the encores. But the new tape source is very good and close to excellent and is worth owning

Excellent audience recording of the third date from the first Yes tour of Japan.
This is taken from the Sirene boot 'Yes In Japan'.

Comments: This is a new version sourced from the Sirene labeled silver CD. The end of "Trooper" is missing, as is the very beginning of "Siberian Khatru." There is also a cut in "Close To The Edge". Edits included patching some right channel dropouts, smoothing out the cut in "Close To The Edge", widening the stereo field and some dehissing/EQ to make it less harsh sounding.

Thanks to John T for liberating the Sirene bootleg.

ORIGINAL SIRENE BOOT INFO:

Bird Of Prey (Siréne-200)

Kouseinenkin Kaikan, Osaka, Japan - March 12th, 1973

Disc 1: Firebird Suite, Siberian Khatru, Heart Of The Sunrise, Sakura Sakura, Mood For A Day, Clap, And You And I, Close To The Edge

Disc 2: keyboard solo, Roundabout, Yours Is No Disgrace, Starship Trooper

Bird Of Prey contains an almost complete new audience recording that has never circulated before for Yes’ concert in Osaka on their first tour of Japan. The sound quality is distant, thin and hissy being taped a fair distance from the stage. The older tape source was previously released on silver on And You And I (RDM-942007A/B) on Rag Doll Music and Sirene used this source for a cut in the newer source at 16:28 into “Close To The Edge” for about a minute. Comparing the two, the older one sounds a bit better than the new with more dynamics and makes the use of the new tape source questionable.

A remastered version of the older Osaka tape might have been better than using the newer source for most of the show. Regardless Bird Of Prey is enjoyable enough and contains a very good show by the band. There is a similar dynamic to the Tokyo shows with the opening numbers sounding stiff but with the band loosening up considerably as the show goes on. Wakeman has tuning problems on the mellotron during the opening number “Siberian Khatru”, but ”Heart Of The Sunrise” is played much better. Jon Anderson sings the traditional Japanese ballad “Sakura Sakura” accompanied by Steve Howe on the acoustic guitar.

Howe is given a two song acoustic set for his solo piece and he plays “Mood For A Day” and “Clap” individually and not as a medley as he had the previous year. The latter contains a reference to “Classical Gas” as it did in 1970 and 1971 and Howe also becomes a bit lost in the middle.

Before “Close To The Edge”, the centerpiece of the evening, Anderson says, “Thank you. As time goes on we seem to find, make an album very different and this is the long track from the last album we did and we hope you’re going to like it. It’s a song relating to the way we feel about music. Music is a very strong influence somewhere along the line and lots of things. I know you can’t understand what I’m saying but I’m sure you understand lots of things about music that most people don’t understand our music. It’s a strange thing to say isn’t Edward? Yeah I think so too. Really. This is a song called ‘Close To The Edge’.”

What follows is arguably the very best early live version of the piece to a quiet and attentive audience following every twist and turn in the music. Wakeman’s solo follows the piece and is very similar to the other stops in Japan. It is based upon excerpts from The Six Wives Of Henry VIII with Handel’s Messiah and a boogie piano interlude thrown in for good measure, all in good fun.

“Roundabout” is used as the set closer as it has on the Close To The Edge tour. In the future it would serve as the first encore. Both of the encores, “Yours Is No Disgrace” and “Starship Trooper”, are thankfully present in their entirety. The first reaches almost fifteen minutes in length and is another classic version of the song. Many tapes run out during the second encore but thankfully all eleven minutes are recorded and this version is very loud and almost blows the roof off of the venue!

The final section is a masterpiece of dramatic construction and builds until the final extended cadence. Bird Of Prey is packaged with glossy paper inserts with several rare live and candid shots, including from a press conference, on the inserts. It is limited to three hundred copies.

Since tapes do not exist for the March 11th Nagoya and March 14th Kyoto concerts, this release, along with Heart Of The Sunrise (Sirene-044), Close To The East (Ayanami-255), and Yes In Japan (Sirene-071) gives us all the extant shows from Japan by the progressive rock fans behind the Sirene label. It may be too much to hope that tapes will surface for the other two shows so with these four releases we have an almost complete record of their entire tour in very good quality.

I wanted to share another Close To The Edge tour show so I looked thru my tapes and found this gem. While its not a complete show (some songs are missing and there is no crowd noise between songs) and the sound quality is about a B+, I chose it because of a few features which fans will find interesting:
a. during Siberian Khatru Steve Howe's pedal steel doesn't work so we get to hear his steel solo on regular guitar
b. also during Siberian Khatru Rick's mellotron sound for strings is not used during one section and we get to hear the choir sound instead; and later on he uses the organ instead of the mellotron until finally, I guess, it gets fixed during the end section.
c. the band loses the PA during I've Seen All Good People except for the bass which continues on like nothing ever happened; the PA comes back on and the the band picks up awkwardly and starts the song over.
d. Rick's solo spot pretty much mirrors the Yessongs version, but he adds Cans And Brahms in the middle

NOTE: there is a Highland boot of this show which I have not heard, but it claims to be the complete show. If someone has the complete show I would be much obliged if they would contact me. My tape version runs at 71 minutes.

After seeing Yes for the first time in October of 1972 I just couldn't get enough of the band. What I'm presenting here are the first 2 bootleg LPs I bought back in 1973. I have taken the LPs and cleaned them up and transferred them to CD then to these FLAC files. Both shows will fit on one CD, but you can do what you like.

1.06 Yours Is No Disgrace (7.55)

Lineup: Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, Steve Howe, Rick Wakeman, Bill Bruford

This was the 2nd bootleg LP I ever bought, but this version here is the best of 3 that I own of this same show, interestingly enough.
'On Tour' - mono, ok sound
'Live In Amsterdam' - slightly distorted
'The White Yes Album' - stereo (this is the version presented here)
All three versions present the same show with a few minor variances such as when the LP starts and ends. Some of the songs are edited, presumably because of vinyl space (shame) and all versions contain the same edits.

This is the first bootleg LP I ever bought and was titled 'Yes...Indeed'. I know of no known complete recording of this show and that's a shame as well as the recording was very good.
