Comments: Here's the final of my three Yes recordings from the Heaven & Earth/Fragile/Close To The Edge tour. Yes played the Oakdale four times between 1998 and 2002, but haven't been back there since. This theater has really nice acoustics, and like the Albany and Boston shows, sound was great where I was sitting. It looks like they've decided on a set list to stick with, so once again the only new track was "Believe Again". The show was pretty good from a performance standpoint, but "Five Percent For Nothing" was truly a train wreck this time out. I was hoping that since it was a 34 second song they would try it again after the first attempt, but no such luck.

The recording is excellent. I couldn't be more pleased how the three shows came out. As I mentioned, the acoustics are great at the Oakdale. This was my first time recording anyone at the theater proper (they have smaller shows in "The Dome" section which serves as the lobby for the theater shows, and the acoustics in The Dome are brutal). The crowd gets a bit rowdier toward the end of the show, but there is nothing too distracting on the recording.

Thanks Relayer. This does sound nice. I would rate this very good, but not excellent. You should mortgage your house, so you can buy a pair of Schoeps, Neumann's or AKG's. But, I really do appreciate your efforts and am enjoying the concert very much. Love that "South Side of the Sky".
