Artist: Circa (Yes & Ex-Yes)
Date: 2008-05-03
Venue: Rosfest, Keswick Theater, Glenside, PA, US

BILLY SHERWOOD- Lead Vocals & Basses
TONY KAYE- Hammond & Keyboards
ALAN WHITE-(RIP) Drums, Percussion & Vocals

Lineage: Zoom H4 (44.1 kHz/16 bit .wav mode, mid-gain input settings, internal comp/limit setting on),
w/ Sound Professionals/Audio Technica SP-CMC-2 cardioid external stealth mics,
thru Sound Professionals SP-Zoom-OmniMic-Phantom Power Interface;
2Gig SD memory chip; HD; Roxio Sound Editor (to split tracks); Traders Little Helper (encode to flac-6).
Nothing done to the recording.

Performance: B, Recording: B The sound for this show was very poorly mixed (the only show of the weekend that didn't have very good sound).
The Bad News: At the beginning of the set the bass was so freakin' loud that it hurt and drowned out the guitar, eventually they sorted it out a little bit and the show sounded ok by the time they got to the big Yes Medley.
The Good News: While the sound in the theater was poor and the guitar was mostly missing to my ears, having heard a little of the extra loud sound check I used the H4's internal "comp/limit" function and together with the mics that I used it picked up the guitar pretty well and dropped the overwhelming bass to reasonable.
The Bottom Line: Not a bad recording of a pretty cool show. Recorded from the 15th row, left center.

They played the entire "Circa:2007" cd in order, in its entirety, then went right into a 39+ minute Yes Medley - hitting a track or so from nearly every Yes release.
(I think the medley list is right, but corrections / upgrades are always welcome.)
