Yes singles part 4 – Fragile – 317

Fragile
Fragile produced just one single – Roundabout

Produced by Robert Nasir, Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier.

Fragile elevated the band further than ever before. Rick Wakeman joined and Roger Dean provided the iconic artwork. The single was Roundabout – perhaps ‘the’ classic song. We also have a 2 pence about ARW’s plans for a huge 50th Anniversary concert…

  • How does the edited version of Roundabout work?
  • What does Rick Wakeman add?
  • No UK single?
