Circa: The Yes Medley (2008)

Ok, I for one have been wanting to hear this for as long as I have known about it. For the uninitiated, Circa: is a new Yes-related band consisting of Billy Sherwood, Alan White, Tony Kaye and Jimmy Haun (augmented live with Billy’s brother Michael). They have an excellent album out. Buy it here – I promise, you won’t be disappointed.

Anyway, for the live shows, the first set is the album from start to finish. Then they come back for a second set and play an extended instrumental of Yes history, from the first album to The Ladder (Magnification is left out for some reason). In short, it is very cool. This was recorded at Rosfest at the Keswick Theater in Glenside, PA, on May 3, 2008. Quality is A except for a few glitches here and there (the opening, some overloaded recording levels during part of the 1978 section). This is a big file (54+MB & almost 40 minutes) so to save bandwidth, please remember to download it once and save it instead of streaming it from the website several times.

The spirit of Yes lives on, regardless a tour cancellation or not. Here’s to Circa: carrying on the Yes magic while Jon heals.
