Wait a minute! It's only money. Days of the garden. Days in the sun. Warm in my secret. Lost in your eyes. Love, sweet as water. Love, sweet as wine. Love, in the moonlight. Sing with your heart. Tell me there's a muse and you know what. Is it love, is it love, Is it love that I think I'm after?
Is the moment so expressive in my heart To believe I could be with you? Treasure this, treasure this. Is it everything you hoped it would be? In your soul, in a job, at the firelight, Could be life in a heart of stone. Is it love, is this love, Is this love that I think I'm feeling? Hold me in your arms, lie by my side, Let me be inside of you. Let me go, Is It Love - Jon And Vangelis* - Page Of Life me fly, let me love you. Somehow I must believe, you need me too, You dream me too summer love.
Cause I will be unchained When true love surrounds me. I will be unchained When true love I see in your eyes. Yes, I will be unchained When true love I see in your eyes. Tell me I'm a Is It Love - Jon And Vangelis* - Page Of LifeI would know how to believe it. It's a game of give and take. Call it love, give and take Call it love, give and take Is it love that I think I'm after? It's the world that inspires my every move, A world so much to do with you. Tell me now, I'm alive.
So alive that I need to show it. Gather round me, come to me, the firelight. Come to me, wait by my side. I will be unchained When true love surrounds me. Anyone could light a candle, But not the way that you do. Anyone They All Laughed - The Spinto Band - Moonwink light a candle. Just like a flower in the rain, You are unique, the same.
Each step you take, Each dream you realize, Will open your heart, your life. Anyone can light a candle, But not the way that you do. For if we look too close, Pure magic we would be. Pure magic we would see. Allmusic reviewer Jonathan Widran describes the songs on Page of Life as "amazing showcases" for Anderson's singing and Vangelis' instrumentation; the lyrics are described as "clever social commentary".
The Kitchener-Waterloo Record describes the album as "a thoroughly pleasant album", with the title track featuring "overblown lyrics but a gorgeous vocal and instrumental performance". The Record also praises Vangelis' guitar sound on the fifth track, "Little Guitar". The alternate US version was released inand was not approved by Vangelis .
This version is different from Is It Love - Jon And Vangelis* - Page Of Life original release:. It contains the same tracks as the original album with an additional track, "Sing with Your Eyes".
With the two friends priding themselves on their intuitive, spontaneous working style on previous projects, things must have started out that way here as well, but after the initial sessions Vangelis may have lost interest, instead focusing on changing studios plus record companies. So it took some time to get a Vangelis-approved album on the market, getting in some session-musicians for additional percussion and Jon Anderson in charge for the excellent 'Is It Love' which, rumor has it, is actually an uncredited ABWH track.
For some unfathomable reason, they left out material recorded as far back asof which only 'Sing With Your Eyes' surfaced on the CD-single released alongside the album. The end product sounds OK, but not really all that spontaneous, being straightforward pop-music with fairly standard sounds.
The version of the Direct-system used for the identically named Vangelis album was most probably used on this album as well, because they sound pretty similar. They also share the song-like concept, and here Vangelis again produces some strong melodies, like 'Genevieve' and 'Shine For Me'. The latter melody was also the basis for an extended instrumental piece at the end of the 'Francesco' movie. The indefatigable Jon Anderson also doing the Waterfall (Pegasus Remix) - Various - Tribaldome 2 - The Second Gathering 'Union' project around this time, another torture for the many participants is in good enough form again here, although his choice of overdubs sounds a bit jaded at times.
But he would redeem himself somewhat on the release of the album, especially on 'Shine For Me'which has a much more natural vocal sound than its earlier incarnation, really making a world of difference. The status of that later release on some New Age label is a bit cloudy, apparently it got Vangelis quite angry, not having given his consent, and it was withdrawn from the market after a while.

Feb 28, · Sing With Your Eyes" is recorded with the care it deserved Vangelis combined the first and second releases and with only one exception I missed on this album was "Change We Must " which was on the second release of "Page of Life" which had some remixes by Jon Anderson of the original tracks,mostly vocal, but this was a true Vangelis project and 4/5(19).
The lyrics are superb and Vangelis' music seem to descend straight from heaven. The production is pristine, as usual. Although the music is not very adventurous or demanding, it will send constant shivers down your musical spine - some of these tunes are so achingly beautiful they're almost mystical, cf. "Page of Life" and "Garden of Senses"/5(3).
The fourth and the last album by Jon and Vangelis "Page of life" is the most confusing one in term of release version. The first (I would say the original) version was released in and it contains 12 tracks, of which one "Wisdom Chain" is released as a single.3/5.
Jon And Vangelis Page Of Life Is It Love Is it love, is it love, Is it love that I think I'm after? Is the moment so expressive in my heart To believe I could be with you? Treasure this, treasure this. Is it everything you hoped it would be? In your soul, in a job, at the firelight, Could be life in a heart of stone. Is it love, is it love.

Feb 28, · Page of Life was released by Arista Records and was the last of the Jon & Vangelis albums. Recorded in Athens and Rome, the album was wonderful collection of songs and instrumental work, blending perfectly the instrumental genius of Vangelis and the lyrical and vocal majesty of Jon.4/5(19).
