    has anyone else got his Tubular bells on SACD..??

    I bought it a while ago - have't really listened to it that much (maybe twice) - but I played it the other night - was a disc! it made me fall asleep whilst listening to the 2nd track - I'm sure that I heard him repeat the words - 'b*ggered if I know...', but when I played it again (again, I dozed off!) I could hear it!! aargh!! I'm going mad....can anyone confirm that he says these words..? :laugh:

    The SACD is a four channel surround mix of the original (done in 1975 by Phil Newell) and originally released as a Quadrophonic LP that year. I don't think the reworked one (Tubular Bells 2003) is available on SACD (I think it's on DVD-A).

    Hang on, do you mean on Tubular Bells part 2 or on the Sailor's hornpipe bit at the end? I seem to recall that Viv Stanshall's rambling on Sailor's Hornpipe includes the phrase 'B*ggered if I know' several times.

    EDIT:
