[News] YES to release Super Deluxe Edition of 1971 album “Fragile” in June 2024

YES are to release their classic 1971 album “Fragile” as a Super Deluxe Edition on four CDs, one LP, and a Blu-ray disc through Rhino Records on June 24, 2024.

The extensive reissue, which follows the Super Deluxe Edition release of “The Yes Album” last November, features a newly remastered version of the original album on both CD and vinyl, plus rare and unreleased recordings. A Blu-ray disc completes the collection, with new mixes from Steven Wilson including the album in Dolby Atmos and 5.1 Mix DTS-HD MA.

Fragile was the first YES album to feature Rick Wakeman, who joined the band from the Strawbs mid-way through 1971 to replace original keyboard player Tony Kaye. The album featured four band tracks, including the perennial live favourites “Heart Of The Sunrise” and “Roundabout,” plus a piece from each of the individual members. It was also the first Yes album to feature artwork by Roger Dean.

Among the rarities are previously unreleased live versions of “Long Distance Runaround/The Fish (Schindleria Praematurus),” “Perpetual Change” and “Yours Is No Disgrace,” recorded at New York’s Academy Of Music in February 1972.
