    "We all gotta climb mountains!" - Jon Anderson 2003

    Sorry Jon. I gave in the seventies.

      Could be some cool things that come from that. My pessimistic side remembers that Jon is not always a finisher… great at starting things though. But if people are financing his projects directly on a reliable basis, it could be a different story.

      If anyone here signs up, do report on what goes on. I am staying out for now. My (modest) patreon budget is already going to a few other people.

        I think it's a great idea for Jon to release tons of stuff from the vault

          Agreed, but outside of the basic package, my...that's a lot of money !

            My reaction too. I fell for his 4th dimensional faerie dust before & learned my lesson.
            The Lost Tapes box set of 8 CDs with 11 blank spaces mocks me every time I look at the Yes Solos corner of my physical media pile.
            I would be a potential customer for any completed song, project, or whatever, in physical or digital format, that Jon might offer for sale, but he’ll get nothing on spec from me.

              Yeah, I love Jon but I'm wary of things like this given his notorious tendency to get distracted and abandon projects. I'll keep an eye on what he's posting and how often (previews are visible if you scroll down), and might subscribe if enough of it takes my interest, but it's too early for that right now.

                  I believe that was previously released on YouTube a few years back...?

                      I have too many songs about penguins already…

                        I regret not picking these up when they were on iTunes years ago, but have long since disappeared, presumably into licensing hell, never to be heard from again…

                            Ah okay.

                            I was thinking, in his page bio/statement/whatever he talks about wanting to create directly for fans, but what about the next Anderson/Stolt record? I would imagine that's already been commissioned by InsideOut because the first one was relatively well-received, so at least someone should get on the ball about that, unless Roine wants to do in-person sessions with the musicians involved (not Jon, obviously). But wow, paying him $1200 a year for content? Like, how many superfans would actually do that, I wonder?

                              Yep, even if ARW or Yes went this route, I would still only sign up for the basic package. I get that part of the appeal is helping out a musical hero, but still, for $120 I can buy a concert ticket, t-shirt, and the digital download.
