      Squire, Moraz, Bruford under the largest thatched roof in England. Could easily be a great Yes record with added A+H.
      though sonically interesting to have no guitar apart from bass.

        It almost feels like this was the only album Squire needed to make- it is that good!

          Out of all the solo albums by members (and former members and future members) of Yes, I have a Top 3:

          FOOW
          Olias
          6 Wives


          There are several other I like a great deal, but these three are on a 100% level.

            FOOW is as good as any Yes album. A masterpiece. Squire's voice could carry an album. It is an album I still listen to today.

              Chris does play 12-string guitar on two tracks sez wikipedia, but it's obviously not a guitar-centric album.

                It is one of my favorite albums of all time. Totally unique and strange in a beautiful way. Shows what a gigantic unique creative force Chris was and that magic he contributed to Yes. My daughter used to say it was her favorite Yes album. I have zero problem with the fact there is no Anderson,Howe, Wakeman, and almost zero guitar. Chris, Andrew, Bill, and Pat, had some serious mojo.

                  Recently got the box set and listened to it on vinyl for the very first time. A wonderful album. I wish Chris, Bill and Patrick made another album together.

                    I hadn't played it for a really long time on vinyl and when it came out on CD I grabbed it eagerly, only to find that I don't actually like it that much.

                      My brother who isn't a huge YESfan found a second hand copy on CD in an op-shoppe recently. Was overjoyed to hear it again. Has got a wide reach.
                      Lucky7 is just so cool and groovy! 😁

                        Brilliant album. By far the best album of the 5 solo albums released in 1975. I would put it ahead of a handful of Yes albums as well. I might even be persuaded to say it's the best album out there with the Squire/Bruford rhythm section. There seems to be a much more natural flow to their work together on this album, more relaxed also, than on the Yes albums they did.

                        Last but not least what makes this album so good is the orchestration by Andrew Price Hackman.

                          Not sure how many Yes albums I would put it in front of. Its missing a strong element of Yes. But if you mean album for album, stand alone maybe. I recommend this album alot to friends, referencing Yes. But I know now to tell them what to expect and differentiate. Seems to work .

                              I can't say it any better than that.
