    Jon Andersons Animation Remastered & Expanded Edition Released April 30, 2021

    NEW EXPANDED RELEASE OF THIS CLASSIC SOLO ALBUM BY JON ANDERSON FROM 1982
    WITH ONE BONUS TRACK
    FEATURING GUEST MUSICIANS SIMON PHILLIPS, CLEM CLEMPSON, DAVID SANCIOUS, CHRIS RAINBOW, JACK BRUCE & DAVE LAWSON
    REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL POLYDOR MASTER TAPES
    FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK AND NOTES

    Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a new remastered and expanded edition of the 1982 solo album by Jon Anderson, Animation.

    The album was recorded throughout 1981 during Jons first hiatus from YES, with whom he had become an internationally known vocalist and songwriter and followed on from his acclaimed albums Olias of Sunhillow and Song of Seven. Working with co-producer Neil Kernon and a host of talented musicians such as DAVID SANCIOUS, CLEM CLEMPSON, SIMON PHILLIPS, STEFANO CERRI, CHRIS RAINBOW and JACK BRUCE and DAVE LAWSON, Anderson created an album that absorbed the latest electronic instrument technology whilst retaining an ambitious and progressive edge.

    Animation was a UK top fifty hit upon its release by Polydor Records in June 1982 and spawned two UK singles, of which the non-album track Spider acted, strangely, as a B-side to both releases.

    Animation has since become a favorite album among aficionados of Jon Andersons work. This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the original Polydor Records master tapes and is expanded to include the single B-side track Spider and the rare demo The Spell. The original album artwork is restored in a digipak. The booklet also features a new essay with an exclusive interview with Jon Anderson.

    Animation came at a point in my life when I felt very creative and adventurous musically and the birth of my third child Jade was the key...watching her arrive in this world was truly magical...and I sing about her eyes slowly opening as I was captured by an Angel in disguise as I sang it....

    Surrender remains a wonderful way of creating Peace on Earth... All in Matter of Timeand all these songs relate to my love of life and hope for our future on this amazing planet Earth....

    The songs seem timeless to me...and sound very fresh.

    love and light - Jon Anderson

    FINALLY!

    I think I might actually have a digital copy somewhere of that Voiceprint disaster that was "remastered" from a well-worn LP and with a ball of dust riding behind the stylus during the process.
