More information: For his sixth solo release, recorded right after he rejoined Yes in 1977 for the 'Going For The One' album, Rick turned to the transgressive subjects of crime, punishment and villainy. And he got his just desserts - Criminal Record hit the charts in both the U.K. and U.S. where it went top 30. Both Alan White and Chris Squire play on the record, which features (on "Judas Iscariot") the same church organ from St. Martin's church in Vevey, Switzerland used on 'Going For The One' to great effect. Oddly, this standout record from Wakeman's catalog has only been available domestically on a limited-edition, long out-of-print CD.
