***Heart of the Sunrise and Shock to the System removed***
due to them being released official on the YesYears box in 1991.

Lineage: I got this show on VCR tape in trade years ago, but the video isn't worth the trouble transfering due to it probably being a pretty high generation.
I started the transfer with the video tape in a Sony SLV-696HF > Sony Vaio PCG-GRX550 laptop via RCA cables using Line In and Nero Media Player to record the audio. I then transfered files to a modern HP Pavilion for the processing power,and used EAC to process the wav files. I did nothing to change the sound quality, just clean up the edits on each end of the recorded files. There are a couple (two by my count) of tape "jitters" where the video tape screwed up a bit in the transfer (video to video; it's on my copy), but it doesn't detract from the show.
I did check the frequency analysis of a couple tracks, and took a screen shot of one, which is included in this folder.

This torrent is made from a digital copy of a first-generation tape, brief source info - Beyer M-700 > Sony D6 > Cass(1) > CDR(1) > EAC > SF4.5(no EQ) > CDWave > CDR(1) > EAC > FLAC 8 (TLH) > DIME > you, more detail in the notes below, 5th show of the tour, Starship Trooper was rare on this tour, the taper was probably sitting far from the stage, room sound but pretty good for a hockey rink, the crowd can be louder than the band but it is Philly & they know when to be quiet, lots of drums, not much bass & it can be boomy, *close* headphone listening reveals some dropouts, little tics & occasional clipping. Original 2002 cover art included with updated source info, note the promo for the (then) upcoming Yes album, nice title, where have I heard that before? And it would be nice to see the video....

old school tape traders & Yes-aholics will probably know DL and maybe JB from Georgia too
==============================
Notes from JB from Georgia, who made "Spectral Unification" in 2002

Thanks to DL I got a hold of this incredible audience recording of a fantastic performance! It was so good that I just had to share it! DL rates the sound quality on this one an "A", and she admits to being a bit of a conservative grader, so you know this one is a delight to listen to! I had to do very little to this one primarily just cleaning up a few rough transitions. There is little-to-no audience chatter near the taper (who happens to be a friend of DL's). The enthusiasm of the audience comes through in this recording, but doesn't get in the way of the music. And this crowd was charged-up for sure!

Here's the lineage on this one Recorded with Beyer M-700 hypercardioid ambient microphones into a Sony D6 cassette recorder; Maxell metals (masters) > Maxell XLIIS (1st gen) > CDR, via Marantz CDR630 stand-alone burner > CDR (via Marantz CDR630) > WAV (via EAC-secure, one small segment ripped with Feurio); edited with SoundForge 4.5 (no EQ), tracked with CDWave 1.71, SHN'd with mkwACT 0.97 beta 1.

[ harold - this was distributed in 2002 as both SHN and audio, my copy is audio]

Anyhow, SoundForge was pretty much used for editing (few splices, few clicks). Some audience applause was "softened", but that's about it.

This is one of the early Union shows where Yes concluded the concert with Starship Trooper. Also, they play LDR instead of Saving My Heart. The show is complete.

comments:
i had planned to do a "double post" with a short set because this is a 2 CD + show, but having been told that's not the way some like it done here, I won't be doing that any more, I am just posting this one which is a fine concert from the Union (of Lawyers) tour. It is the whole concert. (I think the L.A. 96 set I had originally planned as filler may have been posted before and might even have a released track in it now, so it's just as well to skip that anyway.) All but the last song is from my master and the last song from 1st gen of almost same source quality so you may not even notice any difference. (all from Sony D-6 recordings.) This is a (very) full show from the Union tour, and it's a very strong performance all the way through. This was about my tenth or so time seeing Bruford in some sort of arrangement and he's always been hot whenever I've seen him, no matter who with (and well appreciated). they were all on for this gig. Since their last show at Boston Garden (1984, which I was told was a fiasco), Yes has basically moved their Boston Garden concert barbecue over to Worcester, who did get a good 1984 concert, and probably a good 87 one too. I was supposed to go to the 87 but didn't because I couldn't find any microphones. 89 was a series of recording fiascos, finally after many tries, I got 1 good recording of Yes with Jon Anderson (and in this case, the full package.) before an enthusiastic crowd. All of this is from my master tape, except the second encore, and it is all here, no cuts or gaps or recording problems, and while not a Naka. recording, it sounds pretty nice. As always (now that I know how), a sound sample is attached.
Do not sell this recording. (that makes yes say no) Trade freely and losslessly.

All of this is from my master tape, except the second encore, and it is all here, no cuts or gaps or recording problems, and while not a Naka. recording, it sounds pretty nice. As always (now that I know how), a sound sample is attached. The first time this was posted in 2008 it was from the same recording, but it had a CD > CD extractor step in the lineage, because it was a bit of a project to get it to sound good, and I didn't want to do a new transfer, but... this is a yes show. This is a fresh transfer from the original master tapes, to remove that extra step. The first one came out pretty well, this one sounds a little better and more balanced. I decided to do this partly because I found out the levels in the 1st post were a little unbalanced in a few parts, and that's just not acceptable to me. they are balanced in here. I did some clap reduction in the 1st one but it still sounded pretty clappy. some of that is still true in here too, but I think this one is a little less clappy, especially between the songs where the loudest claps have been reduced in volume by 3-4 db. there were a few short sections that had to be monoized, and one long one in most of "heart of the sunrise", due to mike chord problems, but most of it sounded good and now there are no jarring interruptions or loud noises other than the concert and the welcoming response to it. I also monoized a few short sections in Awaken where there was a loud scream in the right side during the quiet part, because that seemed the best way to reduce the scream volume without reducing Rick's quiet keyboard solo at the beginning of it. It's almost all a "masters of rock" production. There's a fade in for the beginning of each set, and a fadeout at the end of the 1st set. Otherwise it is a "seamless recording" (the previous one had a fadeout after roundabout and a fade in before starship trooper).

hand held mic- first few minutes there's some fading in and out due to having to hide the mic down low. also some volume fluctuation on owner of a lonely heart- knocked volume button after tape flip. also i normalized track by track to bring up the volume on quieter songs.

thanks to ringfedder for letting me borrow his mic cable and Emily for helping me sneak the gear in.

comments:
Before posting this show I wanted to check the tracker because I thought another source audio was posted of this same show (different source recording).
I didn't find that, but davmar77 posted a video aud of this concert which was still up (but unseeded) as of this posting at torrent #216985.
This is the 1st time I've posted this recording (June 2009) which hasn't circulated before to my knowledge.
For burning to CD, it will fit on (2) 80 min. discs if disc 2 is started with track 9.

LDB Special Series #361

Out of my 7,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I'd like to propose you. Most of these come from my cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won't be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my reward for all the work involved in this project.

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

I am ok with blogs and sites to re-post my seeds - provided they are in lossless form - however I ask you to keep intact the infos of the concert including that this is part of LDB series.

And I am referring to (and not only):

Last but not the least, a very important message: I will not be uploading anymore @ Dimeadozen. TTD will be my new home from now. If you want to download my shows please subscribe here and not re-upload @ Dime. Stay tuned because I have more and more shows coming up!

Back to my personal collection for a moment. I was thinking that back in 1991 I used to trade with a couple of fellow US traders that were using DAT recorders which by then were becoming the ultimate reference in the world of live recording. It was great to have one single device that allowed you to record without tape flip, and in digital quality!

I managed to exchange letters with one of them who was living in Hoboken, NJ but happened to work in NYC. And I was planning to travel to NYC for New Year´s Eve 1992. So we organised a trade where basically I was leaving my tapes at the hotel reception (yes guys...it was Waldorf Astoria in Park Ave!!!) and he would take them and return his stuff. When the receptionist gave me the small package, I was more than excited: lots of great DAT stuff in excellent quality. This is one of those. After 20+ years the quality is still satisfactory. The setlist includes Hold On which was not played in all dates making this one over 2,5 hours show. Great man from fellow taper from Hoboken (I cannot recall his name...) which deserves all your thanks!!!

Notes
Here is a fresh transfer from my masters. This was recorded at the back of the Aud
really up high in the nosebleeds. Since it was in the round I wasn't that far away from the stage. I vaguely recall starting out on the right side about half way up and deciding to move to the back for better sound and less crowd. I couldn't tell after listening to the playback when this occurred. I tried to smooth over the transitions for tape flips. May be uncirculated, I don't recall trading this out. Enjoy the show, theklopeks

16 bit version from the collection of chopper7

Recorded by Keith Weiner

Lineage: DAT > cass (2) > Optimus SCT-57 playback deck > Adobe Audition 1.5 (recording at 24/96, track splitting, limiting) > TLH (SBE fix, flac 8)

This is a different recorder than the one previously posted here by theklopeks. It was recorded much closer than his was and sounds a lot clearer and better. In fact this tape sounded so good that no EQ or other processing was used. This is a straight rip from the cassette just as it was heard on playback. Only some digital fades were done. I believe it is a 2nd gen tape because there are fades where the tape sides start and end, but they aren't always in the right spots for the tapes I have (Clap cuts off, then there is a short section on side 2, a fade, then the song resumes). There is an unrepairable dropout in Shock To The System where a small spot was erased on the tape. The intro to the drum duet is missing. Other than that there are no serious flaws.

Hey everybody!

This is the very first show that I taped on DAT! There is some unevenness it the levels on the

master tapes in the first 20 minutes and during "Roundabout" where I trid my hand at "remastering" as

the levels was too low at first (then too hot) on tape one & the encore the levels are higher than

the rest of the 2nd set. I'm no genius at this but this will be the first time that this has been

shared straight off of the DAT master and I'm not even sure if it has been traded by the people I did

give a copy to! The master itself sounds damn good and is one of my best recordings in spite of me

not being experienced with the new medium.... I think you will like it too!

Enjoy!

Union Of Dreams is another interesting and confusing as hell Highland release from Yes’ Uniontour. Released in 1998, the liner notes claim that the bulk of this release is sourced from the April 24th, 1991 Montreal show, the latter half of “Awaken” from a show in Wembley on June 22nd, and the “Holding On” demos from 1991.

The majority of this release comes from a telecast in 1998 on Canadian television of the Yes Union show, but there was no mention of the date or location. The assumption was this is the Montreal show, however this telecast featured the May 9th show at the McNichols Sports Arena in Denver, Colorado.

In reality “Yours Is No Disgrace” to “And You And I,” ”I’ve Seen All Good People” and “Roundabout” come from Denver, and “Lift Me Up,” “Changes” and ”Awaken” are taken from Wembley Arena on June 29th, 1991 and are sourced from the excellent Westwood One radio broadcast. It’s a confusing edit because “Lift Me Up” and “Changes” from Colorado circulate and why they were edited in from Wembley is not exactly clear.

Denver was released before and several tracks can be found on Union Review ‘91 (Dr. Gig DGCD004) which lacks “Rhythm Of Love” and ”Lift Me Up.” Wembley has been the source of many great titles including Live In Montreal (Flash 09.92.0187), The Return To Fantasy (Beech Marten Records BM 055) and U.S.A. 1991 (Post Script PSCD 1243). Despite the errors and the bizarre editing, the sound quality is simply outstanding. The stereo separation, gain and balance are perfect. The only small quibble would be about what sounds like canned cheering during the tracks which sounds artificial. Even that isn’t intrusive though.

The performances are also outstanding. By this time the had become used to playing with one another and they mesh very well with hints of competition between the guitarists. This is apparent in the first song “Yours Is No Disgrace” where it is obvious Howe and Rabin are dueling it out (and Rabin blows Howe off the stage). After “Rhythm Of Love” Jon Anderson greets the audience, saying, “It’s great to be with you this evening. Do you want to hear a new song? Here’s a new song from the new album. The song is called ‘Shock To The System.’ Shock to the rights of mankind” articulating heavily each syllable.

“And You And I” is referred to as being “like good wine, things get better with age. They really do. Especially this next song. Woo!” There is a noticeable change in the sound quality after the song as we switch to Wembley for the next couple of songs. “Life Me Up” is the second Union song played in the set at this point.

The second disc cuts in while Anderson is congratulating the drummers for their duet, saying: “Hear it to the thunder machine, Mr. Alan White! On the electronic drums, Mr. Bill Bruford!” He goes on to make an introduction before “Changes,” saying: “The unbelievable, the original, the very naughty, the man who never says no. Mr. Tony Kaye!”

There is another edit after the song and Jon Anderson, speaking to the Colorado audience, is saying: “What we need now is some audience participation. What we’re going to do is a song which, I’m sure a lot of you know and we’re going to record it. As you know we’re recording anyway tonight so. We have these microphones at the end of the blue lights. You see the blue lights so we can pick up the audience. You guys. Alright. We need you to sing along. Okay? Are you ready to sing along okay?” The live material ends with the final ten minutes of “Awaken” from Wembley, cutting in during the meditative harp section to the end.

The final half hour of this disc is devoted to an amateur recording of Jonathan Elias, Trevor Rabin and Jon Anderson in the studio working on “Holding On.” This is one of the more produced and treated songs on Union, but this tape reveals how much work went into the song. This kind of tape really appeals to hardcore fans. While it is interesting, a half hour of stops, starts and discussions (some of which are bearly audible) tend to get a bit tedious.

Highland should be applauded for pressing this tape since it is, as far as I can tell, the only version available on any release. Union Of Dreams utilizes the Roger Dean artwork on the front cover and has typical period photos on in the inner artwork. However, if you’re not looking for ever piece of rehearsal tape Yes ever produced or am not a big fan of the album, then the appeal is quite limited. The Denver material, while sounding great, is not complete and actually watching the footage is so much better, especially since there aren’t many Union clips floating around.

This recording has been circulating since '91 however this version is a new master cassette
transfer from my original analog master tape (Feb 2010).

The ultimate Yes show bringing the two favorite versions of Yes together for a great show. This tour also featured the "In the Round" stage set up. Nice recording from Loge 2 Row 8.

This is upload #30 from my "Master tape Collection". I'm going to start uploading shows from
my 600+ masters which includes uncirculated recordings from 2003 thru the present. I've taped just about every show i've gone too since 1986 so you can imagine i have a lot of masters to share. Most of my recordings from 1986-2002 have been circulating as i used to do a lot of trading back in the day. All uploads however will be new master tape transfers directly from the master tape to CD.

Enjoy!
Brian.

LDB Special Series #166

Out of my 7,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I'd like to propose you. Most of these come from my cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won't be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my reward for all the work involved in this project.

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

I don't think this has circulated yet in the circuit. A nice sounding excerpt from the Union tour. Some fan really dislike this tour but I think it is one of the last good ones from the band. Enjoy!

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

Additional info from Mr.Proper:

There is ONLY officially released material, and no live recording from the Union tour. Here's how it breaks down:

01 Heart Of the Sunrise - Yessongs
02 Clap - The Yes Album
03 And You And I - Yessongs
04 Hold On - 90125 Live The Solos
05 ISAGP - Yessongs
06 Changes - 90125 Live The Solos
07 Long Distance Runaround - Yessongs
08 Lift Me Up - studio version
09 Roundabout - Yessongs
10 Awaken - GFTO version

All tracks are running 5-6% too fast, so you might not immediately spot it, but that's what's on the radio show, and in dreadful quality as well. Bottom line is that this bootleg should be taken out of circulation, basically. Hey, they can't all be home runs.

SETLIST [for standard 80-minute CDR] - There's no ideal way to get a UNION show spread evenly between the three discs usually required, and too much of the document would've had to be cut out to get this one on two. Beginning and ending tracks are faded to fit this configuration, but shouldn't interfere with any different approach as they effect only audience sound. I use 74 minute gold archival discs for shows of this quality anyway, which make for a better spread, less blank disc space on 2 and 3:

Special thanks to Flying Gonz, who presented us with this masterpiece of an AR originally and who OK'd my work with it

Endless thanks to the Taper – it wouldn’t exist for anyone to enjoy without his bravery and expertise, then and now

STRENGTHS:

Performance - It's Yes, if an unweildy 8-piece one

Source and mastering effort – A stunning AR sound capture for any decade, even the 1990s and 2000s. When I first heard it I was floored, and I have yet to hear anything else at all from the UNION tour to compare. Probably equals do exist, but everything else I've heard has one or more tape generations on it. There's nothing like an original master, especially one like this.

The high frequencies in the original needed some revealing, which two small compounded EQ boosts did nicely. Nothing else in the spectrum needed anything at all. Mids and lows are as nearly in balance and perfect as they can be, without distortion, and presented here 'as is'. Hiss almost nonexistant, and even more miraculously got no more noticeable with the high frequency work. The recording's tracks have been redone to unite announcements with their pieces - in the previous torrent track splits frequently placed announcements for upcoming numbers at the end of previous ones.

WEAKNESSES:

Just a tiny scattering of dropouts, inevitable in any AR. Most seem likely related to the occasional needed mic concealment operation. In some segments left channel amplitude is slightly lower than right, probably due to mic position changes and not serious enough to need correction. Only one segment was lost - some tens of seconds of the beginning of the percussion duet and it's unfortunate, but it came after an intermission, even supertapers have to pee, and most of it's there.

Other than the above, I can't think of any worth mentioning.

Happy listening, please share widely but keep lossless. Please also help keep this and all your favorite torrents alive by alerting others to their existence - this one and many, many others died long before their time in their first runs because so many didn't see them within 24 hours of their coming online.

This review of the concert comes from a lucky attendee:

"A huge venue, as the above stat shows, and in the round -- or rather square, as it were; they were perched upon a large cubic stage ... think of one of those towers poking out of the Death Star & you have an idea what it looked like. Pretty tall, actually, I have to wonder if those up close could really see what was going on up there [I was farther away and up one of the banks of bleacher-type seating]. It was mostly stationary, but periodically lurched around 90 degrees before resting for another 15 minutes. Something like watching one of those 100-year-old turtles move at the zoo on a hot day ... but I digress.

Many long-time fans will tell you the best YES experience is to have seen them back in [fill in blank with pre-Buggle date of choice]. But the NEXT-best YES experience is to have STARTED with 90125 [having heard the classic era, and appreciating both], and then watching the band improve over the next decade or two. By 1991, I'd seen my fill of 90125 & marveled at the impossible-to-believe ABWH reunion. Then came this, defying all understanding but delighting those who wished to see Anderson, Squire, Wakeman & Howe on the same stage again. It didn't matter which drummer you preferred, because both were present.

The bandlist and setlist tell you all you need to know: essentially a YES revue, with performers hopping on and off stage (or rather disappearing into it -- perhaps I should have compared it to the Jawa crawler?) as each song required -- not so much a union as a hodgepodge -- or even a battle of the bands, the prize being rights to the name. In that way, it was faithful to the album, which had no track containing every 'member'. (Will the real YES please stand up?)

I did like the occasional cross-pollination; if memory serves, Wakeman sat in for 'Owner' and lit up the outro with his slash-and-burn solo style -- Wakeman and Rabin playing together is nothing to dismiss! A true delight.

All that being said, it was a lovely show ... in pieces. And some other pieces were well-done but seemed out of place: 'Lift Me Up', for example, sounded like it should have been a Starship song [and I don't mean Trooper].

And there was a great potential in this band. Where ABWH had been a good band with some great musicians, this was definitely up more than a notch. Especially when both guitarists were on together -- I mean, Steve Howe hardly needs a second guitarist to help out, but if he WAS to have another in there ... my oh my is Trevor amazing! You couldn't ask for a better guitarist: he could play anything Steve sent his way. I wish I could remember better now just exactly what he did that night, but now I only remember being mightily impressed. Too bad there wasn't a way to keep both of these stellar musicians; we got only a bare hint of what might have been, and that largely toward the end of the tour.

High points in my memory now, over a decade later, were the Wakeman solo on Owner, a lovely And You & I [well, isn't it always!] with a stunning watery lighting effect, but especially the return of 'Awaken', played by the five men who recorded it back in 1977. It sang, it soared, it brooded, it roared; for one who had answered the call issued from a battered copy of Yessongs but had to settle for 90125 in concert, this was the prize reward. Whether or not it would last [and in what form] remained to be seen, but I had experienced Rick Wakeman in Yes playing 'Awaken', and nothing would ever take that away from me. Had they never performed again, i would not have felt cheated :-)

Had they never performed again, i would not have felt cheated :-)

Addendum, June 2010 – I have yet to hear another UNION tour audience capture with comparable sound quality except one from Raleigh, NC, USA, which despite being analog was even better in fact thanks to superior venue acoustics and a superb taping location relative to PA. Unfortunately the copy I have is generational, was made with a very hissy analog cassette deck, and too degraded to make a suitable upload by the time I was able to convert it. I was privileged to hear the original master when the copy was made, less than a month after the event, and it was absolutely astounding. Alas I have no idea where that master is now.

Meanwhile this one has a single additional improvement. Just a simple edit really, but a needed one.

Not long after publishing my original version of it I regretted not raising the final amplitude since playback required much higher volume than any other, but I just figured it was low recording input on the night and left it at that. What I finally noticed when I sat down to correct it was just how low: I had to raise everything by 4 dB from the raw master level to get normal "conversational" playback volume. There's noticeably more detail evident in the sound now as well.

Not knowing the levels used during original tape to wave conversion also raises the possibility of some data loss, as we know has happened to many other recordings now in circulation. It's the digital equivalent of tape undersaturation - not to be confused with "lossiness", but an all too common compromise in sound quality anyhow. In sum,the original master might be even better than we know if only subtly so.

Given the thorough original lineage provided and quality of hardware/software listed this seems unlikely though, and either way 17 May 1991 remains my favorite AR of the UNION tour for sound quality save one presumably lost. We must all be ever grateful to its originators.

a great sounding show! the Olympiahalle usually is a bad place for taping, lots of hall sound due to the size of the venue.

LDB Special Series #257

Out of my 7,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I'd like to propose you. Most of these come from my cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won't be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my reward for all the work involved in this project.

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

I was transferring this one and got the chance to listen back to the Union tour. Some like it, some others don't. I have good memories from that tour although I had funny stories and curious accidents during the three shows I attended (Paris, Zurich and Milano). German radio broadcasted about 50 minutes of the show so I thought it would be good to join both sources and have them available for you folks. I am also listening to my master from Paris which turned out to be the best from my three recordings. If there's enough interest I may have a look how to transfer my master.

Master audience recording
from my original Maxell XL II C-90 tapes

Artwork is included.

This concert I taped with my Sony WM D6 professional walkman
and an extra steroe-mikrophone (I can't remember what mikrophone it was).
I recorded it from a seat on the left side about 10 meters from the stage.

The sound quality is excellent -.
There is a cut in between "Changes" because I had to change the cassettes.
I could not manage to talk to Jon Anderson before the concert telling him not
to play those long songs to take care that I have enough time to change the cassettes.
..and of course I had to change the cassettes at "Changes (!!!)"
5 seconds before the end of that song.

Anyway, on this tour there were about eight YES-sers on stage.
So there was not much space on stage for each musician.

LDB Master Series #267

Hello, this is a collection of masters I would like to seed here. I've been taping shows for more than 25 years (in 2013 I will celebrate 30 years of happy recording hobby!) and have an awful lot of masters. These are in different formats, following the technological evolution: first on analogue cassettes, then MiniDisc, some DATs (I was borrowed a DAT machine to record some of the shows in late 90's / early 00's) and finally digital files using Edirol R-09.

I've taped many shows of many artists over the years (both from audience and radio broadcasts) , so don't be surprised if you will find many different artists seeded! My music spectrum is quite wide, spanning from classical to hard rock.

Some shows are already circulating, some others have not circulated through collectors yet. But most of all, enjoy! They all come from my mastertapes!

Please 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. PLEASE DO RESPECT THIS WISH and enjoy the music in lossless form.

Finally, some notes about your truly ldb: I have been a fan of live music since I was 9 years old (that is where I attended my very first show, a PFM/De André gig at Milano's Palalido) and my first taped show was at 11 using a crappy portable cassette player with embedded microphone. I become more serious about taping in 1983 when I started to record every show. In 1991 I acquired my first Sony Professional and in 2000 I moved to MiniDisc to finally settle on R-09 in early 2008.

I have seen nearly 500 shows in my career. Most of them were taped but for others bad luck struck and I could not record it: on top of my mind there's a Paul McCartney show in 1993 in Milano where I was caught by the security or Porcupine Tree in Roma in March 1999 when the DAT machine would seem to work but listening back to the tape there
would just be a long bunch of silence. Or during a Y.Malmsteen show where I got so annoyed that I left halfway through the show and erased the tape and finally on a PFM show in Milano in 2007 where I had to leave before the encore because the baby-sitter had to leave early that evening. Some other times I was very close not to tape or
had to do it in extremely difficult situations: for the four Peter Gabriel shows at Earls Court in 1987 security was checking tapers with metal detector; at the David Gilmour comeback show in London in 2001 at RFH I had the security guy sitting next to me but I managed to tape the show without checking one single time my MiniDisc!

There was a time I was travelling anywhere in Europe to see shows, especially if there was no touring in Italy: I remember Rush in Paris in 1992 when the trio did not even know what Italy was. I have seen shows at stadiums (Genesis at Wembley) and in places with 30 people (Porcupine Tree in Milano in 1997); bands that would later become huge (Pearl Jam in a free show for 150 people) and masters of jazz (Miles Davis or Sarah Vaughan). Shows I will never forget (Pink Floyd at Versailles castle) and some I would rather forget (no comment...).

I truly believe that live music is what keeps music alive, what make us enjoying it together, what allow us to have deep feelings and transmit it to others. Studio records are nowadays 'commodities': you can buy online as anonymous wav files and listen in your iPod or at home. Live music will always imply an effort to buy the tix, travel to the venue, see the show, think about it when coming back home.

Mixed memories on that tour. From one side it was good to hear some of the classics back in the setlist. On the other it was evident that they were doing that (only) for the money. But good show anyway. I remember I was sitting on the side, not very distant from the PA so the sound is quite close and clear. That was the first of the three concerts I attended from the Union tour and possibly the best one.

All One Big Happy Family

The Union tour was a difficult time for the band YES. 1970's YES members Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman and Howe had just finished a successful tour as ABWH despite a threatened law suit from 1980's YES members, Rabin, Kaye, White and Squire. With the second ABWH album stalling and the record executives grappling with the idea of two bands out on tour playing YES music, the suggestion was made, or forced upon the musicians depending on whom you talk to, that all eight players should come together as the band YES. As Steve Howe has said, "(Union) was more in control of the producers than the players and that required a lot of compromise from everybody".

For the new album, appropriately called Union, material from the ABWH camp was merged with songs written by Trevor Rabin and then topped off by material written by members of the group once they were together. According to Chris Squire the production of this album was hardly a real union of the two musical camps involved, "I think it's important to note that on the album there was no point where the eight of us were playing together on any one song. It was really like Jon was going back and forth between the ABWH band and us like a loose cannon." Despite all the talent that was brought together for this endeavor, no one seemed very pleased with the end result. Rick Wakeman famously has said, "I call it the Onion album because every time I hear it, it brings tears to my eyes". Trevor Rabin referred to it as a "black mark" on the band's history.

On tour, an interesting setlist was devised. In an attempt to satisfy everyone's concept of what was YES music. There were six songs from the early 1970's Bruford-era of YES. These included: Yours Is No Disgrace, Heart of the Sunrise, Clap, And You And I, I've Seen All Good People and Roundabout. For the 1980's YES camp represented by Rabin and Kaye the following 80's material was chosen: Rhythm of Love, Make It Easy, Owner Of A Lonely Heart, Changes, Solly's Beard and Whitefish; six in all. Three Union album songs were added: Shock the System, Saving My Heart and Lift Me Up and the show was rounded out by the inclusion of a perennial favorite, Awaken.

The setlist did not change much during the tour. After many gigs the band worked out all the kinks with individual songs performed well; even the drum duet of Bruford and White was polished. Interestingly, during one show in Lake Placid the band decided to cut out the solos and play Close To The Edge. Accounts from those who were there were mixed. Anderson, Howe, Bruford, Squire and Wakeman were the only members on stage for that song and it was performed imprecisely, in the opinion of some. By the time the band arrived in New York City for the next show, the decision was made to return to the standard setlist and Close To The Edge was dropped.

Despite the uncomfortable beginning of the Union project and the lack of union during the album's creation, it appears that some actually enjoyed the tour. Rick Wakeman said, "The Union tour was a wonderful tour....it was undoubtedly the most enjoyable YES tour I ever did". The performance was presented on a circular stage, with the two musical camps forced together. Jon Anderson noted, "I felt like a bee buzzing around and pollinating everyone".

During this tour, Bruford was still using the unusual drum kit introduced during the ABWH tour. Squire was described by one fan as looking, “tremendously over weight and ridiculous in that Tormato tour jacket”. Despite the uncomfortable, forced union of these musicians at the start of the tour, another fan said, “It is known that some current and former members are really not very friendly with each other but on this night you would think they all loved each other as brothers”.

The tour began with 33 shows in North America, starting in Florida and ending in Seattle, Washington. With only one week of rest, they resumed in Europe with another 22 performances; finishing with three shows at the Wembley arena. As if that wasn't enough, it was back to the United States, again after only one week off. The tour finished in August and was followed by a long break. Five shows were played in Japan in March of the following year but that would be the end of the Union rendition of YES. After that brief tour the band split apart. Steve Howe, Bill Bruford and Rick Wakeman were no longer part of the band and the rest went on to the next project, Talk.

Hello! Here is a new series from my collection. After the Master Series, here is the Special Series.
Out of my 6,000+ 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.

If it was not for Pisano, this show would have probably stayed in my vaults. He has been banging on my head for a long time,
asking me to transfer this show to digital and share it to DIME, that at the end I could not do otherwise. But the show
was nice and the recording excellent, coming from a DAT source (same one of the ABWH 1989 one I seeded a while ago) which
was copied to me on tapes. Some Yes fans do not like this tour but I think the show was very powerful and a great mix between
old and new Yes line-ups. I think any fan of any group would love this kind of experiment. Anyway, the strongest moments
of this show for me have been Heart of the Sunrise

I forgot how nice this was until I finally listened to it. Absolutely terrific quality and the show must have been a real
treat! A++++ soundwise.

The Union tour was very good indeed and I strongly disagreed with those - Bill Bruford among others - who underrated that
tour. I interviewed Alan White in Milano a few months after this show (with Jon Anderson making funny jokes to him while
he was speaking) and he seemed very pleased with the result and having a very good time. 18 years old already!
enjoy!

LDB Special Series #146

Out of my 7,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the
musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I'd like to propose you. Most of these come from my
cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won't be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my
reward for all the work involved in this project.

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

"Say Yes" Remaster

Lineage: awesome Audience recording -> "Say Yes" liberated bootleg (Red Phantom records) -> Dimeadozen bit torrent (seeder info not available) ->

TheTooleMan (Sound Forge) -> FLAC

"Hildie" on Dimeadozen asked if I had this recording, so I dug it out and gave it a listen. Turns out this is an excellent and complete audience recording from the Union tour - the soundboard Westwood One Superstar Concert Series recording is incomplete. Unfortunately, the pitch of the recording on the Italian "Red Phantom" bootleg release is a full semitone sharp. Also, the CD's were tracked by someone who apparently does not know much about Yes music.

TheTooleMan to the rescue! I sharpened my razor blades, cleaned off several months worth of bills from my desk, had a few stiff drinks, and went to bed. The next day I cleared out my hard drive and did battle with Windoze for several hours. Tools finally ready, I got to work on my first remaster of the new year.

Thankfully, the bootleg had not been overly abused, and I was able to get excellent results fairly fast. Correcting the pitch was most of the battle, but I also split or combined a few tracks as I saw fit. (Fie on those Italian bootleggers!) A few little edits were needed to cut an ear-splitting 5500 Hz feedback in "All Good People," extend a quick fade-out at the end of a tape, and correct other minor problems. EQ was a little flat, so I improved it, too. The tape has a great high end with virtually no hiss.

I did not fix a jump cut in the beginning of "Rhythm of Love." It's not too distracting, and you may not even notice it. I don't know whether it is a master tape glitch or an error introduced during the CD extraction by the original seeder. It could also have been a problem with the recording Yes used to start the song during this tour - it may have been heard by the audience during the performance at Wembley!

Scans of the bootleg art are included from the previous seed, but the tracks as shown in the art don't agree with the actual track list posted below. With the pitch adjustment, forget about the track times on the art. My changes are documented in the track list below.

You'll enjoy this one, especially now that it sounds more like Yes and less like castrati.

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

Not a bad recording, it is a partial show but it fills up an hour.. Also released as bootleg, "The Return to fantasy." This is not that, as the intro to Awaken is missing here. The intro to Awaken is reportedly cut on the aforementioned bootleg.

My buddy often sends me his cassettes to master to digital kuz he's not equipped to git her dunn. Besides, i'm darn good at it. (sorry, that was shameless) - anyhoo, this is supposedly from a broadcast so it ain't no Pre-FM job. I haven't seen this around anywhere so I thought it a good one to UP and share. "Heart of the Sunrise," and, "AND you & I," are the gems here. But I guess its kinda neat hearing BRuford play Simmons-based percussion on "Changes" and "Owner..." (he-yeah, right)

Enjoy

This is the other soundboard show I got from the Union tour. I was told it was London so I compared it to an audience tape I had of the 6-29-1991 show and its the same. I didn't tweak this one at all other than disc fades and few small smooth-overs. I believe a version of this soundboard is floating around already as I had it. That version is not quite as good in quality and it is songs only with no in-between song chatter. This version has a lot of it, but like the Burgettstown, PA show it is missing solo spots for Rabin and Wakeman. Awaken is here, though! As before, the sound engineer supposedly taped certain songs on a 90 min tape so thats all you get. This is better quality than the Burgettstown, PA show.

Ripped direct from CD

**I received this CD in a trade. This CD had a blank label but did list the songs
and that it was from FM. However due to Forgotten Yesterdays being offline I don't really know where it was recorded or the date. On the plus side you get 7 1/2 songs in stereo of the Union lineup. Not all songs are here from the show obviously but you do get great live versions. I just wish it was mixed a little better so that all 8 band members can be heard on all tracks.

There are 2 issues to warn about:
Track 4 Changes/All Good People-for some reason these were not separated as individual tracks. And also Awaken is edited. This really bugged me but overall some great playing here from a gone too soon lineup**

STRENGTHS:

Sound -

I doubt it's the best UNION tour AR sound capture but am certain one of the best and definitely the best of a score I've heard. Recorder operator was dead-center, roughly 15 rows back. Venue one of the best anywhere acoustically and contributed to the fine capture. Another legendary Yes sound system helped. Though taped by someone else I was there and know well what it actually sounded like, so final master can be considered the more accurate.

While this torrent is a transfer from first generation cassette, it suffers almost none of the horrid signal to noise ratio problems many such tape copies do, even when one generation only and especially those made prior to 1985 or so and requiring extensive EQ work. A comparative example on DIME can be found in Yes Boston 6/18/76 ["B76"] - one of my own. While I spent a year fighting generational tape noise - resembling carefully excavated high frequencies and rendering midrange somewhat 'distant'- it remains problematic to some ears and in some playback systems despite extensive 'Beta' testing and its nearly miraculous AR sound capture for 1976 [an upgrade of B76 with more visible midrange and less middle-high frequency conflict is coming soon, but I decided to get this and another even more stellar 1970's AR Dimed first]. R91 enjoys remarkable freedom from such problems thanks to considerably higher deck and tape quality available in 1991.

High frequencies are extremely detailed and sharp for any AR, even one post-1980. While some remastering was needed to render sound spectrum on CD as it could be heard in the cassettes and parametric equalizer analysis shows highs peaking somewhat above the industry standard curve line, high end does not compete with midrange as it did in B76. AR highs as sharp and clear as in commercial 'live' releases tend to graph some distance above parametric industry rolloffs anyhow, but R91 parallels them more evenly and B76 was an extreme of peaks resulting from the need to dig highs out from under so much tape noise.

Other things have exceptional presence too, including kick drums and bass guitar hitting flesh/bone-resonant frequencies almost as they did at the concert itself. One aspect I remember well about Yes' sound that night was its 'Amazing Bass', thanks in part to the amphitheater's outstanding acoustics. Midrange not bad either, and it's quite well documented in this recording.

All in all, outstanding full spectrum detail with minimal noise problems and distortion limited to a few isolated spots.

Performance -

Overall sound in this recording comes as close as any to actually being there, and preserves a performance worthy of comparing to some of Yes' best '70s nights. Of all the UNION tour ARs I've heard none featured nearly as enthustiastic a delivery by the often unwieldy 8-piece Yes.

It was the second leg of the UNION tour and while no longer in-the-round some 40 prior concerts had enabled more refined arrangements along with more cohesion among the eight disparate musicians. Arrangements and delivery were as stunning as they had been with ABWH and even in many a 1970s tour. The Raleigh UNION concert recaptured a certain '70s "totality" largely missing from two revenue-oriented 1980s tours prior to ABWH. Other factors contributing to a standout UNION tour performance include an amphitheater brand new that night and Yes its very first engagement [listen for Jon Anderson's 'baptismal' comment just before "Shock to the System"]. Yes had to be enjoying the energy of sleepy little Raleigh's brand new pride and joy somehow. I'm certain they had other nights in 1991 just as vital if not more so, but I haven't run across any tapes of them yet.

WEAKNESSES:

Breaks -

Recorder operator either had technical problems, frequent attacks of paranoia or was some sort of radio-hit oriented philistine, resulting in a far larger number of breaks than most such recordings suffer. In sum there are gaps to piss off everyone, be they '70s Yes purists or more partial to the '80s Yes direction. A few tracks suffer multiple breaks. For me the worst one occurs in "Awaken", just before it hit its crescendo in the second movement. The whole segment is lost, and having been there I can testify to what a loss it represents. Steve Howe's 'MoodClap' is missing altogether but has been so ubiquitous in Yes concerts I don't personally consider it a major loss. If he'd played "Sketches in the Sun" or another of his later, more adventurous solo works we'd have something to be universally upset about. On the upside most of the best, including "Heart of the Sunrise", "Long Distance/Fish", Trevor's and Rick's solos, and the percussion duet are fully intact, except for one mercifully tiny break in "Long Distance".

Sound -

Despite original quality control efforts tape age at time of transfer had resulted in stretch and wrinkling at leaders with consequent rolling dropout, which we can be grateful largely disappears with distance from leaders. Its worst examples occur at the very beginning, lasting a minute or so into "Yours Is No Disgrace", just before and well into "Owner of a Lonely Heart", and at various other points where apparent tape flips occurred but having thankfully shorter durations.

When the tapes were transferred I did not have professional mastering software so hired an individual who did to remaster the raw WAV files for me. The rates were miraculously low and naturally I got what I paid for - a decent but very uneven job requiring me to make extensive corrections after acquiring the needed tools. It turns out I had three different levels of EQ settings to even up, an effort largely successful but the third level included an effect [probably widening] I could neither reverse nor duplicate for lack of log file, so mid-"Lift Me Up" we can hear a shift of the stereo center slightly to the left and carrying through "Roundabout". It's not a radical departure from earlier segments but is noticeable. Fortunately I was able to match this segment's overall dynamic spectrum to the other two - its high end was also considerably brighter than the rest.

In two places we also have digital skipping inherited from the initial outsourced mastering attempt. They occur during the "Make It Easy" intro to "Owner" and during Anderson's spoken acknowledgement of Squire's bass playing after "Fish". I have not detected this problem anywhere else, and decided not to delete the effected segments due to their brief nature and importance to the total AR's energy.

Bass frequencies as described above are extremely powerful in this AR and while no boosting of low end was needed or attempted the low end overmodulates when Chris gets really aggressive. It does overwhelm other frequencies at times and low end was slightly reduced in such segments to compensate, but it's in the original tapes and represents another AR tradeoff. When it's a choice between preserving as much as possible of what a concert was actually like and tolerating some limited distortion I always choose the latter.

Midrange is a bit harsh, but not due to any EQ work and initial reduction experiments resulted in it being overwhelmed by low end. Again, part of the original analog document and should not be intolerable.

Hiss can be detected but not nearly so severe as in other analog generations of analog masters, and in fact far less noticeable than in the 1976 Boston AR. No hiss or noise reduction has been attempted.

So there you have it. Hopefully this admittedly long winded Info File helps your download decision, and results in a better enjoyment of the show for all who do. For post-1970s Yes I find it unusually enjoyable and hope everyone else who downloads it has as much fun as I have!

Notes:
This is my 15th transfer in the series. Not previously circulated as with all my masters. I will rate this show and the recording as VG+ to Ex-. There is a tape flip cut after "Clap" completes and before "Make It Easy" starts losing no music at all. There is a small cut in the "Drum Duet" at 1:51 due to accidentally hitting the pause button Only a couple seconds lost. and a seamless non noticeable tape flip cut at 5:06 of "Awaken". This was recorded from Section 225 Row C Seat 12. Enjoy this excellent presentation of the "Union Tour" In The Round with an 8 piece band. Too bad Close To The Edge was dropped from this set.
Enclosed in the Torrent is EncodeProcessLog, SBEsAudioFileCheck, shntool_len file, shntool_info file, FFP File and Verify.
Do as you wish for your own personal use but please do not alter any of the files here if you trade or torrent this elsewhere later on. No artwork or snazzy titles please this is a fan transfer not a bootleg.

Enjoy,

1991 july 18

this is my master which i shared with practically no one untill now.

I recorded this listened to it a few times and then stored it in a plastic container that sat under my bed for years. This recording has several problems and I had no intention of ever sharing it. I think I may have lent it to one person who made a copy back in 1991 but my memory is a bit fuzzy on that. Since i haven't seen any other recordings of this show being traded i figured it's time to get this out there-warts and all.
so here's what went wrong.
The first problem i had was getting to my seat on time. so the first track(firebird) you can hear me struggling to get one of my mics turned on- lots of bumping and rustling noises.
the second problem was the seating. we had "good" seats inside the pavillion but the sound was rather horrible and people were constantly walking in front of me. also, if i remember right there was security nearby making me nervous. my friend and I decided to move after Rhythm of love. so the few tracks sound differen't from the rest of the show. it sounds like a differen't source but it's not.
so now we move on to the next set of problems. we walked around and found a sweet sounding spot on the lawn but i missed most of shock to the system. in fact you can hear me turn the deck back on and set up during the last part of that song. I decided to include that half a minute or so for historical purposes. really you'll probably want to delete it.
unfortunately, although we found an excellent spot for sound, i was still having some of the same difficulties of the first spot and there's no moving twice. Security was still making me nervous, lot's of loud people and i also remember a slight breeze and i didn't have wind screens. also it was a hot summer day so i probably didn't have socks to use as screens. i basically gave up at this point placed my equipment(back pack) on the ground and a few minutes later decided to use my hat as both a wind screen and a way to hide the mics. i figured it was better than turning the deck off which is what i felt like doing. this is also the heart breaking moment on the recording and the main reason it stayed under my bed for so many years.the minute i put that hat or whatever i used over those mics the quality drops- it becomes a bit muffled but is still listenable . this happens a few minutes into heart of the sunrise. also you can hear a hacky sack game going on during this song.
unfortunatlely that's not the end of the problems. i missed the tape flip and lost a few minutes of Owner Of a lonely heart- you can hear me go into my pack during Changes and my pack got kicked during squire's solo.

what this recording mostly needs is some eq and maybe a little hiss reduction. using a parmetric eq i was able to get parts of it to sound surprisingly good but i decided to leave raw for now and possibly make another version later on or maybe somone else might want to work their magic. the only fixes i did are a balancing,amplitude and i dropped the amplitude where the bag and mics got kicked.

I don't know where I got this show. I don't think it was DIME as I usually save the info files for shows and I there was none. I also couldn't find any cassettes of this show in my collection. I know it was from sometime in the 90's when I got this because it was on Verbatim white discs with blue dye. Anyway, I got a request to seed this puppy so I took it out and found the sound thin so I mastered this one to my tastes. Now it sounds like a concert. :) It was always great quality.

Got a soundboard of Yes's Burgettstown, PA show (WAV file, not the tapes) which is excellent quality, but incomplete. I've tweaked the sound to bring out the bass as much as possible as it was very thin and we Yes fans all know how Squire's bass pedals can shake the rafters. Alas, its not happening here, but its a big improvement. The sound is so right-in-your-face, but gets adjusted somewhat as the show goes on. There are a few bad tape spots, but not enough to detract. You'll probably notice that the left channel sounds louder. Decibal level-wise, its not, but the instrument mix makes it sound clearer on the left than on the right. Its weird. I played around with the EQ to see what I could do to compensate, but finally decided not to alter that at all.

This will be short and sweet. I was at this show and taped it.
My recording is analog and ex- with flashes of ex ; this is a
DAT recording and IMHO is ex to ex+. This offering is NOT my
tape but one that I downloaded from Dime or TTD around 9/25/2007.
I don't recall exactly where I got this but I'm calling it a
reseed to avoid screaming, yelling, bitching and moaning. Honestly,
I haven't listened to the whole show yet after 2+ years, but what
I've heard has been phenomenal. If you find glitches, forgive me
but don't blame me. I'm just upping what I originally downloaded.
The flac files are UNCHANGED. I added a setlist & fingerprints file
and this, an updated info file. That's it. The rest of the file is
as I received it. READ THE ORIGINAL INFO FILE. This is a FANTASTIC
show and you need it if you're a fan of Yes, circa 1991. That's about
all that I have, so let's get this ball rolling...

Finally, please don't buy, sell or convert this show to mp3 or any other
lossy format. Please seed this as long as you can. Please trade this freely
as it is probably under-circulated. This show will be a welcome addition to
any Yes fan's collection. I will post a sample to help some of you decide
whether or not to download it but it's really unnecessary. So, as Mr. Natural
is so fond of saying, have fun, don't freak out and enjoy the concert !

CD RES VERSION:

YES
"THE DARK GOLD DUST OF KNOWLEDGE"
LIVE AT THE CONCORD PAVILLION
AUGUST 7, 1991 CONDORD CALIFORNIA

Recorded by John K.
Remastered and restored by Mister E. Tweaker
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Info from John K. about the original recording:
Recorded from about the fifth row on Rick's side with a Sony D-3 with the stock microphone. In analog it sounds quite nice as denon chrome tapes were used. The 24bit flac version is very large: about 3.5 gb. It is straight from the master tapes with azimuth adjusted. No EQ is applied and adding bass is recommended. Only 'Make It Easy' is cut due to tape flip and a bit of the beginning of Saving My Heart. Roundabout is a bit weird with phase as I didn't really know what I was doing and got caught up in the best, closest Yes performance that I had seen. Good memories and a better performance than the next night (the last of the tour).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Info from Mister E. Tweaker:
Additional info #1:
The "Make It Easy (intro)" and the beginning part of "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" are patched with an alternate sourced recording, so there is a difference in audio quality.
Additional info #2:
There is some distortion and there are a few drop-outs in parts of the recording (most probably due to the recording circumstances, the recording equipment used and microphone level overload).
Additional info #3:
Mister E. Tweaker does not proclaim to be an expert in remastering or restoring (far from it), but did the best he could do with this recording.

Images etc. used for the cover art were found on the internet.

Fonts used: SF Intellivised Outline

Info: Complete recording of last show of the American leg of Union tour. There exists an incomplete PRO video recording of the in-house feed, and audio recordings taken from that video, but I'm not aware of any other complete recordings. A great show and performance, unfairly maligned in my opinion; probably because looking at the in-house feed out of context, which contains an unusual number of closeups intended to be broadcast to more distant fans may make the performance seem lacksadaisical, which in person was not that way at all. An excellent recording with a very energetic crowd.
My subjective rating: A-

REMASTERED BY THETOOLEMAN
April, 2003

Lineage: audience recording -> audio disks -> Sound Forge -> SHN

This high-quality audience recording has been circulated as a three-disk commercial bootleg and in MP3 format.

The source of this version was not MP3-encoded.

The recording was edited to exclude lengthy applause between songs and during the call for an encore, thus
allowing it to fit on two audio CD's. The original source was very tinny, lacking bass. This has been
corrected in the remaster.

Art for the remaster is included. Jose Salinas did a great job!

“(re)Masters of Time” 2nd Edition

UPDATED/UPGRADED/FIXED!

NEW REMASTER by TheTooleMan, June 2007
Lineage: “Masters of Time” non-MP3 recording -> Sound Forge -> FLAC

First, the bad news: After torrenting “(re)Masters of Time,” my 2003 remastered version of the non-MP3 version of the “Masters of Time” bootleg, I found out that some of the tracks were incomplete due to a bad rip from the audio disks. I was also not very happy with the audio quality of the remaster, since it was not much of an improvement over the original three-disk set.

MY BAD!

Since I now owed 150 people who downloaded the files on faith alone, I went back to the non-MP3 source and started from scratch for this version, the second edition.

Now the good news: Man, was it ever worth it!

If you downloaded the previous version of this title, it is definitely worth your while to scrap it and download the 2nd edition. The original recording and the first remaster had a brassy midrange sound, with way too little bass and not enough highs. The sound quality of the new remaster is simply amazing. The bass is rich, the highs clean and clear. The detail of the recording knocked me out – I can easily pick out each instrument - and the stereo image is incredibly good.

There’s an excellent taper out there in Nagoya. My guess is that this recording was done using two boom- or stand-mounted microphones. There is no mic handling noise, no chatting near the mics, and none of the other usual distractions usually found in stealth audience recordings. Last week, another recording from Nagoya with the same characteristics turned up on a bit torrent tracker. It is probably more of this artist’s work. I would like to find even more of it.

Some tape hiss became more apparent in the process, but in deference to the taste of many, no noise reduction was used. Judging from the tape hiss, I would guess that my audio CD copy of the recording was made from a first-generation analog copy of either an analog or digital master recording.

Jose Salinas has updated his fantastic Japanese-style comic book art from the original “(re)Masters of Time.” The art files are included in the torrent.

Only a few seconds of applause were cut to make disk one of this set fit an 80-minute CD. The tracks on disk two are completely uncut. No music or stage announcements were removed. A tiny gap in the recording was excised from the very beginning of disk two. Some change in the level of tape hiss also occurs at this point, so there was probably a tape swap in the master recording at this point.

Century Hall, according to Forgotten Yesterdays, has a seating capacity of only 3,012. For Yes, that’s an intimate setting. The crowd is very attentive, and it treats the music with respect where it is deserved. You could hear a pin drop throughout Awaken. This is really something to behold.

Give the samples a listen, make space for the download, start leeching, and clear off the seat in the sweet spot of your listening room. I hear the first strains of The Firebird Suite starting now...
