I saw that this show was posted here on 8-2-2008
with no link. Well, here is my version.
The history behind this posting is a little convoluted,
so bear with me. I acquired this vinyl version back in 1979.
I transfered it to cassette quickly, as was my common practice.
When I recorded the cassette I rearranged the tracks to fit
"America" on the end of side two. I have put the tracks back in order,
but there is a bit of a splice between "All Good People" & "Roundabout" (my apologies).
My original vinyl copy says this show is from "The L.A. Forum 10/16/1978".
I found the original cover at "Forgotten Yesterdays" and they have this show
listed at Wembley 10/28/1978. This has to be correct because Yes played "The Forum" on 10/6/1978
and did not have a gig on 10-16-1978. Anyway that makes this show thirty years old this week!!!
I have included the original cover (from "Forgotten Yesterdays"), my alternate cover (I made a couple of years ago), and the original tape case cover, that I got autographed by Steve Howe at a GTR show.
I assume this is a soundboard recording. If not, it is the greatest audience recording of Yes
I have ever heard. All I know is this has got to be my favorite version of "Starship Trooper" ever!
I will keep this one seeded as long as I can.
Enjoy this thirty year old classic Yes performance.
