Bottle and Bottega Painting Party. Yes: Fragile

Nancy and I had some friends over last night to play some records.  That was the post-party, but the mail event was a group painting class at Bottle and Bottega in LaGrange.  That's a cool place where you pick what you want to paint, they have all the supplies - and each person brings their own adult beverages.  I finished up a still life of two flowers and had extra time so I flew home and grabbed Fragile by Yes.  And voila!  Here it is!  With apologies to Roger Dean.  And from sources...Fragile is the fourth studio album from the English progressive rock band Yes, released on Atlantic Records.  It is the first to feature keyboardist Rick Wakeman, who replaced Tony Kaye in 1971, and the first to feature cover art by Roger Dean, who would design many of the band's records.  Upon its release in the UK in November 1971, Fragile hit number 7 on the UK Album Chart, which would prove its highest position there.  It later reached number 4 on the US Billboard 200[2] during a stay of 46 weeks. Its release in the United States was held back for two months because of the chart momentum of their previous record, The Yes Album.
