Perhaps some arrangements and time signature have been modestly modified to account for the affects of age. Perhaps Jon Anderson can't hit every high note with the extreme volume he could in the 70's. Beyond any sentimental remembrances of seeing the band live back then, I am absolutely not disappointed in the experiential value of this DVD. I've listed to "Awaken" many times over, and it still gives me the same thrill that playing it in the 70's for the first time. They are musically just a great band.
My only negative comments go out to the Director of the video. It starts out with way too many fast cuts endemic to a younger generation of music film makers. Fortunately, this starts to fade as the show goes on. It was as if the camera men and the producer had never heard Yes before, but finally began to understand the band as time passed. A little microphone glitch during "And You and I", but otherwise the sonics were superb. I won't bore you with the makeup of my system, but let's just say it's very good by anyone's standards.
I could take the poor video edits, but I had to drop it down one star due to the almost total absence of Chris Squire during most of the show. As noted in my above comments, I don't think it was until his bass solo that someone woke up at the editing console and said, "Wow, this guy is good. We should edit him into the film more!". Considering his animated style, wonderful bass skills, and vocal backup, it is just bewildering my he's barely show in this film.
I'd look forward to a re-edited version, but don't let that stop you from finding much to enjoy about this video.
The set list is as follows:
1-Siberian Khatru 2-Magnification 3-don't kill the whale 4-In the presence of 5-We have heaven 6-South side of the sky 7- And you and I 8-To be over 9-Clap 10-Show Me 11-Rick Wakeman solo medley 12-HEART OF THE SUNRISE (amazing version) 13-Long distance runaround 14-The Fish 15-Awaken 16-I've seen all good people 17-Roundabout
This is a work art!
Yes, I am that old......errr,
Steve, Chris, Rick,& Allen give an excellent show. Would love to see a '70s YES show even near this quality but I can't find one. Lucky to have this.
I had seen this concert, in HD, on 'Rave', about a year ago & wanted a copy to keep.
1080p beats 1080i every time.

Good but not as good as the acoustic recording. I bought this to add to my collection, however, I don't watch / listen to it as much as the acoustic one on DVD. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Amazon Customer
Saw the band Live in Detroit around 1977-78 and was blown away then and sadly never saw them again. It's a real treat seeing them (albeit video) years later and they're still... Read morePublished 23 months ago by KMT
