The set starts with an excellent live performance of 'Tubular Bells' from the BBC's "2nd House". Very much a product of the times - all serious looks with the emphasis being on the music rather than big light displays.
The videos from the Seventies emphasise Mike's multi instrumental skills ('In Dulci Jubilo', 'Portsmouth' and 'William Tell Overture' are pretty much the same video set to different music! The biggest surprise being a video for 'Don Alfonso' - one that probably most people have never seen.
The clips from the Eighties show off the technology of the day - it has to be said they look very dated now but at least most of the music compensates for this!
The extras are pretty comprehensive - an extract from the rare "Space Movie", 'The Wind Chimes' and an interview dating back to the early Nineties.
All in all a must have for a Mike Oldfield fan...not sure if it has much appeal for others but it does have enjoyable moments and the music is certainly high quality pretty much throughout.
It's al here and a lot more besides from the first video of tubular bells to wind chimes (witch is a video version of Islands c d ) It's also nice to see videos of the singles as well .
Don Alfonso reminds me of Benny hill gladly Mikes music got better
I became a fan of mikes music from his platinum tour and started collecting his music past and present but some videos went out of print but thanks to this dvd my collection is now complete.
The main reason I bought this was for wind chimes ant tubular bells (BBC Performance) but I'm impressed with all of the dvd grate value with two hours fifty minuets of footage
