Mike Millard recorded both the Los Angeles Forum (1975-06-21) and Long Beach Yes shows of 1975. For audio quality, this is the better of the two. The audio is much better to the two 1974 Tales shows, probably due to an upgrade of gear. You might think this was a soundboard recording, if you didn’t know better. As for the performance, Yes is hot, but there are some crackles and Jon’s voice is kind of ragged, as if the smog in Southern California was getting to him.

Art is not included with the torrent but I’m sure there is some floating around, and hopefully some friends will post theirs.

In 1975, Yes were:
Jon Anderson
Chris Squire
Steve Howe
Alan White
Patrick Moraz


Firebird Suite
Sound Chaser
Close to the Edge

This is an excellent audience recording of the entire show.

Here is a description of this recording that was in Record Collector Nov 2000 issue.

If the Young Vic show revealed the Who in a period of uncertainty, by the end of the year, thanks to the success of “Who’s Next” and constant gigging, LA Times critic Robert Hilburn spoke for many by describing them as “The Greatest Show On Earth”. This Long Beach concert catches the band feeding off a rowdy crowd, prompting Townshend’s infamous outcry: “This is a fucking rock’n’roll concert, not a fucking tea party!” (this comment was later used to introduce the “Thirty Years of Maximum R&B” box set).

“Baba O’Riley”, “My Wife”, “Behind Blue Eyes” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again” have already become an integral part of the set, with “Tommy” reduced to just five songs. It’s a shame “Bargain” wasn’t retained, as the band always performed it dynamically – listen to the San Francisco version, taped three nights later and releaed officially on the box set for confirmation.

A quality audience tape resulting in this well-known bootleg (the title refers to the ocean-going liner) first appeared in early 1972, albeit edited to a single album. In 1998, the full show appeared as a Japanese double-CD, restored right down to the original TMOQ artwork.

Ok folks, this one was a labor of love!

This show was probably the first soundboard cassette I acquired, many moons ago, and I have loved it
ever since the first time I listened to it. I can honestly say that if I absolutely HAD to pick one
show to listen to, this one would be it. Hell, after this little project I don’t need the recording…
I can play it back in my head note-for-note!

When I was adding in the aud patches to the original soundboard source, I worked with a program called
Multiquence to do the crossfades. I like a nice smooth transition from aud to sbd, and when I got the
the two sources in sync to do the crossfades, I noticed that the two sources together sounded pretty cool!
So after a while I decided to try to do a matrix-type mix and see what I came up with.

I had discovered that the soundboard source was pitched slow when I patched it with the aud, and I
corrected it for the 05/22/02 seed. As I began to try to sync up the two sources with more percision
for the matrix mix, I discovered that not only was it slow, the speed also varied constantly throughout
the entire recording. It varied only by a very small amount, and you could really only detect it by
doing this type of mix.

In Multiquence, using the aud source as the base, at the beginning of the recording I corrected the
speed of the soundboard source to match the aud. When it soon went out of phase, I made a virtual
split in the wavform just before it went out of phase. I then adjusted the speed of the new section,
using the peaks of the waveforms and my ears as guides to again match the aud source. Very soon again,
the soundboard source would slowly drift out of phase sometimes slowing, sometimes accelerating.
I would then repeat the split-and-correct process to get it back in sync. I ended up making 59 sections
for the First Set, and 93 sections for the Second Set. Some sections are only a few seconds long, and
some are a couple of minutes. The longest section I had was right around five and a half minutes.

It was a very painstaking process and I really wanted to make this thing sound good. The mix is 100%
soundboard and 50% audience, with 100% audience in the sections where there was missing material from
the soundboard source. In those areas I tried exceptionally hard to make the crossfades so smooth that
you can’t hear the transition from aud to sbd/aud at all. Well, I don’t think I got it just exactly
perfect, but if your not really paying attention too closely, you might not notice the transitions.
I know exactly where they are because I listened to ’em over and over and over and over and over again!

This is an absolutely FANTASTIC show (Willy would tell ya that the night before was better, and he was
there so maybe he’s right, but I dunno…). They boys were not just playing songs on this night, they
were creating an incredible universe complete with galaxies, planets, and stars. I swear this is a
magick recording. Every time I listen to it I hear something I hadn’t heard before, an accent is a
bit stronger or in a different place. Get baked and kick back with this one at a good listening
volumn and you WILL be taken there!

In the end, I think I got a better sounding recording than the aud or soundboard source alone. I know
there must be an easier way of doing this type of thing, with SMPTE time coding or something, but with
the tools I had available to me, I think it came out pretty cool! But you can decide for yourself, and
please let me know what you think.

Once again, major domo arigato to Willy and Chris Cantergiani for the SBD source discs, and to
Frater Pederabo for the AUD source discs!
