It was in 1973 that Mike Oldfield’s largely instrumental “Tubular Bells” launched Virgin Records, the revolutionary British record label that also kick-started the career of founder Richard Branson, now a famous billionaire. More than 40 years later, it is hard to imagine that for the now classic pop album “Tubular Bells,” there were no takers from the regular record labels. Then Virgin launched it as its inaugural album - and it stayed in the British charts for 279 weeks. By now, some estimated 15 million copies have been sold worldwide. This 3 CD- box “Virgin Records: 40 Years Of Disruptions” looks back on the four decades since Branson and his colleagues launched their rebel record label, which began as a home for rockers of a proggy persuasion. The hit-story of the company is presented in mostly chronological order, going from Mike Oldfield to electro band Chvrches.

“40 Years” focuses on (especially British) songs that stormed the charts. As a result, there’s not much from the ‘70s, years which are only represented by Oldfield’s “Tubular Bells” with its opening theme and “God Save The Queen” from the Sex Pistols. So no Tangerine Dream, for example. The ‘80s are epitomized by, among others, million-sellers like T'Pau, The Human League, Phil Collins, Culture Club and Simple Minds, as well as tracks from groundbreaking records by Giorgio Moroder, Inner City, Neneh Cherry and Soul II Soul. For the ‘90s, the same goes for Massive Attack, Enigma, Daft Punk and Air, showing how Virgin oversaw the birth of new, electronic dance genres.

The mega-success of girl group Spice Girls gets noted too, by including their 1996 debut single “Wannabe.
