In this episode I am joined by musician Rand Kelly to discuss the recently passed Chris Squire, an amazing bass player and major force behind the progressive rock band Yes. Ultimately we ended up talking about every Yes album ever (though without losing sight of Squire's contributions to each one) and the discussion went on for so long that I had to split the episode into two parts. In part 1 we go from Yes' self-titled debut, up to Relayer, and top it off with Chris Squire's solo album Fish Out of Water. Also included is more wonderful music by Squire fan John Demarkis, and a tribute statement from The Musika Family.
