Moogular Bells

Over the last couple of decades, former Psychedelic Furs keyboard player Joe McGinty has been gradually amassing a truly envy-inducing collection of vintage keyboards. To demonstrate some of the classic and bizarre members of this collection, McGinty recently assembled 20 of New York's finest keyboard players to record an arrangement of that often schism-inducing piece of pop-prog, Tubular Bells. Before you run screaming from the drawing room, dear listener, we at the Moonbase feel sure that wherever you stand on Mike Oldfield you will be dazzled and tickled in equal measure by this wonderful performance.

You can watch the recording of the arrangement right here:

You may purchase the track on Amazon or iTunes.

This track is also featured in PMB022: Stylophonic, due out later this very day (13 March 2011).

Oh, by the way, if anyone knows what the cute little orange keyboard visible in the background above (and again at 4:12) is, we'd love to know.
