What's the music at the end of 'Eclipse'?

Partially Reprinted from the Echoes FAQ

Nobody knows. But everyone seems to have heard it at one time... If you listen to the very very end of "Eclipse", and turn your volume up very very high, you will very very faintly hear some music. This has been pointed out several times, but nobody has ever been able to pinpoint exactly what the song is. Some think it's a Beatles song, others, classical music. And why is it there? A studio trick? Or just sound bleeding through from another studio? Truth is, we'll probably never know...

Apparently, however, the original "Black Label" Harvest CD does not have this music. Curiouser and curiouser....

D. Corbett sent me another idea on this:

I listened to it in headphones and isolated the sound -- it appears to be clips from at least two different songs. One of them is 'Slipstream' by Jethro Tull, and what seems to be outtakes of a riff in Slipstream. The section that immediately follows is also a Tull song, I think, but I cannot place the tune.
