Mastered from the original Atlantic Records tapes by Joe Reagoso

After several whirlwind tours to celebrate their amazing successful run with albums such as Close to the Edge and Tales From Topographic Oceans, the legendary Yes took some time off to record several solo projects and soon got back to the studio and worked on the amazing 1977 prog-rock masterwork Going for the One.

With an ever interesting line-up of world class musicianship, this highly regarded dream team for Going for the One consisted of Jon Anderson (vocals), Chris Squire (bass/vocals), Steve Howe (guitars/vocals), Alan White on drums and the celebrated return of keyboardist Rick Wakeman, Going for the One truly stands as absolutely one of the most intriguing albums of their mega successful career.

Often considered one of the finest recordings in their amazing catalog, Yes fans continue to praise Going for the One as a truly inspiring masterwork. This important piece of music consists of five amazing Yes workouts such as the definitive side one opener "Going for the One," the fan favorite "Turn Of The Century," and of course the international smash hit "Wonderous Stories."

Yes enthusiasts were superlatively rewarded with even more progressive rock favorites with the brilliant Chris Squire composition "Parallels," and the stunning Jon Anderson and Steve Howe collaboration "Awaken," which truly made Going for the One one of the finest albums of classic rock era.

Friday Music is honored to celebrate this amazing anniversary edition by issuing it for the first time on premium high grade translucent blue audiophile vinyl. This exceptional work is now mastered impeccably from the original Atlantic Records tapes by Joe Reagoso (Close To The Edge, Drama, Time and a Word, 90125, Relayer).

To celebrate the anniversary of this amazing album, this limited edition masterpiece is housed in the super rare and beautiful tri-fold album cover and includes the original stunning artwork by Hipgnosis.

Sounds tinny. No punch. Two different copies had a flaw on side b track 1 in the exact same spot - stylus jumps. Sad. Returned for refund.

Great record, not so great sonics

Going for the One is a great record to be sure, but this pressing doesn't do justice to the material. Purchased this pressing as a gift to replace an old, second hand copy, but as it turned out, the $3.00 record sounds better than the $30.00 one. This pressing sounds compressed, crowded, and trebly which makes it a bit of a chore to listen to. The samples on iTunes sound better. That's not what I expect from a $30.00, 'Audiophile' vinyl offering. The reproduced artwork likewise looks more like a poor color copy in contest with the original. Really wanted to love this record but find myself still waiting for a better pressing. 5 stars to the material, 2 stars to this release. (Sigh)
