By "popular" demand, here is some more "low Gen" YES recordings.

Sorry i had to comment on this one.
I think this is just the 8th show with Moraz on Keyboards.
It's one of my favorite YES shows.
It has complete live versions of both my favorite YES releases, CTTE & RELAYER.
It interesting to hear Moraz play the CTTE material particularly.
Hope you enjoy this one as much as i do.

This my way of giving back to all those who have shared and uploaded all their great YES recordings!

-----------------------------
Greensboro, NC 11/24/74: (audience tape)

I have no memory of who this tape came from, other than it was probably through an ad I saw in Goldmine or Discoveries or the like. You would send off an SASE and get a list back in the mail, then choose the shows you wanted. I don't remember ever paying money for them, other than covering tape and postage costs - I assume it was fans who were trading mostly and also sharing with the likes of me, who had nothing to trade. I was looking for Gates but was bummed when I heard how chopped up the beginning was. I honestly listened to it once and never went back to it - I hate incomplete/cut songs. Over time, I forgot I even had this tape and it sat for a long time without being played. I guess I preseved it and stored it well.

Maxell XLII 90 >Nakamichi CR-1A cassette deck> Apogee Rosetta A/D 44.1/16 bit UV22 (soft limit off)>digital input to Roland VS 1680 in Mastering mode (no file compression)

I did no EQ, limiting, processing, editing, etc.

The tape was recorded very hot. The distortion at times could be from my tape being recorded too hot or maybe from the master. But it's on the tape and didn't happen during the transfer.

It almost sounds mono to me, which I find strange. Also very sibilant at times.

There should be about 4db of headroom to work with and I didn't put any track markers in.

Track list:
Firebird
Sound Chaser
Close (cut near end)
To Be Over
Gates (a real mess at the beginning, missing a verse - a patch would be nice!)
And You And I
Ritual (beginning only, fades out)

There is no mention of the location in Jon's between song talking. There must have been a crowd issue: after Sound Chaser, he spends some time asking the people in the middle to move back to make more room for the people in front.

Yes played two radically different kinds of shows in Miami in 1974.  The second concert of the US Tales From Topographic Oceans tour was on February 8th at the baseball stadium.  The second, occurring early in the first Relayer tour, was on November 28th.  It seems to have been initially scheduled for the Sportatorium in Hollywood (which is listed on liner notes), but was actually played at the Jai Alai Fronton in Miami before a capacity crowd of 6,500.  Full Of Nightmarish documents the entire just-under-two-hours show.  The tape is good but a little bit distorted in the high end during certain points.  The taper paused between each track to preserve space cutting out almost all of Jon Anderson’s little speeches.  There are also cuts at 6:00 in “The Gates Of Delirium” and at 17:50 in “Ritual.”
The first hour of the show is dominated by the new album which was still three weeks away from release.  It is a testament to the strength of the new songs that the audience, at the very opening notes of “Sound Chaser,” are on their feet and into the music.  It helps that the sound man seems to have gotten the levels right at the beginning.  This is normally one of the difficult spots but on this night he nails the balance and the song is much more effective for it.
“Close To The Edge” is the first familiar track played and the audience react loudly to the opening notes.  This is a good version although Moraz loses his place in the latter part of the song on the Hammond organ.  The second epic of the night “The Gates Of Delirium” is a real highlight and one of the best of the early versions of the piece.  The title of this release is taken from Chris Welch’s description of this track in his book Close To The Edge:  The Story Of Yes where he writes:  “This was neurotic, disturbing music full of nightmarish clattering and howling that sounds like a soundtrack to an Eraserhead style movie.  During the final chorus Jon Anderson’s silvery vocals elevate the piece into something rather more pleasant as he sings and repeats the line ‘Our reason to be here.’”
The distortion of the tape actually enhances the insanity of the middle section and the transition into “Soon” takes an eternity.  It is the emphasis upon the dramatic tension that really works to theatrical effect in the piece and the audience, despite having never heard the song before, reward the band with a loud ovation.
Jon Anderson introduces “Ritual,” the final song of the set but there are problems with Steve Howe’s guitar lead and the delay makes the audience impatient.  The tape pauses the tape and picks it up again right after the band start.  Like all performances, they sing lines from “The Remembering” and “The Revealing Science Of God” before the first verse.  
Patrick Moraz goes nuts during the ritual of life section, playing previously unheard whooshes on the synthesizers over the heaviest Alan White drum solo imaginable.  His tone simply fills the venue and the people by the taper let out roars of approval.  The first encore is a rip-roaring, racing version of “Roundabout.”  Yes are on such a roll they play a second encore. 
“Siberian Khatru” has always been a starting number but on this tour, since it was essentially dropped, makes rare appearances as an encore.   It is an interesting version too with Moraz adding  colorful splashes of mellotron in the middle to augment the Hammond organ and replaces the harpsichord solo with his own spacey solo.  Howe, Squire and Anderson sound especially enthusiastic during the song and this turns out to be one of the most fun versions on tape.  The song’s inclusion means that Yes plays the Close To The Edge and Relayer in their entirety plus one song each from Topographic Oceans and FragileFull Of Nightmarish is a fascinating release on Highland and despite the tapes limitations is a fantastic title to have.

TheTooleMan edition, 2008

This recording is most notable for being the only capture of Yes playing "Siberian Khatru" on the 1974 Relayer tour. It's Patrick Moraz's first outing with the song, as far as I know, and he doesn't fuck it up too badly.

This torrent is a combination of two copies of the show from my collection. One is Highland's "Full of Nightmarish." The other copy is a set of SHN files of just the five tracks on disk one. The SHN files sound better than the two-disk audio set, which is recorded too loud and has a very dull sounding right channel.

Sound quality is definitely in the "OK" category, with a lot muddy bass. Most of the chatter by Jon was cut either during the taping or in the process of copying it for trading. I don't think any of the music is cut, though.

I didn't do any EQ work on the sound, but leveled out the volume between the left and right tracks and between the two sources so you can listen to the whole thing without destroying your speakers. So it's not what I'd call a "remaster," just a "tweaking."

Cha cha cha!

Here is another in my Crappy Masters series. I had a seat to this show in the nose-bleed section on the far right of the stage, an awful position. I opted to take my chances and find an empty seat at least in front of the stage, maybe on the first tier risers. Using my cheapo mono cassette recorder I recorded the whole show. The sound is about C quality, but the crowd noise is not even noticable; then again neither are the acoustics! As you will hear during the quiet moments of Soundchaser I got busted for sitting in someone else's seat and I try to worm my way out of it ( I had a ticket, but just not for that seat). I had to abandon the seat, but it was on the aisle so I sat in the aisle next to the seat after the usher left (what were those people thinking about arriving late for a Yes concert anyway?). The usher never came back, thank goodness.

The Remembering comes in the short five week tour of the US that began shortly after the sessions for Relayer ended and its release on December 14th. Fort Worth occurs just about a month into the tour and is a very good to excellent sounding tape recording. The taper unfortunately seems to have arrived late that night to the Convention center since the Firebird suite, “Sound Chaser” and the first ten minutes of “Close To The Edge” are missing. This is overall a solid early release on Highland with the only flaw being, after “The Gates Of Delirium” a snippet of Led Zeppelin concert is audible. It doesn’t interfere with the Yes concert but it is a strange mastering fault with occurs on some Highland titles (the same thing can be found on Genesis White Mountain Side).

This tour was a way for Yes to not only break in the new material live, but also to play live with new keyboardist Patrick Moraz. Not only was his style and musical taste fundamentally different than either Tony Kaye or Rick Wakeman, but Moraz’ used some very different keyboards. He got his equipment from its developers which were still at that time in prototype stage. The Vako Orchestron, for example, which was used for the string sounds throughout the album in general and which was used for the sound effects in the instrumental middle of “The Gates Of Delirium.” This was the instrument used to produce the whooping and sneezing sounds (”electric slinky”) which suggests the sounds of people being torched alive about midway through the track.

It would be Moraz’ interpretation, not only of the new songs but also of the older material that would determine their success as a live band. His influence can be heard on “Close To The Edge” on this recording where, while he duplicates much of Wakeman’s parts adds his own coloring throughout.

Jon Anderson addresses the audience afterwards, promoting the new album saying: “I’d like to thank you all for coming along tonight. Hope you have a good time. I’d like to play for you now, I’d like to play some new music to you from our new album which is called Relayer. I think it’s in the shops. This weekend it’s in the shops and the first song that we played is from the album that was called ‘Sound Chaser.’ And the song you’re going to hear now is also from the album. It’s called ‘To Be Over.’ I hope you like it.” This is the first song from the album to be dropped from the set which unfortunate since almost every live version of the piece sounds simply gorgeous. “The Gates Of Delirium” is the second epic played in the set and is again perfect and very dramatic in the recording.

Before “Ritual” Anderson says, “I hope you enjoyed the new music. I’d like to say thank you very much for coming along tonight. Here’s a song from Tales From Topographic Oceans. Like to play for you side four. ‘Ritual.’” The track is very long with references to sides one and two from the album. The drum solo sounds very heavy on this recording and Moraz’ Vako Orchestron is put to good use in the ritual of life section on the middle. The “Nouse Sommes Du Soleil” finale is a fitting end to the show and “Roundabout” is the only encore captured on the tape. Overall The Remembering is a very good release but, with more complete and better sounding tapes in circulation, is not essential.

My friend taped this (same guy who taped Memphis, Mar 10, 1974 show).
This is from the master tapes. There is a bootleg of this show called South of the Tulsa
(Highland). I have not heard the bootleg, but I'm willing to bet its this same show/source.
My buddy doesn't trade, but he lent me the tapes.
I have tweaked the sound some to make it a tad clearer.
The sound is slightly distorted in spots; its not the cleanest recording,
but because it has South Side of the Sky it is a rarity.
I believe my friend told me he was sitting in the nose bleed section.
This show has circulated around since the late 80's on tape amongst Yes traders so I guess
its not all that rare any more. In any case I had a request for it so
here it is from the master tapes.

Whenever Yes played a Northeast US tour date the response was overwhelming, and this Connecticut gig is no exception.
This is classic Yes, with many of the band’s cornerstone songs performed in this show, first heard 34 years ago. "Close To The Edge," "Soon,” "And You And I,” and "Roundabout” are clearly the highlights and are placed at key points during the show, around less well-known tracks, such as "The Gates of Delirium.”

Yes, one of the most successful of all the progressive rock bands to come out of the UK, is featured here in their 1974-1976 incarnation, with Patrick Moraz on keyboards during Rick Wakeman's "sabbatical." It was 1974 and the band was at its commercial peak with albums like Fragile and Close To The Edge dominating the charts both here and in Europe. As with their contemporaries ELP and King Crimson, Yes had taken the musicality of prog-rock and brought it to the masses. In retrospect, the prog movement of the ’70s was the fore-runner to the popular "jam band” movement of the late-’90s and early-’00s.
Vocalist Jon Anderson is in fine form and was probably at the peak of his vocal prowess when this performance was recorded for the King Biscuit Flower Hour in 1974.

This line-up of the band, which featured original members Anderson and bassist Chris Squire, as well as guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, and keyboardist Moraz remained intact until Wakeman returned to replace Moraz in 1976.
The Close To The Edge-era line-up reformed in the late-’90s and has toured on-and-off since then. They are currently planning a North America tour for summer 2008, which would have the distinction of celebrating the band’s 40th Anniversary.

No EQ'ing.

A 24-bit/96-KHz flac24 version of this recording is also available.

Dan Lampinski recorded over 100 concerts in the Providence/Boston area, mostly between 1974 and 1978. His earliest recordings were made with an internal microphone deck, and though they are somewhat lo-fi compared to his later work, some very great moments in rock history were captured for posterity. In late 1974 he bought a Sony TC-152SD tape recorder, a Sony ECM-99 stereo microphone, and began using Maxell cassettes. He was also fortunate enough to have a friend who provided excellent taping seats for many shows, resulting in high quality recordings. In 1977, he switched over to a Nakamichi 550 tape recorder, two Nakamichi CM-300 microphones, and continued using Maxell cassettes.

He recorded many of the major 70's bands: Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Queen, Blue Oyster Cult, Frank Zappa, Jethro Tull, ELP, Kiss, Black Sabbath, The Who, Al Stewart, Alice Cooper, Jeff Beck, Bruce Springsteen, Supertramp, Jean-Luc Ponty, Moody Blues, Neil Young, The Faces, Rush, Rick Wakeman, Kansas, as well as several "under the radar" acts.

Since Dan never traded copies of his recordings, they are all essentially uncirculated. Some copies were made for friends, but these releases are the first time most of these recordings have ever seen the light of day, and are direct from his master cassettes. No EQ'ing has been done to any of the transfers. Feel free to EQ, matrix, patch, etc and re-post if you like, just give Dan credit for the original recording.

Dan was very meticulous about taking good care of his tapes and is very pleased that these recordings will now circulate among the trading community. Please honour his kindness and generosity by sharing these recordings freely.

The transfers are available as 16bit/44.1KHz flac files suitable for CD burning, and also as 24bit/96KHz flac files for those who prefer the higher resolution.

Always remember - the more generous you are with your music, the more it comes back to you.

ORIGINAL [RAW] TORRENT NOTES:

"Once in a while, karma smiles and something really special just sort of falls in your lap. This is one of those moments. Carl was up in Foxboro, Mass to see John Wetton and The School Of Rock All-Stars, and being the friendly guy that he is, he started talking with the guy sitting next to him. Turns out they had more than a little common musical ground, starting with King Crimson and it worked rapidly downhill from there. Shockingly, the topic of tapes came up and it just so happens this guy taped a bunch of shows in the 1970s that he essentially kept to himself. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what happened next. This series of torrents represents the fruits of Carl's labour - multiple trips to Dan's house to pick up tapes, lovingly and carefully transfer the recordings and then prepare them for our collective listening pleasure. It is my honour to be able to seed these recordings and I hope that everyone who downloads them will get as much enjoyment out of them as we have. The master list of the shows Dan recorded is still under construction and we will circulate that as well as some photographic documentation of the project somewhere down the line. Please don't clog my inbox with requests for your favourite band(s) or a show you hope may exist after all these years.....just kick back, relax and let the surprises unfold.....

NOTES FROM LESTAT:

Many, many thanks to Mr. Lampinski, to djscomics and to Mr. Morstadt for their efforts in unearthing what may be the best quality AR of Yes from 1974 and bringing it to Dime.

Like everyone, I was floored when I heard this recording for the first time. Even raw it surpasses every other pre-1977 Yes AR on Dime I’m aware of for sound quality. Taper Dan’s achievement here is unique and speaks for itself.

Even the best raw AR masters made with the best, skill equipment, and media available nearly always have not just flaws but hidden strengths undetectable to most. This one makes a typical example, having some largely correctable weaknesses but more importantly a broad spectrum of detail nearly inaudible in its raw form.

When I upload original sources I make sure such things are dealt with in advance. What was possible with this recording has now been fully attained, and provides its own best illustration of why. It also generated this response from a participant in the remaster ‘beta test’, an integral part of the process -

"I just finished listening to the remastered samples over my main rig, and just did another comparison between the remastered and raw versions on my computer. As always, you have done very fine work on what was already an astounding audience capture for 1974: everything sounds considerably crisper and more defined, and you seem to have tamed a certain upper midrange harshness, making for a more pleasant listen overall. For me, a standout moment is Howe's solo in "Sound Chaser"-- while listening, I forgot for a moment that I was not right there in the hall. The degree of holographic spatial realism you helped bring out in this tape is extraordinary (and one of the qualities I most appreciate in your mastering). "Close to the Edge" was a joy as well, and your mastering helped bring out the amazing detail in Squire's bass accompaniment at the end of "I Get Up, I Get Down," which adds an element of drama to the climax not found on the studio version.

"Particularly with your careful mastering, this tape is a real holy grail for Yes collectors like myself, who count the 1974 Relayer tour as possibly the peak of Yes live performances. The only other
documents of that tour I've heard that even approach this are the Pre-FM version of the same show (which was oddly mixed, had a very harsh midrange, and was missing "Ritual"), and the (in)famous Baton Rouge recording. This release may very well sit at the very top of the heap now in terms of overall quality".

The raw master had a number of issues.

1] Pitch and tempo were both off [fast].

2] Low frequencies with poor definition or nearly absent - a common drawback of condenser microphones but Dan’s was top shelf and it got more than most. They still desperately needed ‘liberation’, as did frequencies in every other part of the spectrum except the very uppermost highs occurring prior to mid-Ritual.

3] Some quite noticeable midrange distortion occurs at different points in the raw upload, especially during Close to the Edge and Ritual. Most likely it’s in the master cassettes and a consequence of
age - even well-cared for Maxells don’t last forever - although it may also be a condenser mike issue.

4] A jolting change in sound properties occurs during Ritual, at about 16:45 and constant through Roundabout. It seems likely to have started with a tape flip and probably involves a bias or Dolby switch on the record deck, or possibly a tape manufacture defect. Whatever the cause, symptoms include a severe high frequency dropout, an increase in at least one type of distortion [‘swish’] and weirdly but on the upside better low frequency definition.

All of these mitigated well except the distortion, which can only be treated with signal-damaging compression and not very effectively. While now more detailed along with more desirable sound, it does not overwhelm by any means. The dynamic range transition in Ritual Roundabout is treated with slightly different EQ settings and less noticeable, with high frequency definition better matching the rest of
the recording.

The recording’s especially miraculous hidden tones in several frequencies, including the lows, are now much more apparent. As one example, different cymbal types can now be easily discerned where in the raw recording they’re nearly indistinguishable from each other despite the absolutely fantastic uppermost frequencies [which needed no work at all]. Other Yessounds, from nonmetal percussion to guitars to keyboards to voices, now have considerably more identity, presence, and detail in all their tones

All work was done at the 24/96 resolution, before downsampling. EQ work designed to reveal detail, as the audience heard and felt it. No attempts to alter band-crowd-venue sound balance. If crowd sound as real and detailed as band sound isn't desired, please pass this by and stick to soundboards or industry releases. No compression or noise reduction.

Up until the discovery of the Lampinksi tape, the only known audience recording of this show was the one I made with a mono recorder from the back of the Boston Garden. Once I had a copy of the FM broadcast, I copied the "Missing Ritual," the only song not included in the broadcast, to a reel-to-reel deck. That tape, along with the master tapes, was stored at a friend's house and lost for many years.

Over the years, I received many anxious requests from people wanting to hear the "Missing Ritual" no matter how bad it might be. Eventually, my friend dug out the reel. I digitized it and shared the raw transfer with everyone who had inquired about it.

I intended to combine Ritual with the FM broadcast to create the first-ever complete concert recording. So I asked every serious Yes trader I could find for the best source of the pro recording. I also
tried to find someone with expertise willing to remaster Ritual.

I eventually received 22 different sources and narrowed them down to a "short list" of the five best. I planned to determine the winner using a blind comparison test.

However, no one remastered Ritual. Even Shaun Toole (Tooleman), the best known Yes remastering expert turned it down. Once everyone had heard the recording, it was no longer the famous "Missing Ritual." It was just another audience tape from 1974. Everyone lost interest in the project, including myself. So it sat on the shelf until a few months ago.

What brought it back to life was Lestat's willingness to do the remaster. The sound quality turned out much better than I had hoped. We were planning to upload the project to Dime. But now that the
Lampinski recording has surfaced, the "Missing Ritual" project is obviously never going to see the light of day. The Lampinski is vastly superior to my audience recording and I consider it to be superior to the professional recording made for the FM broadcast.

Some of what I had written for the "Missing Ritual" project may still be of interest. So here's an edited version.

Yes concerts have always had a very special significance in my life and 12/11/74 was my first one. It was also one of the first concerts that I taped from the audience, not knowing that the performance was being professionally recorded for the King Biscuit Flower Hour, a nationally syndicated radio program of live concert performances.

The Relayer album was released on December 5, 1974 less than one week before the concert and roughly a month into the tour. No one in the audience knew the album very well, which was quite unfortunate. Like Tales From Topographic Oceans, the songs on Relayer are much too intense and complex to fully appreciate on the first listen.

Similarly, no one knew how the songs from the other Yes albums would sound with new band member Patrick Moraz on keyboards. I had been listening to Refugee, the album that he had recorded with Brian Davidson and Lee Jackson (formerly of The Nice) for several weeks and knew that Moraz had way too much talent and style of his own to simply fill in for Rick Wakeman.

Hearing the familiar Firebird Suite opening climax into Sound Chaser instead of the anticipated Siberian Khatru might have surprised some of the audience, but no one who was there could have possibly been disappointed with the tight but excellent performance. Make sure to read the concert page on Forgotten Yesterdays.

The original two-part broadcast, hosted by Bill Minkin, in "SQ Matrix" quadraphonic sound was aired only six weeks after the concert. It came as a complete surprise to those who had been there as nothing had been said about it being recorded for an FM broadcast.

SQ Matrix was one of several early matrix schemes from the quadraphonic era. The matrix concept was similar to today's surround sound technologies and SQ is considered by some to be the origin of
Dolby Pro Logic.

The broadcast included the entire Yes concert except for one song: Ritual. It also included the entire insipid opening set by Gryphon. That decision, to omit part of the Yes concert in favor of the entire
Gryphon set, has angered countless Yes fans for more than three decades, none more than myself.

The original broadcast and subsequent rebroadcasts have been used as the source of countless collector and commercial "pirate" bootleg cassettes, LPs, and CDs. I have collected images of 21 different pieces of cover art and I'm sure there have been many more. Some contain the full setlist (except Ritual of course) and some are partial. Some of these bootlegs claim to be from radio station (pre FM) tapes or LPs. Based on the lack of compression, it's possible that some of these bootlegs are actually pre-FM tapes.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS:

Many thanks to Yes, then and now

And thanks once more to Taper Dan, Carl and djscomics

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

If you like what you hear in this torrent, please help it - and all your favorite torrents - reach as many downloaders as could want it with regular PMs and torrent comments. After a torrent has been up
roughly a week, many will never see it. The search word "Yestorrent" seems to do a better job in Yes’ case, but even it misses some and generates false hits.

Please share freely but losslessly, and never, EVER even THINK of selling for any sum anywhere. Reseed or redistribute this recording in its complete and original form only. Should we become aware of an incomplete reseed or distribution, we will publicly discredit the party responsible.

On that note, be also vigilant against for-profit ‘boot factory’ ripoffs. We’ve seen this done with our work already. While flattering they’d covet it on the one hand, the dishonesty of it and idea of
anyone spending good money for what can be had freely are both infuriating. Last time it happened Gromek’s fabulous art was dumped in favor of the usual boot factory crap, and none of the lineage/process info provided here was included in the ripoff either. Truly criminal - intellectually as much as legally.

ORIGINAL [RAW] TORRENT NOTES:

"Once in a while, karma smiles and something really special just sort of falls in your lap. This is one of those moments. Carl was up in Foxboro, Mass to see John Wetton and The School Of Rock All-Stars, and being the friendly guy that he is, he started talking with the guy sitting next to him. Turns out they had more than a little common musical ground, starting with King Crimson and it worked rapidly downhill from there. Shockingly, the topic of tapes came up and it just so happens this guy taped a bunch of shows in the 1970s that he essentially kept to himself. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what happened next. This series of torrents represents the fruits of Carl's labour - multiple trips to Dan's house to pick up tapes, lovingly and carefully transfer the recordings and then prepare them for our collective listening pleasure. It is my honour to be able to seed these recordings and I hope that everyone who downloads them will get as much enjoyment out of them as we have. The master list of the shows Dan recorded is still under construction and we will circulate that as well as some photographic documentation of the project somewhere down the line. Please don't clog my inbox with requests for your favourite band(s) or a show you hope may exist after all these years.....just kick back, relax and let the surprises unfold.....

"Dan Lampinski recorded over 100 concerts in the Providence/Boston area, mostly between 1974 and 1978. His earliest recordings were made with an internal microphone deck, and though they are somewhat lo-fi compared to his later work, some very great moments in rock history were captured for posterity. In late 1974 he bought a Sony TC-152SD tape recorder, a Sony ECM-99 stereo microphone, and began using Maxell cassettes. He was also fortunate enough to have a friend who provided excellent taping seats for many shows, resulting in high quality recordings. In 1977, he switched over to a Nakamichi 550 tape recorder, two Nakamichi CM-300 microphones, and continued using Maxell cassettes.

"He recorded many of the major 70's bands: Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Queen, Blue Oyster Cult, Frank Zappa, Jethro Tull, ELP, Kiss, Black Sabbath, The Who, Al Stewart, Alice Cooper, Jeff Beck, Bruce
Springsteen, Supertramp, Jean-Luc Ponty, Moody Blues, Neil Young, The Faces, Rush, Rick Wakeman, Kansas, as well as several "under the radar" acts.

"Since Dan never traded copies of his recordings, they are all essentially uncirculated. Some copies were made for friends, but these releases are the first time most of these recordings have ever seen
the light of day, and are direct from his master cassettes. No EQ'ing has been done to any of the transfers. Feel free to EQ, matrix, patch, etc and re-post if you like, just give Dan credit for the original
recording.

"Dan was very meticulous about taking good care of his tapes and is very pleased that these recordings will now circulate among the trading community. Please honour his kindness and generosity by
sharing these recordings freely.

"The transfers are available as 16bit/44.1KHz flac files suitable for CD burning, and also as 24bit/96KHz flac files for those who prefer the higher resolution.

"Always remember - the more generous you are with your music, the more it comes back to you.

"Kev & Carl June 2009"

NOTES FROM LESTAT:

Many, many thanks to Mr. Lampinski, to djscomics and to Mr. Morstadt for their efforts in unearthing what may be the best quality AR of Yes from 1974 and bringing it to Dime.

Like everyone, I was floored when I heard this recording for the first time. Even raw it surpasses every other pre-1977 Yes AR on Dime I’m aware of for sound quality. Taper Dan’s achievement here is unique and speaks for itself.

Even the best raw AR masters made with the best, skill equipment, and media available nearly always have not just flaws but hidden strengths undetectable to most. This one makes a typical example, having some largely correctable weaknesses but more importantly a broad spectrum of detail nearly inaudible in its raw form.

When I upload original sources I make sure such things are dealt with in advance. What was possible with this recording has now been fully attained, and provides its own best illustration of why. It also generated this response from a participant in the remaster ‘beta test’, an integral part of the process -

"I just finished listening to the remastered samples over my main rig, and just did another comparison between the remastered and raw versions on my computer. As always, you have done very fine work on what was already an astounding audience capture for 1974: everything sounds considerably crisper and more defined, and you seem to have tamed a certain upper midrange harshness, making for a more pleasant listen overall. For me, a standout moment is Howe's solo in "Sound Chaser"-- while listening, I forgot for a moment that I was not right there in the hall. The degree of holographic spatial realism you helped bring out in this tape is extraordinary (and one of the qualities I most appreciate in your mastering). "Close to the Edge" was a joy as well, and your mastering helped bring out the amazing detail in Squire's bass accompaniment at the end of "I Get Up, I Get Down," which adds an element of drama to the climax not found on the studio version.

"Particularly with your careful mastering, this tape is a real holy grail for Yes collectors like myself, who count the 1974 Relayer tour as possibly the peak of Yes live performances. The only other
documents of that tour I've heard that even approach this are the Pre-FM version of the same show (which was oddly mixed, had a very harsh midrange, and was missing "Ritual"), and the (in)famous Baton Rouge recording. This release may very well sit at the very top of the heap now in terms of overall quality".

The raw master had a number of issues.

1] Pitch and tempo were both off [fast].

2] Low frequencies with poor definition or nearly absent - a common drawback of condenser microphones but Dan’s was top shelf and it got more than most. They still desperately needed ‘liberation’, as did frequencies in every other part of the spectrum except the very uppermost highs occurring prior to mid-Ritual.

3] Some quite noticeable midrange distortion occurs at different points in the raw upload, especially during Close to the Edge and Ritual. Most likely it’s in the master cassettes and a consequence of
age - even well-cared for Maxells don’t last forever - although it may also be a condenser mike issue.

4] A jolting change in sound properties occurs during Ritual, at about 16:45 and constant through Roundabout. It seems likely to have started with a tape flip and probably involves a bias or Dolby switch on the record deck, or possibly a tape manufacture defect. Whatever the cause, symptoms include a severe high frequency dropout, an increase in at least one type of distortion [‘swish’] and weirdly but on the upside better low frequency definition.

All of these mitigated well except the distortion, which can only be treated with signal-damaging compression and not very effectively. While now more detailed along with more desirable sound, it does not overwhelm by any means. The dynamic range transition in Ritual Roundabout is treated with slightly different EQ settings and less noticeable, with high frequency definition better matching the rest of
the recording.

The recording’s especially miraculous hidden tones in several frequencies, including the lows, are now much more apparent. As one example, different cymbal types can now be easily discerned where in the raw recording they’re nearly indistinguishable from each other despite the absolutely fantastic uppermost frequencies [which needed no work at all]. Other Yessounds, from nonmetal percussion to guitars to keyboards to voices, now have considerably more identity, presence, and detail in all their tones

All work was done at the 24/96 resolution, before downsampling. EQ work designed to reveal detail, as the audience heard and felt it. No attempts to alter band-crowd-venue sound balance. If crowd sound as real and detailed as band sound isn't desired, please pass this by and stick to soundboards or industry releases. No compression or noise reduction.

The King Biscuit Flower Hour - Yes
"The Gates of the Stellar Attraction at Boston Gardens on the King Biscuit Flower Hour"
Boston Gardens
Boston, MA
11-Dec-1974

Remastered by Shaun Toole, June 2003

Recordings of Yes at Boston Gardens broadcast on the King Biscuit
Flower Hour (KBFH) have been released as a commercial bootleg and in
various formats. This recording appears to have originated from a
pre-FM copy intended for broadcast in 1975. I am basing that belief on
the announcer's mention of "SQ Matrix Quadraphonic Sound." This is the
cleanest copy of these recordings that I have ever found. Remastering
was done with Sound Forge and other PC-based editing software. Tracks
have been re-ordered from the original version to follow the set list
of the original concert. "Ritual" has never been included in the KBFH
recordings. It may be lying in a vault somewhere, waiting to see the
light of day. Let's hope that day comes soon. soon!

Boston Garden
Boston, MA
1974-12-11

In honor of Jon Anderson's 64th birthday (October 25, 1944).

"Yes we'll still need him,
Yes we'll still feed him
When He's Sixty-Four."

(with apologies to Lennon & McCartney)

Lineage: King Biscuit Flour Hour pre-broadcast tape -> CD audio -> SHN -> TheTooleMan (Sony Vegas and Sound Forge) -> Sony DVD Architect -> YOU

This DVD makes history.

For the first time ever, you can hear this program faithfully reproduced in its original quadraphonic mix using the widely-accepted Dolby Digital 5.1 format.

The King Biscuit Flour Hour series of 1975 was presented in "compatible stereophonic and SQ-Matrix quadraphonic sound.” But few people owned receivers which would allow them to enjoy the quadraphonic audio experience. And since SQ never gained wide commercial acceptance, it was discontinued after a short while.

This SQ-encoded recording of Yes was decoded in June, 2008 by TheTooleMan after extensive research into various decoding techniques. It was then re-encoded in Dolby Digital 5.1 for playback on home theater systems. Since the SQ format does not include a center channel mix, the center channel is silent in the surround mix. Bass frequencies below 118 Hz were directed to the LFE (subwoofer) channel for the Dolby mix.

A lossless stereo LPCM version of the decoded front channel audio is also included.

The DVD will play like any NTSC DVD on your DVD player. It is authored to allow selection of either the Dolby Digital 5.1 quadraphonic audio or the LPCM stereo audio track. You may require special cables and other hardware to reveal the full quadraphonic effect. Note that SQ-encoded quadraphonic did not provide much separation between the front and rear channels, so panning between front and rear and isolation of instruments in the rear channels is not very dramatic.

The original Yes King Biscuit Flour Hour program included the opening set by Gryphon. That performance is not included on the DVD.

The sequence of the Yes setlist for the 1974 Relayer tour was altered by King Biscuit to better accommodate their commercial schedule. "Close to the Edge" was played before "To Be Over" during live shows, but in the broadcast the order of the two songs was reversed. The two tracks have been restored to their correct order on this DVD.

"Ritual" was also played live during the 1974 Relayer tour. It was performed on the night this show was recorded, but a King Biscuit recording has never been released to the public…

Yet.

This is a flawed tape that I've never been able to upgrade.

This is the 28th Relayer Tour performance.
Sounds like it was taped out in the cold, and there isn't too much intrusive audience, save for one or two nearby clappers.

The sound is not bad for a Stereo Audience Cassette recording, but the trouble here is the volume fluctuates throughout.
Whether it is the Quad system used, the deck malfunctioning, the tape folding, psychedelics, or some other problem, EVERYone I've ever found with this tape says it has the same problems. You can still listen to it, but it sure is annoying after a while.

I did ONCE try to repair all the volume changes, but I think I scrapped it and gave up before the end.

The tape flip in CTTE is just the taper adjusting the input and turning it all the way down to zero and back up again, so not much goes missing there. The next tape flip is before Gates and cuts off some of the intro. The beginning of AYAI is very loud, be careful! The final tape flip cuts Ritual in half.

Here's hoping you can find a better tape, or at least can enjoy this one!

The ambiance part was cut off and now it starts just at the beginning of 'Firebird Suite'. To make volume 1 fit on a CD-ROM I also had to cut off another 5 seconds of the applause at end of 'The Clap'.

30th Anniversary Remaster

Mike Millard recorded both the Los Angeles Forum (1975-06-21) and Long Beach Yes shows of 1975. For audio quality, this is the better of the two. The audio is much better to the two 1974 Tales shows, probably due to an upgrade of gear. You might think this was a soundboard recording, if you didn't know better. As for the performance, Yes is hot, but there are some crackles and Jon's voice is kind of ragged, as if the smog in Southern California was getting to him.

Art is not included with the torrent but I'm sure there is some floating around, and hopefully some friends will post theirs.

In 1975, Yes were:
Jon Anderson
Chris Squire
Steve Howe
Alan White
Patrick Moraz

Yes - Seattle Center Coliseum - June 28, 1975 (2cd)

1st gen tape (possibly)>cd-r>Bias Peak Pro 5.2.1>XACT>flac

The 1st gen is not entirely clear, as this show was stated (by it`s original seeder)
to be from July 23, 1976, it is ofcourse the June 28, 1975 show, so it could also
very well be that the 1st gen info is incorrect, but i can`t be certain of this.
The original seeder was told in a trade that it was 1st gen!

This was seeded before, either on Dime (almost sure it was), TDD or Zomb.
Wherever it was, i have no idea who seeded it, and the name was not stated in the included info file.
So whoever it was and wherever it was, thank you very much for a great show!
All credit goes out to you (and the taper too)!

I only had this burned to cd-r (later i backed-up everything on dvd-r in it`s originally torrented form),
so this i ripped from these cd-r`s (the eac info is included), just so you know about it.

Because of my rip, the following is included:
EAC logs, MD5 Checksums (for both discs), Cover Art and an Mp3 check/test log included.
All were done and made using Traders Little Helper.
These discs were ripped to WAVE using Exact Audio Copy and converted to FLAC using TLH.

Lineup:
Jon Anderson (Vocals)
Steve Howe (Guitars)
Patrick Moraz (Keyboards)
Chris Squire (Bass)
Alan White (Drums)

2.04 The Clap (3.41)
2.05 And You And I (10.11)

Total playing time (in WinAmp) is: 1 hour 32 minutes 43 seconds.

Tracks played but missing from this recording are: Ritual, Roundabout & Sweet Dreams.
(If someone has these or even one of these, then please be so kind and share them with us,
then we would have a complete or almost complete show to treasure).

Thanks again to the original seeder and taper, whoever you are, you cannot be thanked enough!

ps:
I was told (today) by fellow Dime member Markie that is was posted on Dime on March 16, 2007 by Mesquite.
I`m not entirely sure if i got it there, but if so, then thanks much Mesquite!
Markie also sent me some cover art done by Nibelungen66, so they are also included.

Special Thanks to the taper and theklopeks for the referral.

Notes from the taper: "I recorded these with a hand-held mono recorder (remember it was the 70's). It was a Radio Shack Mini-set compact cassette recorder with a omni-directional mic (fairly standard). I worked at Radio Shack at the time and would borrow a recorder (the most expensive model) for the evening. This recorder was likely manufactured for Radio Shack by either Funai or Sanyo. I would have to sneak the recorder in under my coat past security. Each concert was more than one tape so I decided to transfer them onto one reel to reel... good thing since I lost the cassette tapes."

Notes from the taper: "I recorded these with a hand-held mono recorder (remember it was the 70's). It was a Radio Shack Mini-set compact cassette recorder with a omni-directional mic (fairly standard). I worked at Radio Shack at the time and would borrow a recorder (the most expensive model) for the evening. This recorder was likely manufactured for Radio Shack by either Funai or Sanyo. I would have to sneak the recorder in under my coat past security. Each concert was more than one tape so I decided to transfer them onto one reel to reel... good thing since I lost the cassette tapes."

The sound quality is very good for most of the show, but the performance is outstanding. The taper moves around during the first half of the first song, hence the sound is not that clear. You'll pick up on the tape swaps, but nothing is really lost. Also, I have overlapped CD1 and CD2 a bit so as to not lose anything there as well.

Enjoy!

comments:
A decent hockey arena audience recording from the Relayer tour. This was a fine show, especially the Relayer songs and the full Ritual. Sweet Dreams was nice to hear too, I didn't think it was the best version of it, but there aren't many of that with Moraz.

Probably recorded on a Sony 152 (mikes unknown), I'd guess 2nd gen. cassette source for this,
it's better than a "wish you were there" production, but not a "you are there" production. A fair amount of crowd in here, but it's not overwhelming. the audience was considerately enthusiastic,
not alot of screamer types, recorded rather far from the stage, and this seems to be a full show.
They didn't play "sweet dreams" alot with Moraz, but this is not the London 75 concert, which
has an officially released version of that track. this all comes from one audience source of one concert and there is some talk in French in part of this show (many Canadians speak it as their main language, including in Montreal), both from the band and the crowd, which there isn't in London show. (that was a BBC FM broadcast) This is also a distinctly different performance than London concert which anyone who has heard both (as I have) would quickly notice.

I was hoping to post the London 75 show until I found out there's a released track in it (at least Sweet Dreams, there may be others too), so I decided to pass that one by completely until I could find out more definitively if any more of that show is available officially.
I could not find any indication that any of this show is officially available in any form. This may very well not be the best source recording of this concert out there (it's a big world), but it's a nice concert I haven't seen posted yet so here it is.

Do not sell this recording (that will make yes say no).
Share freely, losslessly and gaplessly.

Previously uncirculated alternate recording
24 bit 48 kHz transfer

Lineage: Master cassettes -> Xitel Inport -> Sound Forge -> FLAC

This appears to be the master tape of an alternate and previously uncirculated recording of Yes at The Spectrum on July 22, 1975. It could be a first-generation copy, but more than likely it is the original tape.

According to the owner of the tape, the recording was made from seats on the floor of The Spectrum. The more popular and well-circulated tape was made from farther back and higher up in the venue.

This tape has fair to good audio quality, but there are some other serious technical problems with it, and it is missing most of The Gates of Delirium. The track picks up near the beginning of "Soon." At the front of side 2 of tape 1 is a bit of garbled audio prior to the first intelligible tack. This leads me to believe there was a problem with the recorder during the show. At the end of side 1 of tape 1 are more speed problems.

Rather than try to remaster the tape and bring out whatever quality it contains, I decided to simply correct the speed of the tape and create files based on the tracks on the tape. I transferred the files in 24 bit, 48 kHz format to preserve their quality. Feel free to use the tape for any projects and other non-profit uses.

Thanks to abcdefgoldfish for the opportunity to present this to the Yes trading community.

Dan Lampinski recorded over 100 concerts in the Providence/Boston area, mostly between 1974 and 1978. His earliest recordings were made with an internal microphone deck, and though they are somewhat lo-fi compared to his later work, some very great moments in rock history were captured for posterity. In late 1974 he bought a Sony TC-152SD tape recorder, a Sony ECM-99 stereo microphone, and began using Maxell cassettes. He was also fortunate enough to have a friend who provided excellent taping seats for many shows, resulting in high quality recordings. In 1977, he switched over to a Nakamichi 550 tape recorder, two Nakamichi CM-300 microphones, and continued using Maxell cassettes.

He recorded many of the major 70's bands: Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Queen, Blue Oyster Cult, Frank Zappa, Jethro Tull, ELP, Kiss, Black Sabbath, The Who, Al Stewart, Alice Cooper, Jeff Beck, Bruce Springsteen, Supertramp, Jean-Luc Ponty, Moody Blues, Neil Young, The Faces, Rush, Rick Wakeman, Kansas, as well as several "under the radar" acts.

Since Dan never traded copies of his recordings, they are all essentially uncirculated. Some copies were made for friends, but these releases are the first time most of these recordings have ever seen the light of day, and are direct from his master cassettes. No EQ'ing has been done to any of the transfers. Feel free to EQ, matrix, patch, etc and re-post if you like, just give Dan credit for the original recording.

Dan was very meticulous about taking good care of his tapes and is very pleased that these recordings will now circulate among the trading community. Please honour his kindness and generosity by sharing these recordings freely.

The transfers are available as 16bit/44.1KHz flac files suitable for CD burning, and also as 24bit/96KHz flac files for those who prefer the higher resolution.

Always remember - the more generous you are with your music, the more it comes back to you.

Here is a 3-part interview with Steve Howe and Chris Squire. These were recorded in November of 1975 and broadcast on WMMR in March of 1976. Ed Sciaky conducts the interviews. Steve's segment, in particular, is quite interesting. I think the last segment is incomplete, but can't really tell. All officially released music tracks have been removed as usual. One interesting note is that during Steve's segment Ed Sciaky pulls out an earlier interview segment with Jon Anderson and Steve performing parts of what they called, at the time, 'High Vibrations'. Of course it is Awaken, but its interesting to hear the very early stages on the song from 1975.
