Going for the One (1977)

Looking at the posts so far, I realized I didn’t have anything from the Going for the One tour. That is partly because until now, I haven’t had good recordings from that era. But a few recent posts on Dime have changed that, and I now can offer a decent recording from that wonderful tour.

Here is “Going for the One” from the Paris, France, show on December 6, 1977, which was the last night of the tour. I chose this song even though I posted the same song from the 2004 tour in the previous post, because it is a great, high-energy version with a cool intro. It’s also interesting to compare this to the 2004 version – both have their positives, but this one has a lot more energy, not to mention the sound guy knows how to mix Steve’s slide! Enjoy…

    Anyway we can get a live version of “survival” or perhaps “The Miracle of Life?”

    Sorry to be ignorant of this stuff. But when you say Dime, what site are u talking about. Do you think you could post a link to the yes section, with possible some instructions. Dime sounds awesom, I just can’t find it.

    Hey Rich, it’s me. I just posted something new on Yesfans.com in the Yesmusic section, encouraging people to share their live / rare material. I need you to back me up. I noticed you haven’t been updating the site much these days, so I’m sure you’re real busy. Anyway, if you have time, check out the thread and maybe write something or post something. Hope all is well with you.
