YES: PROGENY – Live from Seventy-Two

Yes are about to release a box set of seven live shows from their Fall 1972 US Tour, with a not so newly anointed Alan White on drums. The tapes are purportedly the source tapes for some of the 1973 Yessongs triple album and having been restored completely in the analog realm. The dates of the taps are as follows, with the same set list each night. A 2CD or 2LP sampler will also be released, and that's what I'll be in for.

Recording Dates:
31 Oct 1972: Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
