Mike Oldfield Voyager on 180g LP
The music of Mike Oldfield is some of the most spiritual, ethereal, reflective and sensual in rock - and above all, incomparable, it’s no wonder he is a true British icon. One of the most successful artists of all time, since the release of his seminal album Tubular Bells - which kick-started the Virgin Records label and Richard Branson’s fledgling business empire in 1973, selling some 17 million copies - the award-winning producer/musician has continued to break new ground with each fresh body of work.
The self-taught multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer has worked throughout his career across a staggering variety of music styles – from folk and progressive rock to jazz, electronic, ambient, new age, world, pop and even disco. Oldfield is one of those rare breeds of composer whose music continues to be re-evaluated and re-appreciated to this very day.
Issued in 1996, Voyager is Mike Oldfield's Celtic-themed seventeenth studio album which flawlessly melds new original compositions like "Celtic Rain," "The Voyager," "Wild Goose Flaps Its Wings" and "Mont St. Michel" with traditional fare like "The Hero," "Women of Ireland," "She Moves Through the Fair," "Dark Island" and "Flowers of the Forest."
