Albuquerque, New Mexico
Many people say that this is not the best period for Yes shows, but I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The cartoons that opened the show were a hit when Bugs Bunny said "I knew I should have turned left at Albuquerque." This was my 4th Yes show (previous shows in 76/77/78), and I was not disappointed. It was actually quite nice to have the show take on a different feel with this new lineup. Trevor & Tony didn't make the show better or worse than before, just different. This hall has terrible acoustics (it's a Rodeo barn, actually), but Yes made the sound work pretty well. My recording of this show has been offered on YesSwap, complete with cover art from my pictures.
