Rick Wakeman's Criminal Record is an album by Rick Wakeman. Side A (the first three tracks with Squire and White) were recorded in an unusual fashion. Instead of having the rhythm section record their parts first and Wakeman then record his lead keyboard parts over the top, Wakeman recorded his keyboard parts first and then handed the tapes over to Squire and White to lay down whatever parts they wished. Squire and White did so, recording their parts separately too, although in co-operation to some degree. As White relates it, he recorded the drum parts too, then handed the tapes over to Squire, with some minimal subsequent recording by Wakeman. The album was recorded during the sessions for Going For The One.
