    He's got an impressive body of work to his credit. Most people stop at "Tubular Bells" for some reason, which is a shame he's done some other fabulous recordings, and all over the place musically as well.

    I've always loved this song, I'm not 100% certain but I think it was his highest placed single, at least over here.

    Family Man.

    I only have Tubular Bells and Ommadawn (my favourite of the two). I thought his music was starting to sound the same after that. Maybe, I should give him another listen.

    Re: The Official Mike Oldfield Thread

    I do love Mike, he is a ripper of a musician, I have a number of his albums and have just started buying the remasters. I am waiting for " Crisis" to be remastered that is a lovely album or is it just me?

    Great thread CREAM'd and about time:)

    I was bombarded by MIKE OLDFIELDs Tubular bells,Hergest Ridge and Ommadawn from my elder sister.....so his music was drilled into me even if I liked it or not :uh:
    Never got round to getting any of his albums...but I give him respect:grinthumb
