Close To The Edge (CD, Album, RE). Selfish Records.
Close to the Edge is the fifth studio album by English progressive rock band Yes, released on 13 September 1972 by Atlantic Records. It is their last album of the 1970s to feature original drummer Bill Bruford before he left to join King Crimson. After touring their previous album, Fragile, the group assembled at Advision Studios in London to record a follow-up, ideas for which had been put down since February 1972.
Close to the Edge would make the Top Five on both sides of the Atlantic, dispatch Yes on the longest tour of their career so far and, if hindsight be the guide, launch the band on a downward swing that only disintegration, rebuilding, and a savage change of direction would cure. The latter, however, was still to come. In 1972, Close to the Edge was a flawless masterpiece.

This song was written by Yes lead singer Jon Anderson and guitarist Steve Howe. if you ever come across a tab/blotter of acid that is shaded like the album cover or your told that it is a tab taken from close to the edge, down by the corner of the sheet that will definitly "take away the plain in which you move and choose the course your ruling". the tab will make you go waaaaay up. at points then get down at others, thats the ways lsd trips pan out. if you were to chart how high you were on a graph it would go up and down through out the course of the trip. hence the lines "i get up, i get down"
