Yes 1977-09-22 Oakland Coliseum Arena, Oakland, CA



Yes 1977-9-22 Oakland Coliseum Arena, Oakland, CA

This recording has never been distributed before.
It was recorded on an early mono Sony Recording Walkman (undefeatable AGC, sorry) from the audience in the fairly cavernous Oakland Colosseum Arena (about 1/3 back & halfway up, stage left risers), hence it is not a great recording.
Certainly listenable though, I give it a C+, though it rises to about a B in many spots.
There are some dropouts on the master, and the ends of 'Awaken' and 'And You And I' had to be patched due to batteries running out.
(The patches came from a boot of the Chicago show on the same tour.)
The encore of 'Roundabout' was (of course) performed at this show but did not get recorded.
There are also a few distracting audience noises & clearly audible comments, the most egregious being the moron who yells out 'Hey Wakeman, do a sola!' during the quiet part of 'Awaken'.
Despite these flaws, it is an excellent performance and Yes collectors will find it enjoyable.
If there is a better recording of this same performance, I'd love to hear it.
I will post a few samples in a bit.

Source: > mono cassette MASTER> digitized and mastered in 1997- denoised with Arboretum Ionizer> dynamic range expanded and EQ'd with WAVES C4 and Renaissance EQ in Peak 2> MacFlac

Disc One:
1.01 Firebird Suite (1:48)
1.02 Parallels (6:26)
1.03 I've Seen All Good People (7:24)

1.05 Wonderous Stories (4:55)
1.06 Colours Of The Rainbow (:58)
1.07 Turn Of The Century (8:29)

Disc Two:
2.01 And You And I (fades in, dropouts at top) (9:54)
2.02 Going For The One (6:06)
2.03 Awaken Jam (4:30)
2.04 Awaken (16:39)

A couple of thoughts on this performance:

1. I was outraged, OUTRAGED I tell you, that tickets for this show went for the then oh-so-steep price of $7.50. Why, I had never paid more than $6 for a show in my life to that point! If only I knew then what I know now!

2. The laser & light show at this performance was hands down the best I'd seen at a rock show before or since. During Awaken, the laser beams generated seemed to mimic the art of the lines on the 'Going For The One' album cover. Simply outstanding. (It is at that point that you can hear the guy next to me admonishing the moron next to him for taking flash pictures of the light show, blinding about half the row. Exactly what did he think would come out on that photograph?) I saw the show the next night and there was no laser show; maybe it was broken, but I never saw lasers at a Yes show again. Someone suggested that they stopped using them for fear of a lawsuit. Can anyone verify if lasers were used on any date from this tour on or after 9/24/77?

Notes: Another transfer from a VHS I got from Andre Fantarrow - lo gen, not sure how low.

Transferred by direct wire from VHS to DVD recorder, then recompiled using Ulead Movie Factory.

It's from a reasonable distance back, left of centre.  Close-ups are good, but because of the distance, it's not exactly pin sharp; and at times it can get a bit blurry and/or juddery.  Screen caps attached to listing.

I did hit a little snag that, in order to take out a messy bit between the main set and the encores, I got bad lip synch.  The only way to address this was to separate them into two sets - main and encore.  Play all and you'll get all, however.
