Ok all you Yes fans. Here it is: the Relayer lineup of Yes rehearsing before the 1976 tour and it includes the Remembering. I got this tape in the arly 80's and it was labeled Millersville, PA. Since then I've heard that its really Lititz, PA and even that its Roanoke, VA. Right now I'm sticking with Millersville as that was what my 20 year old tape reads. I wish that a better source would surface and/or that someone could defnitively say where the venue actually was and the exact date. Forgotten Yesterdays says Roanoke, VA, 5-27-1976 (day before their 1st show), but I question that.

Can't tell you the generation and this recording suffers from several things: some warbling, some distortion, and the echoing venue itself. I have cleaned this up sound-wise as best that I could. I removed some of the hollow sound, did some noise reduction, did some eq-ing, speed corrected, and smoothed out the spots where the taper turned on/off the recorder. I've kept the CDs in sync with the tape flip so nothing is missing. Some would argue that I could have cut out some dead space and fit this on 1 CD, but being a completist I couldn't do it. Feel free to redo it if you want. When putting in track markers I made tracks where the band wasn't playing any song, but the time was at least a minute in length.

Audience recording

Poor quality, for the hard of listening only, see samples below.

This is my 1st upload, no idea what the speed will be but I'll stay connected for as long as it takes.

Often mentioned in torrent comments for 1976 Yes shows, here are the 1976 tour rehearsals featuring the fabled Moraz Remembering. I'm told this was on DIME a while ago, but before I joined so this is not a re-vine.

In addition to a copy of the bootleg Highland CD "Solo Rehearsals", this torrent includes a lower generation but unknown source (and still pretty rough) copy of The Remembering, and I'm Down which was not on the bootleg. The lower Gen copy has more inaudible chat & etc before the song, and the bootleg has more inaudible chat afterwards, so I pasted them together.
Don't panic, the torrent also includes the raw versions of both copies.

This rehearsal omits the 1st 30 seconds from the standard Tales version of The Remembering (or maybe the recording is cut), and has a new more powerful, longer ending. In between, there are a lot of re-arrangements including a single longer 'Relayer' section, longer ‘ocean’ sections but only two of them, different instrumentation for the first 'out in the city', and some re-shuffling of the lyrics (but that could just be Jon being in the moment).

Original, inaccurate & unintentionally hilarious Highland artwork is included.

Track 6a, 6b & 7 from an unknown lower Gen source, bonus tracks from a Roanoke 1976-05-28 trade.

========================
extras
7 I’m Down 2:56 - not on the "Solo Rehearsals" CD
6a The Remembering (mix) 19:07 - lower G with balance fixed & ending chat added
6b The Remembering 18:46 - the lower Gen copy, balance is way to the Left

* If you're making a CDR from this you can use any one of the track 6's and the disc will play normally.
Track 6, and just for the hell of it here is the Highland dis - membering.
Track 6a, if you're not a purist & want something that sounds more matched to the rest of the tracks, this is the lower Gen with the balance fixed & ending chat (from Highland copy) added on.
Track 6b is the raw lower Gen copy of The Remembering, the balance is way to the Left.

========================

Source info:
track 1 - 6:
Highland HL089#Y17 silver CD > unknown transfer in 2000 > CDR > EAC secure > GoldWave > TLC (FLAC 8) > DIME > you
track 6a 6b, 7:
unknown transfer in 2004 > CDR > EAC secure > GoldWave > TLC (FLAC 8) > DIME > you

Overall the Highland CD runs a bit too fast but I didn't try to fix it. There is no EQ, noise reduction or other processing except using
GoldWave, I reset most track endpoints. As well, for track 6a using the lower Gen copy, I delayed the Right channel by .00025 seconds to fix the balance, & pasted 25.7 seconds of unintelligible chat & etc from the end of the Highland copy, at the end.

When the Forgotten Yesterdays 'Rarities List' still included rehearsals & etc, this recording was listed as "Audience 100 min" and also included Sweet Dreams, anyone...?? Failing that, a secure digital copy of the Highland CD would probably give us better sounding copies of tracks 1-5 and would certainly be welcome.

And of course,

Recorded in Roanoke, VA, May 28, 1976. First concert of the "solos" tour, and the setlist included a lot of material from the 5 solo albums. It changed a lot as the tour progressed, too.

1.01 Apocalypse (1.06)
1.02 Siberian Khatru (9.58)

2.05 Bonus Track: The Gates Of Delirium (Nashville, 1976-06-01) (21.31)

Bonus tracks:
4) The Gates of Delirium, recorded in Nashville, TN June 1, 1976. Solid performance and a great recording - a really good audience tape. The Nashville tape is incomplete, and sort of an orphan. Since the Roanoke show did not include Gates, I added it (per JB's suggestion, and he supplied the tapes.)

5) The Remembering, recorded in rehearsal at Millersville, PA, sometime in May 1976. Seems they hadn't forgotten this Tale after all. Forgotten... Remembering... get it? Never mind.

All tracks feature Patrick Moraz on keyboards and have benefited from liberal doses of noise reduction and equalization.

Long Distance Runaround/Moraz Solo

Recording Quality:

I'd give it a B-. It's reasonably crisp but there's a substantial amount of distortion.

Performance Quality:

About average for the beginning of the Solo Albums tour, except for Sweet Dreams which is jammed out and quite unusual. It was the fifth show of the tour and they had already dropped most of the solo material played the first two nights in Roanoke and Hampton, VA: Ram, Break Away From It All, Beginnings, One Way Rag, Alan White Solo, and Cachaca (Baiao).

Personal Notes:

If anyone has the complete concert, please share it!

In the Yes trading circles there exists a complete recording of this show, but the quality is just fair at best. This version was recorded by my buddy and he lent me the tapes to make the CD. The quality is probably a B or B-.The interview was recorded in his car on the way to the show (he lived in Memphis at the time) with the mic placed near the car speakers. I was asked to seed this as the 'other' version was not a good in quality. Sadly, if I remember correctly, my buddy told me he had recorder problems and therefore the rest of the show is missing. Too bad as it stops just before the rare solo spots.

Since there is some interest in the Patrick Moraz era of Yes I thought I'd dust off some old tapes and see what I could come up with that hasn't seen the light of day in awhile. This show was a bit of a milestone for Yes as it was their biggest audience ever with an estimated 100,000-150,000 people. Peter Frampton and Gary Wright opened the show and a huge fireworks display was also on tap. It was, afterall, the Bicentennial year in the US.

The recording here is just an 'ok' recording which I tweaked some. I have a suspicion the show was taped on one 90 minute cassette, but when I bought this bootleg way back in the early 80's it came to me as two tapes. There are some obvious tape flips and the show ends in the middle of Ritual.

At the request of some "Vintage Yes" Here is a good Solos tour show. Again, one of the later dates where most of the solo material was dropped in favour of more Yes-friendly choices. This is also the legendary gig, where Yes played to their biggest audience to date in the massive JFK Stadium. The batteries die about 26 minutes into Ritual. It has listenable sound, likely 2nd or 3rd gen. This tour Yes incorperated a wonderful laser show with the music.. would have loved to have seen ritual.

Our tapers seem to know what to expect, since one of them announces "All Good People" before Jon. And someone mentions "tomorrow," so they were probably planning to see the band again while the tour is in the area.

No remastering or alteration of any kind was done to the source recording. Hope it brings back good memories for some of the 18,000 people who were there, the night before the big show at Roosevelt Stadium, Jersey City.

Enjoy... and sit down!

Notes from the Re-master:
Since the source for this concert is a radio broadcast, the sound quality is generally good to begin with. The actual source was a CD version of the master tapes obtained from the broadcasting radio station WNEW. We would like to thank Shaun Toole for providing his remastered source to us for this project.

Viable music signal was present up to 18,000 Hz. This is quite rare for progressive rock concerts available from the 1970’s and makes this recording quite unique. A radio transmission or microphone / patch cord buzz occurred in the left channel off and on throughout the show and needed to be corrected. Fortunately, the buzz was specifically identified in the frequency spectrum and was surgically attacked. This approach produced a minimal effect on the remainder of the music. Pops and clicks occurred frequently and were manually removed. Radio announcer volume was out of proportion to the music in some segments and needed to be adjusted. Finally, only a slight amount of noise reduction was needed during quite segments.

*From the PRRP website:
All remastered works are made with Cool Edit Audio Processing Software. When the source is a CD, The music is ripped using Exact Audio Copy software. 6-Head Hi-Fi VCR is used when the source is video tape. An Onkyo cassette deck is used for cassette tapes and monster cables connect the sources to the Sound Blaster Audigy computer sound card. This allows 24 bit A/D conversion. The system itself is a Dell Pentium IV running at 2.8GHz.

The 1976 Summer Tour began May 28, 1976 in Roanoke, Virginia. The Roosevelt stadium concert
was number 16 in a tour that would include 54 shows. The band members had recently finished solo
projects and had reconvened to begin their biggest American concert tour to date. At the time there was still an enormous interest in the material from their most recent album Relayer. Gates of Delirium and Soundchaser, both from that album, were played in Jersey City that night.
From one that was there:
“We were there in 6 inches of mud in ‘76 at Roosevelt stadium in New Jersey for RELAYER”.

–Notes from the Edge
“Gates of Delirium is a war song, a battle scene, but it’s not to explain war or denounce it, really. It’s an emotional description with the slight feeling at the end of ‘do we have to go through this forever?’ There’s a prelude, a change, a victory tune, and peace at the end, with hope for the future….”

–Jon Anderson
“Sound Chaser is like this madman from hell…an indescribable mixture of Patrick’s jazzy keyboards and my weird sort of flamenco electric, which I’m sure has never been done before and will probably never be done again!” –Steve Howe

Strangely enough, “To Be Over”, the last of the three songs from “Relayer” had been dropped from the set list for reasons unknown, perhaps to allow the band to include a few more of the old stage favorites like “Siberian Khatru” and “Heart of the Sunrise”.

“The concert was originally broadcast on WNEW from New York. According to former WNEW-FM DJ Richard Neer in his book, 'FM', there was no mixing of the show being done by the radio station engineers; the feed going out over the air was what the guy doing Yes' sound sent out. (This was because the manager of WNEW at the time was too cheap to pay Neer and a sound engineer companion of his the few hundred bucks extra they would have charged to do an on-the-fly broadcast mix). Hence the rather interesting variations in sound quality as the show progressed.” –Forgotten Yesterdays.com

Another enthusiastic fan recalled: “It was 100 degrees that day. When we finally got to the stadium, there was about a battalion of police off to one side. The line of fans was about 10 abreast and went around the stadium. The police had bullhorns and were telling people "no glass inside the stadium". When we got inside, there was a hot air balloon tethered over the stage, with the cover FROM TALES FROM TOPOGRAPHIC OCEANS on it!
The opening was the Poussette Dart band. Between the opening and Yes, there were fireworks. One of the rocket stands fell over during launch and a rocket shot across the infield and blew up under a car! Finally, true dark fell around 9:00 PM and Yes began to play. During the battle scenes in "Gates of Delirium", the laser (electric green, dark blue) was shot into the audience in random, staccato bursts. Later, during "Soon", the laser fanned out and spun over the audience, who craned up hands over their heads to touch the light. -Notes From The Edge.

It is with great pleasure that we now bring you this remaster of a legendary performance by a legendary band. Enjoy this great 1976 moment with Yes.

Notes: 2006-03-01 A+ preFM recording from the short-lived Moraz era. The performance is also top-notch. In terms of sound quality this is one of the best out there. It crackles a little bit but is otherwise quite perfect. Also sounds great on headphones (many cool stereo fx). The radio stations wanted to save a couple bucks so they just broadcast a straight stereo soundboard patch. So this prefm source is really a raw SBD (mastered by SMT). Artwork included. FLACs tagged using foobar2000 v0.8.3. Checksums generated using TLH v0.9.2b55.

This was misdated as the 16th on the front cover artwork & in the text file but the correct date June 17, 1976, as it appears on the spine of the artwork. Also the setlist here matches with the page on forgottenyesterdays.com (link below). I updated the two front coverarts with the correct date. I included the original yesswap covers as well as the doctored "Xanadu Records" covers that came with this when I got it at STG.

When I last saw this seeded there was quite a stir over if/when this was a hoarded show. I can't remember how it turned out, that thread went on forever. -Five

Notes: One of the most legendary Yes concerts ever performed, this was hoarded by the YesSwap elite and has now been liberated. A Master recording was unearthed, and some fine engineering by Shaun Toole really brighten this up. If you don't have this, or have one of the old copies that circulated, download it NOW! You'll definitely be glad you did.

Credits: Artwork was "altered" to show my distain with YesSwap, and I forget who originally did it. Doesn't really matter, it looks just fine the way it is. I didn't make labels for this one yet, but you can use the front cover to make one.

Disk 2 Track 10, "I'm Down," was released on the YesYears box set, so it has been omitted from this torrent. You can insert your copy of "I'm Down" from YesYears, if you have it. (The audio quality of this version of "I'm Down" is better than on YesYears. Sorry, I can't share it with you.)

Art is included in the torrent. I created the art from photos of Roosevelt Stadium which were sent to me by the son of a man who worked in the Offices of the City of Jersey City, New Jersey.

Recording Strengths:

1976 was a very strange year for ARs, or Yes ARs at least. Before this one I'd analyzed more than 2 dozen and the best of them only offered an upper strata of "collectors only" sound quality. The numbers began to improve dramatically in 1977 and beyond, but even more strangely I hadn't run across a single 1976 Yes AR of same quality as some going back to 1972. When one saintly soul sent me his unedited master copy of the enclosed Boston concert I had higher hopes for it as he'd already shared the absolute best 1970s Yes ARs I ever dreamed could exist. Despite tape age and a possible 1st generation, when I first played it I was floored. Here was a [thankfully unedited] original 1976 Yes AR sound capture completely and utterly superior to any I'd heard before. It had unbelievable detail across the entire aural spectrum, even though it obviously would require extensive work to reveal completely in most samplings of playback systems. Yes 18 June 1976 appears often in trader networks and in them may or may not be the same source, but their ratings are rarely high. Now thanks to Dime you can get what I'm prepared to bet one of the best if not THE best 1976 Yes ARs from the comfort of your own keyboard, bypassing completely the often fickle, frustrating world of traders and snailmail

Nearly a year later it would take as much disc space as the concert itself to detail what the clearly superior source still needed to sound its best. One thing I've learned about remastering older analog ARs - the best ones are much harder to get right because they already have so much detail so vulnerable to screwing up yet usually requiring some degree of liberation from their often deteriorating tape trappings. A 'brief' description of goals and results should suffice. Another difference in my approach is hard copy "Beta" testing among a select and trusted group prior to general distribution.

High frequencies in all their many layers were already in the raw master, but needed extensive 'polishing' to sound more completely as the audience heard them. My approach to EQ work involves many hours of very small, compounded passes of settings designed to avoid distortion and any change in the frequencies' natural sound or balance. A cymbal, guitar, voice or a Moog tone should sound like one, not like something else. This is especially true in Yes' case, whose concert sound was as detailed as their studio sound. All too often such things become nearly unrecognizable in remastered ARs no matter what their source quality. In B76 we can distinguish each sound from every other, and it even comes closer than most 1970s Yes ARs to delivering undistorted detail from things like crash cymbals we most often hear in ARs made after 1990."Thicker" crash cymbal sounds are actually very distinguishable in this AR now, and they keep ringing just as they would right in front of us. Other high frequency sounds enjoy similar detail.

Tape hiss - the strongest evidence for a first generation source - did become quite fierce after high frequency work completed. In fact, together with a miscalculation in the EQ work itself hiss actually forced a scratch restart of the whole project at one point [it was really worth it:]. Even in the complete new remaster hiss volume exceeded that of the very highs so painstakingly revealed. Thankfully it was possible to reduce hiss to tolerable levels using some experimental noise reduction settings without ANY perceptible damage to signal and without ANY perceptible digital artifact insertion where signal occurs. In the isolated samples used for nr profiling hiss was largely replaced by artifact, but it has not been detected anywhere in the desired recording. To achieve this kind of side effect-free noise reduction work the settings had to be extremely subtle, thus more than 500 passes of them were ultimately needed.

Midrange and bass frequencies. All had to be treated equally with highs to avoid a 'mixed' AR and preserve its original sound spectrum balance. Bass guitars and various low end percussion like kick drums and toms should be nearly as thunderous and three dimensional to the downloader as they were to the 1976 Boston audience, without peaking or overwhelming any other part of the spectrum. Midrange sounds like electric piano and Steve Howe's hollow-bodied Gibson guitars can be among the most difficult to reveal of any part of an AR's spectrum, but here we can detect every layer of the guitars' 'voices' down to the subtlest properties of their wood. Even audience noise/chatter is rendered so realistic we could almost fool ourselves into thinking we're there, and the audience' enthusiasm for what they were seeing and hearing becomes all the more infectuous. One member of the 'Beta' test group even thought applause was digital clipping at first hearing.

The whole purpose of having ARs lies in their far more realistic capture of what audiences heard and felt than soundboard-sourced official releases or even unedited soundboard boots possibly can. Even bottom shelf ARs do this to some degree. In B76 you have one straight from the top shelf and a remaster strictly adhering to a philosophy of 'excavation' and preservation of its original sound capture, not mixing. I'm hopeful the result speaks for itself in your playback systems - it should come as close to transporting the listener back in time and space right to the middle of Yes' 1976 Boston audience as anything could short of a real time machine. As much as anything we have Yes themselves to thank for their concert sound system standards. In the '70s they were truly state of the art, and their quality has not been surpassed to this very 21st century day. This AR and its remaster should deliver very realistic Yes concert sound at any volume in most playback systems.

Yes' performance - top notch as ever. All the more impressive given the conditions they had to perform in that night, detailed by one attendee's testimony below. Boston's New England climate is similar to that of Europe, but it can still get plenty hot there in summer. Hot it was on 18 June 1976, and the venue's ventilation system I'm told had broken down. Yes nonetheless soldiered through it thanks to their consummate professionalism and technical skill level so rare among 'rock' bands. It wasn't just skill though - I'm a serious Yes freak due to their imagination and creative energy as much as anything. Both attributes were at the fore in Boston that night. It may not have been their best night of the tour and Moraz' playing at least does seem to have a certain 'rawness'about it no doubt due to the uncomfortable venue conditions, but it was certainly a Yes performance to remember.

Weirdnesses:

Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 had and still have some very interesting sound property differences. Vol. 1 had more bass but less high end going in. Vol. 2 at the start had poorer low frequency distribution but much brighter highs. Part of the year spent remastering went to matching the two for more continuity, again with a mind to not altering the overall spectrum balance of either. They're close enough together now, but Vol. 2 still has slightly brighter high end and Vol. 1 slightly punchier bass. Working hypotheses - A] one is original master transfer and the other first generation, B] They're different ARs altogether with different tapers, c] single taper may have moved from his original position relative to stage. If and as I learn more I'll share it with interested Dime membership.

Weaknesses:

ARs all have them, and despite its overall superior nature so does B76. Some are irreversible. Among them in B76' case counts a certain degree of high frequency oscillation. One of the last year's remastering challenges has been getting the most out of what was good without making oscillation worse. It's most audible in very high frequency sounds like percussive metals, and slightly more noticeable in Vol. 1. Hypotheses: tape wear/ageing in masters, single generation master tapes and/or ageing/wearing in them, or [least likely] the original sound capture. Other weaknesses include some dropout but it's miraculously infrequent for such an old AR. In Vol. 2 certain midrange percussion may not be quite as defined as in Vol. 1 due to the as-yet unidentified differences in source files.

Tape hiss remains noticeable despite hard nr work. Its volume is now well below that of highs it had been obscuring at one time, but it's still there. A few final attempts to get more of it out without damaging desired sound were unsuccessful - they both attacked signal and inserted artifact over signal. Hopefully some new technology I don't have yet will effect further success later on. If it does I'll be reuploading it forthwith. For now I had to go with the option of giving everyone an undiluted sound capture, and remaining hiss seems quite tolerable. Vol. 2 has slightly stronger hiss - there were no isolated hiss samples long enough in it to dehiss its material as effectively.

Hum appeared in Vol. 2 after low frequencies treated to match venue levels and Vol. 1's better original low frequency capture. I was able to get rid of most of it using a setting in Ray Gun Pro 3.0, but a trace remains. It's only noticeable in a few short, quiet passages thankfully.

Miscellaneous sound quality issues include a bit of sibilance in Vol. 1 at high playback volume

This AR now so closely resembles the real thing there could be some problems in some playback systems. My own office desktop setup among them, but it's basically crap so I don't count it. One very high end factory automobile system among the "Beta" test group apparently rendered high frequencies overwhelming and one last low frequency EQ pass was created to mitigate it. If anyone else has this experience please alert me at once. A second upload treated with Ozone is planned in case it presents a problem anywhere.

Fireworks obnoxiousness from audience. One attendee from what I can determine, but he's enough. I didn't excise these moments because they're part of the historic event. Nonetheless the s.o.b. was in front row and throwing his live M80s and other ordinance on stage near the band's mikes so PA would pick them up. Even at low playback volume it could force a change of shorts. My apologies for not deleting these moments, but as part of the history and after some debate I decided to leave them in place. It was a rarity at Yes concerts, so in a sense actually fascinating. It's also important to note Yes themselves never sunk to pyrotechnic depths like like so many schlock rock acts then and now.

So there you have it, dear fellow Dimers. I think this upload will really make quite a few days, despite its inevitable shortcomings.They in turn are miraculously few given the format and forum.

If anyone has unedited equitable or superior 1976 Yes ARs, please upload them to Dime at once. History will thank you!

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM MY SOURCE, who also provided the enclosed photo files.
Most importantly let us all thank him for making this whole thing possible:

"This concert took place the night after the famous FM broadcast from Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City. Like the weather in Boston, the performance was hot, sweaty, and intense.

Having been built in 1928, the old Boston Garden had no air conditioning. The ventilation was poor at the best of times and apparently had completely broken down that night. The air was steamy and thick with smoke.

The uncomfortable conditions, however, provided an unexpected benefit. The band changed costumes several times, allowing the audience to several concerts worth of their touring wardrobe.

Loud explosions (probably M-80s) interrupted the show at several points. This was a fairly common occurrence at Boston concerts at that time. Security must have been quite lax. Unlike Frank Zappa, who threatened to end his show after the next explosion, Yes simply took it in stride.

The photos included in this torrent were my first attempt at hand-holding a 300mm telephoto lens from the audience. Although only a few images are worth sharing, they capture a little of what the Crab Nebula stage was like."

Emotional Content
            Although no one knew it at the time, 1976 was to be a pivotal year in the career of the band Yes. The massive world tour to promote the
“Relayer” album had seen the band perform 89 shows all over the world between November 8th, 1974 and August 23rd, 1975. At the end of it, all band
members were understandably tired and in much need of rest. In an effort to get away from the Yes mold for a little while, it was decided that the band
would take a short break and that each musician would record a solo album. All five solo albums were released, to mixed reviews we might add, in the
first months of 1976. By then, all five band members were ready to regroup and be Yes again. With no new Yes album to promote, the band nevertheless
elected to go out on tour again before going back to the studio to record the follow-up to “Relayer”. Armed with a new set list, a striking new stage
(designed by Martyn Dean) and amazing laser effects to top it all off, Yes began a short, yet memorable new tour. Avid Yes fans will doubtless remember
that PRRP once released a remaster of the June 17th Jersey City concert, the only known radio broadcast from what every one has come to know as the
‘Solo Albums’ tour. The concert which we now bring you was performed two days later, June 19th, 1976, in Hartford Connecticut. Long time Yes fan Barry
Rogoff was there that night, and only his own words, we think, can truly convey the feeling of what happened that night, with all its magnificence and
horror. These memories are already available at the ‘forgottenyesterdays.com’ website. By kind permission of the author, we offer them here as well.
Once you’ve read them, you will understand why we feel that this particular Yes performance was so unique in the band’s long history…..
            The outdoor Yes concert at Colt Park in Hartford, Conn. on June 19, 1976, was at the same time, the best and the worst concert experience of my
life. It was the first time that I actually experienced the sort of Yes magic that you can hear on Yessongs. It was also the first time in my life that real
violence happened right in front of me.
            I had been to the concert the night before at Boston Garden. Like the weather, the performance was hot, sweaty, and intense, but not magical.
The band changed costumes so many times that the audience got to see their entire tour wardrobe. The night before that was the well-known FM
broadcast from Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City.
            All of the Yes concerts I had been to up to that point were good to great, but none had been magical. Each time, I expected to hear something
that would truly blow me away, like the version of The Fish on Yessongs, but it had never happened. I was starting to wonder if it ever would.
            I had two tickets to the show in Hartford the next night. The friend who had been planning to go with me copped out at the last moment so I
dragged along one of my photo staff members instead. I took a 35mm SLR and a few lenses in a bag, along with a little Sony TC-110A tape deck
(I hadn't yet acquired a Nakamichi) and a small tripod.
            Colt Park was a huge, fenced-in field with the stage at one end and lighting towers in front of it. We got there in the afternoon, in time to get a
good center-stage position for the Pousette-Dart Band set. Although the weather was cool with a misty drizzle on and off, the atmosphere was like
Woodstock. People were sitting on blankets as far as you could see in any direction. The three huge Martyn Dean snake heads* loomed over the stage,
in anticipation of the concert yet to begin.
* The "snake heads" were actually called the "Crab Nebula" stage, according to Roger Dean's book "Magnetic Storm. It was designed by his brother
Martyn.
            Even before the Pousette-Dart Band began, a few people started to climb up the light towers, to get a better, if somewhat shaky, view of the
stage. That's when I took the black and white photos that you see here.
            The towers had virtually no protective fencing around them. They were, for all intents and purposes, enormous jungle gyms. An announcer
pleaded with the crowd not to climb the towers because they weren't designed to hold that much weight, but he was ignored. More and more people
climbed up. Eventually, several husky security guards, who looked like bikers to me, managed to get everyone down without much trouble.
            When Yes began, it was dark and the drizzle had become continuous. I knew immediately that this show was going to be different from the
others. There was a spark to Siberian Khatru that I'd never heard before. The Yes magic that I had been anticipating for so long finally arrived in Sound
Chaser. Steve's manic guitar solo ripped apart the night sky. I was in awe. I had never heard Yes so "on" before.
            However, people were again climbing the light towers, this time in greater numbers than before. Back came the security force and up they went.
Most of the climbers got down without any trouble but six or seven refused until the security guards began beating them with police-style flashlights. One
last fat guy simply wouldn't get down. I'll never forget the image of his silhouette clinging desperately to that light tower while a security guard smacked
him on the head, over and over again, while Yes was playing so incredibly well. The fat guy finally slumped to the ground, unconscious, and was carried
off.
            The solos were magical. Patrick's solo was inspired and contained lots of familiar Story of I material. Jon's harp solo in particular was more
beautiful than I had ever imagined it could be. Even now, listening to the tape confirms what a great performance it really was.
            But as the show went on, the area we had staked out in front of the stage got more and more packed. Everyone was standing by then. I had a
camera bag over my shoulder and was holding up a lightweight tripod with a microphone taped to it. My photo staffer was shooting slides.
            When Ritual ended, I noticed some gang types circling around me and eyeing my camera bag. They looked just like sharks circling their prey.
Expecting the encores to be Roundabout and I'm Down, like the night before, I made the painful decision to shut down and leave. As we worked our
way to the exit at the back of the field, I was even more bummed to hear Yes playing Starship Trooper. But there was no going back. In retrospect, it was
the right decision. Had I stayed, I'm sure I would have been mugged.
            The news report in the Hartford Courant the next day included a photo taken from the embankment at the back of the field during the
Pousette-Dart Band set. It shows a sea of heads facing the stage. It's the other images from that concert that were burned into my memory: the idyllic,
Woodstock-like afternoon followed by the incredible dichotomy of brutal violence happening directly in front of a magical Yes performance.
            To this day, I wonder what happened to the guy who was beaten repeatedly with a flashlight until knocked unconscious. He might have been
one blow away from a fatal cerebral hemorrhage. Had that happened, I would have testified in court and Colt Park would have taken its place in
history beside Altamont as an example of how a rock concert can go terribly wrong.
            Before Colt Park, I held the naive belief that the ambiance of a Yes concert could somehow infuse the audience with positive energy, the way a
Grateful Dead concert does. I left Colt Park knowing that to be untrue. The world holds great beauty and magic, along with frightening ugliness. Most of
us live our lives seeking out beauty and magic, but finding it at a rock concert, even a Yes concert, doesn't protect us from ugliness. We have to do that
for ourselves…….
            As you can see, this particular Yes performance was worthy of notice for more than one reason. Was the band ever aware, or even made aware,
of what happened that night? That we will never know, but from a member of the audience’s point of view, especially one who was so close to where
the sad event took place, it is evident that such a happening would forever remain etched in one’s memory.            Apart from the strange
circumstances which we’ve just described, this was, for Yes at least, just another show in yet another successful tour. The tour itself, however, would mark
a very significant turn in the band’s career. This would be the last time that fans would see this particular Yes line-up in action. Shortly after the last
concert of the tour, the band adjourned to Switzerland, keyboardist Patrick Moraz’s native country, to start work on the follow-up to “Relayer”. Not long
after, frictions began to grow between Moraz and the other band members, at which time Patrick was more or less thrown out of the band. Rich
Wakeman, who had left Yes in a rather stormy way after the “Topographic Oceans” tour in 1974, was called in as a session player to replace Moraz. The
result was pure magic. Rich was asked to re-join the band permanently as they went on to record one of their most beautifully crafted works to date, the
magnificent “Going For The One” album.
            Because of the strength of the new record and Rick’s return to the fold, which was met with immediate wild enthusiasm by Yes fans the world
over; people tend to forget about Patrick Moraz’s great contribution to Yes history. To many, “Relayer” still stands as one of Yes’s finest albums, as well it
should, and Patrick can be very proud of what he did during the short time that he spent with the band. All three songs contained on “Relayer” are
considered Yes classics, and would be stricken from the set list for years to come, much to many fans’ dismay. It would take some 24 years before fans
could see and hear Yes play ‘The Gates Of Delirium’ in its entirety again. Sadly, even if snippets of ‘Sound Chaser’ and ‘To Be Over’ have been heard in
Squire’s bass solo or Howe’s acoustic guitar set, the songs have not been played live in their original form since the curtain fell on the 1976 tour. So it is
with great pride that we bring you this very rare recording from a very special era in the history of Yes. Even if the sound is far from perfect and the show is
incomplete for reasons explained above, we hope that the performance itself will plow you away as it did Barry, as it did us when we first heard it.

PRRP Staff

Notes from the Re-Master
            The master tape for this show was digitized and sent to PRRP as data WAV files. The show is incomplete –as listed above- but no significant gaps
occurred. On first listen, it is clear that the sound is a bit distant. This could only be corrected partially given the nature of distant sound. Tape noise was
also an issue and needed reduction using multiple techniques. Other sources of noise such as claps, yells and microphone bumps were minimized as
much as possible. Tonality was adjusted after frequency analysis revealed an imbalance. Some clicks and crackle required manual removal. Dynamics
which are often dampened by a distant recording site were readjusted and partially restored. Finally, a consistent speed error was found and corrected.
Disc 2 material also had a Right channel drop that required repair over a 2 minute segment and a different speed correction factor.

By request here is another oldie, but a goodie. I got this in a tape trade back in the early '80s. Typical very good audience recording with one glaring problem: the songs on the tapes were in the wrong order. I reconstructed the correct order when I did the conversion to CD and made some tweaks to the sound for clarity and bass response. This flucuates between a B+ and A- recording as you will see. There is a bad spot at the beginning of the Harp solo where the mics seemed to short out (only lasts a second though).

Yes’ “solo” tour in 1976 is one of their greatest tours and the July 22nd, 1976 Vancouver tape is one of the most atmospheric, dynamic and potent documents to emerge.  A first generation copy is now in circulation, although Highland use a higher generation for Solo Tour ’76.  There is an emphasis upon the higher frequencies but the bass is still audible and very effective on “Sound Chaser,” “Gates Of Delirium” and “Heart Of The Sunrise” especially.  There are several cuts on the tape, notably cuts that surround “Clap” and two during the track at 3:33 and 3:59, at 15:03 in “Gates Of Delirium,” flutter about 1:40 in Moraz’ solo, and “Roundabout” cuts out after three and a half minutes.
The biggest problem is that Highland got their hands on a defective copy of the tape where Steve Howe’s solo spot “Clap” is moved from being after Moraz’ solo to before “Gates Of Delirium.”  This can charitably called a mistake, but the label, especially at the point in their run when this was released, should have spotted the error and placed the track in its proper sequence.  This ruins what is otherwise a solid release.
Vancouver were treated to several legendary gigs in the early to mid seventies and this must rank among them.  1976 were Yes at one of their artistic and certainly commercial peaks and they play with that kind of certainty.  The show begins with the “apocalypse” bombast from “And You And I” leading into the other Close To The Edge track played that night “Siberian Khatru.”  “Sound Chaser” works much better as an opener but is pushed back on these dates to be played second.
“I’ve Seen All Good People” is for “you all and the beautiful mountains and you beautiful people” and is a wonderful, restful moment before one of the most aggressive, chaotic and schizophrenic “Gates Of Delirium.”  Moraz adds considerable presence to the piece with additional off the wall jazzy melodies during the carnage.
Afterwards Yes play the acoustic/solo section of the show.  Yes never before had a proper acoustic set and wouldn’t do it again for twenty-eight years.  And on previous tours the solos were scattered throughout the show but this year they are grouped together along with an acoustic set.  “Long Distance Runaround” in the new arrangement segues into Moraz’s solo which in turn leads into Steve Howe playing “Clap” with a “Wings Of Gold” interlude.  Anderson ends the segment with a harp solo, playing “Dance Of Ranyart” from his solo LP Olias Of Sun Hollow.

“Heart Of The Sunrise” is introduced as “a song we did five and half years ago here in Vancouver one time” and was a new addition to the set.  The final piece of the main set is a half hour long version of “Ritual.”  The ritual of life section in the middle is expanded to include not only bass and drum solos, but Moraz adds very nasty, ugly demonic sounds to the cacophony suggesting the evil side of life in addition to the sunny.  The only encore on the tape is three and a half minutes of “Roundabout.”  Yes were also playing “Starship Trooper” and / or “I’m Down” during this time too but with the tape running out it’s impossible to determine if they were played in Vancouver too.  Overall Solo Tour ’76 could have been a classic Highland release but their failiure to place “Clap” back to its proper sequence really sinks it and a revisiting of this tape would be much welcomed.

TheTooleMan's 2009 Upgrade Edition

Source: very low generation audience recording -> TheTooleMan's Tools -> FLAC

Recently, I listened to my 2003-2004 remaster of this show and decided to scrap it. It did not do justice to the recording. So I went back to the best version of the tape and started over. This time, the results are much better.

Guess I've learned something in the past 5 years!

The 2009 Edition is much more natural-sounding than the previous version. It also addresses a problem in the transfer of the best tape, which was carried over to the 2003-2004 remaster. Digital errors in the transfer can be found near the end of "The Gates of Delirium" and extend into "Long Distance Runaround." For the new edition, I replaced that part of the recording with the same material taken from the second-best copy I have, which is nearly identical in quality. You should not be able to detect the transition between the two copies of the recording.

The master recording picked up noise from handling the microphone a couple of times. There are also a few annoying spots of clapping, whistling, and arguing. The tape had a couple of gaps, and part of the introduction of "Soon" is missing, as well as the first verse. "Heart of the Sunrise" was placed before "Gates" in the CD copy of the tape; this was probably done to fit the music onto a two-hour cassette, which was used for the CD copy. I smoothed out the cuts, closed the gaps, and filtered the rest of the distractions to reduce their impact. I would say that more than 95% of the recording is excellent, and not much was required on my part to bring out the best of it.

Art is included with this torrent. It does not reflect the three tracks of Jon introducing songs. Since the spoken introductions run between about 50 seconds to nearly two minutes, I decided they should be separated from the music. I don't remember who created the art, but it's good and I thank them again for it. Also, thanks to gr8bigboy for the best copy of the tape, and to whoever else gave me the others copies, too.

This recording captures Yes nearing the end of their 1976 tour. The band was still in high spirits and projecting strong energy. Their performance is well-honed but not rote. Overall this is a gem of a recording and worth a new listening session.

Yes played three shows at the Cobo Hall in Detroit in August, 1976. These occur in the final week which also turns out to be one of the final shows with Patrick Moraz. Professionally recorded by the band, the two epics “Gates Of Delirium” and “Ritual” appear on the 1980 live compilation Yesshows. In 2005 the opening of the show, “Apocalypse,” “Siberian Khatru,” and “Sound Chaser” appear in the three disc set The Word Is Live.

The audience recording is very good and close to excellent sounding with a small amount of fuzz surrounding the music. There are also numerous small cuts scattered throughout the show including one 1:44 into “I’ve Seen All Good People,” at 13:24 in “Gates Of Delirium” (right at the beginning of the “victory” section and is the second most painful cut in the history of Yes bootlegs), and cuts after “Clap,” Jon’s harp solo, “Heart Of The Sunrise” and between the introductions and “Ritual.” This tape was used for a silver release called Just Another Night In Detroit (Suck My Disc! 001/002) in similar sound quality.

This is one of the all time classic Yes concerts. One of the reviews on Forgotten Yesterdays remembers: “When we got to Cobo Hall there were probably as many cops there as there were Yes fans… it was a sea of blue uniforms… we saw all the microphones and realized they would be recording the show, and so, throughout the quiet periods, I let out a powerful whistle (again, my apologies to fellow fans)… the lasers were phenomenal, a total surprise… the stage was cool, freaky, far out… the snake heads moved up and down, depending on who was soloing and who was idle — stage lights blared from underneath them, I can see it now, almost 25 years later… but most of all, the music was so beautiful and bountiful and pure and artistic and like nothing i’d ever heard… Jon’s voice was angelic and Steve’s guitar was like an intricate and always beautiful maze… Chris was bouncing and flowing, as I’d later discover was his usual style… Alan and Patrick filled it out perfectly… I’d found my new favorite band.”

Yes dropped the Firebird Suite taped introduction and instead play the “Apocalypse” section to “And You And I” as a prelude to “Siberian Khatru.” The Moraz contribution to this song is very strange since he doesn’t bother duplicating Wakeman’s harpsichord solo but rather plays a cocktail piano theme followed by a riff from “Sound Chaser.”

The opening song from Relayer is played second and Moraz misses a cue after the first “cha-cha-cha” part and waits for a few measures to pick it up again. Afterwards Anderson says to the very noisy crowd: “Thank you very much. Is this Detroit? This is for you. Detroit city, oh so pretty.” After a great version of “I’ve Seen All Good People” Anderson gives an interesting introduction to “Gates Of Delirium” saying, “The next thing we’d like to do, a song we put together about two years ago. It’s like a book: you open up the pages and the words hopefully paint pictures. You wandered down a long gray pathway. To enter through the gates of delirium.”

What follows is one of the best versions augmented by the loud whistles from the audience. The loud one heard when Anderson sings “Listen! Should we fight forever?” has attained mythological status, ranking along with the whistle heard during “Stairway To Heaven” on The Song Remains The Same soundtrack (and which people duplicated at every New York performance of the song after the release of the film).

The laid back and solo section of the show follows with the new acoustic arrangement of “Long Distance Runaround” which segues into Moraz’s solo. Steve Howe plays a bit of “On Wings Of Gold” before playing “Clap,” and Anderson’s harp solo sounds very dreamy on this tape.

Before the final song of the set Anderson gives a long thank you, which is also preserved on the official live album: “Thank you. Thank you. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank some people who helped us put on the show, the Clair Brothers Sound System. We have some marvelous people over here. Sean and Neil, who’ve helped us with the sound. And then the red, blue, green, orange, and purple corner. We have the people who put on what you see, the colors, the lights, lasers. Michael Tate and Adam Wildi. That’s some very very fine people. Oh! Some very people fine people who actually put the whole thing together, they’re collectively known as the best road crew in the business back here. Yeah! Don’t put that funk in my face. C’mon. Here’s a song which we did for ‘Topographic Oceans’. It’s getting like a soul show now. This thing called ‘Ritual’. Last, last but not least, we gotta thank you all very much for coming this evening and for making it all happen.”

“Ritual” is almost thirty minutes long and is notable for Chris Squire’s massive bass solo and the Moraz-lead mechanized chaos in the “ritual of life” section. The only known encore is “Roundabout,” and it isn’t known if they played “I’m Down” afterwards.

It is a shame the other two nights in Detroit were not recorded by either the band or the audience because the Detroit shows for Yes in the seventies were always events. Even though much of this show has been officially released, this is a good title to have to hear the entire concert.

Alternate Yesshows is packaged in a double slimline jewel case with a photograph of the crab nebula stage (before the show) on the back.

Here is a wonderful snapshot of YES in their prime, featuring the band in 1976, from first-generation tape. This is a very fine show, EX-sound quality. The taper did also the 1977 Detroit show and used great equipment, as the results show. Detroit concerts from the 1970s (and the city's great audiences) are always special, so here's a Detroit Special for all Yes fans to enjoy.

These are the remaining Detroit tracks that were NOT INCLUDED on the official releases "Yes Shows" and "The Word is Live." Here are the rest of the songs from this superb 1976 concert. The band obviously thought this was a hot show, because they have released half of it during the past 30 years. The remaining tracks included here have never been officially released.
Excellent, sharp recording!

Recording Gear: Advent dynamic microphones > Sony TC-153SD cassette recorder

JEMS Transfer: master cassettes > Nakamichi 670ZX (azimuth adjusted) > Wavelab 24/96 .wav capture > R8Brain resample (16/44) > Audacity (Normalize/split) > TLH FLAC8

Artwork by Nibelungen66 included.

While we remain deeply saddened by Jared's passing, JEMS' mission of sharing our recordings continues just as he would have wanted.

Jared transferred his own master tapes of this '76 show sometime in the last 12-18 months. The files were on one of several hard drives he gave to me a couple weeks before his passing. His fine recording of this show has been well circulated for decades, but this torrent marks the first ever direct transfer of the master tapes and should be an upgrade to any circulating versions. Samples provided.

To continue dissemination of the JEMS Archive requires friends and we're grateful to Zombiwoof for his help providing post-production support for this release.
