    Yes, that was a fun 'I hear you now'!
    (It made my head feel a bit like it was eating pebbles, but that's not a bad thing.)

    Wow, that's pretty great ! Funny, but I just recently made a Jon compilation album of Olias + Song of Seven, and I think these are the only 2 songs from SOS I included ("Song of Seven" and "Hear It"). Never really liked the title track much, but rocking up the tempo just about elevates it from Mediocre to "essential listening". I'm so unfamiliar with the Jon/Vangelis stuff, had to
    look up "One More Time" track (it's from the debut Jon/Vangelis album Short Stories). Here's another one that YouTube found for me :




    Wonderful version of I Hear You Now, the fragile Short Stories is one of my favourite solo-projects by Jon. From the Munich-show I especially dig the rhythmically Take Your Time, sounds like an Olias-outtake.

    That live album will eventually make its way to sale. It's likely the show from KBFH which was recorded in Asbury Park, NJ. The quality will be better than past unofficial releases of this show.

    That was a different band, the one for Animation and subsequent US tour. I have an unofficial CD release of that.
    UK Song of Seven Tour had John Giblin, Ronnie Leahy, Morris Pert, Dick Morrisey, maybe Clemson. I can remember jumping out of my seat when they did The Prophet!

    The Sheffield concert was released on CD a few years ago, but it's long since been out of print.
