  • A shootout winning Triple Plus (A+++) for the second side, Double Plus (A++) on the first, both chock full of Tubey Magic
  • Wild Night and the title track sound amazing - rich and full-bodied with lovely warmth and above all naturalness
  • 4 1/2 stars on Allmusic and featuring some of Stephen Barncard's best engineering
  • Relatively quiet vinyl - this is an album that's getting tough to find in clean condition nowadays
  • "Tupelo Honey is in one sense but another example of the artist making increased use of the album as the unit of communication as opposed to merely the song or the cut. Everything on it is perfectly integrated."

Yes
Close To The Edge

  (Item #: yes__close_1710) 

Our Price: $449.99

  • With a Triple Plus (A+++) shootout winning side two and a superb Double Plus (A++) side one, this copy could not be beat
  • This is a complex recording, with huge organs, light-speed changes, lots of multi-tracking, and what practically amounts to an overload of information
  • As amazing as the sound may be, the good news is that the vinyl is actually fairly quiet, Mint Minus Minus
  • Allmusic 5 Stars: "Close to the Edge comprised just three tracks, the epic "And You and I" and "Siberian Khatru," plus a side-long title track that represented the musical, lyrical, and sonic culmination of all that Yes had worked toward over the past five years."

  • This rare and long out of print title plays Mint Minus Minus, about as quiet as they typically come
  • 5 stars on Allmusic: "...where Time Fades Away was embattled and Tonight's the Night mournful, On the Beach was savage and, ultimately, triumphant."
