A Kosmik Journey Through Time (part one)

1964 - 1985

"Close To The Edge" by Yes (1972)
Yes  "Close To The Edge"  1972 (UK)
As the kosmik time machine travels through fifty years of heavy progressive psychedelic and underground rock, we pause in the year 1972 for a Europrog classic. Yes is perhaps the most successful and globally popular band from the golden age of progressive rock, a supergroup of superambitious supermusicians. Although their first 1972 release Fragile seems to get more attention (at least in America, where it was there commercial breakthrough), the album they released later that year is even better. Consisting of just three tracks, including the sidelong titular number, Close To The Edge is the group's highwater mark -- their next release was the overdone double album Tales From Topographic Oceans, then after that they did a polarizing jazz album, then settled into a long slow decline of revolving band members.
