This song has a great folk and rock blend. Great singing from maggie riley and a truly great guitar solo by Mike in the middle. Buy if you like a good rock song or if you want an introduction to the amazing world of Mike Oldfield.
it always confused me when I would hear this track on the radio & it's clearly a womans voice. then the DJ would say "mike oldfield there with Moonlight Shadow". Eventualy I became a fan & realised Maggie Reilly was a regular singer with Oldfield, And what a great collaboration. Maggie's silky vocals over Mike's cracking whimsical music. This is by far one of my favourite ever songs it all flows like a gentle stream. It's just a beautiful tune. If you are a fan of this track & haven't heard "Man in the Rain" from Tubular Bells III check it out it's basicly the same tune with slightly different lyrics..great too
