5.0 out of 5 stars THIS MAN IS THE BEST MUSICIAN THE WORLD HAS EVER KNOWN, 8 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Live at Montreux [DVD] [1981] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I have been a fan of Mike Oldfield since a teenager in 1976 but have only recently bought this d.v.d after seeing snippets of it on u tube. The way he plays a guitar, making it sing in a way no one else seems to manage is incredible. He plays guitar with such passion that the rest of us can only be left in awe as to such a creative being. The way he toys with the audience at the end, gazing angelicly with those stunning blue eyes is amazing and the way he bites on his plectrum and teases the audience is something not to be missed. I wish I had gone to this concert years ago but this dvd is something to treasure as now I can watch it whenever I like. The only thing that spoils this Dvd for me is the singing of Maggie Riley. Don't get me wrong - Maggie has a lovely voice but I feel it is too overbearing at times and detracts from the music which is really so good on its own it does not require any vocals other than the ocassional background chant. Mike is primarily an instrumentalist and I think he has been put under too much pressure over the years to have singers to accompany his work.

Appreciate you sharing your love for the man like Oldfield. Unfortunately, this is a Suzanne Vega DVD, with no sign of the Tubular Bells supremo.
