Note: This was an April Fools' day item!

In the lead up to the new Hergest Ridge and Ommadawn releases, hergestridge2010.com has been launched.

It includes information on the new releases, as well as details of a launch event and a special promotional offer.

We expect a similar site for Ommadawn to follow soon.

Haha! April's fools? Is the whole site a joke or just the Pizza Hut offer?

The pizza is inspired by the COVER of Hergest Ridge - what kind of pizza is that then? Green, with spinach, funghi and meat (dog) perhaps - yummy  :p.

I think at least one of has to try and make this pizza! I might try lamb instead of bootleg the dog though, lots of sheep grazing in that part of the country.

Is the whole thing a joke then?

It had me going for a second until I spotted the Pizza promotion!
The rest of it seems fairly in-keeping with the style of the TB2009 site though - even down to the god-awful repeated image background!!

I quite liked the sound of the model glider flying and being able to sample "the local beers and cheeses"...  :cool: :D

Too bad the real promotional folks at Mercury would probably never think of anything so cool in a month of Sundays!!   ;)

This.. thing... may look slightly less appetizing but is much more faithful to the cover in my opinion.

... that's when I got it was all a joke! The girl is the one that appears on the home page of the no-more-existing Mikeoldfield.com.

I recognized her instantly because I like her VERY much!!!!  :p

This was a good gag well done - but wouldn't a fan meeting on the Ridge on 22 May be a great idea - come on foot or come on horseback!
If there was enough of us we could hum a mass choir version of the driving guitar passage on part 2.  Altogether now...nah nah nah, n'nar nar nah NAAAR
