Mike Oldfield - Airborn album download

Written-By – Mike Oldfield. A2. Part 2: Platinum. Written-By – Mike Oldfield. A3. Part 3: Charleston. Airborn' was the US/Canada release of 'Platinum'. As with various other stateside releases by various UK artists in past years, the featured tracks were changed slightly, and a second LP was included featuring a very strange live/studio remix of Tubular Bells and Incantations. The tracks 'Sally' and 'Woodhenge' were replaced with 'Guilty' and 'into Wonderland'. The second LP remixes could be described as a bodge, featuring several minutes alternating studio and live segments, cutting at appropriate pauses.

Written-By – Mike Oldfield. I first came across this album while stationed in Iceland in 1980, loved it and lost it a few years later.

Platinum is the fifth record album by Mike Oldfield, released in 1979 on Virgin Records. It was Oldfield's first album to include shorter songs and music written by others. A modified version of the album was released in the United States and Canada and titled Airborn. The In Concert 1980 tour, which ran from April to December of that year, was in promotion of the album. In Germany the album peaked at number 11. The album has since been reissued with bonus material.

This album is nothing else than the Platinum album, plus the "Guilty" track, and minus the "Woodhenge" track. This record is probably Oldfield's most representative work of the progressive rock style. Mike's many electric guitars solos are VERY catchy and melodic, like on the QE2 album. All the tracks are at least very good.

Crises is the eighth record album by Mike Oldfield, released in 1983 on Virgin Records. Oldfield's well known hits "Moonlight Shadow" and "Shadow on the Wall" appear on the album. The title track of the album is a twenty-minute-long piece, featuring a small amount of vocals, sung by Oldfield. The beginning and end of the track are driven by a synthesised lead passage, stylistically similar to the opening theme to Oldfield's Tubular Bells.

Artist: Mike Oldfield. Has been played on. Germany 6.
