And I thought it sounded like a strange number for a rodeo show.  :laugh:

But it does sound like an interesting thing.

I read a few years ago Arlene Phillips from "Strictly Come Dancing" had TB1 down as one of her fav albums and from that I think she Choreographed a Ballet with "Hot Gossip" a sort of raunchy "Pans People"... Not sure if theres a tape of it anywhere.

Wow! Hot Gossip writhing about the place to Tubular Bells in it`s entirety.It hardly bears thinking about.God only knows what they would have made of the caveman sequence?They could have got the master of ceremonies to reel off articles of clothing.Whilst the dancers then went about provactively removing such items...Mmmmm!?! "Two slightly distorted bra cups."...If ever a video did come to light,I`d never be able to listen to it in the same way ever again.

This sounds like a fantastic idea and I for one am waiting for it to become available with great interest. Their website shows it will be excellently played. I have always wanted to hear a piano version of some of Ommadawn, the guitar parts would make magnificent solo piano adaptations.
