The Revealing Science of God (1997)

From the Open Your Eyes tour, here is a wonderful performance of the first movement from Tales From Topographic Oceans. This is from the San Diego Civic Center on December 9, 1997, and was taken from a soundboard feed for an eventual radio broadcast. The nice thing about this recording is that it is pre-compression and other processing that is normally applied for broadcast. It’s amazing to think that the Tales material is still being played after all these years. When I first heard YES in 1981, I never thought I’d hear any of Tales live. The same goes for “Gates of Delirium.” What a blessing.

    Yes please post more songs from this show. It sounds Amazing in every way ! And the band is playing great ! It is nice to have the historic things but stuff like this sounds so good I would tend to listen to this quality of recording much more. In fact i have listened to this song at least 25 times this week.
