Does anyone know if Les Penning played on Wrekorder Wrondo? The intro and first "verse" seem to be played on a real recorder, after which the melody switches to that synthesised pipe sound that Mike favoured from then on. I haven't found any mention of Les being credited on this track, but it certainly sounds like him.

It's not an easy piece to find... no video on youtube that I can see...

Yes he is on it. Apparently Richard Harvey had difficulty with the part (hard to believe really) so Les was brought in. At least I think that is what I was told by Les himself. I've mislaid the interview tape.

Thank you, Airborne, good to have it confirmed. I wonder why he doesn't play the melody throughout the whole track?
