Listened to Mike Oldfield's Exposed live album, it's been a while, seems like an old friend showed up after 5 years missing. "Revisiting old CDs after purchasing new amps" effect.

How is that as a live performance? I haven’t got anything from him since “Tubular Bells” in the early 70s. I’m curious how his style translates to a live performance. Also any chance you’ve heard the multi-channel SACD version of “Tubular Bells.” I read that it was remastered from the quadraphonic version and wondered how it compared.

Cheers,
Dean

Hey I remember Tubular Bells very well, great song, although the video scared the bejeezus out of me.

I have most of his albums from Tubular Bells to early 90s. His musical style has changed from long 20 plus minutes tunes to shorter pop standards, but he does go back to the 20 plus tunes in some of his later albums. Mike's music is not too popular here in America as compared to Great Britain, as most only know him as "the guy whose music is in The Exorcist" on the state side. The life performance was enjoyable even after all these years, his guest vocal reminds me of Lisa Gerrard of Dead Can Dance, often ethereal and haunting at the same time. There is not much variation of the live performance to the studio version. Sorry, I have not heard the SACD version of Tubular Bells, but I do have it on CD, and he speaks thru his music without words :). Speaking of Lisa Gerrard, her music can be heard in the Gladiator soundtrack, which is incredible IMHO.

Thanks CV, too much work for me (yes, I'm incredibly lazy), but I did like the music.

I like it well enough to look forward to a full release from her. Here's hoping she sticks with it and develops her style.

Yes, me too, and I will buy it once it's commercialized to the point of being available on a website somewhere. (I'm not that picky, any internet store front will do) ;\)

I actually preferred Ommadawn to Tubular Bells, haven't heard it for probably 20yrs, but I can hear the "chant" in my head as I post!

If it happens, don't ruin it by yelling out "Oh, Regina!!!"
