    JON ANDERSON: 1000 Hands



    Pre-orders begin October 25th. More info to come (so far I've only seen this on the ARW page.)

    Just thought it might interest some of you to know this is now on its way.

    Interesting that it has the olias symbol in the middle. Could it be that Jon finished something?

    When did the "current Yes members" record music for this? Recently, or has some of this been around since pre-breakup? Not that there would be anything wrong either way, I hope it's good, and it is quite an impressive collection of musicians.

    That's a Who's Who lineup if ever I saw one.

    I don't recall hearing about this. Did this just come out of the blue?

    Jeebus... who didn't play on this?

    Oh, and the graphic designer who typeset Jon's screed should be shot.
    I'm holding out for the Wilson-mixed 5.1 super-duper walletbuster special anniversary extra adjectives edition.

    Someone at that site is a Yes fan (and aging hippie.) They've also got an interview with Patrick Moraz.

    What an all star effort. But one cant help but notice Anderson, Squire, White, Wakeman and Howe on the same CD sleeve...

    i'll wait for the reviews. this could be a stitched together mess with constant Jon verbiage not allowing the music to breathe...

    In the old days when everything had a bunch of movements, track 3 would have been something like

    RAMALAMA

    i.I got a girl
    ii.She's everything to me
    iii.Rama Lama
    iv.Ding Dong
    v.She's mine, all mine

    Howe is Howe on this?

    Over at Yesfans.com, we have collectively decided that ARW won't release an album so hoping this is good.

    This project started around 1990 or 1991. I’m guessing Howe’s parts were recorded many years ago.

    I'll hope for the best. If anyone can do it, Jon can.
