By Jonathan Rowe VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an adorable album of heart-rending beauty, penned and performed in the late '70s by Mike Oldfield's lesser-known sister. You might, if you're of A Certain Age, dimly recall the mesmeric single Mirrors that charted (briefly) in '78. If you are also the sort of person who feels that brother Mike's Incantations better summed up the summer of '78 than, say, the Buzzcocks and Sham 69, you'll need little more encouragement from me. I imagine your cursor is already twitching over the "Buy Now With 1-Click" button.

But hold on. There's some Bad News too. You see, sister Sally was seemingly besotted with The Lord of the Rings while composing this song cycle and the whole album is steeped in a Tolkienesque marinade of questing Elves, woodland demigods and noble monarchs with healing hands. In fact, the second track is a 16-minute prog-folk odyssey which scrapes the nether regions of Tolkien's nigh-unreadable The Silmarillion for anthemic elven lyrics. Yes, you do well to shudder. Hey - I play Dungeons & Dragons and I still skip _that_ one more often than not!

The Bad News out of the way, we can focus on the Good News, which is twofold: (a) Sally Oldfield has an exceptional cut-glass folk voice, and (b) the songs are joyous, delicate and intricate compositions that will lodge themselves in your brain and demand to be heard over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece of beauty 2 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
This work consists of folk/spiritual/mystic songs themed on Lord Of The Rings. The tracks are woven seamlessly together to make a cohesive whole. It is in my opinion Sally's best album, and an under-rated masterpiece. I must have played it dozens of times, and every song is exquisite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten brilliance 23 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard this in 1978 when I bought the vinyl version and I loved it then. This CD was a real blast from the past, I had forgotten just what a beautiful voice Sally Oldfield has. The songs are so pretty and lyrics so ingenious I cannot imagine why I had not bought the CD before. I think it must be about 20 years ago that I last listened to this album, it won't be another 20, maybe 20 minutes.
