Late Night FDL: Heart of The Sunrise

Yes – Heart of the Sunrise

Yes has a new album out, Like It Is — Yes at the Mesa Arts Center…

On July 10, Yes will release Like It Is — Yes at the Mesa Arts Center, a two-CD/DVD collection that was recorded on their most recent U.S. tour. You can watch “Heart of the Sunrise” from that performance above.

The video captures their Aug. 12 stop in Mesa, Ariz. On that tour, Yes performed two of their most successful albums, 1971′s Fragile and 1972′s Close to the Edge, in their entirety. But for some reason the video begins with the later album. You can see the full track listing below.

“That evening in Mesa, Ariz., was a great one,” bassist Chris Squire notes in a press release announcing the DVD. “The audience was fantastic. They loved the music and really made it a very special night for us. And we were in top form. The music sounded great and we could have played all night. Like It Is brings the magic and wonderful music of that evening to fans everywhere, and we’re sure they’ll enjoy listening to it as much as we did performing it.”

This summer, Yes will embark on a five-week co-headlining tour with Toto. Tickets also went on sale yesterday for their third annual Cruise to the Edge, which will run from Nov. 15 – 19 and feature Marillion and Martin Barre of Jethro Tull this year.

    G’evening all to come. This LN community has become addictive to me. The FDL site less and less.

    But tonight, at least, I have a big, long box to type my comment in, so yippee!

    Still on mobile or on an actual computer. Not that I have anything against using cell to browse but disqus and other things are NOT cell friendly.

    What would be nice is if FDL had a link specifically for mobile users. A lot of sires do.

    It seems “thugs” has become the new “n” word. Except that those who are so inclined feel completely free to call “thugs” “thugs”, because … Obama does! (see following asterisks).

    I first noticed this racist usage in comments at the Guardian, then saw it a few more times in troll comments at other sites, so … off I headed to the freerepublic* where, yep, it was all over the place (as much of the place as I could stomach to visit, anyway).

    * I know, I know. But, keep your friends close, and your enemies ….

    Oh, hell, cmk … I followed your link, came back to the site, got caught in Disqust “Reload?” Purgatory, but, worst of all … I’m back to that damn one-line Comment box at the top!

    The list says Disqust supports Android versions 1.6+. I’m running version 4.1+.

    Disqust just really isn’t cell phone friendly … at all.

    I wish someone would post your list – and many other helpful comments you and other FDLers have provided – somewhere at the TOP of the front page.

    Maybe if we all chip in and recommend the hell out of your comment above as well as similarly useful ones, Management will notice.

    Thanks for the link.

    What might be the new “d” word?

    Or should we not go there? Hell, it’s FDL. Anyone got any suggestions?

    I refreshed my screen and turned off Android’s Load images about halfway through reloading – and got my full screen Comment box at the top!

    Go figure THAT one out!

    (I thought to do that, because I remembered my actions when first getting in, which I took because FDL was loading so slowly at first.)

    That would be great! I know oldhippiejan – commenting now at FDL as social misfit – was terribly distressed that Disqust would not let her use oldhippiejan (her FDL name for 6 years). She was on a PC. If I had had access to a PC (so I could see what she was seeing), I would have found a way to, step-by-step, walk her through her dilemma, but I’m stuck on a cell for now, and I could only watch while others tried to help, not successfully.

    But … you used a sexual term – pricks -that did not start with an ‘r’ – which took my mind to … a sexual term that does not begin with ‘d’.

    Can anyone tell me how to “recommend” an article/post?

  21. TalkingWarrior
    May 15, 2015 at 1:06 am

    I wish NightriderXP1 would return. He/she got Sonenstein to take him/her seriously, then went over Sonenstein’s tech knowledge, who began taking notes to give to “the developer” – all this in Comments below the Changes article.

    Gosztola (sp?) also thanked “the [unnamed] developer” in his article. My thought was that “the developer” is a hired consultant, who, as Nightrider suggested, is smart enough to be following our comments as feedback on the site – if we squeak loudly enough.

    under the number of comments at the start of the comments, there is a heart. click on that to recommend a post.

    to recommend a comment, click the up arrow (or to vote down the down arrow) at the bottom of the comment in question (next to the reply thingie)

    Thank you. I’ve never seen any number beside the Comments at the start of Comments on my Android screen; have always had to refresh then see what number appeared at the very top of the article beneath the title.

    BUT, I translated your instructions to my view and just recommended this article. 🙂

    So, in modern American we call the traitors/bastards/idiots responsible for this current mess … shit (as in one big, co-mingled heap of it) or shits (as in individual pieces of it)?

    I like the singular former, but I think the vernacular would go for the plural second option.

    We could always use both. 🙂

    Disqus is implimented as a plugin for wordpress. So I double it is very configurable by any FDL maintainer. That is to say Disqus is tit’s own thing which a wordpress site can or not use if it wishes.

    Anyone familiar with Joe Bageant? I only discovered him this week. The article below pretty well predicted our Obama adventure – in ’06:

    (h/t wendyedavis’ Café Babylon site)

    Bageant is great! I’ve been revelling in his archives ever since. Sadly he passed away in ’08, iirc, but his site is being kept going, and it is well worth a visit.

    WordPress has it’s own built in commenting system. That is what I use on my own [freebee] WordPress blog. But it’s even more primitive and useless than disqus.

    One thing site developers should consider about cell phone users is that carriers long ago quit offering “unlimited data” and now charge (ridiculous amounts) for data usage – and a whole lot of us in the 99% can’t afford anywhere near as much data as we’d like/need. Whatever the data limit is, when you hit it, the carrier either cuts off your internet access entirely or “throttles” the speed of your phone.

    And sites with a whole bunch of Javascript-driven, image-laden ads (hint, hint) don’t help matters.

    MUST we have a Load More Comments button at the bottom of the screen after x number of comments when reading comments? How does that help the conversation? To me it’s just one more irritating click. Enough of them and I just go elsewhere, tired of Disqus’ need for clicks – to somewhere where I can read at length without having to feed a click-machine.

    Evenin all. As usual i am LLn. When i was just a pup we blew out many a speakers listening to Yes. Kinda wish i had a sound system like that again.

    Evenin’, homeroid/AKBob. A bit hard for me to remember some new names, but the AK reminds me it’s you. Honestly, I prefer homeroid. Not interested in changing your Disqus display name back to homeroid?

  41. TalkingWarrior
    May 15, 2015 at 3:17 am

    This is the first time I’ve ever used Disqus, but for those activating old dormant Disqus accounts or who are currently using it with a different name from their FDL handle:

    1) Does changing your Disqus display name at the FDL site change your display name across all sites or only at FDL?

    2) Is changing your display name retroactive on previous comments?

  42. TalkingWarrior
    May 15, 2015 at 3:30 am

    Well, I’m done for the night. G’night, all.

    Disgust wont let me change anything. Thinking about wiping disqus out of my puter all together then start again?

  44. TalkingWarrior
    May 15, 2015 at 6:42 am

    Weird. oldhippiejan (now social misfit) was having the same problem. But Disqust let me change my display name from the name I signed up with (dancingrabbit) to my FDL name (TalkingWarrior). However, I had never used Disqust before and created a “throw-away” Yahoo email account in case I didn’t like the Disqust experiment, so – my FDL addy is different from my Disqust(ed) addy.

    Then there are the browser issues. So many variables.

    I hope cmk/Chris addresses this soon in his OE. Because: first ‘pups lost their DIARIES, then their COMMENTING HISTORIES, now their NAMES – what’s next, BIRTHDAYS???

    (Any CTers in the lake?)

  45. TalkingWarrior
    May 15, 2015 at 6:52 am

    @ cmk/Chris

    You might also address HTML coding in your OE. MoonOfAlabama has a good set of examples of the basics (to the right of their comment box) to which you could add a good deal more, I’m sure.

    Good luck!

  46. TalkingWarrior
    May 15, 2015 at 7:57 am

    1) See my first-level comment below addressed to @ cmk/Chris re HTML coding.

    2) The Log in tab below the blue Tools bar near the bottom of the page (on my screen) does not work. I arrived here at the start of last night’s LN to find myself signed out. I tried using the above-described Log in and found myself (angrily) wandering around a rabbit hole that seemed a lot like one of oldhippiejan’s experiences. The log-in denied every “username” tried. I finally got into FDL by going to my Disqus-only email addy, opening up an email from someone replying to a TW comment of mine, clicking on the link to the reply in the email, which took me to the comment thread where there was another log in option – which worked! Because it was the Disqus sign-in. (The hell we go through for FDL.)

    Somewhere in all of this are:

    1) a front-page log-in tab that does not work and needs to be fixed ASAP (as in yesterday), and

    2) a possible work around (sign in via the Disqus Comments log-in?).

    Don’t know what you can do about #1, but I’m damn sure you can explain a possible work-around better than I.

    Let me thank you in advance for undertaking an OE providing so much so very badly information for your fellow FIREDOGS (and ‘pups!).

  47. TalkingWarrior
    May 15, 2015 at 8:40 am

    Sonenstein explained to me that such an option is not possible, because FDL is now using a,”responsive template” (or some such term) that automatically re-sizes FDL code to fit the screen size that it appears on – so there are no discrete FDL desktop and mobile sites to switch between.

    Another topic that Management should explain … but you can take a stab at it in an OE – after you’ve had a chance to research it. (Does anyone know how to contact Sonenstein? Bet he could explain the new formatting system really well, succinctly, and with the correct terminology in a brief email; then it would be a simple cut-and-paste job for you, cmk.).

    Oh, Management, Management, where art thou?
