    Thanks Sweaty. If you're buying the remasters of his albums,the Tubular Bells ''Delux'' version is a must have,it comes with a 5.1 remix that sounds excellent,also included is this video of Mike and a few other musicians performing for the BBC



    You Should Snowblue,try the QE2 album:grinthumb

    :cheers2

    Been meaning to post here for a while now. I know it's a bit of a given, but I love Tubular Bells! Everything from the sensational build ups, the instrument introductions, the dark eerie sections and the complete nonsense of the last few minutes, creates a massive suite and a fantastic album! :grinthumb

    Love Mike Oldfield
    I bought Mike Oldfield-boxed back in 77-78. It contains Tubular Bells, Ommadawn and Hergest Ridge. All great albums and I love all the instrumentation. Incantations is another great album. Pierre Moerlen (Gong) plays on a bunch of his albums Ommadawn, Incantations, Crisis and a few others.

    I like his last album too Music of the Spheres.

    Love Pierre's marimbas

    Love Mike's music , I think he should have been chosen to write a composition for the UK olympics .

    If there is any justice in this world , Mike ought to be Knighted ! :tm:
