Dennis, I just looked at the January 24, 1988 entry for this concert (the actual, rescheduled date) on this website. The audio for "Shoot High" & other songs is up there! Scroll down past the setlist & reviews to see. Check it out!

Hey Dennis, note that there was a vinyl 2-lp bootleg of this show, "Live at the Hollywood Sportatorium" that I bought when it first became available. (I think it later came out on a boot cd as well). Other than the Houston concert, which was professionally recorded for one of those syndicated fm radio broadcast (Westwood One "Superstars" series, I believe), and partially released on Yes' "The Word Is Live" 3-cd mini box set (2005?), this is the best sounding "The BIG Tour" 1987/88 recording I have. I've forgotten if the sound was sourced from the best VIDEO I have from the same tour. I haven't watched it in a few years, but you saw a great show. With some EQ adjustments, it's the closest thing I've seen & heard to being at one of the shows that tour (I went to 5 of them), with the audience present but not overwhelming the music. This "Shoot High, Aim Low", along with the Houston version, are my two go-to live versions of the song. If you can get ahold of this (it may be on YouTube, I'll have to check), you will (sort of) be able to re-experience the concert.
Dear Mr.Wurm,OOPS!You're right!Getting older now,getting closer to the edge,I must Awaken and see all the good people and be on my way..........after all,the LIGHT is more powerful!GOD BLESS.......
