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