As one of the few who helped define the range of Rickenbacker’s iconic 4001, Chris Squire was in his prime with Yes in 1972, and it’s immediately evident on “I’ve Seen All Good People”—one of seven versions on this sprawling 14-disc live set. Squire’s rippling attack and heady, front-loaded tone cuts through the mix with forceful clarity, from the epic “Close to the Edge” to the classic “Roundabout.”
