Union Tour: Stuttgart 1991

How about a few from the Union tour?

This is one of my favorite eras of Yes, even if the album itself was pretty sad (but it did have some great moments). The tour, on the other hand, was amazing. I was blessed enough to see them three times during the tour, one of them from the front row. Memories I will never forget.

Here are three songs from May 31, 1991, in Stuttgart, Germany: “Shock to the System” and “Lift Me Up” from Union, plus “Awaken”. These come from a radio broadcast, so the quality is top-notch, which should satisfy those with issues over the sound quality of some of my previous posts.

I included “Awaken” even though I posted an excellent version from the 35th Anniversary tour previously. But “Awaken” was the center piece of the show, and any Union post would be incomplete without it. I have always loved the way they performed this, especially how Bill Bruford and Trevor Rabin tastefully played, adding so much more to the sound textures. This is truly a group performance!

The torrent I downloaded these from is available here. It’s not the complete show, but what you get sounds amazing.
