Olias of Sunhillow

A YES fan has created videos for every track of Jon Anderson's 1976 solo album, "Olias of Sunhillow" using a fair amount of Roger Dean's artwork.

I'm a huge fan of this album. There was a long stretch during my first year of high school when I listened to it every morning before heading off to the hellish world of Thorold Secondary. Although I chose to temporarily dismiss it (along with all my other prog-rock records) when the Sex Pistols entered my life 30 years ago, I've since come back and embraced it fully, realizing there's room in my life for both John and Jon.
