Late night grocery shopping, heard what seemed to be a sort of jazz piano led version of "Roundabout". The oddest thing?  It sounded like Jon Anderson on vocals!  Anyone ever heard of this?

I haven't. Sounds like you are one of the lucky ones.

There was an acoustic version of Roundabout on one of the YES boxsets back around 2005 maybe.

Here's one that just popped into my head. Back in the very early 1990's I remember there was a beer commercial on tv that used "windchimes part 1" from Mike Oldfield's "Islands" album.

Also, in a similar vein I talked to a guy at a Jon Anderson concert once who told me he got into Jon Anderson through his association with Vangelis and only discovered Vangelis because of some of his music that was used in a tv commercial(but I have no idea what commercial). How weird is that? Talk about a roundabout(no pun intended)way of discovering prog musicians. :)

At a NYC-themed pizza place today waiting for a pickup. Bunch of anonymous ska was playing on the intercom. All of a sudden, the music changed and Rush "Hemispheres" started playing from the start, and stayed that way. I complimented them on their taste and learned that they occasionally decided to humor the "Rush guy" behind the oven...

I was just listening to some Mike Oldfield a few days ago, and it remided me of something, though it's not actually of something I heard on public space, but rather something I put on. On my father's store were I was helping him, I had been puting some music that I would consider soft enough, but I tried to keep thing on my taste. So I had been puting "Songs from Distant Earth" from time to time. In one ocassion, there came a customer, it would seem to me, kind of awed, asking what was it that we had on, so I guess I got Oldfield a new fan there. Now, this other part is just speculation, but a few weeks later I found that same album in stock in the most popular local music store, and since they hadn't had that album in stock for a good while, I just got the impression that perhaps that same guy had ended up ordering the album there (since, back then, when someoned ordered something they didn't have in stock, they usually got at least two pieces, one for whomever ordered it, and another for stock).
