Here's another set of unliberated gems I found whille tripping through YouTube, and this one has some historical significance. It's from the first night of the Tormato tour (Tour-mato?) in Rochester, NY, at the War Memorial. Forgotten Yesterdays seems to think this show took place at the Rochester Auditorium Center, but the ticket stubs included say otherwise.
The date is August 28, 1978, about a month before Tormato released in America. Five tracks from the album were performed here for the first time anywhere, including "Release, Release", and they are all included in this recording of this show. The 10th anniversary medley was also performed for the first time, and about ten minutes of it are present here; it cuts out during Jon's quote of the lyrics to "Survival". Additionally, Forgotten Yesterdays also does not list "Don't Kill the Whale" as being performed at this show, but this recording proves it was. It comes after "Circus of Heaven", which is the same setlist arrangement as Yes' next concert of the tour in Buffalo, NY, on the 29th.
As with the Rich Stadium recording, I am presenting these ripped as .WAV and converted to .FLAC from the YouTube uploads. The only edits I've made to this recording are cutting out some brief moments of machine hiss. Now, the actual music is listenable, but fairly worn. There are also some variations within the actual taping; The cut "Siberian Khatru" and what little is there of "Heart of the Sunrise" sound muffled compared to the other songs, but I don't think they're from a different source. There's also a brief drop out and cut during "Long Distance Runaround" in the medley. What you hear is what you get, and in my opinion, what you get is a pretty cool piece of audio curios.

As always, share the files as lossless and go about your day. And don't buy any online, unless it's a rare Highland boot no one's discovered and shared yet.
