Released on 13 September 1972, Close to the Edge is the fifth studio album by progressive rock legends Yes. 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. The album marked a development in the band’s songwriting, with Jon Anderson and Steve Howe writing the 18-minute title track, the band’s longest song at the time. Side two contains And You and I and Siberian Khatru.

Close to the Edge became the band’s greatest commercial success at the time of release. It peaked at No. 4 on the UK Albums Chart and No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in the United States, the highest position Yes has reached on the latter chart.
