|Quality:||VG stereo (not much separation), audience recording|
|Comments:||The bootleg reference guide, "Hot
Wacks" lists this as "Excellent Mono". Don't be fooled. The quality of
this recording is far short of excellent, even for an audience recording.
On the plus side, this record is cut at the correct speed, but on the minus
side, the audience noise is very high. One can hear them cough, yell, clap,
talk to each other and sing-along during the songs.
Complete show from the 90125 tour. Anderson is in good voice, and Rabin avoids guitar heroics and excesses. Squire's bass is not very audible in this mix.
Although this title is not "the worst Yes bootleg, ever",
it's definitely not one of the best. Performance-wise, Say Yes is
ok, but is unlikely to provide decades of listening pleasure. If you can
locate it for a reasonable price, like $25.00, it would be worth it. Otherwise,
don't pay a fortune for it.
