On June 27, 2015, The world learned of the passing of Chris Squire, amazing bassist for the British Prog Rock band "Yes".
He was the only member to appear on each of their 21 studio albums, released from 1969 to 2014.

In celebration of Chris' wonderful accomplishments and contributions to the music industry, Borders Edge Records is presenting this special project album by Starship Trooper in his memory. 

With tracks that spiral around electric bass guitar riffs and with an ear towards characteristic musical idioms of Yes, this is an album for progressive rock listeners.

Released August 2015 as digital album only, available on most fine download stores and streaming music outlets.
