Discovery
Used - LP - VL 2294
1984 Canadian Original With Custom Inner Sleeve. “With 1984's Discovery, Mike Oldfield Seems To Be Back On Track, Utilizing The Vocal Power Of Maggie Reilly And The Drum Playing Of Simon Phillips To Create Some Rather Appealing Selections. "The Lake" Is A Simply Gorgeous Instrumental Inspired By Switzerland's Lake Geneva, The Location In Which The Album Was Recorded, While "To France" Is A Powerful Pop/Rock Tune Based On The Life Of Mary, Queen Of Scots. Both Reilly And Barry Palmer Share The Vocal Duties Throughout The Tracks, Signifying Oldfield's Subtle Emergence Into A More Pop-Infused Atmosphere. "Tricks Of The Light" Is A Wonderful Instrumental That Relies On The Keyboard To Give It Energy, While Even So-So Efforts Like The Title Track And "Poison Arrows" Come Off As Upbeat And Inspired. Discovery Peaked At Number 15 In The U.K., And Even Though It Didn't Garner Much Attention Elsewhere, It Serves As One Of Mike Oldfield's Most Entertaining Releases From The Decade.” – Mike DeGagne, AMG more

Killing Fields
New - LP - V2328
Sealed 1984 UK Original. “Crack All The Jokes You Want About Mike Oldfield And His Tubular Bells Becoming The Hit Theme Song For The Exorcist. While Oldfield Is An Amazing Guitarist Who Could Play With The Best Of Them, With A Lithe Synth Touch That Became A Trademark, The Bottom Line Is That The Man Is A Serious Composer. All The Proof One Needs Apart From His Own Records Like Incantations And Hergest Ridge Is This Killer Movie Score. While Oldfield Used A Purely Western And Neo-Classical Formal Approach To Write The Music For Roland Joffé's Dramatization Of True Events, His Musical Mates Were Among The Best In The Business At Helping Him To Bring It Off: David Bedford Wrote Arrangements And Directed The Choir, While Eberhard Schoener Helped To Conduct And Direct Another Choir (!) And Master Percussionist Morris Pert Lent His Talents To The Mix As Well. While Many Scores Written During The 1980s Come Off As Laughable Fluff In The 21st Century, Oldfield's Score For The Killing Fields Is In Many Ways Far More Memorable Than The Film Itself. The Music Here Is Full Of Drama, Dynamic, Textures, And Unexpected Twists And Turns Even In The Smallest Of The Incidental Pieces, And Carries Within It A Certain Majesty That Lacks Pomp And Remains Graceful Throughout.” – Thom Jurek, AMG more

Tubular Bells II
New Import - 2564623323
Sealed 2015 180gm Promo, Scratch Through Barcode On Back Cover. "Tubular Bells Ii Is The Update And/Or Sequel To Mike Oldfield's Landmark 1973 New Age Recording Tubular Bells, Which Will Resonate Forever As The Haunting Theme To The Exorcist. Here, Oldfield Repeats His Multi-Instrumental Performance, Playing Guitar, Banjo, Organ, Percussion, Mandolin, And The Titular Tubular Bells, Although In A Nod To Modernism, The Latter Instruments Often Appear As Samples Through Oldfield's Kurzweil Synth Rig. It's The Piece's Captivating Main Theme That Again Takes Center Stage Here. The Eight-Minute Opening Track "Sentinel" Plays It Off Of Whining Guitars And Breathy Female Vocals. The Latter Element Is A Nice Touch. The Genre That The Original Bells Helped Establish Has Come Quite A Ways In 20 Years, And This Fact Isn't Lost On Oldfield. Throughout Ii, He Incorporates The Multi-cultural Influences That Have Cross-Pollinated With New Age, Bringing In Breathy Ethnic Flutes, Asian-Inflected String Sounds, And The Whispered Foreign Words Of "Sentinel." The Famous Ceiling Of The Album, Where Each Instrument Is Introduced By A Narrator, Becomes Another Summit Between Old And New. Alan Rickman Handles The Introductions (During "Bell") And Runs Through A Litany Of Instruments That Includes "Digital Sound Processor," Reed And Pipe Organ, "The Venetian Effect," Glockenspiel, "Two Slightly Sampled Electric Guitars," And Vocal Chords, Which Rickman Introduces As If They're An Exotic Museum Piece. Some Of Oldfield's Fancy-Handed Riffs Fail; The Bagpipes Of "Tattoo" Seem Too Obvious And "Sunjammer" Sounds Like An Unfortunate Outtake From The Who's Tommy. But Overall, Tubular Bells II Succeeds Mightily. It Doesn't Beat Its Predecessor, But Does Update Its Sonics And Technology With Oldfield's Flair For Studied Grandiosity." AMG - Johnny Loftus. more
