On the surface, segueing into “Wurm” from “Holy Lamb” seems like almost a travesty. During the Big Generator tour, Yes dropped the “Life Seeker” and “Disillusion” sections from “Starship Trooper” and just played “Wurm.” The three shows I saw I really didn’t like how it came off. Sure, the jam was great, but without the first half of the song it just didn’t seem right. But this combination from 11/19/87 in Springfield, Il., worked really well. They played an electric version of “Holy Lamb,” ending with a great solo by Trevor, and then neatly segued into “Wurm.” In my not-so-humble opinion, it worked great. Let me know what you think.
PS – I pulled this out of the vaults for mundaneDan in response to his comment in the Relayer Tour – Boston 1974 post, where he said he preferred the Trevor years. Ask and you shall receive!
