As others have noted, an excellent live album.  I am generally not a great fan of live albums - but have been won over by the excellent sound and quality of playing on this one.

It was a difficult choice, but I plumped for Tubular Bells Part 2 - this part has never been one of my favourites among Mike's work - but it sounds great here.

I'm not positive, but I think the man doing that great rhythm playing was a fella who also worked with Al Stewart......Tim "something". I think that climactic dual guitar part is one of the best I ever heard in my life. The video version of that guitar solo on the Gibson SG is quite different from the LP I got in 1979( an included free LP with "Airborne/Platinum") which is my fav. version.

You are thinking of Tim Renwick. And yes Tim did play with Al Stewart. But Tim didn't tour with Mike during this tour. The guitarists helping Mike on the Exposed live tour was Phil Beer (the one who also did some vocals on Guilty) and the other one who did a great solo during the concert is Nico Ramsden.
