jon-anderson-olias-of-sunhillowIn 1975, Yes took a break to rest from touring and each member of the band got in the production of a solo album. Jon Anderson locked himself into his personal home garage studio surrounded by synthesizers, drums, Irish harp, guitars and a collection of percussion instruments. In the album, Jon Anderson played more than 20 instruments and wrote, arranged and played all of the music himself.
With his first solo album Jon Anderson created a masterpiece of progressive music. „Olias of Sunhillow“ has been considered one of the most innovative albums from the 70’s for creating a unique fusion of electronic music, ethnic music, classical music, progressive music, and folk. Like a great artist Jon Anderson paints a magic musical virtuosity that  take us into another world.
The album featured an exquisite sleeve with several pages illustrated by artist David Fairbrother Roe.
