Every Little Thing - 1970 - Reuploaded

April 3, 1970. Cologne, Germany

This is one of the last shows with Peter Banks. The sound quality is better than the 1969 show in Belgium I posted here before. But not great, the voice doesn't sound very clear, but guitars and keys are quite good.
The show's repertoire is all from the first two albums. Just 5 songs, as it was a big festival with Deep Purple, Soft Machine and others.
An exciting performance, you can hear they're having lots of fun. Bill's playing is awesome. Due to time restrictions, they couldn't jam too much, and that brought down-to-earth performances of No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed and Everydays.

Set list:
No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed
Every Little Thing
Astral Traveller

Hey Martini, thanks for this great recording. This sounds really good, actually. (Almost as good the BBC recordings from that time.)

Early Yes with Banks were such groovy outfit.

Awesome, many thanks. Do you think a recording of Yes' gig at the Cream Farewell Concert in the Albert Hall gig on 26 November 1968 will ever surface?
