Yes – Close To The Edge at 50 on the cover of the new issue of Prog, on sale now!


We’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of Yes’ classic fifth studio album near the edge on the cover of issue 128 of Program Magazine, which is on sale now.

We have brand new interviews with Steve Howe, Rick Wakeman, Bill Bruford and Jon Anderson as they reminisce about how they created their very first album with a full epic. There are rarely photos from the studio while the band is recording near the edge and what exactly happened when Bill Bruford decided to leave the band!

There are also four free Roger Dean ‘Postcards From The Edge’ with this issue and a Karisma Records 20-track sampler featuring musical form Wobbler, Airbag, Arabs In Aspic, Meer, Bjorn Riis and more.
