Of all the various versions of Tubular Bells, this, the second to be recorded I think, is my favourite because it has a sound to match the vision. Made off the back of the huge popularity of the original it stands comparisons with any of the subsequent re-makes and remixes.

Oldfield was a wonder to play all the instruments on the original, and he made some interesting points with all the follow ups, including the bum note removing total re-recording of a few years back, but only this orchestral version has the subtlety and strength of a full orchestra to bring every aspect of the music to life.

It would be going too far to say the difference is similar to that of a colour TV version of a black and white original, it's more the DVD HD version of an old VHS tape: it's all there, just clearer, sharper and ultimately with more feeling.

If the original version of 'Tubular Bells' wasn't enough, 'The Orchestral Tubular Bells' takes it one step further. Arranged by David Bedford and performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, this rendition is as equally haunting as Mike's original masterpiece. Mike appears in the second part on acoustic guitar, making the listener remember whose music this is. Definitely not one to be omitted from any Mike Oldfield fan's collection.

When I first started to play this cd I wasnt to interested, but has the music progresses the orchestral interpretation of the original tubular bells are originally refreshing and amusing. Overall I really enjoyed this version and have played it time and time again. Highly recommend if you are Mike Oldfield tubular bells fan.

This was a great idea and I think it starts really well. However, at various points in track 2 the quality and coherence of the playing takes a dive and some of the bum notes and out of time playing really bring it down. I could understand these flaws if it was played once, live, and there wasn't a chance to fix the errors. Given all the attention that Mike Oldfield has given Tubular Bells in its various forms, I think that he could do much worse than simply re-recording this good rich orchestral treatment of his music, without the annoying errors.
