My mum and dad love Sky. They saw the group live back in the dark ages and I'm wondering is there any recording of a song that used a tuba player and was possibly called 'Whalesong'? Mum really loved it and I'd love to get a copy for her.

If I recall correctly the song is called "The whale". Whatever its correct name is, it is on Herbie Flowers LP "Little Potty". I believe he also played the piece in the Westminster Abbey gig with Sky. And I might have heard the theme also somewhere else, somewhere in the track "Animals" on Sky5?

Email me if you wish a CDR of this piece (and other pieces).

If this is the one you mean, it's "The Whale" which they played at Westminster Abbey.

Can't remember that he iluminated his tuba at Westminster Abbey, I though he only did it at the Val Doonican show.

Great pic!

I've seen the illuminated tuba in Glasgow along with the Noddy suit. I think he wore the suit on the George Harrison video for "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea".

Just checked Westminster footage.
The tuba does indeed have the fairy lights!
