notes:

Those familliar with the Montreux studio sessions will understand
the editing work which has gone into this project. The film includes
a multitude of studio takes of varying lengths but probably averaging
about 1 minute each - some considerably less, some rather more.
These are fascinating, yet it can be quite frustrating when a take
finishes and a lengthy discussion, a splice, or some other scene
follows before the music resumes at a different point in the song

and/or different stage in a song's evolution.

Having found a 1 hour video with an exceptional stereo soundtrack
a good 12 or so years ago, I couldn't resist trying out the digital
editing functions on my new minidisc machine. Augmenting the
soundtrack with my old 120 min video, of lesser quality, I compiled
everything down into some semblance of order.

The result resembles sizeable chunks of total songs. Bear in mind
that there are many sections missing making it impossible to truly
produce a complete song: to be even this complete meant chopping and
changing between what were obviously different recording sessions,
culled from completely different sections of each video and combining
patches between the two source videos.

Digging out the minidisc today, I find myself amazed that it does

actually sound halfway coherent and indeed quite listenable.

The Tooleman asked me to help fill in some gaps in his quest to post all the Yes - Going For The One tour shows in honor of that album's 30th anniversary. Here is Yes rehearsing for the tour. I got this in a trade some time ago so the lineage is unknown. Its probably at least a 1st gen, more probably a second. The taper was in the back as the band sounds a tad distant. Not a bad recording, though, and I have tweaked it some to bring out the vocals and some highs without ading too much already-present hiss, and speed-corrected.

1977

Lineage: audience tape recording (unknown gear) -> Maxell XLII C-90 -> Sound Forge -> FLAC

This recording is more complete than the Highland CD version, which was seeded on Dimeadozen not long ago. Highland probably decided to maximize profits by cutting costs and restricting the material to a single CD. Some run-throughs of Colours of the Rainbow which were not on the Highland CD are included here.

Great little story behind this one: Zombiwoof got this tape from someone who claimed to have been the janitor working at the Lititz facility during the time Yes was hanging out in the Pennsylvania countryside, rehearsing for their soon-to-start 1977 world tour. The janitor claims he got more than 16 hours of tapes of the rehearsals from the garbage can! Zombiwoof has gone back to see if he can find this person and the other 14.5 hours. Keep your fingers crossed, but don't hold your breath... except for the 30-year-old garbage smell!

Overall quality of this recording is better than Highland's CD, which was probably taken from a higher generation copy of the source. Bass distortion is still evident in loud passages, and the automatic volume control kicks in at a few strange places, like the bells in Colours of the Rainbow. I tracked the recording in the order found on the cassette.

The tape was in good shape when I made the digital transfer, using my less-than-perfect cassette deck and a Xitel Inport connection. The 24 bit/48 khz transfer was equalized to cut hiss and remove a nasty hum in the first part of Disk 2. Side one of the tape ran a little slow, and the pitch has been corrected. Those pops and clicks when the tape was stopped and restarted have been removed. Otherwise, this is pretty much the unaltered transfer of the recording, recoded to 16 bit/44.1 kHz for CD compatibility.

Personally, I think the two sides of the tape may be reversed. Listen to disk two first, which ends with a rough version of And You And I, then go to the run-through on disk one, which is more refined. Yes plays Parallels better on disk one, and it has a more "finished" ending, which might mean it's the second run-through, too. Of course, the entire tape could be in no particular order of performance, so set your player on "shuffle" and have at it!

Audience recording, remastered 9/2007 by TheTooleMan

Lineage: tape (unknown gear, unknown generation) -> Highland release “Listen in Time” (Highland HL114/15#Y21) -> EAC -> FLAC -> Sound Forge (remaster) -> FLAC

The performance is most noteworthy as the second live show by this Yes line-up since 1974, and the second of three small town run-throughs before taking it to the “big time” in Philadelphia and New York City.

This is not a very good recording to begin with, but it has been improved some by balancing the levels of the left and right channels, repairing clipping, and cutting a hum from the bottom end of the audio. The pitch was also a little high, and has been corrected.

Check out the odd placement of a few tracks – “And You And I” comes before the two quiet pieces from GFTO, rather than afterward; the title song of the new album is played next-to-last during the encore, and Steve Howe’s solo spot is placed mid-set.

There are also some interesting entries from people who attended this show at http://forgottenyesterdays.com/date.asp?s=5&tname=8&tdate=1259&navb=10. Apparently Wakeman nearly fell flat on his face during his big part in “Close to the Edge.”

Audience recording, fair quality.

16-bit 44.1 kHz transfer by TheTooleMan, June 2013. Pitch corrected by TheTooleMan, , but no EQ or other editing was done after the transfer from the TDK normal bias cassettes.

This is a first-generation audience recording. This recording is not documented in Forgotten-Yesterdays.com as of this writing, and has apparently never circulated before. No other recording of this show is known to exist.

There are patches at the end of Wondrous Stories and Awaken, probably filling in for a tape flip. The source of the patches is unknown. Fades were added on a few tracks, and there are a few instances where the recording was paused briefly during the taping of the show.

The show gets off to a rough start with Wakeman's organ inaudible at the beginning of Parallels.

Enjoy this rarity. It's not for everyone, but hard-core Yes fans, especially ones in Philadelphia, will dig it.

Forgotten-Yesterdays.com shows the track order reversed (http://forgotten-yesterdays.com/dates.asp?qtourid=8&qdateid=1261). The recording of Roundabout suffers from bad tracking during the dub from the master tape. Distortion was worse in the right channel, so I copied the left channel over the right.

Once I posted Dale's tape of this concert, LostBrook contacted me and shared this recording. The quality is very good, much better than the recording of the full concert. Unfortunately, LostBrook let someone borrow the cassette containing the majority of the concert and never got the tape back.

This tape starts with the last notes of Awaken, followed by applause while the band leaves the stage and returns.

I equalized the recording and tracked it. Enjoy!

Here is another in the series of Going For The One shows that the Tooleman asked me to provide. I had these tapes for about 25 years and so I dug them out and..oh boy, what a mess! The sound is ok, the bass was a little overwhelming in spots for the mics, the volume fluctuated in both channels, there are muffled spots, speed was off, there was a hollowness to the sound, Close To The Edge was split on tape sides and fades out/in during the organ solo. You name it, the tapes had it. I cleaned it up as best I could, but my guess is, at the very least, a 2nd gen; probably higher than that. If anyone has an upgrade, please put it up. At this early stage of the tour there was no Tour Song. There is a little instrumental at the beginning of GFTO, but that's about it.

Yes : The Lostbrook Tape Series - Volume 40

On our second and final night in Philadelphia, John, Jody, and I once again visited the scalpers outside the Spectrum to upgrade our seats. I don’t recall where my friends ended
up, but I traded my ticket and $15 for a third row center seat. The previous night, I was distraught when Tape 1 ran out 10 seconds before the end of “Awaken” - little did I know then that one day I would let someone borrow that tape and it would vanish forever!
Fortunately, I still have this tape as a souvenir of my Philadelphia experience. I also learned how to capture “Awaken” without interruption. This tape is for you Philadelphia – except for those Flyers fans that surrounded my car in the Spectrum parking lot after a playoff loss to my NY Rangers.

Yes : The Lostbrook Tape Series - Volume 1

It was the opening night of Yes’ three-night-stand at Madison Square Garden, and the crowd was ready. Rick Wakeman was back, and two weeks before the concert, the band had released Going for the One. I had already traveled to see Yes in Philadelphia on August 2 and 3 with two of my friends, and was now back on home ground, every bit as excited as if I hadn’t seen them yet. I had perfect seats – third row, between Anderson and Howe. I had friends all over the arena, and my Sanyo tape deck was ready for action. It had already produced two nice tapes from Philadelphia, and I knew how to time the tape-flips. The set list was more than we could have asked for. The older songs were celebrations, and the new material was stunning, especially Turn of the Century and Awaken. The only distracting chatter was during Close to the Edge, when we squeezed an extra person in our row. When you’re 19 and a pretty girl asks to share your seat, it’s hard to say no. It sure annoyed the photographer behind us though! My only friend to appear on this tape is Laurie. For her assistance with the tapes that night, and for her friendship those crazy years, I dedicate this tape to her, wherever she may be.

Tapers Story:

I first became enchanted by live performances after talking my way into the taping of
Dick Cavett’s Woodstock Show on August 18, 1969 at WABC studios in New York. This was
quite an accomplishment for an eleven-year-old without a ticket. My first major concert
was The Rolling Stones at Madison Square Garden on July 25, 1972. I was so impressed with
the enormity of that event that I jumped at the chance to acquire some of the vinyl bootlegs from the Exiles on Main Street tour. These recordings surely planted a seed in my mind, but unfortunately, I waited over 25 concerts before attempting my first recording in late 1975. Over the next ten years, I recorded approximately 125 concerts in the New York City area. In 1985, I moved to Virginia and recorded sporadically, accumulating a few dozen shows in the Washington DC area over the next 15 years.

My motive for taping has always been selfish. I simply wanted to enjoy the performances over and over again. I didn’t realize that I was recording both musical and personal history or that I was witnessing the high-water mark of progressive music. I thought it would last forever, but in the back of my mind, I must have known that I had something special. With one or two exceptions that I later regretted, I refused to trade tapes. Very few friends were ever given copies. I have never considered selling them – I have too much respect for the artists. I protected my tapes for decades, never knowing what to do with them as they sat dormant on a shelf. In 2010, I found the time to make digital transfers of my tapes and rediscovered the amazing moments I had recorded. I also found an answer: I needed to get these tapes to my friends that were with me, whose history I had also captured, and to others who would appreciate this collection.

My equipment was low-tech but yielded surprisingly good results. Almost all of my recordings prior to 1989 were made with the built-in condenser mic on a Sanyo desktop cassette recorder (model unknown). When the unit began to fail in 1977, I replaced it with what I thought was a better recorder, but the tapes were distorted. I quickly purchased a new Sanyo that was identical to my first and never again attempted an upgrade. In 1989, I bought a smaller, Walkman-type unit – a Panasonic RX-SR29, which performed nicely with its condenser mic. I was never interested in producing soundboard-quality tapes, and was almost always happy with my “souvenirs.” I used TDK tapes initially, then Maxell.

Recording a concert was always an adventure. Through trial and error, I arrived at the following procedure: To get past the ticket-takers, I wore loose pants and stuffed the recorder down the front where the odds of being frisked were minimal. I wore a loose t-shirt or sweatshirt to cover the “bulge” and held my breath. The dead batteries and cheap tape I kept in the recorder were occasionally confiscated, but my friends were already
inside with the real supplies. Once inside, I would meet my friends and exchange the batteries and tape. We had excellent seats for many concerts, but that put us in close proximity to ushers and stage security. We needed to be in a constant state of vigilance, and we were also busy with the timing of the tape-flips. I would occasionally take photographs with a cheap camera, which gave me additional equipment to juggle. Without fail, someone in my row would be in the wrong seat, and an usher would have to sort it out. It was all I could do to keep the recorder hidden without covering the microphone. It was always chaotic, but the reward was great as we listened to the concert again on the way home.

I’m indebted to all those who assisted and inspired me along the way: Gary, Steve, and Paul/Rich, Rob, and Paul/John, Sue, Al, and Rich/Jody, Laurie, Danny, and Martha/Geri and Allison/Howie and Linda/Kathryn. Thanks to Mike for all of his efforts. Most of all, thanks to my family – K, M, E, and B – for their support and patience.

You are cordially invited to enjoy these time capsules. There is always room for one more in our row, but if we are loud or talkative, please don’t judge us too harshly. We were swept away by the magic of the moment, and we hope you will be too.

I have the name of the taper but will not disclose it, since I do not know
how he feels about having his name bandied about on the internet!

NOTE: I found both Roundabout and Yours Is No Disgrace on the
disk I was given for 1977-08-07, but I believe they were part of this
show and have been included in this set. Both tracks were recorded
on 1977-08-07 as well as this date.

Yes : The Lostbrook Tape Series - Volume 7

I was in the middle of a Yes marathon. This was my fourth Yes/Donovan concert in five days, and the second of three nights at Madison Square Garden. I sat in the fourth row
directly in front of Jon Anderson, surrounded by my closest friends. Al brought a good camera with him and we took plenty of pictures. The set list was the same, so I was able to nail the tape-flips. Join us as we continue our Yes adventure in the summer of 77.

NOTE: I received two disks of SHN files, each containing one side of a tape. After Yours Is No Disgrace on the second SHN file, I found another recording of Roundabout. There was also another recording of Yours Is No Disgrace included on the 1977-08-07 disk, which was labeled "YIND 8-7-77." Both are different performances from the main part of the tape, which leads me to believe they belong with the 1977-08-06 recording.

Sunday night at Madison Square Garden. A slight upgrade to this one:

http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=158399

...so maybe the same 148 people will care about this one, too. Same tape, just a lower-gen rip. Slightly more stereo, but still pretty mono, slightly more definition, but still pretty muddy. Worth it if you are into C- tapes. And damn who is not into THAT? This was sent to me by SW a year or so ago and just made me a little kid again. Best Yes tape to turn up that year. And is STILL sucks!

;-)

Hope you like it as much as I do.

Yes: The Lostbrook Tape Series Volume 121

The Yes party continued on our third and final night at Madison Square Garden. After "Parallels," you'll hear Jody say, "Nice Howe seats!" - a reference to our fourth row location directly in front of Steve Howe.
This was our fifth Yes concert in six days in two different cities. Reasonable people might have called it quits after this, but Reason took a vacation during the Summer of '77. In the end, we were punished for our gluttony.
See Volume 122 for details.

ORIGINAL ART by Gromek

REMASTER SUMMARY: All work done at the 48/24 resolution, before downsampling. EQ work to reveal detail, as the audience heard and felt it. At least one very annoying local audience whistler has amplitude reduced by 1 dB at various points where no Yes signal occurs, but otherwise 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. Conservative noise reduction applied to compensate for unfavorable signal to noise ratio during quieter band moments and to further reveal midrange frequency detail, but some hiss has to be tolerated to avoid signal damage. Pitch- tempo was approximately 1% off, now corrected.

CONTRAST: Previously circulated as a "Highland" profit boot factory affair, made from a 2nd or more generation tape dub and a sonic mudslide. In B77 you have the original master tapes, transferred at
48/24 resolution, and carefully remastered with deep Yes familiarity. You also have the complete source and lineage info.

NOTE FROM ONE OFFICIAL "BLIND" B80 PROJECT TEST GROUP LISTENER:

"1977 seemed to be the only year without at least one really outstanding Yes audience capture. The idea of a Balrog capture of a '77 show, therefore, was extremely enticing. Listening [nonetheless]
to the raw version of AYAI was a very strange experience--the exact same performance, but without the "presence" and visceral excitement the mastering brought.

"The percussive metals [now] have that incredibly lifelike definition that seems to be one of Lestat’s specialties. And almost every emergence of Howe's pedal steel brought goosebumps. Frankly, I'm not sure that I've ever enjoyed a performance of AYAI this much- -while a great song, it is one of those perennials in Yes shows that rarely stands out as very special.  But something about this performance does feel special--as if the whole "sunshiny Alpine" vibe of GFTO carries over to this song as well here. Yet, I didn't have that same sense when listening to the raw version. The mastering really allowed a level of majesty to come through in a way I wouldn't have thought possible.

"I really, really like what was done with this tape. [Yes] don't sound distant at all, and have a nice, warm tonality, with an almost holographic stereo image (particularly surprising given the taping
position). The only real sonic impediment is that '77 swish/swirl effect, but that is far outweighed by the sonic pleasures on offer here. This is a HUGE improvement over the other '77 shows I've heard -
I have a much greater sense of 'being there' than with any of those other shows. The pipe organ and pedal steel sounds are nothing short of otherworldly!

In any event, I've really been enjoying this, and can't wait for the entire release!"

- "NorthNYMark"

"I'm pleased to have once again had the chance to participate in the pre-torrenting review of this new Balrog/Lestat production. What I learned off the bat is that each recording reviewed must be evaluated on its own merits and not simply the pedigree attached to it. B78, B79 and B80 set the bar very high. So with this in mind, I fought my way past caveats listed and concentrated on the following:
 
"the astounding up front vocals of Jon the ever nimble fret work of Steve the great low end bass sounds of Chris the heroic drumming of Alan especially during Awaken when it seemed the
Band was going off the rails, and especially:
 
"the fact the full power of this band is captured by a gentleman sitting in the cheap seats of the Garden in 1977!!

"These facts, combined with Lestat's audio engineering magic, result in a recording that matches if not exceeds the best captures from the GFTO tour already circulating. So give a listen and see if you don't get goose bumps like I did. Go on- I dare you!"

- "Jackstraw"

NOTES FROM THE PRODUCERS:

Almost without exception, circulating GFTO recordings shows have been hollow, muddy affairs, as if the gods of recording had determined that music of such magnificence should not be heard unfettered; the best a listener could hope for was that whistlers and clappers didn't overwhelm the recording, and the recordist didn't have a flip mid- Awaken.

Boston 1977 is that exception: bright, clean and absolutely MUST be considered strictly in context of ARs from the 1977 GOING FOR THE ONE Yes tour to be fully appreciated, especially by those already familiar with others by its taper from other years.

Despite many problems described below, B77’s dynamic range, detail, lifelike presence, and balance among GFTO tour ARs now stand nearly if not completely alone, and were enough to deliver sound after the restoration process far exceeding both taper’s and my expectations. When I first analyzed the raw master I knew it could eventually offer more depth and detail than most GFTO shows in circulation, but due to a number of negatives both unique to it and universal to 1977 Yes audience captures even I dared not dream it would ever come out this well.

Even with the best tapers and equipment involved, due to sound system configuration and road engineer peculiarities GFTO tour arena ARs simply did not tape well from the audience. There are no exceptions. Some small venue captures from Europe appear to be better in many ways thanks to less ‘swallowing’ of PA output and less taper distance, but these in turn are represented in circulation either tape generations removed or poorly mastered or both. Most audience captures from the 1970s remain rough. In Yes’ case the best ones from either side of 1977 beat even the best ones from 1977 for uniformly high sound quality.

B77 is an arena event, in an arena of legendarily bad acoustics. Its taper had a mediocre location relative to stage and sound system. The resulting problems of band to crowd volume ratio, greater interference with soundstage by crowd movement near mikes, seeming additional imbalance in PA output mix, and quieter Yesworks largely crossing a sonic ‘event horizon’ will be noticeable at times.

We at "BLG" actually like detailed crowd sound and consider it a critical part of the event reality, but at least one whistler right in the mikes is most irritating. Clapping also more prominent as
expected. Neither over modulate or distort however, and are fairly confined between Yes numbers.

Local crowd movement effects the opening stanzas of "Parallels" and "Close to the Edge", where high frequencies suddenly become much more detailed about 30 seconds to 1 minute in, and what sounds like a left channel dropout during "AYAI" is another symptom.

"Wondrous Stories", "Turn of the Century" and softer parts of other pieces are the most disappointing moments in this and many other ARs of the tour thanks to the arena ‘event horizon’ effect. Excepting some of Alan White’s metals, much Yessound almost ‘disappears’ during these numbers and it’s aggravated by a couple of items described just below. Some definition in Squire’s bass even during full-bore moments is also lost amidst related Boston Garden ‘boom’.

Happily these problems mitigated quite well, without altering natural PA output mix, with all Yes parts now more ‘upfront’ and in balance with each other than most GFTO tour offerings - but they’ll still be
noticeable at times.

Add to them the universal GFTO tour problems of uneven PA amplitude and ‘swish/swirl’ [henceforth "SS"] - a hideous distortion of certain high frequencies afflicting Yes ARs from 1977 like no other year or tour after TALES FROM TOPOGRAPHIC OCEANS [although it seems to have made a nasty comeback in 1980]. For the most part it involves certain percussive metals, but occasionally other things too. When it rears up it can be beyond aggravating.

SS cannot be edited out or effectively mitigated with any software, and despite so many outstandingly good features B77 has an unusually severe case of it. We’re nearly certain it results when already
uneven, poorly aimed PA output is interfered with by crowd movement [even air movement] and interacts with microphone diaphragms in ways it seems not to with eardrums at the event. The more distant the taper from PA system the worse it gets, but even front and center it can be bad.

Meanwhile, at least one Yes insider has reported the soundman in 1977 had high end hearing loss. This would explain at least in part many unpleasant GFTO tour anomalies, the plague of SS among them even though it was probably not noticed by actual audiences. It also easily explains why recordings from the tour including its YESSHOWS selections are so trebly, and PA volume frequently so uneven.

We then have added 1977 cassette tape hiss and a ‘tunnely’ property resulting from the particular venue and taping position. These could be mitigated thankfully, but only to a degree without damaging signal and badly altering natural sound capture properties [commonly attempted in other GFTO tour ARs with disastrous results].

Finally, Yes’ early GFTO performances were rough by Yes standards. Arrangements and improvisations were far smoother and more elegant by the time they hit Europe in November. In B77 - one of the earliest GFTO shows - we hear more than a few flubs and it seems the new material had a lot of developing to do onstage. Happily, like sound quality it turns out to have been a better performance than the raw master let on - one of the major benefits of the remaster.

-Lestat, February 2009

INDEPENDENT SOUND ANALYSIS:

Several trusted 'beta testers', including Barry, Gromek, NorthNYMark and others. Even with the especially severe SS every member of the project test group has told us they found B77 more detailed and realistic sounding than any other GFTO tour AR in their collections, and they are fanatical Yes collectors. My reaction as well, and though it’s unlikely to be universally shared it’s enough we expect most listeners will be ecstatic.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Many thanks to Yes, then and now.

Special thanks to Gromek for artwork [as always] so perfectly evocative of the show's energy and this effort.

Endless, endless thanks to Barry for another miraculous AR, the expertise, bravery and sacrifice of enjoyment it required.

NOTES FROM BARRY:

I went to four shows in 1977: Springfield 8/10, Boston twice (8/12 and 8/13?)*, and Providence 8/15. I taped the two for which I had the best seats (8/12 and 8/15) and was very lucky to catch Yours Is No Disgrace as the second encore in both. Along with Starship Trooper, it was Steve Howe at his improvisational peak.

As Lestat notes, the sound quality of the GFTO tour was poor in comparison to the "in the round" Tormato and Drama years that followed. The traditional arena arrangement with the stage at one end
of the floor varied in sound quality depending on the building acoustics and may have been at its worst in the boomy old Boston Garden.

For that reason, this recording has never had an authorized remaster before now. I made a few trade copies back in ‘77 but I was much more excited about the Providence 8/15 show, which was made from much better seats. I almost had a WBCN DJ convinced to play some Providence tracks on FM radio during a Yes marathon but, when I arrived at the station, discovered that they had no quarter-track reel-to-reel decks.

Providence was a PRRP release called "Musical Rainbows" that’s been well circulated by now. Both Providence and Boston have appeared in the form of the usual commercial bootleg garbage.

My goal in taping concerts has always been to achieve time travel. I want go back in time and relive musical experiences that were much too important to me to allow them to be heard once and lost forever. And I want the experience to be available to everyone who loves the music.

Anyone who has ever taped a concert knows that there's a price to pay, not only in terms of money spent and risk taken, but that making a good recording is work. You have to monitor the equipment and that diminishes your enjoyment of the show. Once again, I want to point out how much Lestat's remastering work makes up for that loss. Other than the absence of smoke in the air and the ambience of the old Boston Garden, it's not much different from being there. I sincerely hope it provides the same experience for you.

* Not 100% sure about this date. I think it was a second show added on after the first one sold out. In any case, it’s not listed on Forgotten Yesterdays.

NOTES FROM GROMEK

Even though we’re warned at great length above of all the problems in all audience recordings from the GOING FOR THE ONE tour including this one, I’ll be surprised if this one does not go into history as one of the absolute best sounding live recordings to ever circulate among Yes fans! I even think it’s the best one to date to come out of the "BLG" treasure chest, especially considering the year and tour.

As a ‘beta tester’ it was an absolute pleasure to listen to this show. The sound is amazing, it’s clear and full bodied, like any live recording should sound. Certainly for a recording of its age, and from
1977!

As before I am happy and proud to be a part of the "BLG" team. "B" and "L" both have done an amazing job in bringing this recording to us all for our enjoyment."B" has taken all the risks in getting his equipment into the venue, but got away with it, and has produced a beautiful recording. "L" has done absolute wonders with the recording, and has made it sound even better.

I salute both, and hope they both will continue to do their voodoo that they both do so well, so they can bring pleasure to all who wish to hear a good recording of good music.

My part in this project is creating the cover art for this particular recording, and although I have to say that my part is the easiest part of the whole process and package, I am still very happy to do it, and
I sincerely do hope you all will approve and enjoy what I created. I hope it gives you that little bit extra that you may need when listening to this wonderful recording!

That would make it all worth while for me, to create a bridge between the show, sound, the story behind it and the imagery on and in the
cover art made.

So place this disc in you cd player, sit back and enjoy the ride. It will blow you away!

NOTES FROM RAMBLE ON JOE [project test listener, musician and writer in residence]

Boston 1977: The return of Rick Wakeman

From the beginning, Jon shows the strong assured voice which so moved Tony Wilson to write so favorably about the band back in 1968. As noted, there are some minor PA mix problems (mainly in the bass), though these improve through the first part of the show. This doesn’t really matter; from the opening strains of the "Firebird Suite", Barry’s tape provides the clear, clean sonics so painfully missing from practically every tape available of this tour. Despite his caveats about location and nearby whistlers, this is easily the best 1977 Yes capture to reach these ears - it’s tempting to quote from"Circus of Heaven":

"Was that something beautiful, amazing, wonderful, extraordinarily beautiful?"

To which the pragmatic Barry would respond: "Oh it was OK" - well aware that you simply can’t capture the best sound at the back of the hall (echo) near a wall (muddy bass). There’s the occasional tape
flaw, which is only to be expected in a cassette three decades old. The amazing thing is that he did in fact make an excellent capture which still sounds great today, and the performance itself more than
compensates for the occasional technical issue.

As for the band themselves, their enthusiasm exceeds themselves: in "All Good People", it sounds like Steve is actually throwing in extra notes in those incredibly fast runs. Rick was of course busily up front right from the opening song, and puts a little middle-eastern edge into his CTTE solo. "Close to the Edge" is especially rewarding, as it opens with such fury it’s a wonder the band didn’t tear
themselves apart. It’s nice to hear Alan so thoroughly in charge, alternately pushing & holding the band. This actually frees Chris to be even more inventive, and he adds little fills into CTTE I hadn’t
noticed before.

But let’s get back to Jon - it’s easy to focus on such heavyweight instrumentalists, but how about the singer? In food, there’s a term from the Japanese, unami, which describes any given food at its peak, in its best presentation - the state in which it just couldn’t be any better.

For Jon’s voice, that’s arguably 1977: his voice was fully mature and strong, built up by a decade of performing, and not yet middle-aged; he takes on the high notes with grace and confidence, rarely showing any sign of strain. In addition, he had the GOING FOR THE ONE material (and band!), all of which showcased his voice beautifully.

The band seems to have realized this. Unlike every other tour, there are no solo instrumental spots -- all the performances are full band songs, and Jon takes the reins without hesitation, song after song. By comparison, the band themselves are still feeling out the material at this early date; "Going for the One" isn’t performed, the so-called"Flight Jam" leading into "Awaken" would become more focused later in the tour, and "Awaken" itself isn’t quite as well realized as we need it to be.

"Starship Trooper" begins to make up for this, as Rick reminds us again why he was wanted back in the band: one minute he’s stodgily serious, the next as playful as a kid with a new synthesizer. Sure I
wish Steve’s guitar was louder, but that doesn’t have to spoil our pleasure in a perfectly good "Trooper" replete with synth explosions - especially when that’s followed by a "Roundabout" performed with real vigor. Check out Steve’s feedback swells during the quiet part, and
Rick’s organ solo - all to resolve on a resoundingly triumphant final
chord -- really good stuff!

Had they left it there, we’d be content to call it a strong & complete show, but the band pulls a final surprise by playing a second encore - a rarity for any band. But this is Yes, and they’ve already played all their usual encore material - what could they play? No easy way out here, folks: two hours into the show, and the band tackles "Yours Is No Disgrace" with no sign of fatigue: Steve burns through his solo, and Jon still sings like he has energy and range to spare. What a night for Boston; what a night for Yes; what a treat for the fans in attendance!

And now, thanks to Balrog and Lestat, we finally have an audience capture of a show from the GOING FOR THE ONE tour approaching the quality of "B78" and "B79". Even a brief exposure may result in an unwillingness to listen to other tapes from this tour; for that, we apologize, and note that it’s an unavoidable (if not entirely unintended) consequence. We think it’s a risk worth taking; we hope you think so too.

ORIGINAL ART by Gromek

REMASTER SUMMARY: All work done at the 48/24 resolution, before downsampling. EQ work to reveal detail, as the audience heard and felt it. At least one very annoying local audience whistler has amplitude reduced by 1 dB at various points where no Yes signal occurs, but otherwise 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. Conservative noise reduction applied to compensate for unfavorable signal to noise ratio during quieter band moments and to further reveal midrange frequency detail, but some hiss has to be tolerated to avoid signal damage. Pitch- tempo was approximately 1% off, now corrected.

CONTRAST: Previously circulated as a "Highland" profit boot factory affair, made from a 2nd or more generation tape dub and a sonic mudslide. In B77 you have the original master tapes, transferred at
48/24 resolution, and carefully remastered with deep Yes familiarity. You also have the complete source and lineage info.

NOTE FROM ONE OFFICIAL "BLIND" B80 PROJECT TEST GROUP LISTENER:

"1977 seemed to be the only year without at least one really outstanding Yes audience capture. The idea of a Balrog capture of a '77 show, therefore, was extremely enticing. Listening [nonetheless]
to the raw version of AYAI was a very strange experience--the exact same performance, but without the "presence" and visceral excitement the mastering brought.

"The percussive metals [now] have that incredibly lifelike definition that seems to be one of Lestat’s specialties. And almost every emergence of Howe's pedal steel brought goosebumps. Frankly, I'm not sure that I've ever enjoyed a performance of AYAI this much- -while a great song, it is one of those perennials in Yes shows that rarely stands out as very special.  But something about this performance does feel special--as if the whole "sunshiny Alpine" vibe of GFTO carries over to this song as well here. Yet, I didn't have that same sense when listening to the raw version. The mastering really allowed a level of majesty to come through in a way I wouldn't have thought possible.

"I really, really like what was done with this tape. [Yes] don't sound distant at all, and have a nice, warm tonality, with an almost holographic stereo image (particularly surprising given the taping
position). The only real sonic impediment is that '77 swish/swirl effect, but that is far outweighed by the sonic pleasures on offer here. This is a HUGE improvement over the other '77 shows I've heard -
I have a much greater sense of 'being there' than with any of those other shows. The pipe organ and pedal steel sounds are nothing short of otherworldly!

In any event, I've really been enjoying this, and can't wait for the entire release!"

- "NorthNYMark"

"I'm pleased to have once again had the chance to participate in the pre-torrenting review of this new Balrog/Lestat production. What I learned off the bat is that each recording reviewed must be evaluated on its own merits and not simply the pedigree attached to it. B78, B79 and B80 set the bar very high. So with this in mind, I fought my way past caveats listed and concentrated on the following:
 
"the astounding up front vocals of Jon the ever nimble fret work of Steve the great low end bass sounds of Chris the heroic drumming of Alan especially during Awaken when it seemed the
Band was going off the rails, and especially:
 
"the fact the full power of this band is captured by a gentleman sitting in the cheap seats of the Garden in 1977!!

"These facts, combined with Lestat's audio engineering magic, result in a recording that matches if not exceeds the best captures from the GFTO tour already circulating. So give a listen and see if you don't get goose bumps like I did. Go on- I dare you!"

- "Jackstraw"

NOTES FROM THE PRODUCERS:

Almost without exception, circulating GFTO recordings shows have been hollow, muddy affairs, as if the gods of recording had determined that music of such magnificence should not be heard unfettered; the best a listener could hope for was that whistlers and clappers didn't overwhelm the recording, and the recordist didn't have a flip mid- Awaken.

Boston 1977 is that exception: bright, clean and absolutely MUST be considered strictly in context of ARs from the 1977 GOING FOR THE ONE Yes tour to be fully appreciated, especially by those already familiar with others by its taper from other years.

Despite many problems described below, B77’s dynamic range, detail, lifelike presence, and balance among GFTO tour ARs now stand nearly if not completely alone, and were enough to deliver sound after the restoration process far exceeding both taper’s and my expectations. When I first analyzed the raw master I knew it could eventually offer more depth and detail than most GFTO shows in circulation, but due to a number of negatives both unique to it and universal to 1977 Yes audience captures even I dared not dream it would ever come out this well.

Even with the best tapers and equipment involved, due to sound system configuration and road engineer peculiarities GFTO tour arena ARs simply did not tape well from the audience. There are no exceptions. Some small venue captures from Europe appear to be better in many ways thanks to less ‘swallowing’ of PA output and less taper distance, but these in turn are represented in circulation either tape generations removed or poorly mastered or both. Most audience captures from the 1970s remain rough. In Yes’ case the best ones from either side of 1977 beat even the best ones from 1977 for uniformly high sound quality.

B77 is an arena event, in an arena of legendarily bad acoustics. Its taper had a mediocre location relative to stage and sound system. The resulting problems of band to crowd volume ratio, greater interference with soundstage by crowd movement near mikes, seeming additional imbalance in PA output mix, and quieter Yesworks largely crossing a sonic ‘event horizon’ will be noticeable at times.

We at "BLG" actually like detailed crowd sound and consider it a critical part of the event reality, but at least one whistler right in the mikes is most irritating. Clapping also more prominent as
expected. Neither over modulate or distort however, and are fairly confined between Yes numbers.

Local crowd movement effects the opening stanzas of "Parallels" and "Close to the Edge", where high frequencies suddenly become much more detailed about 30 seconds to 1 minute in, and what sounds like a left channel dropout during "AYAI" is another symptom.

"Wondrous Stories", "Turn of the Century" and softer parts of other pieces are the most disappointing moments in this and many other ARs of the tour thanks to the arena ‘event horizon’ effect. Excepting some of Alan White’s metals, much Yessound almost ‘disappears’ during these numbers and it’s aggravated by a couple of items described just below. Some definition in Squire’s bass even during full-bore moments is also lost amidst related Boston Garden ‘boom’.

Happily these problems mitigated quite well, without altering natural PA output mix, with all Yes parts now more ‘upfront’ and in balance with each other than most GFTO tour offerings - but they’ll still be
noticeable at times.

Add to them the universal GFTO tour problems of uneven PA amplitude and ‘swish/swirl’ [henceforth "SS"] - a hideous distortion of certain high frequencies afflicting Yes ARs from 1977 like no other year or tour after TALES FROM TOPOGRAPHIC OCEANS [although it seems to have made a nasty comeback in 1980]. For the most part it involves certain percussive metals, but occasionally other things too. When it rears up it can be beyond aggravating.

SS cannot be edited out or effectively mitigated with any software, and despite so many outstandingly good features B77 has an unusually severe case of it. We’re nearly certain it results when already
uneven, poorly aimed PA output is interfered with by crowd movement [even air movement] and interacts with microphone diaphragms in ways it seems not to with eardrums at the event. The more distant the taper from PA system the worse it gets, but even front and center it can be bad.

Meanwhile, at least one Yes insider has reported the soundman in 1977 had high end hearing loss. This would explain at least in part many unpleasant GFTO tour anomalies, the plague of SS among them even though it was probably not noticed by actual audiences. It also easily explains why recordings from the tour including its YESSHOWS selections are so trebly, and PA volume frequently so uneven.

We then have added 1977 cassette tape hiss and a ‘tunnely’ property resulting from the particular venue and taping position. These could be mitigated thankfully, but only to a degree without damaging signal and badly altering natural sound capture properties [commonly attempted in other GFTO tour ARs with disastrous results].

Finally, Yes’ early GFTO performances were rough by Yes standards. Arrangements and improvisations were far smoother and more elegant by the time they hit Europe in November. In B77 - one of the earliest GFTO shows - we hear more than a few flubs and it seems the new material had a lot of developing to do onstage. Happily, like sound quality it turns out to have been a better performance than the raw master let on - one of the major benefits of the remaster.

-Lestat, February 2009

INDEPENDENT SOUND ANALYSIS:

Several trusted 'beta testers', including Barry, Gromek, NorthNYMark and others. Even with the especially severe SS every member of the project test group has told us they found B77 more detailed and realistic sounding than any other GFTO tour AR in their collections, and they are fanatical Yes collectors. My reaction as well, and though it’s unlikely to be universally shared it’s enough we expect most listeners will be ecstatic.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Many thanks to Yes, then and now.

Special thanks to Gromek for artwork [as always] so perfectly evocative of the show's energy and this effort.

Endless, endless thanks to Barry for another miraculous AR, the expertise, bravery and sacrifice of enjoyment it required.

NOTES FROM BARRY:

I went to four shows in 1977: Springfield 8/10, Boston twice (8/12 and 8/13?)*, and Providence 8/15. I taped the two for which I had the best seats (8/12 and 8/15) and was very lucky to catch Yours Is No Disgrace as the second encore in both. Along with Starship Trooper, it was Steve Howe at his improvisational peak.

As Lestat notes, the sound quality of the GFTO tour was poor in comparison to the "in the round" Tormato and Drama years that followed. The traditional arena arrangement with the stage at one end
of the floor varied in sound quality depending on the building acoustics and may have been at its worst in the boomy old Boston Garden.

For that reason, this recording has never had an authorized remaster before now. I made a few trade copies back in ‘77 but I was much more excited about the Providence 8/15 show, which was made from much better seats. I almost had a WBCN DJ convinced to play some Providence tracks on FM radio during a Yes marathon but, when I arrived at the station, discovered that they had no quarter-track reel-to-reel decks.

Providence was a PRRP release called "Musical Rainbows" that’s been well circulated by now. Both Providence and Boston have appeared in the form of the usual commercial bootleg garbage.

My goal in taping concerts has always been to achieve time travel. I want go back in time and relive musical experiences that were much too important to me to allow them to be heard once and lost forever. And I want the experience to be available to everyone who loves the music.

Anyone who has ever taped a concert knows that there's a price to pay, not only in terms of money spent and risk taken, but that making a good recording is work. You have to monitor the equipment and that diminishes your enjoyment of the show. Once again, I want to point out how much Lestat's remastering work makes up for that loss. Other than the absence of smoke in the air and the ambience of the old Boston Garden, it's not much different from being there. I sincerely hope it provides the same experience for you.

* Not 100% sure about this date. I think it was a second show added on after the first one sold out. In any case, it’s not listed on Forgotten Yesterdays.

NOTES FROM GROMEK

Even though we’re warned at great length above of all the problems in all audience recordings from the GOING FOR THE ONE tour including this one, I’ll be surprised if this one does not go into history as one of the absolute best sounding live recordings to ever circulate among Yes fans! I even think it’s the best one to date to come out of the "BLG" treasure chest, especially considering the year and tour.

As a ‘beta tester’ it was an absolute pleasure to listen to this show. The sound is amazing, it’s clear and full bodied, like any live recording should sound. Certainly for a recording of its age, and from
1977!

As before I am happy and proud to be a part of the "BLG" team. "B" and "L" both have done an amazing job in bringing this recording to us all for our enjoyment."B" has taken all the risks in getting his equipment into the venue, but got away with it, and has produced a beautiful recording. "L" has done absolute wonders with the recording, and has made it sound even better.

I salute both, and hope they both will continue to do their voodoo that they both do so well, so they can bring pleasure to all who wish to hear a good recording of good music.

My part in this project is creating the cover art for this particular recording, and although I have to say that my part is the easiest part of the whole process and package, I am still very happy to do it, and
I sincerely do hope you all will approve and enjoy what I created. I hope it gives you that little bit extra that you may need when listening to this wonderful recording!

That would make it all worth while for me, to create a bridge between the show, sound, the story behind it and the imagery on and in the
cover art made.

So place this disc in you cd player, sit back and enjoy the ride. It will blow you away!

Going for the Best

Here we present the rock group YES, on stage in Boston in 1977 during one of their most successful tours. In the audience that day were two expert concert tapers: Barry Rogoff and Dan Lampinski. Both used outstanding equipment and captured the concert audio for all of us to enjoy today. Sound characteristics would suggest that Rogoff was further back in the venue than Lampinski who was seated in section 2 row 11. Rogoff remembers being "dead center" but has no documentation of his exact seat. Through the wonders of the Internet and advances in computer audio mastering software, these two recordings can now be merged to produce an enhanced stereo recording of this event.

The remastered recording begins with 90 seconds of the Rogoff source. The Lampinski source then comes in to produce the stereo image. Sound quality suggests that the Rogoff mics were hidden at the beginning. Sound is a bit muffled until 45 seconds into Parallels when it becomes more clear and the full quality of the stereo recording can be appreciated. When asked about this, Barry Rogoff recently stated: "It was probably the point at which enough of the people in front of us sat down to get an unobstructed, on-axis view of the PA. I was using a mike stand made from one leg of a lightweight tripod. It was held in place by a photographer's clamp on the arm of the seat. The stand was connected to the clamp with a wing nut acting as a set screw."

At the end of Close To The Edge and just before the next song (Wonderous Stories) begins, both tapers changed/flipped tapes so there is a brief fade-out/fade-in. Given the need to patch a 16 second tape flip segment of the Lampinski source with the Rogoff source, at this point in the song Awaken, the stereo field converts to single-source and then reverts back to full stereo. Careful listening allows identification of this segment.

This powerful performance is even better with the enhanced stereo image produced by combining these two recordings. The characteristics are best appreciated by listening to the show on a good car or living room sound system.

PRRP Staff

Notes from the Re-Master

Each recording was separately remastered. During the process, non-destructive repairs were made to clicks, pops and other tape imperfections. Pitch and frequency response/EQ were then compared and matched as close as possible. The dynamics of the two recordings were similar and calculations were made to match average and total power for each. The two recordings were then synchronized to the exact same run time. A stereo field was then created by blending the two sources together. By combining the recordings, the overall stereo field was expanded to better reproduce the experience that must have existed in the venue that night. Phasing was corrected and routines were used to center the sound in the stereo field. The final recording was then tracked using traditional tracking points.

Notes:
Recording begins with 90 seconds of Rogoff source then Lampinski source comes in to produce the stereo image.

Sound quality suggests that the Rogoff mics were hidden at the beginning. Sound is a bit muffled until 45 seconds into Parallels when it becomes more clear at which point the full quality of the stereo recording can be appreciated. Taper says: "It was probably the point at which enough of the people in front of us sat down to get an unobstructed, on-axis view of the PA. I was using a mike stand made from one leg of a lightweight tripod. It was held in place by a photographer's clamp on the arm of the seat. The stand was connected to the clamp with a wingnut acting as a set screw."

At the end of Close To The Edge and just before the next song (Wonderous Stories) begins, both tapers changed/flipped tapes so there is a brief fade-out/fade-in.

Given the need to patch a 16 second tape flip segment of the Lampinski source with Rogoff source, at this point in the song Awaken, the stereo field converts to single-source and then reverts back to full stereo. Careful listening allows identification of this segment.

Sound characteristics would suggest that Rogoff was further back in the venue than Lampinski who was seated in section 2 row 11. Rogoff remembers being "dead center" but has no documentation of exact seat.

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.

And now we have Two!!

In 2009, the Lampinski team set out to make available many master tape recordings from the Dan Lampinski collection. One of these recordings was made in Boston on June 18th, 1975 at the performance of Pink Floyd. Steve Hopkins was also at that event and recorded the show as well. PRRP has provided a remastered version of each recording along with a written account of the similarities and differences between the two. Now, we have that same opportunity again. PRRP 034 was our initial remaster of Barry Rogoff's outstanding recording of Yes performing in Providence, Rhode Island on August 15th, 1977. In 2009, as part of the Lampinski project, the Dan Lampinski recording of the same show was made available. This, again, gave PRRP a rare opportunity to remaster both recordings and offer the unique listening experience of the same concert, from two different points of view.

Barry Rogoff tells us that he was in the 5th row for this concert while the ticket stub from Dan Lampinski shows that he was in section 2, row J, a bit further back. Both were experienced tapers using almost identical equipment -as noted in our info files. With both recordings, the gaps in each could be filled using material from the other. This was done to provide the most accurate audio document of the events of that evening. For example, the original PRRP remaster of Rogoff's recording did not patch the missing section at the first tape flip. This has now been done as a new remaster of Rogoff's tapes has been completed for this project. Further, there is over 5 minutes of thunderous applause after the song Roundabout at the end of the concert. This segment was not only restored to the Lampinski recording but was tracked as a separate segment for both recordings to highlight its importance. The length of this applause must have forced the band back on stage for one more song, Yours is no Disgrace, You can sense the audience practically demanding that Yes return to the stage as the applause continues and builds. For those who have actually experienced this type of event, it can be as moving as the music itself.

The presence of both recordings also allows proper judgments to be made about EQ and the speed of the tapes. Both characteristics were corrected by comparing one to the other and comparing the end result to commercial live and studio references. These adjustments were not made during the PRRP 034 remaster of Rogoff's tapes. There has been discussion on the DIME forum of synchronizing the two tape sources for a matrix recording. Given that Barry Rogoff was very close to the stage and Dan Lampinski was quite a distance away, this would make most sense in a 5.1 surround project with the Lampinski source in the back channels. Still, completely synchronizing these two tapes would be an extensive task. For this PRRP offering, the two recordings were speed corrected and matched for runtime down to the second; but no attempt was made to match them to the millisecond. All track times are identical for the show except the first track which is longer in the Rogoff recording than in Lampinski's by about 80 seconds. Mr. Rogoff began his recording before Mr. Lampinski but both men terminated their recordings at almost the exact same time, within 2 seconds of each other. Ironic. More details on the two remasters and the differences between the PRRP 034 Rogoff remaster and this new version can be found in the info files.

Below is the original description of the show from Barry Rogoff.

“As hockey rinks go, the Providence Civic Center has good acoustics. However, the PA system levels and the mix were all over the place. Later on, I read that Yes had a substitute sound man on that tour. He had high-end hearing loss which explains why the mix is so bright. (PRRP: we fixed this is the remaster process) As far as levels, the Firebird opening was okay, but when the band started playing Parallels, you could hardly hear them. The sound man was trying to let people get used to the volume slowly and overdid it. He kept nudging up the volume during All Good People. It actually got a little too loud at one point, then came back down. I was taking photographs and had an experienced friend (a Deadhead) monitoring the levels on my deck. He did his best to compensate for what was happening. Close to the Edge and Wondrous Stories were okay but the sound man jacked up the volume for the silly tour song (Colours of the Rainbow) and then dropped it way back down for Turn of the Century. (PRRP: Again, fixed in the remaster process) I think my friend was wasted by then. The levels were a little on the low side for the rest of the show.”
 
“…When the show started, the ushers allowed all the rowdys from the cheap seats to rush down to the stage and jam themselves into every inch of space. They were all jumping up and down, the whole building was literally shaking, and the crowd noise was unbelievable. Then, the people in the front row decided to stand up on their rickety wooden chairs, which was completely unnecessary. You can hear the people behind them yelling at them to sit down.”

“…In spite of all that, the band was on fire that night. Steve played wailing solos on Starship Trooper and Yours Is No Disgrace. I think they're the best versions I've heard other than the Close To The Edge tour in 73. Rick was superb on Close to the Edge and Awaken. Awaken was recorded on a C120 tape so it's a complete, uncut version. I've also been told by several Yes traders that it's one of a very few 100% complete Going For The One concerts with no side change in Awaken….”

“I was standing on a rickety wooden chair trying to hand-hold a 300mm telephoto lens for close-ups while the whole building was literally shaking throughout the night. Towards the end of the show, I had run out of film and was watching through binoculars, again, from the fifth row. Jon nudged Chris and pointed at me, laughing at the crazy guy who just couldn't see enough Yes up close. I miss those days.”

Here is another in the series of Going For The One shows that I had a request for. I got this show in a CD trade, but it sounds like a low gen. As usual, I cleaned it up some. There is some major distortion in Parallels, but it settles down by I've Seen All Good People. The bass was a little too much for the mics in spots, but overall a nice and unremarkable show. No Going For The One here and a short tour song. According to Forgotten Yesterdays Yours Is No Disgrace was played, but I have my doubts as Starship Trooper was played and YIND is not in the show here.

Disc 2: And You And I, “Awaken” A Prelude, Awaken, Starship Trooper, Yours Is No Disgrace

Yes played two dates at the Cobo Hall in Detroit and High Vibration Ship offers the first of them virtually complete. It is a very good audience recording that is a bit distant from the stage but captures the atmosphere of the event perfectly. There is a cut and five second gap from 4:10 to 4:15 in “Turn Of The Century” but is otherwise musically complete. The Cobo Hall is the place for several legendary Yes concerts including the February 28th, 1974, the final complete Topographic Oceans show, and August 16th, 1976 which is the source for “Gates Of Delirium” and “Ritual” on Yesshows. Of all the silver Yes titles there are more from the 1977 than any other tour on Highland and other good silver labels.

There is a bit of confusion about the set list. The Forgotten Yesterdays website claims that “Going For The One” was played between “And You And I” and the prelude to “Awaken.” There is even documentation regarding an Anderson mc before the track. Since the song is absent from this release, it lead many to believe that Highland used an incomplete tape. However there is absolutely no cut between the two songs where the song is said to be which leads me to the conclusion that the review has a tape that has the song edited in from somewhere. Or perhaps the cut is so subtle so as to avoid detection. More information will obviously be needed but since there is no discussion of this issue anywhere Highland can be taken at face value without the song.

The tape begins during the “Firebird Suite” introduction before the band segues with “Parallels.” The first song sets the tone for the entire vision of the band for this tour. The angular chords are very muscular giving a soundtrack to the futuristic artwork on the album cover and on stage, serving as a direct contrast to the crab nebula stage design and jazzy, discordant contribution of Moraz on the previous tours. After a curt “good evening” from Anderson they start into “I’ve Seen All Good People” followed by another classic “Close To The Edge.”

“Thank you very much. Thank you. Here in Detroit. Looking good. We just released an album called Going For The One. We had such a great time making it, we hope you enjoy listening to it, really. Here’s a song which came from that album. It’s called ‘Wondrous Stories.’” Wakeman’s keyboards cut out about two minutes into the piece for about thirty seconds leaving Squire to carry the melody on the bass. Before “Colours Of The Rainbow” Anderson says, “Here’s something that, a long, long time ago, this song came via a very beautiful woman, Miss Nina Simone. It just came along and…” Nina Simone is the singer who covered “The Beautiful Land” from the musical The Roar Of The Greasepaint – The Smell Of The Crowd from which this little song is taken.

Afterwards Anderson meditates upon the lyrics of the next song, saying: “Thank you. That was a song from our new album and it’s called ‘The Turn of The Century.’ Coming quickly to terms of all expression laid / emotion revealed as the ocean maid / all complete in the sight of seeds of life with you / coo coo ca choo.” (The final bit could be a recitation from The Beatles’ “I Am The Walrus.”) Wakeman’s keyboards sound strange during “The Preacher The Teacher” section of the song. Yes play two encores this evening. “Starship Trooper” features an insane dual between Howe and Wakeman in the Würm section. High Vibration Ship was released in 1999 and contains an amazing show in a very good audience recording and stands alongside all of the other great Going For The One silver titles.

Thanks to Mesquite for the original seed!

This is a high-quality recording , much better than that of the first night in Detroit, but Yes sounded like they needed a laxative. Turned out the tape ran about 40 cents too slow. There were a couple of tiny gaps that I cut out, as well as an odd "bumping" sound in several places, usually during applause. The tape also had some auto-level artifacts - loud bass would pull down the level of all the other instruments. This was reversed by painstaking manual edits in Sound Forge. A gap in "Wondrous Stories" was removed by quickly cross-fading between the two ragged ends, which smooths out the transition that was probably caused by a tape flip. An abrupt cut in the applause following this song was smoothed out with some transplanted applause from another spot in the tape.

The result is one of the best recordings of Yes on the GFTO tour.

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 '77 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.

Here is a wonderful snapshot of YES in their prime, featuring the band in 1977 and 1976, all from first-generation tapes. These are both very fine shows, EX- sound quality for the 1977 and EX sound quality for the 1976. The same taper did both shows and used great equipment, as the results show. One song sample provided for each show (Going for the One-1977 & Heart of the Sunrise-1976). 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.

Cobo Hall, Detroit-August 23, 1977-1st Gen Tape. None of this has ever been officially released.
Lineup:
Jon Anderson
Steve Howe
Chris Squire
Rick Wakeman
Alan White

Setlist:

Disc One: (68:15)
1.01 Firebird Suite ~ Parallels (7.24)
1.02 I've Seen All Good People (8.01)
1.03 Close To The Edge (21.00)
1.04 Wonderous Stories (4.32)
1.05 Colours Of The Rainbow ~ Turn Of The Century (9.42)
1.06 Tour Song ~ And You And I (10.59)
1.07 Going For The One (6.33)

Disc Two: (44:02)
2.01 Awaken (20.40)
2.02 Starship Trooper (13.51)
2.03 Roundabout (9.29)

AND, AS AN EXTRA BONUS:

Cobo Hall, Detroit-August 17, 1976-1st Gen Tape.

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.

The lineup is the same, except Patrick Moraz is on keyboards, not Rick Wakeman.

Excellent, sharp recording!

Disc Three: (48:36)

Equipment troubles in Atlanta brought a few unforeseen additions - and a notable deletion – from the usual setlist of the GFTO tour. Steve Howe’s pedal steel was not functioning when it came time to play “And You And I,” so Jon held down the fort with an improvised tour song – the first one of this tour - and an unplanned rendition of “Leaves of Green” while the techs tried to get the instrument working. After delaying for several minutes, the band launched into “And You And I” without the usual bombastic introduction, and Steve played the pedal steel parts on his guitar – a precursor to Trevor Rabin’s rendition! Since the pedal steel is central to the title track of the new album, it was dropped from the set. Two weeks into the tour, “Going for the One” had only been performed once, on August 23, in Detroit.

The recording quality is good overall, but would probably benefit from a new digital transfer with better equipment. Sound is clear and up-front, which is nice considering that The Omni is primarily a basketball arena.

Sometimes it can take me a while to get around to listening to stuff I download... 10 years ago I downloaded a copy of this show entitled "7 From 77", which I believe also circulates as "TheTooleMan 2002 Edition", and just now got around to comparing it to a copy of this show I received in snail mail trade eons ago. While they're both from the same source, I think my copy sounds significantly better, plus "7 from 77" tests lossy... Only downside is the brief cut during "Starship Trooper". In any case, I hope this is an upgrade for many of you.

If only the best performances and best recordings coincided! What we have here is one of the best performances of the GFTO tour. Wakeman is in top form, and really up in the mix. Jon Anderson is in excellent voice this night; he even makes “Going for the One” sound effortless. Alan White is truly energized. Steve Howe gets lost a couple of times, as does Jon once or twice, but Chris pulls them back on course. There are a couple of flubs that bring you back to earth, but overall the audience and band are in a rare groove.

The recording quality is good most of the time. There are a few spots where the tape sounds especially worn, but the biggest problem is bass distortion during some of the heaviest parts of the Yes repertoire. It’s still listenable, and I enjoyed the show from beginning to end.

Comments:

My girlfriend and I taped this "Going for the One" tour show using her compact
cassette recorder inside her large purse. We had second row seats, right in
front of Rick Wakeman. I only traded this show a couple times, so it's
relatively rare. There has been no remastering (a skill I don't have), so feel
free to fix it up and repost it (please!).

By request here is another Going For The One show. I had this show on CD and when I listened to it I found that there was some distortion in the right channel that sounded like the bass was clipping. I then looked thru my tapes and found it there as well so I decided to redo the whole thing. The tape did not seem to have the distortion, but I could tell that a lot of work needed to be done on this baby to get it into shape.

Remastering notes (caveat - I am not a professional):
The right channel needed a volume boost and some EQ to bring up the highs. Then there was some small fixes to be made between songs and to clean up some cuts. Then the whole thing needed some EQ'ing for overall bass and highs. A 'clapping' reduction was made to get rid of a lot of annoying loud applause.. After that the audio compression was done to bring out the vocals and then an overall compression for 16-bit mastering. Finally pitch correction to get the speed right. Voila!

Notes about the show:
This is not a complete show. The tour song and And You & I are missing. There are some cuts in some songs as noted in the setlist and some in-between song chatter missing as well. My tape had Going For The One in the wrong place presumably so the whole thing would fit on one 90 minute cassette. Also, it is possible that the last half of Awaken is from a different source or show as the pitch was completely opposite of the rest of the show. It fits nicely in there, but who knows. I don't know what gen the show is, but its quite good. Also interesting is the mix. I had a hard time determining where the taper was. The vocals sound quite low in the mix most of the time and the bass is up front. Also, the acoustic guitar in Turn Of the Century is very prominent and its interesting to hear little nuances you don't normally hear. The crowd is exhuberant to say the least, especially near the taper.

What DOINKER wrote:

It has to be said that some artists are so restless and talented that they are never satisfied with simply playing their older tunes in concert. They stretch out in ways most other artists are unable to conceive of. I don't mean that they improvise by diddling with the chords (hey, I *like* the word "diddling". It's in the masturbation family, but it's not nearly as seedy in meaning). Yes look for so-called new ways to invent the wheel. The group wants to expand their sound and not to always play the same, and you get treated to something special almost every time you listen to them live.

Yes re-invent themselves on an as-needed basis. This means that you can never be sure the performance you hear will match your expectations, it will always be different. The fact that this concert is thirty-two years old and that it sounds fresh and uncontrived is proof of that process at work.

That's the purpose of listening to live concert material, isn't it?

An amazingly good Yes concert. Nice recording, too. Thanks to Doinker for turning me on to this one. Fresh Yes material is a rare treat.

The 1977 "Going for the One" tour was a nice time for Yes. The band seemed to be in a joyous mood, the fans were glad to see
Wakeman back, and the music was fresh and beautiful.

The original tape had a couple of cuts that I patched using repeated verses from other spots in the same song. The master tapes are mono. The "CD" version was
enhanced with a small amount of "Acoustic Mirror" to give a bit more depth to the sound stage. This 24 bit, 48 kHz version of the recording was also patched, but
was left as mono to retain more of the original character of the recording.

Enjoy the experience.

What DOINKER wrote:

Donovan is really, REALLY into the songs he's singing during this set. It's not just a concert, it's a true 1960's "happening" right in the middle of the disco era, with none of the nostalgia one might experience if the concert took place today. That's sort of a contradiction, especially if you lived during both the 1960's and '70's but hey that's the way this concert is. Today, people performing "hippie" acts they did in the 1960's can seem like they are doing shtick (look that word up, it's real), but Donovan still exudes warmth and even more so during this show.

Many thanks to TheTooleMan for bringing the best out in this recording. Also hats off to Bill B. for supplying the tape.

Of all the people who opened for Yes, Donovan has to be the most apt. Wish I'd been there myself.

The PA is quiet and the audience is pretty lively while Donovan is on stage. Still, the songs and Donovan's vibe put me in a good mood this morning.

Half the songs in Donovan's set come from his 1977 album, "Donovan." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donovan_%28album%29

I could imagine Donovan subbing for Jon Anderson in today's incarnation of Yes, singing Starship Trooper with his "Hurdy Gurdy Man" vibrato. Think about it.

If you've ever heard a shortwave radio, the first track may remind you of a broadcast from a distant continent that's slowly fading in and out. Maybe that continent is Atlantis, and the distance is not just geographic but temporal, as we adjust our dials and fine tune the signal coming to us, for the first time, from a distance of over three decades. Hail Atlantis.

What DOINKER wrote:

It has to be said that some artists are so restless and talented that they are never satisfied with simply playing their older tunes in concert. They stretch out in ways most other artists are unable to conceive of. I don't mean that they improvise by diddling with the chords (hey, I *like* the word "diddling". It's in the masturbation family, but it's not nearly as seedy in meaning). Yes look for so-called new ways to invent the wheel. The group wants to expand their sound and not to always play the same, and you get treated to something special almost every time you listen to them live.

Yes re-invent themselves on an as-needed basis. This means that you can never be sure the performance you hear will match your expectations, it will always be different. The fact that this concert is thirty-two years old and that it sounds fresh and uncontrived is proof of that process at work.

That's the purpose of listening to live concert material, isn't it?

What TheTooleMan wrote:

An amazingly good Yes concert. Nice recording, too. Thanks to Doinker for turning me on to this one. Fresh Yes material is a rare treat.

The 1977 "Going for the One" tour was a nice time for Yes. The band seemed to be in a joyous mood, the fans were glad to see
Wakeman back, and the music was fresh and beautiful.

The original tape had a couple of cuts that I patched using repeated verses from other spots in the same song. The master tapes are mono, but this version was
enhanced with a small amount of "Acoustic Mirror" to give a bit more depth to the sound stage. The 24 bit, 48 kHz version of this recording was also patched, but
was left as mono to retain more of the original character of the recording.

Enjoy the experience.

After seeing the other 2 seeds of this show, one the original and then the remaster, I dug out my version of the show and compared it. Lo and behold its an alternate source and complete to boot (no pun intended). The differences of this show and the other one are: 1) complete show, 2) no patches to any songs, 3) Firebird Suite intro is complete. I tweaked the audio some as usual and speed corrected. The bass pedals were a little too much for the taper's mics so they are a bit saturated, but not enough to make it bad.

I got this is in a CD trade at some point a few years back so I have no idea of the lineage. It appears to be couple of gens due to the speed being off.

The date 7-7-7 marked the 30th anniversary of the release of Going For The One, reuniting the "Classic Yes Line-up," so I thought it would be fun to seed the shows I have in my collection on or near the dates of their 30th anniversaries.

This is a recording of the first of two nights Yes played in Oakland, according to the taper, ghobish. It was originally dated the 22nd, but has since been corrected. This torrent name and the notes in this description have been edited, but the info files in the torrent have not been changed and still reflect the wrong date, 1977-09-22.

Quality is slightly improved from the recording that was downloaded by a friend who gave it to me. (See "Original Info.txt" for more information.) I found the files I received to have some clipping, which I removed. It also ran a little slow (flat), so I raised the pitch of the recording by 50 cents and moved the track boundaries closer to the beginning of songs.

According to the original info file, And You And I and Awaken are both patched from "the Chicago show," which may have been either 1977-09-02 or 1977-09-03. I could not find the point at which the patch is inserted.

ORIGINAL INFO:

Yes 1977-9-22 Oakland Colosseum Arena, Oakland, CA          (NOTE: INCORRECT DATE)

This recording has never been distributed before. It was recorded on an early mono Sony Recording Walkman (undefeatable AGC, sorry) from the audience in the fairly cavernous Oakland Colosseum Arena (about 1/3 back & halfway up, stage left risers), hence it is not a great recording. Certainly listenable though, I give it a C+, though it rises to about a B in many spots. There are some dropouts on the master, and the ends of "Awaken" and "And You And I" had to be patched due to batteries running out. (The patches came from a boot of the Chicago show on the same tour.) The encore of "Roundabout" was (of course) performed at this show but did not get recorded.

There are also a few distracting audience noises & clearly audible comments, the most egregious being the moron who yells out "Hey Wakeman, do a sola!" during the quiet part of "Awaken."

Despite these flaws, it is an excellent performance and Yes collectors will find it enjoyable. If there is a better recording of this same performance, I'd love to hear it. I will post a few samples in a bit.

A couple of thoughts on this performance:

1. I was outraged, OUTRAGED I tell you, that tickets for this show went for the then oh-so-steep price of $7.50. Why, I had never paid more than $6 for a show in my life to that point! If only I knew then what I know now!

2. The laser & light show at this performance was hands down the best I'd seen at a rock show before or since. During Awaken, the laser beams generated seemed to mimic the art of the lines on the "Going For The One" album cover. Simply outstanding. (It is at that point that you can hear the guy next to me admonishing the moron next to him for taking flash pictures of the light show, blinding about half the row. Exactly what did he think would come out on that photograph?) I saw the show the next night and there was no laser show; maybe it was broken, but I never saw lasers at a Yes show again. Someone suggested that they stopped using them for fear of a lawsuit. Can anyone verify if lasers were used on any date from this tour on or after 9/24/77?

When Yes headed for Switzerland to begin work on the follow-up album to “Relayer”, few could have predicted the changes that were about to occur. Ironically, it was Swiss-born keyboard player Patrick Moraz who would be at the center of yet another chapter of Yes internal turmoil, Despite receiving high praise for his work on the album “Relayer”, Moraz had felt restrained within the confines of the Yes fold and artistic differences resulted in open conflict between him and his band mates. Eventually, the axe was dropped and he was literally expelled from the band. This left Yes without a keyboard player and no new album in nearly two years. The prospects were not looking good, but then, who should arrive, but ….Rick Wakeman !

It is undeniable that the “Relayer” album remains one of the band’s finest works and that Patrick Moraz’ contribution to Yes was enormous for the short time that he was in the band. But for the die-hard fans, the earlier incarnation of Yes with Rick Wakeman was considered THE classic line-up. For all his brilliance and fine work, Patrick Moraz could never match the enormous popularity of Wakeman. Having Rick re-join the band was probably the best move that Yes could have made. Work on a new album could now begin.

Was it the band’s happiness to see Rick return, Wakeman’s enthusiasm for re-joining his old friends, or perhaps a little of both? We will never know for sure, but the fact remains that the work during those few weeks in a Swiss studio was nothing less than stellar. Energy and creativity must have been at high levels because Yes emerged with one of their finest albums to date, “Going For The One”. With such an impressive collection of new material, Yes were more than ready to go out and meet their fans again. The “Going For The One” tour began on July 30th, 1977, and ended on December 6th of the same year, drawing sold-out crowds each and every night. The set list was built around the new album, all five songs of which were often played, but also retained some cherished Yes classics such as ‘Close To The Edge’, ‘And You And I’, ‘Starship Trooper’ and ‘Roundabout’.

Sadly, even though the “Going For The One” show was performed 89 times, none of these concerts were recorded for broadcast purpose, that we know of did record at least one of their shows since part of a 1977 show did appear on the “Yesshows” live album. Still, no other soundboard recording from that tour is available. To hear a complete performance from the 1977 tour, fans would have to turn to audience recordings.

There are many such shows recordings available but, unfortunately, very few are of good quality. PRRP has released remastered versions of the Göthenburg and Providence shows, but the one that we bring you now, we humbly believe, is the best audience-recorded concert from the 1977 tour to have surfaced thus far. And we can thank Mr. Mike Millard for that.

Mike Millard was a rock music fan who lived in the Los Angeles area and had a particular interest in live music performances. Fortunately for us he also had excellent recording equipment. To elude security Mike would smuggle the equipment into the venue in the base of his wheelchair. Was Mike truly confined to a wheelchair or did he only use it as a prop? We don’t know for sure, but the fact remains that, prop or not, a wheelchair was an ideal place to conceal the recording gear. Millard, who always used the best quality cassette tapes available, seemingly had the knack for finding the perfect spot from which to record because his recordings usually show an almost perfect sound balance (perhaps another fringe benefit of the wheelchair use?). Some of the best live recordings of The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Yes from that time period, we owe to Mike Millard’s ingenuity and patience. Sadly, Mike passed away in 1990, but his legacy lives on. A number of his master recordings still exist in one form or another, including one of this amazing Yes performance at the LA Forum. We have done our best to minimize the minor flaws that exist in this master to bring you the very best Yes experience from 1977. Since Mike supported trading and loathed bootleg sellers, we are sure that he would approve of this new PRRP release, produced to enhance his great work. Enjoy !

Notes from the Re-Master
We began with a lossless version of Mike Millard’s master tape. The whole show is here but we suspect a few cuts from tape flips do exist in the tape, just well hidden. There is no missing music. As with most Mike Millard recordings the quality and frequency response are outstanding for the era. Mike must have also positioned himself in the perfect spot within the venue as the balance is even and there is no significant distant, delay effect. Still, the acoustics of the forum can be appreciated.
When listening to the master, it is obvious that the audience is quite vocal, even during periods when the music is playing. Dynamic filters were used to reduce this audience “contribution” to the overall sound. The next major problem was speed. The whole recording had an obvious speed error. Studio and live commercial references were used to calculate this speed error and correct it. The result is a much different sound than the original. Tonality is always affected by speed corrections but even after the speed correction additional tonality adjustment was necessary to balance the sound. Again, commercial live references were used to help in this process.
As good as Mr. Millard’s equipment was, it still seemed to suffer from auto-record level technology. This meant that intermittent suppressions were found after loud sections that needed to be restored. Hiss was also present and annoying in certain sections. This was reduced. Clicks and pops were removed or repaired where present and finally, the show was re-tracked to avoid sector boundary errors.

Other versions of this show have been posted here before. This is not a re-seed or re-hash of those, but an entirely new upgrade from the master tapes. If you want more of these excellent Yes 1977 CA master recordings by Mike Millard, the Long Beach 26/09/77 master posted previously is still on the tracker, see: http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?returnto=%2Faccount-cp.php&id=143340

On several occasions before he passed away, Millard let a close friend come to his residence and transfer a number of his masters to dat while they were hanging out. This show is one of those master > dat transfers.

This is Mike's mint, raw master. Please note that it has not been equalized or remastered. Since I do not have any boots of this show, I cannot comment on how it compares to them. To me the sound quality is excellent, but as always, song samples are provided so that you can decide for yourself. As many of you already know, Millard's recordings are known for their quality.

09. Repair many audible gaps and single channel dropouts
10. Adjust dynamics
11. Light noise reduction
12. Re-track given 14 songs in 10 source files.****

Notes
This remaster should be considered an upgrade to the PRRPSAE 05 version. More advanced software and techniques were used during this project. A great deal of time was devoted to repairing or removing as many clicks, pops and other tape errors as possible, using non-destructive techniques. The audience noise and loud claps were more extensively addressed in this version.
*18 segments were found to have an abrupt, audible amplitude boost of 3-6dB. The volume of the sound and the hiss both clearly increased in these segments. These were corrected, eliminating this distraction.
**The recording system made frequent adjustments to record volume such as attenuation after a loud clap. These were corrected as much as possible.
***The crowd was very enthusiastic that night. Frequently yells, loud claps and whistles were present during the songs. Where present, they were repaired or attenuated as much as possible. Most applause found between songs was left unaltered.
****Remove redundant sections and track as continuous show.

Suggested CD Burn: CD1 Tracks 1-9, CD2 Tracks 10-14

REMASTERED by TheTooleMan, September 2007

The date 7-7-7 marked the 30th anniversary of the release of Going For The One, reuniting the "Classic Yes Line-up," so I thought it would be fun to seed the shows I have in my collection on or near the dates of their 30th anniversaries.

Audience recording by Mike Millard, remastered 2007 by TheTooleMan
Lineage: tape (unknown gear, unknown generation) -> DAT-> -> FLAC -> Sound Forge -> FLAC

Here's an excellent quality recording from Mike Millard, torrented by Mesquite on Dimeadozen just a few weeks ago. Yes is playing their hearts out,
but the volume level in The Forum is low, the crowd is rowdy, and the audio mix favors Chris Squire's bass for most of the show. If you are interested in listening closely to Fishy, here's your best chance yet.

This remaster helps the mix somewhat by pulling up the levels of the rest of the band. A number of small drop-outs were eliminated and one big speed variation in Awaken was flattened out with a little creative editing. The recording was equalized to brighten it up a little.

I must report that there were some howler monkeys in the audience on this particular evening. One was especially close to the microphones and tended to emit a loud G sharp for extended periods when excited. At the beginning of one particularly stimulating song, his pitch increased to A natural. To reduce his dominance, I set the parametric equalizer for his frequency and reduced the volume of his howling by -10 db. But he is still quite audible. I wonder if this sound was the poor creature's mating call, and if he was successful in finding a mate on this evening. I rather doubt it.

Special thanks to Mesquite for his thoughtfulness in providing the high-quality DAT copy of the original tape in time for this anniversary remaster.

In keeping with the Tooleman's 30th GFTO Anniversary project, here is another show (30 years ago tonight). This is the second night at the L.A. Forum and the quality is quite good (maybe not as good as night one). I got this in a trade years ago and pulled it out, dusted it off, and remastered it. This is the complete show except for the end of Awaken being cut off (I guess the taper ran out of tape).

The Nightbird Alison Steele, late-night disc jockey and major Yes fan, interviewing members of Yes for her syndicated "Nightbird and Company" radio show. "Nightbird and Company" was a program distributed to radio stations around the world on vinyl LP's (this was the 70's, after all). Brought to you by the National Guard and the Army Reserve.

Back in 2002, Mike Healy pulled together a bunch of material which I cleaned up and assembled.

Each Nightbird program was numbered. The exact air date and number of the Steve Howe program has been lost, but it was probably in the 200 series.

These programs are in this set. Some of the commercials distributed with the program are included, too.

1.51-1.55 #334 (September 25, 1977) Steve & Rick Part 2 (8.24)

An important footnote: Alison Steele died on September 27, 1995, of stomach cancer. In an article published at http://www.grubstreet.ca/articles/bio/alisonsteele.htm, author JF Hafer states,

"Afraid of losing her medical insurance and job, which paid the bills, Steele didn’t speak publicly about her illness. Using the guise of vacations, she had surgery and chemotherapy. She knew management wouldn’t understand. She’d lose her job. She’d lose her medical insurance, if she lost her job. She had to pay the bills."

The entertainment business can be brutal. But sadly, in the 13 years since the Nightbird passed away, little has changed about the state of health insurance in the United States. Today, loss of employment can still mean loss of health insurance. The number one reason for personal bankruptcy in the United States today is debt due to expensive medical bills which cannot be repaid. With the impending election, candidates are making a lot of promises about changing the status quo, but can they be trusted to act on their promises? And will their plans help not just the employed, but the unemployed, too? Tax deductions on medical insurance are no help if you're too poor to pay taxes.

Remaster by TheTooleMan April, 2007 from DAT transfer of Mike Millard's original recording,
as seeded by Mesquite at:

http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=143340

Lineage: Master tape>dat>dat>cd-r>Bias Peak Pro 5.2.1>XACT>flac > Mesquite's torrent > Sound Forge 7 > FLAC

This is NOT the same remaster as the one found in the "7 From 77" set I produced a few years ago. The original source of that recording was not the DAT copy, either. This version is superior.

Having a great source like the one seeded by Mesquite is a lot of fun to work with. But I found a few small problems which detract from the excellence of the recording. These are fixed in this version:

- several tiny gaps throughout the recording, each lasting only a few milliseconds
- low-frequency "thumps" in some quiet passages during "Awaken"
- volume level adjustments at the beginning of the recording, during "Firebird Suite" and "Parallels"
- cuts in applause between tracks

The levels of the extreme high and low ends of the frequency spectrum were increased, to give the recording more impact. The dynamic range of the audio was adjusted to bring out the music above the crowd noise. Several tracks were separated to mark the start and end of individual songs which were combined in one track in the master recording.

No music or crowd noise was cut from the original recording, other than a second or two of applause and ambient sound in the arena between tracks, which was either faded in or out or cross-faded with other noise to smooth out a cut in the source. Most of the applause before the encore was not recorded.

With these small edits and enhancements, listeners can even better appreciate the quality of Millard's recording and the performance by Yes!

-------------
To, again, celebrate the 30th anniversary of Yes's Going For The One album / tour, here is a show from the master tapes. This was recorded by a friend of mine, Tommy P., who supplied the trading, via myself, of many Memphis Yes shows. This show has been 'remastered' by me (twice actually) and I think I got it the way it should be this time. IMHO this is one of the better sounding shows of this tour and is marred by the fact that Yes only played Roundabout as an encore. There was no Starship Trooper. Maybe Tommy can shed some light on this as to why that was. The recording itself is quite good, but as with most recordings of the 70's there are some bad bits. I've tried to fix some bad spots and there are some very minor tape drags here and there. Overall, this is one of my favorites. I beleive the Tooleman will be reseeding my New Orleans show in a day or so to wrap up the US portion of the tour.

Whoops! Forgot I had this Crappy Master. This should be my last in the series. A little bit of a sad story goes with this show. My wife and I made the 3 hour trip to New Orleans without tickets to the show, but I was confident I would find a scalper and I was willing to pay a fair sum for a pair. The doors to the auditorium were not open yet and there were a gazillion people milling around outside. Eventually I found a pair of tickets and paid double the face value ($30 for the pair; hey, it was 1977). Soon the doors opened to the place and everyone pushed and shoved their way to get in and my pregnant wife was nearly crushed in the crowd. People were screaming at each other and glass doors were broken as well. It was festival seating (for those that don't know what that was, it meant every man for himself to get a good seat). Anyway to make a long story short, 2 days later my wife miscarried and to this day blames the commotion at the show. The good news is we had 4 kids after that, all healthy.

Besides being recorded with crappy equipment, the crowd noise is pretty bad. The first CD opens with a scream from the drunk sitting behind us. He proceeds to scream for no apparent reason all during the show until at one pont he loses his voice. Its sort of humorous and you'll get to hear it. He tries hard, but nothing comes out.

YES

The Best of Wembley 1977

Original stereo cassettes recorded by Mick Dillingham and Steve Darton
Tapes provided by Mick Dillingham
Mastered by TheTooleMan August 2005, Art by Jamie Lockhead

Mick and Steve recorded several of Yes week-long stand at Wembley in 1977. I've selected some of the most powerful and clearly-recorded performances of each song of the nightly set.

Our intrepid recordists captured the entire concerts of October 26 through 29, and Starship Trooper and Roundabout from the October 24 show. The two tracks from the 24th were previously torrented along with a Rick Wakeman recording from January 18, 1974. They have been mixed a little differently for this collection.

No other tapes of some of these dates have surfaced, and others were incomplete and of lesser audio quality.

While this is not a bad recording, it is not a complete show. I dug this out of my tape collection and since it was the only Wembley show not inlcuded in the Tooleman's 1977 Wembley Collection I decided to clean it up and seed it. Now we have representative shows from all the Wembley nights on the Gong For The One tour. I don't know the lineage of the tape, but it appears to be at least a couple generations, probably more (an upgrade would be nice). This version runs about 60 minutes.

This collection is dedicated to the memory of my son, Danny Toole, who saw his first Yes concert at age 10, and afterward met Steve Howe and shook hands with Jon Anderson. Danny passed away on October 21 at the age of 20, as the result of an accidental fall. He touched many lives with his brilliance during his short time on Earth. His true potential was only beginning to be realized. Danny forever enriched the lives of his mother, his brother Eric, and me. He will remain in our hearts forever.

This is obviously only the first 68+ minutes of this show.
So the next obvious questions is....does anyone have the rest??
And does any one have a "non-bootleg" source??

This one is dedicated to "Gromek" & "Lestat" for the past amazing work they did on my "Chord Of Life" LP
Feel free to do your magic again!

I will let the artist & their music speak for themselves.

Comments from YOU, the listener will be much more interesting.

ENJOY THE MUSIC!

The date 7-7-7 marked the 30th anniversary of the release of Going For The One, reuniting the "Classic Yes Line-up," so I thought it would be fun to seed the shows I have in my collection on or near the dates of their 30th anniversaries.

This collection is dedicated to the memory of my son, Danny Toole, who saw his first Yes concert at age 10, and afterward met Steve Howe and shook hands with Jon Anderson. Danny passed away on October 21 at the age of 20, as the result of an accidental fall. He touched many lives with his brilliance during his short time on Earth. His true potential was only beginning to be realized. Danny forever enriched the lives of his mother, his brother Eric, and me. He will remain in our hearts forever.

NOTE: the front jewel case art, when properly arranged, creates a large-scale work.

So travel back 30 years, the UK leg of the Going For The One tour is under way, and here is night 2 of a 3-night stint in Stafford, UK. The recording, got CDs in a trade, was just an 'ok' recording which I tweaked, of course, to bring out what best I could. Its at least a 2nd generation if not more. As an added bonus I have included a 20 minute backstage interview with Steve Howe recorded by the brother of a fellow UK taper from way back. I don't believe this interview has ever been circulated (it was conducted for print I think).

Audio tweaks: channel volume fluctuations, EQ, audio compression for voice, speed correction, remove hum at 83hz

Going for the One Tour
Glasgow, Scotland
1977-11-08

This is the ONLY KNOWN SOUNDBOARD recording from the Going For The One tour!

The date 7-7-7 marked the 30th anniversary of the release of Going For The One, reuniting the "Classic Yes Line-up," so I thought it would be fun to seed the shows I have in my collection on or near the dates of their 30th anniversaries.

Video soundtrack, thought to be soundboard
Lineage: SOUNDBOARD -> video tape -> audio CD -> Sound Forge -> FLAC

This soundtrack was on two CD's. Each CD contained one continuous track. All I did was break them up by track, sector aligned them, and converted the WAV files to mono to reduce the size of the torrent. The original recording is mono, so nothing was lost here. Buzz, hum, speed variations, and drunken Scotsmen abound. Have fun with it, if you're inclined to try to improve it or just enjoy a certain amount of masochism.

Hopefully the video will be seeded. I thought I had a copy, but no such luck. I have seen the video - it's all shot from a single camera and a bit boring, but it's a document of what people saw on the tour, and for that it stands as an important artifact. There are color and B&W versions of the video. This soundtrack comes from a color version.

I have no idea who seeded this originally, no name
was mentioned in the original info file (included).

I expect i got this from Dime, but it is also
possible that it comes from a different site.

All credits go to the original seeder!

Everything in this torrent is exactly the way it was
originally seeded, nothing has been changed, except
for this reseed info file you are now reading and the
torrent folder title (just to make it a bit clearer)!

Originally the folder was called:
'Yes - Oslo 1977 (In The Hall Of Mount Ekeberg)'

Originally mastered for inclusion with the "7 From 77" set, this show was dropped
in favor of the recently uncovered Milwaukee show of September 1, 1977. In hindsight,
that might have been a bad idea, since the audio quality of this show is excellent.

But WTF! When one of you guys gets a time machine, let me know.

Art produced for this show as part of the "7 From 77" set is included in the torrent.

Going for the One Country of Switzerland?
            Yes were off to Switzerland to record their new album, Going for the One. It was an
escape from the tax man and the familiar surroundings of England. Patrick Moraz made the trip
with Yes, back to his home country but did not stay with the band once they arrived. Things
were just not working out between him and his band mates. Rick Wakeman was brought in to take
over the keyboards again and the band was off! Skiing in the morning, recording in the afternoon;
this was the typical day for them at the time. These recording sessions would produce one of
the very best Yes albums ever! With plans to move back to a song oriented album Jon still
directed the band in the production of one of their most impressive epics of all time: ‘Awaken’.

In an interview in 1977, Jon said, “…I had a chance to read a book called ‘The Singer’. It’s
about this Star Song which is an ageless hymn that’s sung every now and again and that inspired
this song. It’s also influenced by a book I read recently about the life of Rembrandt...” The
song is also noteworthy for how it was recorded. Rick Wakeman was required to produce church
organ for this piece. However, the only way to get this sound was to use a real church organ,
located 10 miles from the studio. A rather unique way of recording this instrument was devised,
they used a telephone line. As Rick recalls, “We did it that way because that’s the way things
are done in Switzerland… Their telephone lines are the highest fidelity you can imagine…So we
rented a phone line, I put on the cans (headphones) and away we went. The pipe organ was
recorded direct into the studio. I listened back over the cans, drove back to the studio, cut a
little overdub and that was it.”
The tour to promote the album began with a performance in Toledo, Ohio July 30, 1977. Yes travers
ed the United States playing 55 shows to sold out venues night after night. Many who attended
were pleased to see Rick back with the band. The new material was well received both during the
shows and on the charts of the time.  In July of 1977 the album reached number one in England
and number 8 in the U.S. After the tour of the states Yes returned to Europe to continue their
tour; thirty-six cities in 45 days, a grueling schedule to say the least.
With some 68 shows under their belt on this tour, the band could do no wrong as they reached
Gothenburg, Sweden on November 12, 1977. The concert featured on this PRRP release presents Yes
at the height of their performance skill. The old material like ‘Close to the Edge’ is polished
and performed flawlessly but still there is room for Steve and Rick to add some slight variation
to their leads. At this point in the tour, the band is also very comfortable with the new
material which they deliver with confidence and power. The spirits of the band also appear to be
brighter as old conflicts have been put aside. Jon now feels comfortable adding the
light-hearted ‘Colors of the Rainbow’ and the comedic ‘Rachmoninov’s piano concerto’ routine to
the set. This last bit with Rich is reminiscent of the Peter Gabriel skits of Genesis. The more
difficult days of the Tales From Topographic Oceans tour have been left behind and the band is
bursting with new found energy. So listen closely and you will hear some of the best music ever
performed by the band called Yes!

Notes from the Re-Master
This is a wonderful audience recording of a great Yes performance. The taping was probably made
from the middle of the performance theater because the acoustics of the room are quite apparent.
The audience is quite respectful so there is little in the way of talking or excessive clapping.
The quality of the recording is quite good. Viable music signal was found up to 14,000 Hz
during the bell tones of ‘Awaken’. The noise level was moderate but noise was easily identified
within the spectrum and reduced. Many brief buzz/pop artifacts were also found and manually
removed.
            The complete show is here with the exception of three gaps that arise during the
taping. The first gap occurs at 43 minutes into the show, during ‘Turn of the Century”. The
break is 19 seconds long so it is likely a tape flip. The second occurs at the beginning of
‘Roundabout’ and is only 15 seconds long but its actual length is unknown because applause
precedes it. Again, this is thought most likely to be a tape flip break but another gap is
found in ‘Roundabout’ lasting 1 minute and 23 seconds. Whether there was a switch in tapes or
taping problems will never be known. All three gaps were patched using segments of a Yes show
from Long Beach California September 26, 1977. This source was chosen because it is also an
audience recording with similar acoustics and is less than two months before this current show.

            Finally, the show needed re-tracking because many songs were grouped together. The
‘Firebird Suite’ was separated from the first song ‘Parallels’ and ‘Colors of the Rainbow’ was
tracked separate from ‘Wondrous Stories’. On disc two, the brief segment of Rachmoninov’s Piano
concerto was tracked distinct from ‘Going for the One’ and ‘Flight Jam’ was separated from
‘Awaken’.

Master audience recording

This concert I taped so many years ago I can't remember what equipment I used.
I remember it was a big recorder with an included microphone.
I layed the recorder on the ground of the hall right inside the middle of the floor about
15 metres from the stage.
All the people around were sitting down those days.

The sound quality is o.k., I think it is for fans only or those who collect everything.
There are cuts for the tape-flip after "Close to the edge" and in the middle of
"Awakening".

I remember this concert as one of the best in my life if I see it from the point of
how I enjoyed it when I was there.
Today...hmmm??? This is definitive not the music I prefer now.

I don't know if this one was ever seeded here on dime, but I think it is
worth doing it again or - I hope so - seeding it for the first time!!
It could be very rare!!

Lineage: tape (unknown gear, unknown generation) -> Highland bootleg "Soleil Our Sights" -> FLAC -> Sound Forge -> FLAC

This is a not-so-hot recording, released by Highland with one of their nonsense names. Naturally, Highland did nothing to improve the audio on this recording, just spending their funds on the packaging.

I have made some improvements to the audio here, but with bass distortion in loud passages and parts missing from some of the tracks of this recording, there isn't a lot to do to rescue it.

Here are most of the improvements I made:

-Removed 108hz hum throughout recording, up to the start of the encores. The hum was not in the encores, which were also much louder than the rest of the recording. Could they be from a different source?

-Smoothed out volume levels in first two tracks, and balanced levels to consistency throughout recording

-Adjusted track boundaries

-Faded out abrupt cut in Awaken

-Equalized the high and low ends of the audio spectrum

I acquired this in the spring of 2009 and got it out for someone who wanted it in a trade. I figured that others may enjoy this as well. Sonically this one isn't too bad and the performance is enjoyable as well. Why someone put Close To the Edge in 2 parts is beyond me. I tried to piece this together but was unhappy with the results of my work. There was also a bit of static at the very start of the concert that I removed.

Notes Remy:

Got this one from Chris, an American Yes fan. Source unknown.

Track 1 & 2 are from a soundboard recording, the rest is from a audience recording. Sound quality differs per track, sometimes if differs within the track (2.04 Awaken).

There's a gap between track 2.05 & 2.06 ..... so I don't know whether track 2.06 'Yours Is No Disgrace' is actually from this or another show ..... according to Forgotten Yesterdays they played 'Starship Trooper' as the last song of this concert.....

LDB Special Series #450

Out of my 17,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the
musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I'd like to propose you. Most of these come from my
cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won't be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my
reward for all the work involved in this project.

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

1977-12-01

The date 7-7-7 marked the 30th anniversary of the release of Going For The One, reuniting the "Classic Yes Line-up," so I thought it would be fun to seed the shows I have in my collection on or near the dates of their 30th anniversaries.

Lineage: audience -> audio CD -> Sound Forge -> FLAC

This is a decent-sounding stereo recording, with some hiss. It is incomplete, missing "Firebird Suite" and "Parallels," as well as about 30 seconds of the opening of "And You And I." I don't know if it is from the master tape or a tape copy.

Yes is in good form, heading toward the end of their lengthy tour with a full head of steam. In this performance you can hear them adding some different voicings to the songs in the now-routine setlist. Instruments are clearly distinguishable and performances are excellent. The audience is enthusiastic and attentive, and the band members are enjoying themselves.

If there was a "tour song" played this night, it is not included on my copy of the recording. Forgotten Yesterdays gives lyrics for a tour song which say it is the band's last night in Germany. Also unusual for the tour is the lead-in to "Going for the One," which is not the usual humorous bit with Rick Wakeman, but instead a little country-blues jam.

The original files came to me from my friend Orjan in Sweden. The audio quality would probably benefit from an updated transfer. I don't know if it was released by Highland or is simply a copy from cassette to CD, but there were some differences in the quality of sound in each channel which took a while to resolve. Some of this may have been caused by playback on a less-than-excellent cassette deck, but possibly the age of the tape is also to blame. By the way, that ticking sound in "Country Jam" (disk 2, track 1) is in the original files and is not caused by corrupted FLAC files in the remastered version. And there is a little static or distortion in the left channel at about 5:00 into "Awaken."

Lineage: audience -> Dimeadozen bittorrent -> Sound Forge -> FLAC

This is a good but incomplete recording which starts near the end of "Close to the Edge." I downloaded this recording from Dimeadozen in early 2005 and have only listened to it now, in conjunction with the anniversary of the show.

I actually think this was someone else's remaster of the original recording. There are some changes in volume that sound like someone adjusting recording levels on the fly, perhaps when transferring the cassette to CD. There were some cuts and abrupt jumps in the applause around the encores, and the songs were not in the usual order on the downloaded recording. After checking Forgotten Yesterdays, I decided to put Roundabout and Yours Is No Disgrace in the usual order.

The speed of the downloaded recording was quite fast, and the pitch too high. Channels were not well balanced, and the EQ needed some boosting on the high and low ends. This raised the noise level, of course, and I dealt with it best I could (without NR!). There is also a gap in the final verse of Roundabout, which I filled by patching in the same bars from an earlier verse. With that done, it's now a good listening experience of Yes having fun in France!

Unfortunately, I can't give credit to the person who seeded these files as their name is not in the old torrent's original info file. Art is included from either the seeder or someone else who provided it when it was seeded in 2005.

I have just one more recording in the 30th Anniversary Series: Paris, 1977-12-06, the final show of the tour. It sounds fantastic! I will seed it Thursday, its anniversary date, and it's definitely one to get!

Well, boys and girls, here we have what I think is one of the best shows of the Going For The One tour (this is one I had forgotten about until I listened to it again today). I got this show in a tape trade in the early 80's from one of my UK traders and while I think that this is probably a 2nd gen tape the show is Yes at their full-ahead rock'n'roll steamroller best. The tape was pretty good, but I worked roughly 6 hours or so to get this bad boy in shape and I'm quite pleased with the result. I can't quite give this show an A, but maybe an A-. The recording is very good and the
performance is, well, excellent! At times you'll think you are right at the foot of the stage as the music gets right in your face and every instrument's notes are heard. Steve Howe is on fire, Chris's bass is thunderous, and every drum lick can be heard from Alan. There are even some Wakeman things that I had never heard before such as some synth sound effects during some spots during various songs. I actually like this show better than the Paris 12-6-1977 show that was seeded awhile back (that was a good recording, but cold have used some work). This recording
gives you more of an impression of being there and up close. It also shows you Jon's meek personality during his in-between song talking as its so soft. The all of the sudden you're plunged into a song where his voice just soars above the instruments. The soundman gets it right after the first couple of songs.

This recording had its usual tape problems such as pitch problems and microphone
movement here and there. Here's the lowdown on the work done:
1. pitch corrected
2. channel volumes adjusted
3. EQ applied for high end (could have used a tad more, but turned hissy)
3. EQ applied for low end to 'feel' the bass rather than just hear it
4. bright applause was adjusted or removed
5. applied vinyl restoration to remove some clicks and pops (even though its a tape transfer)
6. readjusted overall volume before compression applied
7. applied compression for voice enhancement
8. applied overall compression for mastering
9. fixed some spots where volume overloaded the microphones and caused some static
10. fixed some minor low-end pops

YES - Paris 5 & 6 December 1977, previously uploaded to Dime but now remastered for more natural sound and speed/pitch correction.

Format: Audience recording ["AR"]

Source: Highland factory boot CD via a different Dime member. Please see original Dime uploader's original text below for further date/venue/setlist/lineup detail

Lineage: Original master [taper] source unknown, but based on careful analysis seems likely made with Nakamichi 550 cassette deck [one of the best available in 1977] > Highland factory boot CD, likely from the original master tapes but deleteriously altered by mixing and what sounds like hasty noise reduction > Good Dime member Gromek, whose original text appears below and we should all be grateful to for original upload no matter what Highland did to his source. Please see his text for his part of lineage > Dime > Rain Livebook L5S media computer via Bit Torrent > original audience tape sound capture analyzed and restored as completely as damaged source would permit with CEP 2.0. 95% resample stretch to match speed and pitch to YESSONGS GFTO tour material and other 1977 Yes ARs also effected with CEP 2.0. Low speed/pitch were probably in the original master tapes before Highland acquired them. No noise reduction attempted in this remaster > FLAC Frontend > Bit Torrent back to Dime

Strengths: As stated above, an exceptional AR for its year and decade. Like even poorer-quality ARs it captures more of what the audience heard and felt than most sterile soundboard-sourced and brutally mixed industry "live" releases do . This one was clearly one of the best for original sound capture and had to have been taped with the speculated Nak 550 or equivalent studio-grade cassette deck of its time, giving us enough to work with to provide a significantly more accurate document of what its Parisian audience actually experienced than the industry-like editing savagery of Highland. A thankfully great deal of the boot factory's destructiveness has been reversed here. Please see 'weaknesses' below for more detail on this.

A series of EQ passes created specifically for ARs was used to restore high frequencies and others in the upper bass spectrum originally flattened by Highland [we can be sure of this because they did it frequently and I have several raw masters to compare their work to]. The main benefits are now highs like percussive metals and certain keyboards sounding like they're right in front of us - just as they did to concert attendees thanks to Yes' superlative sound systems and engineers. So too have midrange items like vocals, deeper layers of Moog synthesizer sound and nonmetal percussives which had all sounded like they were coming through a telephone line after Highland got through with them. Anyone who actually experienced Yes personally knows how coequally important bass guitars and percussion were to the band's melodic structures, and how 'bassy' they were in concert as well as crystal clear in the upper frequencies. This recording is now VERY bassy in addition to being VERY sharp and detailed in the highs. It may not be to some listeners' tastes and some playback systems might not handle it as well, but it is now much closer to the real deal than we could possibly get without risking being eaten by the very ETs most likely to have time-travel technology to offer ;}

As stated above, no noise reduction was applied to this version and while not industry-"quiet" by any means it really wasn't needed. NR work is very dangerous to desired signal in any case and there are examples all over Dime and elsewhere of its destructiveness when carelessly applied. Some evidence of NR work by Highland can be heard in their source discs and it may have done some damage, but in this area at least they didn't do too badly.

Slow speed and pitch in the Highland discs as mentioned may well have been a property of the masters. Studio cassette recorders used in the '70s to get superior ARs were usually adjustable and were often set for lower speed/pitch theoretically in order get more detailed sound capture. Often such ARs then went into circulation without correction, and this one really needed it. Thankfully Yes in Paris '77 can now be heard at their natural tempo and pitch.

Yes' performance in Paris that night was end-of-tour and they were clearly tired, but it was nonetheless vital. While many thought 1974's RELAYER their crown jewel of albums [myself among them], GOING FOR THE ONE was still a masterpiece in an entirely new direction. Reuniting with an old friend [keyboardsman Rick Wakeman] injected its own energy even though much of GFTO was probably cowritten by Patrick Moraz, who many of us Yesnuts regret even in 2007 didn't stay on with Yes through the '70s at least. In any case they were justifiably excited about their new album and Wakeman brought his own evolved, exciting new style to the fold. Together with other European '77 tour dates Paris also witnessed the GOING FOR THE ONE tour's best, most refined moments.

Weaknesses: Inevitable AR tradeoffs - more tape noise, variably uneven sound including pretty severe dropout in places and seems to include some irreversible Highland tinkering.

Many ARs of Yes' 1977 tour are weirdly afflicted by a difficult to describe "pulsing", "rushing" sound in certain of its high frequencies like crash cymbals and resembling some sort of deliberate psychedelic sound effect. This assuredly was not intended or heard by attendees but it's pretty ubiquitous in '77 tour ARs, and to my knowledge impossible to mitigate. In Paris 77 it's quite bad at times, particularly during very busy moments by all members. Hypothetical causes range from a strange interplay between phase shifters in Yes' sound system and the contemporary cassette tape technology to air movement in the venues, but it hasn't been nailed. It does occasionally appear in other tours and a bit of it can even be heard in YESSONGS - possibly an official AR - but it most severely afflicts ARs from the 1977/GFTO tour.

Despite weaknesses this torrent should provide Yes aficionados some real listening pleasure and I hope its new remaster becomes very popular. Please enjoy and reseed often!

Gromek's original text file is just below and includes the unaltered setlist, lineup etc. info. Again thanks to him for making this effort possible to begin with. Artwork also as he provided it. If the original Yes-Paris-77 taper or a friend of theirs sees this - please consider uploading your original, unedited master tapes to Dime and we may be able to turn it into a Holy Grail!

Yes
Going for the One Tour
Pavillon de Paris
Paris, France
December 6, 1977

Contrast clause: this is THE ULTIMATE REMASTER!!!

The date 7-7-7 marked the 30th anniversary of the release of Going For The One, reuniting the "Classic Yes Line-up," so I thought it would be fun to seed the shows I have in my collection on or near the dates of their 30th anniversaries. And now we've arrived at the end of the tour, partying with Yes in the City of Light!

Lineage: audience -> audio cd -> Sound Forge -> FLAC

This recording is nothing short of EXCELLENT! There are nuances in the music that you cannot hear in lesser-quality recordings. Synthesizer patches and guitar effects are awesomely clear. You can even appreciate the flanging effect on the voices singing the "counter-lyrics" in "And You And I" (you know, "Coins and crosses..."). This kind of quality is rare in a 30-year-old tape.

I received this recording in a trade in 2002. It may not be the same version that Highland released, and which Lestat used for his recent remaster. From his description of the audio quality of the Highland recording, this is apparently much better!

Relayerman provided a lot of detail about what he did to enhance the recording of the first night in Paris. Since I did some of the audio work on this recording in 2002, I don't have the same detailed records of everything that was done. The original recording ran slow, so the pitch was flat. I corrected the pitch and balanced the stereo channels, each of which had somewhat different frequency response. Before I was all done, I applied Sonic Foundry (now Sony) Acoustic Mirror, which gives the recording a wider stereo field.

There is a patch in the last 90 seconds of Awaken which I think was in the original recording I received in trade. It's not bad, and it's probably from another average quality recording of the same performance. Relayerman says he has two versions of this show, but I have not confirmed with him whether both have this patch. I worked with the pitch and EQ of the patch to help it blend with the rest of the recording.

Overall, this is one of the most satisfying remastering projects I've undertaken, mostly thanks to the quality of the original recording. If I had deliberately saved the best for last, I still would have chosen this recording and this show.
