Nothing needs really be said about the music (see individual album reviews if you need to know more about the music). This review is really about the package itself. This really is an incredible value for money box set and is excellent quality to boot! The six albums are all housed in a very sturdy slip case which is of much higher quality than a lot of the flimsy cardboard outer cases I have seen on a lot of these album bundle packages that seem so popular now. The individual albums themselves come in gatefold sleeves, again in high qualiy card. The graphics on each disc are colour 'themed' featuring minature black & white 'emblems' of the particular album sleeve in question - a nice touch in attention to detail. Each album is the newly remastered version in each case complete with bonus tracks. All in all an exceptional package - at Amazon;s current price equates to two quid per album!Definately a must have even if you already own two or three of the albums here! Hope all the aforementioned details help if you are in two minds as to whether to buy iy. The answer is a resounding go for it!

Mike oldfield Classic album collection (73-80)
This box set contains the first six studio albums by mike Oldfield and bonus tracks.

--Tubular bells-
mike Oldfield's single and sailor's hornpipe
--Hergest ridge-
in dulce Jubilo (for Maureen) and Spanish tune
--ommadawn-
in dulce jubilo, first excursion, arguers and Portsmouth
--incantations-
guilty
--platinum-
platinum live, north star(2012) and blue Peter.
--QE2-
Polka, Wonderful land and Shiva.

I will also not go into the music on this box set as most people who are looking at this will know of mike Oldfield and there are also many good reviews for these albums over the web. I will just talk about the box itself.
The 6 albums come in a thick card box that is rather sturdy and will protect the single album cases easy. Each album comes in a rather thin card case the same as the original LP cases. These cases fold open to contain photos or artwork. The card is ok its a little thin but its one of the best for this type of packaging I have seen. Some albums have the same artwork they have since there creation and some are brand new such as incantations. Inside the cases there is either pictures of mike himself or old cover art or replicated sleeve art from the original LPs. The CDs in the box set have been re designed with general colours i.e. tubular bells is blue and QE2 is red and the disk also gives what tracks are on the disk and a small photo of the CD cover. This box set is the basic box set as it has no booklets with the albums of 1 big one about them all which I would have liked to have had but it's still worth it.

Over all the box set is nice and good for the money. I agree with what allot of people are saying even if you already have a mike Oldfield CD or 2 or have the LPs you can't use this is a good box to pick up.

As a poor student I had heard Tubular Bells, loved both the music and the concept but couldn't bring myself to spend the money on the album. To get not just one but six Mike Oldfield CDs for this price was fantasic. Great to listen to when I want to relax.

Some tracks are better than others, but not having collected any of these albums individually this was an excellent value to get much of Mike Oldfield's back catalogue in one purchase.
