YES
Mount Pleasant 2013 [no label, 2CD]

Three Album Tour. Live at the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort, Mount Pleasant, Michigan; August 10, 2013. Very good audience recording.

Here is another show from the current Three Album Tour. Some fans also feel that (so far) this is one of the best-sounding, audience-recorded shows on this tour.

Thanks to ravingandrooling who recorded the show; and to MOB for mastering and sharing the show at Dime. Thanks also to Moonwall for the artwork.

Taper’s notes:

The band was electric from the first notes of CTTE and the sound quality was great. Crystal clear highs with bass that you could feel. The mix seemed very well balanced, which has not always been the case on this tour. I ran two separate recording rigs but chose to share the DPA 4061 version as these mics really shine in the right outdoor setting. From my perspective this is the best capture I have gotten from the four shows I attended on this tour. Enjoy!

Mastering notes:

Lowest frequencies were attenuated in order to avoid too much “booms” when Alan kicks his bass drum. Some other frequencies were slightly increased to be able to clearly hear Chris notes. For the high frequencies, some EQ was performed as well, because the cymbals on the rough recording had too much “ringing” sound. Levels adjustment was a big part of the remastering process, applauses and crowd noises being at higher volume than the music sometimes. Between songs, it was easy to correct. However, it was much more challenging to attenuate (manually) the audience clapping during songs.
I’m quite happy with the results, this recording can now be enjoyed LOUD, DEEP and CLEAR!

Recorded by: ravingandrooling

  2. If hanging out with Judas Priest at Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp in Vegas isn’t your thing, maybe setting sail with acts like Yes, Marillion, and Queensryche (which version, we’re not sure) during a Caribbean cruise is more your speed.

    The second annual Cruise to the Edge will depart Miami on April 7, 2014, for five days and nights of live music and visits to two beautiful Caribbean ports: Isla de Roatan, Honduras and Cozumel, Mexico.

    Bands on board include those mentioned above plus others like Steve Hackett and Genesis Revisited, Tangerine Dream, Renaissance and Saga. According to the cruise FAQs, each band will perform at least once and probably twice, and while there’s no promise of any formal autograph or photo sessions, those are always a possibility.

    In addition, Yes album design artist Roger Dean will be in attendance to “talk about the back story of his unique designs with a special art gallery where one-of-a-kind creations may be view[ed] and purchased.”

    Booking starts Thursday, Aug. 29, with base prices ranging from $799 all the way up to $6,598, which include your cabin, meals, non-alcoholic beverages and, of course, admission to the shows.

  6. Musically these guys are tight as a drum, and Chris Squire’s bass is particularly pronounced here. But every note they sing reminds you how they miss Jon Anderson, even with his diminished range.

  7. To all at Big O;
    Who keeps listening to this crap? Yes was never good and they have not improved over the years.

  9. Thanks BigO, sounds great for an audience recording. Dubious 141, just don’t download it if you dont like it. Hopefully you DVR’d the Joan Jett concert, listen to that.

  12. Hi Ed,

    Dime does not have the show you want.

  13. To all at Big O; Thank you very much, I guess I am out of touch if I prefer a shadow of what Yes was, to they stylings of Ms. Cyrus and Mr. Bieber. Keep up the good work, should you find some old Chilliwack or Wishbone Ash, it would make the Thompson sunsets smoother. Best wishes gang.

  14. “the stylings,” long day, softball vs. Louisana last night, football vs. Palmyra tonight, cross country in Mexico tomorrow morning followed by MS Bike-a-thon in Centralia and playground assembly in Sturgeon. Somewhere amongst that I will also farm a little. Be well friends. James

  15. James..you must be a fellow Canuck, I sure would love a good live soundboard of Rain-o…

    By sluggo on Sep 7, 2013

  16. Hey Sluggo, sorry not a Canuck, but did enjoy them when they played at Stephens College Columbia back in 77. Just one of those perfect venues when a group played in a hall that was made with acoustics and stage presentations in mind. My few trips to Canada have always had their great moments though. Fond memories. Have a great weekend. J

  17. Hey Sluggo, sorry not a Canuck, but did enjoy them when they played at Stephens College Columbia back in 77. Just one of those perfect venues when a group played in a hall that was made with acoustics and stage presentations in mind. I think the song I miss was called the “Last Days of May,” or something close to that. I realize that is also the name of a good BOC song. My few trips to Canada have always had their great moments though. Fond memories, good beer, good taekwond. Have a great weekend. J

    By James on Sep 7, 2013

  18. James you are welcome as an honorary Canuck anytime!
    I think the sing you are thinking of might be Last Day of December.

  19. A broadway style sign - “And in tonight’s performance, the role of Jon Anderson will be performed by Jon Davison. If you choose not to attend, refunds will be available at the box office. ” should be posted at every concert. PS. Similar signs at every Journey, Styx and Kiss concert as well.

  20. The whole Jon Anderson impersonator thing is a little silly, but thanks for posting this show.

  21. Bands change, people come and go. I love how some people are still mad Bruford left 41 years ago. Time to just get over it…

    By ictus75 on Sep 9, 2013

  22. Ictus… yeah, I know, but the fans are truly riffed. Jon was the voice of YES and will always be. Jon Davison does a good job, just like the singer for Furthur who emulates Jerry Garcia. Close, but saccharine to the band’s sugar… I miss Jon immensely, he was truly the guiding light. Peace.

    By Woodstock on Sep 11, 2013

  23. Thanks so much for posting, very nice. I feel like I’m the guy in the intro who says “I’m gonna try not to screw up your recording,Ok.” ravinganddrooling says “Thanks”. Great way to start a show. Still laughing on my end. Thanks again.
