especially when they performed all four sides at madison square gardens ! i first saw yes in '78 in providence, and my butt was getting numb sitting thru all the long songs. think of what my butt would have felt like thru "tales" ! chris also used to play a rick 360 mapleglo. i think the films of "queen's park" show him playing it. i did find a clip of "seen all good people" with with chris playing a rick acoustic.
and chris eight stringin' on roundabout ! (bad audio)
