LDB Special Series #15

Hello! Here is a new series from my collection. After the Master Series, here is the Special Series.
Out of my 6,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I'd like to propose you. Most of these come from my cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won't be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my reward for all the work involved in this project.

I have received this tape sometime in the early 90's from Japan. I have never seen this show circulating, so I thought it would be interesting to share it. No setlist was marked on my tape so I had to do some researches to find out the correct list. During Montreux jazz festival 1979, both Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman were listed: Steve as a solo acoustic set, while Rick was with his full band. Wakeman had invited Jon Anderson to join the band, so at one point it became natural to have all three Yes-men on stage. This was before the second leg of the Tormato tour would take place.

This is a live broadcast from Europe 1. The Wakeman show was broadcasted live, while the Howe set was broadcasted after the live, but recorded earlier in the day. The tape I have was a bit a mix of both sets, so I have re-arranged the setlist to have the Howe set first. Both shows are incomplete, but they are highly interesting. Wakeman band even features a trumpet and a trombone!

If you are intrigued by this show, please bear in mind a few things. This is the original 1979 broadcast (I don't think this show has ever been re-broadcasted ever since) and the recording shows its age, this means that:

  • the original broadcast was in AM / mono
  • there is some hiss in the recording, and the sound is somehow compressed
  • overall quality I would rate 7/10
  • there is a large amount of DJ talks (in french) between songs

But this is highly historical for the presence of Jon, Rick and Steve onstage outside Yes (the very first incarnation of the ABWH line-up maybe?), and because it features Howe singing (badly) on one track. The presence of Jon was not scheduled at all, according to the speaker.

Enjoy! LDB

I seeded this show some time ago (www.dimeadozen.org :: EzTorrent v0.7.0r495 :: Login), then Trazon was kind enough to send his partial version of the Wakeman set.
The quality was very much an improvement from my version (FM vs. AM!) so I have decided to insert all his version and fill the rest with what I already had. I have just crossfaded between Catherine Parr and Wolly Wooly Tango and although the transition is very smooth, you will of course note the difference in sound quality! But at least now we have 3,5 more tracks of this great show. According to the Montreux website (see below) there are three missing songs, although the site does not mention the mega-jam at the end of the show (or maybe is listed under 'Improvisation').

It took some time to get things done, but now here we are. Enjoy!
