24 July 1971 New Haven, CT Yale Bowl
This is the register of an outstanding show by Yes, the last one from their first American tour. Keyboardist was Tony Kaye (actually he would leave the band some weeks after), and the set list has just four songs, all from The Yes Album:
1-Yours Is No Disgrace
2-Clap/ Classical Gas
3-I've Seen All Good People
They played so few songs because this was a double concert, they followed Museo Rosenbach. But what a great selection. The whole band plays perfectly, and highlights are many. Lots of Yes fans adore this bootleg, see a quotation from the site http://members.cox.net/teakbois/
This might be the greatest performance ever by Yes. This show got a lot of critical acclaim, which did wonders for the band. There are many different recordings of this one circulating. I consider this to be the holy grail of Yes concert recordings. Legend has it that a guy just plugged into the soundboard and no one complained. You got to just love the intensity during “Yours Is No Disgrace” and “Perpetual Change”. This is Yes at their absolute best!
Recommended for anyone who likes The Yes Album. Actually, anyone who likes Yes
