Songs from Tsongas DVD

According to Amazon, the DVD will be released on February 22nd, 2005, instead of December 7th, 2004, in the US, as was listed the day before yesterday.

Once again, someone's asleep at the switch. Can someone in management EVER explain the endless delays in every one of Yes' products the past few years? What's the point of releasing a release date when they never come to pass?

I was all set to buy 4 copies of this DVD--1 for me and three for friends/relatives.

Since Crazy Eddie had his "Christmas in July" sales years ago, it looks like we'll be having "Christmas in February" here.

The latest update on Yesworld states that this DVD will contain "selections" from the Summer 2004 tour.
The word 'selections' I find rather ominous. It suggests to me that we will not be getting the full show. I just hope that it's not another hotch-potch mixture, of music and talk along the lines of 'Yesspeak'.
With the release date only 4 weeks away, I'm suprised that there is still no informaton on the track listings.

I must say whoever's doing the managing and marketing for this band is doing a rather shitty job. It's pissing all of us off!!!

Hell, for we know, Jon's solo DVD will probably get pushed way back as well. What the fuck is going on here?!!!!!

i got this wonderful dvd for my birthday and have played it a couple of times by now. it is just as how i remembered the concert from the second row, right in front of rick.
it has clear picture with many close-ups of the guys and a good sound. the only thing that annoys me from time to time is that jon is mixed just a tiny bit louder than the band, sometimes making it hard to hear all the music.
another thing is that the bonus material promised with interviews of the members, backstage footage et al is only a short interview with roger dean and jon plus a few comments from rick.
other than that it is a most enjoyable dvd, definitely a must-have!

I bought it last night and watched a few tracks. So far, I am underwhelmed. To be fair, I plan to spend more time with this over the weekend, but I am comparing this Tsongas show to the show in San Diego from the same tour and the comparison is not favorable for Tsongas.

"Rhythm of Love" is not one of my favorite Yes songs, but I was really impressed with this one in San Diego. Steve just freakin' wailed on the solo. The Tsongas version was simply not good. I feel the same about South Side. The band seemed out of sync in places and Steve was way too low in the mix in important places.

I know I am new to this board, posting-wise: I've lurked over the years. But I am not new to Yes. I am extremely supportive of the group and my comments above are not meant to imply dissatisfaction with the boys. I am just disappointed because I know how good they really are and I feel that for one reason or another, their true greatness has never been caught live.

Videos from their prime are crippled by the lack of good fidelity and the most recent offerings have other problems. Slow tempo (e.g. CTTE never seems to capture the true frenetic nature of the opening on the studio version), mixing issues (for one reason or another, most live versions skew the mix so that one person or another is left out), etc. I dunno, maybe their music is too nuanced to capture correctly in live settings.

Sorry to be negative, it is just frustrating that my favorite group seems to have this problem with their live recorded legacy. I think they are better live than in the studio, typically. IMO, it has just never been captured correctly.

SFS The Best Yes DVD?--

Postby thesage » Fri Aug 19, 2005 3:30 am

I was able to pick up a copy on a recent OS trip and I would say that generally speaking this is an excellent DVD which captures YES towards the end of their career- sorry folks just the simple truth. Most tracks are played with suprising gusto, although the slightly slower tempo is noticeable, as are the occassional bum note. Whilst I really enjoyed the acoustic set, I would have liked the full version of wonderous stories, mind you it has suprising charm as an acoustic piece. I think owner sits much better with this line up as an acoustic piece, which brings me to the low point of the DVD ( for me)- thats Rythymn of Love- As much as I like Steve Howe, I have to say that he simply doesn't play the track with the same aggressive approach as Trevor- and whilst Steve in many ways is a much more romantic stylist, who tend to go for "cleaner" sounds, this track needed a much richer distortion with a lot more aggressive playing- otherwise a very good DVD_ is it their best--- no- I would argue ABWH Evening of Yes music is by far the best concert footage available followed by Union.

A Fantastic Piece of Work

Postby yestalker » Sun Sep 04, 2005 4:23 am

This was worth the extremely long wait!!!!!!!!!!!!! These guys never seem to disappoint. I saw them the nite before they filmed this, at the Mohegun Sun Casino in Connecticut ,and they played with the same vigor and intensity that they did the nite before. Although, I would have to say that the crowd seemed more into the nite I saw them. The filming and the editing are top notch. The sound and the picture are dynamite. Great setlist, highlighted by the better than average light show, Roger Deans blow up dolls, and the awesome acoustic set. They are always looking to give the fans something different (Masterworks Tour, Synphonic Tour). These guys are so frigging tight, it is scary. To those who are so damn critical of these guys, tell me who does it better. Peace :icon_drin :bong

I can answer that plain and simple: Yes, Ritual fucking rocks!!!!!!!!!! I wish the whole interlude could've been just a bit louder and a bit longer, but I don't care, because it was awesome! I liked this version of it better than Yessymphonic's version of it. Plus, those roto-toms look absolutely awesome!!!!!!!!

The main thing I still wish is that Mind Drive had been played in its entirety, uninterrupted, but hey, at least they finally played some damn Key-era material, even a little footprint of, uh, Footprints. :jestera:

I got it few days ago

Postby Greenglade's Frog » Sat Oct 08, 2005 12:24 am

This was OK, pretty fun. Watched some songs, skipped around to get an overall feel for it. $19 for a double DVD, couldn't pass it up.
I suppose if I had a home theater system and turned it up real loud and had a little party it would be better.
Going for The One- pretty good. Jon has a different attack. Steve's slide guitar is interesting. Better version on Keys to Ascension, but that was dubbed or re-constructed, no?
Sweet Dreams- nice to have some really vintage stuff. Steve gets in some good guitar work at the end.
Mind Drive- Finally, a new tune. Interesting.
YIND- watched sections. Still better on Yessongs.
The Meeting- very good Wakeman piano solo
The entire unplugged section-Well, I can learn to appreciate it. Really, casual. Steve's guitar sounds light as a feather in parts. "Owner" , as acoustic version???
Second Initial- cool ragtime solo guitar.
Haven't heard all of Ritual and the rest of the DVD yet.

In any case, I'd recommend that one buy Keys to Ascension and [color=#006400]Yessongs before this one.[/color]

I like this more on second viewing.
Mind Drive was good.
AGP YMove was ok, but the AGP was sort of lackluster guitar-wise.
