Format: Audio CD
I got this set on LP even though I had all the first three albums already. I got it on tape when I found it cheap even though I'd bought all the first three albums on tape already. I don't have Hergest Ridge on CD yet, and I'm thinking maybe I'll get this set instead even though I have the other two albums on CD already.
Why? Well, the sound quality is vastly improved, for one thing. This set showed me what a difference remixing could make. The tonal balance on Ommadawn is much more subtle, and the effect consequently greater, than the original album. The original version of the hornpipe at the end of TB was great fun and to my mind remains so.
What clinched it for me, though, was the bonus album, "Collaborations." There are some lovely pieces on this album, some taken from albums by the composer David Bedford which might be hard to find nowadays, some singles (e.g. "Portsmouth"), one of the most searingly intense piano-guitar duets I have ever heard ("First Excursion"), and finally the sublime vocal stylings of Messrs. Oldfield and Bedford on "Speak (Tho' You Only Say Farewell)." You cannot miss this tour de force.
I loved this collection. Still do....

I bought this album on the vinyl boxed set when it originally came out in the autumn of 1976- and had always wanted to get it on CD-so buying this copy was well worth the wait -think the original said it was in quadrophonic but found out years later that it was stereo doubled and not really in quad. Anyhow the music is great- always loved the track on Collaborations -First Excursion- which is amazing -love it!Actually now with the 5.1
surround sound it would truly be in quadrophonic.For all Oldfield fans it is a must-all the early 3 albums there and the extra Collaborations with David
Bedford and Les Penning.

I had owned this boxed set on vinyl many years ago when it was first released and I loved it then. Revisiting the boxed set was a real pleasure. I ordered it via Momox.co.uk on this Amazon site. It was delivered well within the time limit and was well packaged. My only disappointment was that the discs had pitting in the lacquer on the non playable side (label side) of the discs, possibly due to age. However the discs play perfectly well and their sound quality was good.

Would I buy from this seller again?....I already have and the goods were in great condition. Would I recommend this seller?....Yes I Would.
