CHRIS SQUIRE - YES Bassist To Reissue Deluxe Edition Of Fish Out Of Water In August
June 29, 2007, 11 years ago
First released in November, 1975, Fish Out Of Water is CHRIS SQUIRE's first and only solo venture outside of the sphere of YES. Peaking at #25, the album spent seven weeks in the UK album charts.
This re-mastered deluxe expanded edition released in conjunction with Chris Squire's record label, Stone Ghost, adds an additional DVD disc containing promo videos for the tracks 'Hold Out Your Hand' and 'You By My Side', featuring the London Symphony Orchestra. Also included is an interview with Chris talking about the album and a track-by-track synopsis. Finally, the previously US only version of 'Lucky Seven' (edited by Tom Dowd) has been added to the audio portion of the CD, making the release a welcome addition for any collector of Yes related material.
As founder and the only constant member throughout all of the Yes lineup permutations, bassist Chris Squire has earned his place as one of the UK's most accomplished and flamboyant musicians. Born in Kingsbury, North West London,
Chris gravitated towards playing bass guitar and purchased his first Rickenbacker after persuading his then music store boss to begin importing them from the US, whereupon the young Chris was able to obtain a model at the reduced cost price. Following stints with a number of bands formed with school friends and local musicians (THE SELFS and THE SYN), Chris joined Mabel Greer's TOYSHOP in January 1968 and over the course of that year the first commonly recognised
Yes lineup came into being.
Fish Out Of Water will be available via Castle Music on August 20th.
