Yes - Close To The Edge

1/2 speed mastered
Yes, the definitive force in classic and prog rock music released this masterwork in 1972. Way ahead of its time in message, packaging, sound and musicianship, Friday Music couldn't think of a nicer way to start off their new series of Yes on 180-gram vinyl. Close To The Edge includes the 18-plus-minute title track, "And You And I" and "Siberian Khatru," which of course feature the masterful talents of Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, Rick Wakeman, Steve Howe and Bill Bruford. Half-speed mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Studios with Joe Reagoso and Ron McMaster.

Close to the Edge: The Solid Time of Change/Total Mass Retain/I Get Up/Get Down/Seasons of Man

It’s a shame. The music here is exceptional, but the quality of the vinyl is quite disappointing . Tons of crackle and pops...even after multiple careful and thorough cleanings. It cheeses me off!

Perhaps I got a poor copy, but this record is way too bright. The synthesizers and especially the guitar are almost ear bleedingly bright. Vinyl quality is ok, but not dead silent. I had high hopes for this series of Yes reissues because the originals are so dismal. Sad to say the best sounding Yes albums I have found are Japanese cds. I have a few other Friday Music lps, and they were pretty good.

Not bad at all....

Thus far, very favorably impressed with these Yes reissues, Probably got a cleaner copy of the first two (the Yes Album & Fragile), but across the board the bass is outstanding. Never did understand their lyrics....

Fresh sounding

A crisp sounding version of this album that sounds closer to Fragile (Analogue Production version for reference) than any other version of this album I've heard (I have not heard the original pressing though). The MOFI LP sounds alomost like a tape copy of this one... Vinyl quality is OK, not the total quiet variety Speakers Corner spoils us with.
