Hillage and Wyatt each appear on only one track of 'Bananamour' (Wyatt
appears much more on Ayers' 3 previous solo albums, 'Joy Of A
Toy', 'Whatevershebringswesing', 'Shooting at the Moon', all of which I
like much more than 'Bananamour', but not as much as the BBC session where
the 7-piece horn-loaded version of the Soft Machine backs Kevin for an
amazing version of "Why Are We Sleeping").

And while we're on the subject, Don Falcone informs me that Simon House
*also* played on one of the live Tubular Bells performances (is this true?
any of the Oldfield-philes here know which one?), so that would be the
shortest Oldfield link yet!
