|Tubular Bells II was conceived when I left Virgin Records. I made a demo with Tom Newman and I presented it to various record companies. I managed to find a manager in Clive Banks, who used to be the boss of Island Records. He knew everyone globally, and I had every record company boss in my home studio to listen to the demo of Tubular Bells II. Clive looked for offers and the best one came from Rob Dickens at Warner Brothers*. It was a fantastic experience. I had always wanted to work with Trevor Horn as a producer and the day after suggesting this, he arrived at my door. We recorded the album in Los Angeles and I rented a house and installed a portable studio and away we went. It was a lovely album to work on and I enjoyed working with Trevor.|
*I'd prefer to write "Warner Bros", but this is what's in the booklet.
