Chris Squire Fish Out of Water Yes Bill Bruford boxset
limited boxset edition of Yes founder Chris Squire’s extraordinary 1975 solo album Fish Out Of Water, featuring 2018 stereo and 5.1 mixes by Jakko Jakszyk, a 2018 remaster of the original mix, bonus tracks, and more.
 
Recorded in the late Spring and Summer of 1975 whilst Yes was on hiatus, Fish Out Of Water was a breathtaking work, equal to any Yes album in terms of sheer invention and creativity. The album was essentially a collaboration between Chris Squire and his friend Andrew Pryce Jackman, a gifted arranger who had been a member of The Syn, Squire’s pre-Yes group.
 
The sessions saw typically brilliant contributions from former Yes drummer Bill Bruford, Yes keyboard player Patrick Moraz and Mel Collins (King Crimson) and Jimmy Hastings (Caravan). 
 
Released in November 1975, Fish Out Of Water was a Top 30 chart hit in the UK and made the US Billboard Top 75 album chart, going on to sell around 500,000 copies worldwide.
 
The four bonus tracks include the single edits of Lucky Seven and Silently Falling, and both sides of the 1981 single by Chris Squire and Alan White Run With the Fox and Return of the Fox (both tracks appearing on CD for the first time). 
 
The boxed set includes Jakko Jakszyk’s stunning 5.1 mix of the album, a visual (NTSC/Region Free) DVD featuring the 1975 Fish Out Of Water promo film and a 2006 interview with Chris Squire, a replica 180g LP in gatefold with poster, and two seven inch singles of Lucky Seven b/w Silently Falling and Run With the Fox b/w Return of the Fox (both in picture sleeves). 
 
The boxset also contains an illustrated 36 page booklet with an essay by Sid Smith featuring exclusive interviews with Bill Bruford  Patrick Moraz  Gregg Jackman and Jakko Jakszyk.
 
A masterful tribute to a masterful album.
