My Second Yes concert. Just as great as the previous summer. I have an apparently false memory of something off of Jon's album "Olias of Sunhillow"......couldn't tell you what. Does anyone remember if they were playing Olias during the set change after Gentle Giant?
GG was also absolutely jaw dropping, by the way, and was the first time I'd ever even HEARD them.
Considering the incredible new arrangements in 1976 of things like "Remembering", CTTE must have been beyond belief.
I had just moved to Seattle in Spring of '76 had only been to one concert (Wings) prior to the Yes show and they had the "Crab Nebula" set, which is hard to forget! It could be the blindess of hindsight, but I'm almost positive they played CTTE that night (as I had written the set list down after the concert, which I've since lost). Either way, it was a show to remember.
Yes expert Cliff Loeslin tells us he's certain the band played CTTE in Seattle on that tour.
