Επόμενο βήμα για τον Mike Oldfield μετά την απροσδόκητη, τεράστια επιτυχία του Tubular Bells ήταν μια ακόμα “ενιαία” σύνθεση σε δυο μέρη, ένα για κάθε πλευρά του δεύτερού του LP. Ακούμε ένα μέρος του Hergest Ridge Part 1. Για την ηχογράφησή του συνεργάσθηκαν αρκετοί μουσικοί, ο ίδιος συνθέτης ακούγεται σε πλήθος έγχορδων, πληκτροφόρων και κρουστών οργάνων.
Mike Oldfield γεννήθηκε αυτό το μήνα πριν από 71 χρονια.

The next step for
Mike Oldfield after the unexpected, huge success of Tubular Bells was another “single” composition in two parts, one for each side of his second LP. We listen to a part of Hergest Ridge Part 1. Several musicians have collaborated in this recording, the composer himself can be heard in a variety of string, keyboard and percussion instruments.
Mike Oldfield was born this month 71 years ago.
