Scott McMahan:

A longer and baroquely lavish version [Perpetual Change] appeared when Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman tried to out-solo one another on the Fragile tour. This masterpiece was preserved on the live album Yessongs.


Jeremy Weissenburger:

I was also just told that Yes played Roundabout on the Fragile tour. You know, I really should have seen that one.


Yesman Lee:

Seconds Magazine
Jon Anderson Interview

SECONDS: Then Rick Wakeman from the Strawbs joined the band and you did Fragile, with "Roundabout." How did that record change your lives and how did it change popular music?

ANDERSON: As soon as Rick came into the band, the whole band uplifted itself musically. With Rick, Steve, Bill, and Chris this was a fine band. We needed music that really belonged to it. We did four songs, each about eight, nine minutes and then some intermediate pieces of music. We were trying to sell the artist within the band. We were performing as a group plus there were individual spots. It led to a long show. you could have Steve play a couple of songs on his own and Rick on his own and Bill could do a solo. Then you start to think, "How can we put a show together to keep people interested?" That's when you start having better lighting, more theatre - at the time Bowie was doing a lot of theatre. There was alot of bands trying these things out. Because of the music being longer, surely the stage design is going to be better so the audience doesn't get whacked by the length of the music.
