For Voyager, I had made a few trips to Galacia in Northern Spain and had got friendly with some local musicians who were in a band called Luar na Lubre. They were astonishingly good. They featured a bagpipe player called Benito Romero. I invited them to act as my support band on a later tour. The Song of the Sun was on one of Luar na Lubre's albums and it was such a lovely Celtic song, and I was writing a Celtic album, that I thought I'd record a version of it. Davy Spillane, also played on the album, and he was a great uillean* pipes player.

*again, as spelt in the booklet. Also those mad commas in the last sentence are there too.
