Jon Anderson - Animation

Jon Anderson began his career with British pop combo the Warriors. From here he was briefly a solo artist and went under the name Hans Christian Anderson. Shortly after meeting Chris Squire in 1968 he formed Yes. Since that time Jon has become, save for a short period in the early eighties when he left the band to resume a solo career best known as the front man for this legendary progressive rock band. Jon has also worked extensively with other musicians over the years and has enjoyed commercial success with artists such as Vangelis and Kitaro.

During the short period away from Yes in the early eighties Jon Anderson recorded a number of albums including Animation in 1982.

Animation was critically well received was released shortly before Jon re joined Yes for the hugely successful 90125 album and in fact is perfectly in tune with the modern feeling that pervades both releases. This re-issue contains two bonus tracks: Spider, which was the B-side of the original Surrender single; and the never-before-released track, The Spell, which was an outtake from the Animation recording sessions.

The album was produced by legendary British producer Tony Visconti and features performances from many fine musicians including JackBruce, Clem Clempson, Ian Wallace, Simon Phillips and David Sancious amongst others.

The album has long been considered an important album by the Jon Anderson fan base with many fans campaigning for its reissue on CD.
