I am always trying to promote Mike's music as it always amazes me he is still not very well known, or if people have heard of him, it's usually Tubular Bells or Moonlight Shadow, which is great, but as we all know, Mike has a lot more to offer than that. So, I have been watching reaction video's on YouTube, which often gives people the chance to hear music they would not normally listen to. One of the better ones being Wings of Pegasus, this is a guitarist called Fil, who gives really good unbiased reactions of mainly guitar players, but also bands and singers, I have been asking him for a while to feature Mike, and he has now done so, I deliberately wanted to choose a different track, and one that focuses on Mike playing guitar the whole was through, so I choose Punkaddidle, there are many great Mike moments to choose from, but I thought I would start with that one, you can check out Fil's great reaction below, also read some of the comments, some people listening to Mike for the first time.

It's a very good video, and - rarely for me - I prefer this version to the studio one. I wonder if it's commercially available. Thinking about it, the facetious title doesn't really do justice to the mood or complexity of the music. How about "Steinmetz", to tie together the two current popular threads on this forum?  :D

I also prefer this version to the album version. It is available on the official DVD, Live at Montreux 1981.

Not something playable in the car, then. Oh well.

The truth is that I have played this video several times! I think I prefer this version too.

The analysis video is very good. It is nice that Fil emphasizes that Mike has a lot more to offer. The choice of "Punkadiddle" was one of the best possible, qjamesfloyd. Keep promoting Mike's music, that's very kind of you!
(Also, as I saw, Fil has already analyzed many of my favorite videos haha)

I always promote Mike's work, I am going to suggest another video for Fil to react too soon, I am still looking for the best one to suggest.
