is the seventh Rick Wakeman's Criminal Record studio album by English progressive rock keyboardist Rick Wakeman. Released in 1977, the album is a loosely-based concept album on criminality. Wakeman intended the record to be similar to his first conceptual release, (1973), but it did not turn out as he wished. The Six Wives of Henry VIII [1 ]
The album is entirely instrumental, with the exception being "The Breathalyser" in which
Bill Oddie, one third of the comedy trio The Goodies, provides vocals. The record features Chris Squire and Alan White of Yes fame, on bass guitar and drums respectively. From a musical perspective, the music reflects the title of each track, similar to Six Wives.
