Alexa De Paris on piano?

I LOVEEEEE Alexa De Paris. I can play it on repeat on hours without even getting annoyed or tired but I also love the way Christopher Tracy plays it on the piano while Tricky and Mary dance. Does anyone know where I can hear the piano version of it?

Don't know. But I couldn't resist posting this link,
it's not often that UTCM gets ripped in high quality.
Such gorgeous B&W photography.

Not sure it would work on the piano.
It's full of harmonics, bendings, slides,
things only a guitar can produce.

I know it's gorgeous on the guitar! Like it belongs to the guitar but I'm pretty sure he was playing it on the piano. It sounded so nice, not as nice as the guitar of course.

Love, love, love Alexa de Paris. Like you I could play this on repeat and never get tired of it.

Loved it when I was young back then when UTCM came out, and still love it more now.

Ah, the memories! I so love the guitar playing on this song, and the strings oh man. I do feel it's too complex to get the feeling across via the piano however.
