Here is the isolated bass version of my recent cover of Going For The One. Now you can hear the mighty Ranney in all its glory! Chris played it originally on his Rickenbacker 8-string prototype, he would later perform it live (in later tours) with his own Ranney.

To The Moment
To The Moment – one of the beautiful songs rescued by Oliver Wakeman from the period before “Fly From Here”. Chris used the Ranney 8-String bass and I am so fortunate to be able to play it on the almost very same bass!
