The Complete Mike Oldfield
Artist: Mike Oldfield
Disc 1 (61:48)
Disc 2 (55:57)
Anything that claims to be "complete" is really reaching when it only consists of two CDs (and some of his albums aren't even represented...). This collection (originally released in 1985) includes some tracks you could class as rarities - most of which are in the first section of instrumental tracks, including Mike's version of the Blue Peter theme, the studio version of Guilty, and Jungle Gardenia. The vocals section predictably includes mostly tracks from his early eighties albums.
This leaves the "Complex" section (excerpts from Mike's longer instrumental albums) and the "live" section. The only real surprise here is the Tubular Bells extract is the end of part one instead of the start... The live tracks are pretty good though.
