Also, I see somebody else grew up in Philly area. I saw PF at the Electric Factory and 2 or 3 times at the Spectrum. Saw ELP a few times also at the Spectrum. On the Tarkus tour, Yes opened for them.

A lot of Philly fans here it seems. Those were the days- Philly was definitely a huge Yes town, with good ol' Ed Shciaky (sp?) leading the way. I remember hearing about the Electric factory, but never saw a show there- where was it? I always thought that the Tower was the best place to see a show in Philly, with the exception of the Academy of Music, but I only saw jazz and classical there.
The Electric Factory was on around 22nd and Arch. Yes, the Tower Theater was the best place to see bands back then. Genesis, Bowie, Roxy Music, Jeff Beck, Crack the Sky and others I've forgotten, I saw there.

About all I remember about the '76 outdoor show was that I pulled an all nighter on the sidewalk, rushed to get in, got a great place to sit in the center, not far from the stage, but never found my friends once we got separated.
I think that first Yes concert was the Tales tour, but again but memory is hazy from that era for some strange reason smile.gif. I got the album for my Bar Mitzvah, so I was quite familiar with it. Just had it out last weekend, the jacket is still in reasonably good shape.

Hazy memories- can't imagine... rolleyes.gif I thought I that Tales didn't release until after (or maybe half-way thru) the tour, but I could be mis-remembering (high the memory). So you were 13 when you 1st saw Yes? That's awesome. Too bad for the missing memories- started partying very young huh?

One of the best- if not the best- shows I've ever seen was at the Tower. Jerry G on acoustic, mostly solo but a few songs had (i believe Kahn) on an upright Bass. It was the best of times, worst of times deal... Mid-August and the Tower's AC had broken. Not only the show was incredibly hot... I remember sweat just pouring out of me, but the music was so transporting that I barely noticed. It was an "electric" night (hint hint) so I have no real specific memories, but I certainly remember the incredible feelings. I hadn't even been into the Dead that much, but Jerry blew me away. Not only could he pick, but he could deconstruct a theme and put it back together in so many different, delightful ways... Meditation thru music indeed.

I think I may have been at the show, any idea what year it was?

GREAT NEWS! THE DISCS WILL NOW BE HIGH-RESOLUTION DVD-AUDIO DISCS

Confirmed by Steven Wilson: "The ELP / Tarkus reissues will include full res DVDAs - I talked them into it, but it's just meant delaying the release a little longer."
post #66 of 195
Have BSS on order from amazon. 44.00
Been listening to Floyd's Wish you were here on SACD 43.00 amazing sound
Was at the show way back when also awesome in surround live.
To the YES fans - Magnification surround mix done by Tim Wiedner who also did Fragile.
Both sound excellent. Tales would work great too. I was lucky enough to catch every Yes tour since tales but had to stop going after seeing them without Jon.
Great thread to have discovered. THANKS to all.

No idea. Was never a big fan of the Dead or Jerry G.

"82 I believe- give or take a year. Hard to believe you could have been at that concert and not remember it- between the incredible show and the intense sauna, it was pretty unforgettable.

Wow, that's just fantastic news! As if SW isn't already on my list for sainthood, this just confirms it.

I guess you would agree that seeing Yes without Anderson is not worth it? Unfortunately, it looks like I may take a hit for it, but I'm going to try to get rid of my tickets.

i did see them with Benoit at a small club in Baltimore several years ago and his vocals were spot on. Unfortunately Squire apparently refuses to rehearse enough to change the setlist and unless they chose to do a set of songs never played live before i see no reason to attend any more shows.
I will say that the FOH mix has been pathetic ever since the Talk tour and never understood why Clair brothers and Yes did not insist on having someone in that position who knew the material.
Anyway I rant......After five years it did get a little better but I'll not pay to see another.

BTW thanks for responding. It appears from the post 's I've read of yours I have many questions you would have the answers to. smile.gif

Got the following from Burning Shed this morning:
"Many thanks for buying one or both of the 2012 Emerson, Lake & Palmer cd/dvd reissues from Burning Shed.

We've just been informed by Sony, the record label behind the reissues, that the release date has been put back to August 27th."


Hard to believe we're getting DVD-A from a Sony label. My how times have changed...

Steven Wilson convincing whomever at Sony to release in the DVD-A format if not the Apocalyspe, is damn close.
This guy is truly unique and imo stands with Chad Kasem as a curator and a genius when it comes to true high-fidelity music.

Even if he never did another project his work on Aqualung is miraculous.
As astounding he gets involved and resurrects King Crimson in hi-res 5.1! King F*ing Crimson.
Certainly not everyone's cup of tea but on any level you can't deny the musicianship of any incarnation of this band.
And what's unreal is that I love King Crimson as much as I love any musician or band with the exception of John Fahey & Neil Young.
I saw the TOAPP version live and The League of Crafty Guitarists. Both events were transcendent music experiences.
Apologies for the gush.

Pre-ordered both these from Amazon UK.
I haven't heard them in so long it's meaningless, but I can hardly wait.

Haven't seen this anywhere on this site, but got the info here:

http://www.quadraphonicquad.com/foru...n-5-1-Surround


ELP is getting their 1st 6 albums re-mastered and w/ 5.1 as well, according to their website. The 1st two, ELP and Tarkus are up for pre-order at amazon.uk:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Emerson-Lake...g=bluraycom-21

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tarkus-Lake-...g=bluraycom-21



3 disc sets:

1: CD with original mix in most recent remastered form /

2: CD with new stereo mix of the album and unreleased pieces and alternate takes found on the tapes /

3: DVD with 5.1 mix and all the stereo material.


And who's doing the mixes? None other than Mr. Wilson himself! Very much looking forward to this, esp. Tarkus and Pictures at an Exhibition (already have BSS dvd-a, of course).


No news on 5.1 codec, but since this is a Sony project (ELP recently sold catalog rights to them), everyone is assuming no dvd-a or sacd; best we can hope for is DTS 24/96, apparently. To me, the quality of the mix is much more important than the codec, even if its lossy. Since the fabulous SW is doing the mix, these should be tasty indeed!

Any confirmation that those URLs to amazon.co.uk are indeed for the DVD-A version?

According to the site, this ships Aug 27, yet the reports say the DVD-Audio version ships Sept 11?

Just ensuring I order the correct version, as I absolutely want the DVD-A set.

I pre-ordered from Burning Shed which specifically lists DVD-A, with an Aug. 27th release date.

AFAIK there is no other version of this set, just the 2 CD + DVD-A (and the separate vinyl release).
BTW the Burning Shed site has not replaced there earlier statement at the bottom of the page saying that the 5.1 mix is probably DTS. Now that info is obsolete.

I agree that it appears there is only one version. Just wanted to point out that the set is slated to be released on Aug. 27, even with the DVD-A, according to Burning Shed, which I trust more than Amazon.

thanks guys, I pre-ordederd via Amazon.co.uk,and got them for 9 Pounds and free shipping. If this is the real-deal, then quite the bargain.

Also scored the new Galahad album Battle Scars (plain stereo unfortunately) and, pay attention to this, the Squackett album in DVD-Audio 5.1

AFAIK, this Squackett set is ONLY available at amazon.co.uk, I could not find it stateside, or at least not the confirmed DVD-A version.

You mean the US release. I can't see any change in the release date on amazon.co.uk or hmv.com ( still Aug 27).

There is mention from a Burning Shed representative on another forum that they may be shipping as early as tomorrow.
