Jack Hues recalls: "I know we used to have a reel to reel tape of the keyboard part for "Ornamental" and I recall doing an outdoor festival in England (with Jethro Tull!) where the power came off an AC generator which made the speed of the motor of the tape recorder oscillate up and down. The low keyboard note that starts it off was rising and falling by about a fifth! One of those moments in front of a few thousand people where you wonder why you ever contemplated life as a musician."
