    Tubular Bells arranged for Guitar Quartet

    This is just magic!

    Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
    Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

    Cheers Ash. Watchin' now. Very good. And since just guitar it all blends nicely. The original is bit too hodge podge for me with different instruments chucked into a blender.

    Much prefer HR for smoother composition as well.

    Then "O" is just sublime.

    "I" is just magical.

    Both TB and HR were recorded again for orchestra a mere year later after their release in the 70's. Doublin'the profit for Virgin. Hahhaahaaa

    Will pull the trigger and get his autobiography "The Changeling"

      Gilly, You have an interesting take on this, but I go the other direction. While this done really well, I still prefer the original. For me that is a timeless piece of music as is.

        One may enjoy both oysters and snails. It is all a question of taste.

          As a lascivious Sir Lawrence Olivier famously said to a young Tony Curtis 😉

            In the 1993 restored version, from which all subsequent prints, DVDs, etc, are taken, the voice of Larry is actually Anthony Hopkins. If you know, I think you can tell.
            Although the picture elements of this excised scene were more or less intact and could be restored and colour-graded to match the rest, the soundtrack was unrecoverable so Curtis came in to loop his dialogue 30 years later, and Hopkins impersonated the deceased Olivier.
