Atlantic SD-7244 (S), released September 13, 1972. The original has a green & Orange label with an 1841 Broadway Address. Atlantic SD-19133 (S) released in 1980. 1972 was a very busy year for Yes, after busting onto the music charts with their third album (The Yes Album)they recorded & released Fragile & Close To The Edge. Anyone lucky enough to see them during this period, enjoyed a young group cranking out some very fine music. I saw them in St. Louis during the Masterworks Tour & they played a few tunes from this album (What a treat!!)
