---------

Jon Anderson is the enigmatic lead singer and founding member of Yes. He is also a composer, artist, writer, dreamer, lyricist, poet and musician, with a career spanning more than fifty years. Many books have been written about Yes, but until now none have covered Jon's early years in his first band, The Warriors, in any sort of detail. This group played a key role in developing Jon's Anderson’s vocal range, work ethic and determination to succeed, as well as giving him valuable experience in the music business, to be of invaluable help as his career blossomed.

David Watkinson takes us on a journey from the Lancashire beat music scene in the early 1960s to the vibrancy of London later in the decade. In the short time The Warriors existed - from 1963 to 1967 - they released a single, appeared on TV and in a movie and spent a year following in the Beatles footsteps as a working group in Germany.

As well as providing a complete history of The Warriors, this book also follows Jon's subsequent career in London, via appearances with Gun and his brief solo career as Hans Christian. He finally met Chris Squire and found a home in Mabel Greer's Toyshop, as that group gradually morphed into Yes during the summer of 1968. The book includes new interviews with Jon and many members of The Warriors, who were in the band through its various line-up changes, most for the very first time. It also features a newly-researched family tree, never before seen photographs, both of the Warriors and the first line up of Yes, plus many items of memorabilia and an exclusive look into the band’s diaries. It closes with a comprehensive discography and a collectables section.

Tony und Jon waren damals große Fans der Everly Brothers, das hört man:







Beide sehen sich, abgesehen vom Haarschnitt auch sehr ähnlich.

Ich bin mir nicht sicher. Die EPs in orange und schwarz kamen Anfang vergangener Woche und sind für den günstigen Preis edle Teile.
Klingt oft ziemlich verrauscht, aber ist trotzdem gut hörbar. Die Songs klingen nach den Beatles und Jon Anderson ist nur schwer herauszuhören. Ich freue mich, dass sich da ein Fan die Mühe gemacht hat, das zusammenszustellen und bin auf das Buch gespannt:

This rare and exciting material came from various lofts and trunks around the world. Hidden away for more than fifty years, the condition of some of the material was very poor - having jumps, scratches, muffled and even stopping completely. In my attempt to bring these recording to life again, I made the decision on a few tracks not to over-produce them, leaving in the crackles and blemishes. With others however I was surprised at how well and clear they came out. The band sounds very accomplished; you can hear just how well practised they were. The Warriors were among the best beat group acts at the time.



Songs:
1. Too Much
2. Can't live it down
3. Summer Girl
4. The Dolls House is Empty
5. Run To me
6. She's Gone (Instrumental)
7. She's Gone
