BR/All Region. This Blu-ray edition features stunning 5. 1 Surround Sound and new stereo mixes of the album by Jakko Jakszyk. The disc also includes the bonus features of the Fish Out Of Water promotional film (featuring the songs 'Hold Out Your Hand' and 'You By My Side'), along with a 2006 audio commentary by Chris Squire. Finally, the set also contains a 36-page book with an essay by Sid Smith featuring exclusive interviews with Bill Bruford, Patrick Moraz, Gregg Jackman and Jakko Jakszyk. This Esoteric Recordings Blu ray edition is a fitting tribute to the artistry of Chris and his collaborator, Andrew Pryce Jackman. Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a new Blu ray edition of Yes founder Chris Squire's legendary 1975 solo album Fish Out Of Water. Recorded in the late Spring and Summer of 1975 whilst Yes was on hiatus as members recorded their respective solo albums, Fish Out Of Water was a breath-taking work, and equal in standard 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 contributions from former Yes drummer Bill Bruford, Yes keyboard player Patrick Moraz and noted musicians Mel Collins and Jimmy Hastings. 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 nearly 500,000 copies worldwide.

The original album mix sounds fantastic in hi-res. Great clarity, I love it. The videos are a great look back, though I'm led to wonder what happened to the rest of it, since these are clearly excerpts from a longer presentation. And the commentary walkthrough with Squire is priceless. I think these things alone are nearly worth the price of admission.
The remix is garbage. Literally every instrument sounds wrong. And I don't mean "I've been listening to this for thirty years and this sounds different". I mean every instrument has been made to sound worse in some way. The keys have a hollow sound; the snare is brittle; I'm not going to list everything but it sounds very bad to my ears. Switching back to the original mix was like a breath of fresh air.
As for the 5.1 mix, I hear no effort to leverage the rear channels or bring the music into the room in any perceivable way. If anything it just sounds quieter and more lifeless.
If you think it sounds great, I'm jealous. You have one more source of joy in your life than I do. And I was really looking forward to this one.
Finally a reasonably priced HD surround recording! The 5.1 surround mix brings out instrumentation and vocal harmonies that can get a bit lost in the original stereo version. The hi-res original mix sounds great and does provide a great punch but it benefits from a bit more compression and high frequency push. If you really crank up the surround mix you get a similar impact. Most of Squire's bass is in the center channel so it helps to have a large center channel speaker.
