YES has created a legacy with a collection of Progressive albums that were soon elevated to legendary status. Those include their breakthrough album, Fragile, the home of “Roundabout”. “Roundabout” was edited to the length of a air-ready single and found a grand influx of fans to bring the band to star-level. They followed it up with the exemplary Close To The Edge set, an album so good that even its drummer, Bill Bruford, quit knowing that there could not be a better progression than this album was.

On June 28, Rhino Entertainment will revisit Fragile for a 6-disc Box that will bring a set of new mixes from Steven Wilson, live performance tracks, a collection of rarities, some never before heard, and 2024 mixes that include a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 Surround mix, a Dolby Atmos mix, a brand new remaster of the original album, and a new Stereo and Instrumentals mix. A booklet attends this party with blends of old and new content.

The Deluxe Edition Box will contain 4CDs, 1LP, and 1BD-Audio. There will be DD and Stream offerings as well. A bundle with a signed lithograph will be made available on Rhino Entertainment.

There’s no doubt in my mind that a Close To The Edge Deluxe Box is NEXT!
