Product description

Product Description

Special two disc (CD + All Region Blu-Ray) pressing. Digitally remastered edition of the British Prog band's 1972 masterpiece. The classic album has been mixed for 5.1 Surround Sound from the original studio masters by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) and is fully approved by Yes. CD features a completely new stereo album mix by Steven Wilson. The CD also features a new mix of 'America' and an early mix/assembly of Close To The Edge. The Blu-Ray features the original album mix and American in a DTS-HD Master Audio flat transfers from the original master tape source. (24bit/192khz). Blu-Ray exclusively features instrumental versions of all new mixes in DTS-HD Master Audio stereo (24bit/96khz). Blu-Ray also exclusively features a needle-drop of an original UK vinyl A1/B1 pressing transferred in 24bit/96khz audio. Numerous audio extras appear in high-resolution stereo including single edits and studio run-throughs of album tracks. Original artwork by Roger Dean who has also overseen the artwork for this new edition. Presented as a mini vinyl replica gatefold card sleeve with booklet containing new sleeve notes, rare photos and archive material.

What's it all about? "A seasoned witch could call you from the depths of your disgrace / And rearrange your liver to the solid mental grace." Actually, it really doesn't matter. Later Yes would fragment, lose focus, but here is Yes functioning for once in the band's tortuous career as an organic unit, and individual elements--such as Jon Anderson's trippy lyrics--are less important than the whole. Even Rick Wakeman's Rachmaninov-for-Hammond-organ excesses work in context, compensated for by Steve Howe's amazingly fluid guitar (equal parts Charlie Christian and Chet Atkins), in turn counterbalanced by Chris Squire's behemoth Rickenbacker bass and Bill Bruford's jazzy drumming. This is rock music informed by the improvisatory spirit of Miles Davis, allied with the grandiose pretensions of the classics: love it or hate it, Close To The Edge is the definitive prog album. --Mark Walker --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
