I remember this show like it was yesterday, though i was 14 at the time. it was a thursday nite and my parents let me go?? very much like the live video from that era...a highlight was the Awaken/Soon segment. i recall Soon sounding strange without Steve Howe's slide guitar, very churchlike. gimme some lovin'...not used to hearing many yes cover versions, this was a rocker. jon had some good banter, i actually recorded the show with a hand held walkman. totally distorted beyond belief. if anyone has a descent recording...) in retrospect, the lipsynching was wierd, just do it! good times.
'Master Of Images' was Anderson singing the entire 'master of images' part of 'Awaken' with Kaye on keyboards exactly the same way how 'Soon' was done on '9012Live - The Solos'.
