Bill's piece is by far the shortest, but also the most complex, effectively playing the entire band with his drum kit.
 
The song's name tells you what Bill Bruford thought of the band's manager at the time, who received ...

Thanks for doing this one. We're getting pretty close to having full band versions for every song on Fragile. At this point, I think only "Cans and Brahms" hasn't been charted.

What about We Have Heaven and Mood for a Day? Are they out there?

I'm working on 'We Have Heaven'. Mood for a Day is out there, I think, but without Pro Guitar. I might do that eventually, but only if I can be certain it is accurate. Steve Howe is hardly a conventional guitarist, after all!

Thanks! I love all the Bruford available on this site. I was surprised by all the early Yes and King Crimson available.
