Manufacturer Description

Digitally re-mastered deluxe two disc (CD + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) edition of the British guitarist's 1975 album including a bonus original demo of the perennial Christmas favorite, 'In Dulce Jubilo' plus a DVD that features 5.1 surround sound mixes by Oldfield and the original promo videos for 'In Dulci Jubilo' and 'Portsmouth'. Ommadawn remains one of Oldfield's favorite works. Recorded at his then home at Hergest Ridge, it again took the form of two lengthy suites of music, but here there are added Irish and African influences. Oldfield looked towards composition on traditional instruments; It is affecting music that acted as a precursor to the New Age musical movement. Featuring folk legends Clodagh Simons and Paddy Moloney as well as African drummers, Jabula, Ommadawn is a work of great beauty, and like Hergest Ridge before it, established the fact that there was much more to Mike Oldfield than Tubular Bells.
