|Welcome to the site Abs (are they made of steel?) You are the first person besides me who I have seen say that it was good music to excercise to. I plan to follow in Galadriels footsteps, and lose weight with inspiration from Mike.|
Welcome to TubularBoard Abs, or should that be Tubular Slimming World??? Mike Oldfield's new slimming aid Light + Shade. Well it's working for me . I volunteered to deliver Slimming World leaflets to about 200 houses in my area, well it's excersise, Had L&S playing on my CD Walkman as I was doing this .

I know Mike has ripped out all his old recording equipment and replaced it with a computer, trouble is it sounds exactly like an album made on a PC in somebody’s bedroom.
I beg to differ. Bedroom music most often reeks of enthusiasm, honest effort, creativity, too. People who do music on their bedroom often have great ideas boiling inside their heads, and are aching to make it come true in any way possible - even if it means using an old Casio keyboard.
I agree Sir M. The 1971 Demos of Tubular Bells could be classed as flat music, not 'cause it's dull or boring, but as it was made in Mike's home at the time, a flat in Tottenham, north London using the most basic of recording equipment, TB Demos to me sound fresh and exciting, so full of raw energy and vibrancy . BTW Does anyone know the adress of Mike's old flat in Tottenham , just out of interest.

It finally happened, I'm slightly mad , just very slightly mad
If you feel a little glum to Hergest Ridge you should come.
