Nice Audience A- recording. Between the tracks 5 ‘Clap’ and 6 ‘Heart Of The Sunrise’ a short  fade-out/fade-in due to a tape-flip. From this source is also made the remaster  ‘YesStorm’ by Shaun Toole Taper unknown. According to the uploader of this torrent this is the1st gen of a copy from a Silver Disk. That could be two ‘Suite Distance’ and ‘The Wizard Of Yes’, Highland HL507/508. Which one is not known but from the first one artwork is availible and the setlist is right
