Notes by the taper
This is my first attempt at recording, which was inspired by AForestFan at TCC (who was awesome at answeering all my questions). Thanks as well to nausearockpig who agreed to master it and clean things up as required. We were just in front of the soundboard to the left. This was my seventh time seeing them and did not disappoint with a good Disintegration-themed set. The crowd was probably a bit more into the pop songs that they could sing along to. I like the noisy ones you can headbang to and best song for me was One Hundred Years for the power and the visuals. Runners up were It Can Never Be The Same and Disintegration but all of it was great. was great to see the band with Reeves in action as well - he is a great player. Simon was pretty fun to watch too and did laps of the stage to keep us all amused. Total playing time was a hair over three hours not including the encore breaks. 

NRP notes: 
* The feedback outro of From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea merges into the sampled intro of Want. It sounds rad! 
There are a few fade outs & ins & small edits to remove any unimportant crowd noise, other than that I didn't do much to what is a very good capture. Biggest thanks to Psychophysio for taping and passing to me to edit. Great stuff bloke!

Although I didn’t record this, I was at this gig on the second row, right in front of The Ox’s backline, so as you can imagine he was very dominant throughout the evening. I thought they were on fire that night. There was another version of this doing the rounds, but this one is much better quality in my opinion. Enjoy!

Comments by the taper: 
I can't say enough about The Egg. I just love this venue. The acoustics are absolutely fantastic. This was a great show. This tour is the best they've sounded since 2004. This show was no exception. I was fortunate to be sitting in a sweet spot, and there is no chatter, or the usual "Billy, you the man!" screams that are normally heard at Yes concerts. I think much of this stems from the fact that while there is a bar in the lobby, you are not allowed to bring drinks inside the venue. Less drunks means less inane crowd noise! 

As for the recordings, I made two seperate recordings using both sets of microphones I own. They both came out spectacular. These are perhaps, the best sounding recordings I've made in the 11+ years of recording shows. This version was done with my trusty Sound Professional set up, which I find sometimes causes a little bit of low-end distortion that I am usually able to mix out of my recordings. That did not happen here. This one sounds fantastic. I have had really great luck with this setup recording at The Egg. I am having a tough time deciding which of the two recordings I like better. You can't really go wrong with either one. If I had to pick one, I would probably pick this one.

Comments: I love The Egg! Some may be familiar with some of my other recordings, back in 2007 I made one of the best audience recordings I have ever heard at this venue. Unfortunately, that band is no longer allowed on the sharing sites. You can imagine how psyched I was Yes was playing this great venue. It's small, it holds 982 people I think. It was probably only about 90% filled. But the acoustics are fantastic. I was sitting in the sweet spot, just a few seats over from where I was back in 2007. This was the second show of the tour, and the first full length show. I was a bit worried after reading the reviews from the first show, but I was pleasantly surprised. This was a good performance, with only a couple of early tour miscues. (The middle of South Side...I thought Geoff did a great job with it, but Alan seemed to be the one having the trouble, and of course Five Percent). There's also a buzzing noise on some of the keyboard sections of Heart Of The Sunrise, but that was present in the theater, and not an artifact of the recording. I was somewhat surprised at the inclusion of the two new songs. Not so much that they played new material, more about the song selection. They released "Believe Again" as a single, and it's available to stream on Spotify, so that's one a lot of fans may have heard, but they picked two other songs instead. They seemed to go over well, and they were well played. 

The recording came out great I think. But that's what I expected at this venue. I was using a new battery box this evening, after having some trouble with my old one the last time out. It passed the test pretty well I think. This was a fun show, and this is a nice document of the evening.
