I bought this album when it first came out. It is a very dark red when you hold it up to the light. Never heard of this before. Still have a the record in question in pristine condition. It was never my favourite Yes album but I often wondered about the deep dark red colour.

Going for the One is the eighth studio album by the English progressive rock band Yes, released on 15 July 1977 by Atlantic Records. The album was recorded in Switzerland after their extended break for each member to release a solo album and their 1976 North American tour. It marks the departure of keyboardist Patrick Moraz and the return of Rick Wakeman, who had left to pursue his solo career after differences surrounding Tales from Topographic Oceans (1973). Formed of five tracks with no unifying theme or concept, the album saw Yes produce more accessible and concise songs with the fifteen-minute "Awaken", recording with new producers and cover designers in the process.
