Going for the One Tour
Remaster of an audience recording featured on the bootleg "Soleil Our Sights" received from Remy of the website Yessongs.NL (many thanks to him again)
Lineage: tape (unknown gear, unknown generation) -> Highland bootleg "Soleil Our Sights" -> FLAC -> Sound Forge -> FLAC
There was a remaster from Toolman already some years ago with the following comments:
This is a not-so-hot recording, released by Highland with one of their nonsense names. Naturally, Highland did nothing to improve the audio
on this recording, just spending their funds on the packaging.
I have made some improvements to the audio here, but with bass distortion in loud passages and parts missing from some of the tracks of this recording, there isn't a lot to do to rescue it.
Remaster made by me:
original flac files -> Magix Audio & Music Lab -> edit/remaster -> dime
Vg/Vg+ sound after some EQ was done. Sound level adjusted. Track markings arranged newly. There is some low frequency hum (no clue if this was in the original show) in some of the middle tracks which I did not remove in order to keep a balanced sound. The bass distortions could not be removed but all in all the recording is very listenable. The last 3 tracks of the "Soleil Our Sights" bootleg are not from the Heidelberg show but from Esslingen 01.12.77 and I decided to remove them from the remaster.
This show I attended when I was still a prog fan (ok I re-discovered this kind of music again in my older days). I can remember that the venue was so full with people that it was difficult to stay seated on the ground during the show. But this was still common at that time and so people were patient until Roundabout (which unfortunately is missing here) and latest then everybody was up on their feet and dancing (or something likely). I think this was Yes up on their peak and you could really feel how they enjoyed playing and the interaction between them all was just fantastic.
My friend Klaus Hiltscher made some great photos during the show (here: [Link]) and I used some of them for a new cover + extras which are attached here together with a copy of the ticket stub.
My thanks also go to Remy of Yessongs.NL who sent me the show some years ago and who has a fantastic website: [Link] He is such a nice guy!
