Close To The Edge (Bonus Tracks)

by Yes
Close To The Edge by Yes
Released: Sep 1972
Label: Rhino/Elektra
Yes extended the success brought on by Fragile with 1972's Close to the Edge, itself a Top 10 record. While the album -- with just three tracks on the original issue -- does not have any singles, it does feature one of the group's all-time best song suites: the 10-minute sunny morning jaunt that starts with "And You and I" and slides into "Cord of Life." Sandwiched halfway into the title cut, "I Get Up, I Get Down" is another of Yes' highlights. This expanded version of the album is remastered and features the single "America," along with alternate takes.
