BBC TV 2nd House performance
Oldfield and many of the musicians who had taken part in the Queen Elizabeth Hall concert performed Part One again later in the year for the BBC arts programme 2nd House, but this time as a pre-recorded performance in a studio setting without an audience. The performance was recorded on 30 November 1973 and transmitted on 5 January 1974 on BBC2.[58] The arrangement included a new part for oboe, played by Soft Machine's Karl Jenkins, and the musicians were accompanied by images of tubular steel sculptures and sequences from the film Reflections, both created by artist William Pye.[58] This performance was included on the Elements DVD in 2004 and on the DVD in the Deluxe and Ultimate Editions of the 2009 reissue of Tubular Bells.

Musicians for 2nd House performance:

Jon Field – flute
Fred Frith – bass, guitar
John Greaves – keyboards
Steve Hillage – guitar
Tim Hodgkinson – keyboards
Karl Jenkins – oboe
Geoff Leigh – flute
Pierre Moerlen (credited as "Pierre de Strasbourg" in the Radio Times programme listing)[58] – percussion
Tom Newman – voice (nasal choir) and mixing
Mike Oldfield – bass, guitar, Hammond organ
Terry Oldfield – flute
Mike Ratledge – keyboards
Ted Speight – guitar, bass
Mick Taylor – guitar
Choir (unknown)


Yes, that's it Conny - thanks.

The listings I found all left out the Softs boys for some reason...

Yeap just watched an interview with hillage and he talked about how it was redone because Oldfield wasn't on his game in the first performance so they redid it.

Long interview and Hillage is a little drool but lots of interesting stuff.

There's a bootleg recording of Queen Elizabeth Hall (including Part 2) on YouTube and it really isn't very good.
