This page is a discography for the musician Mike Oldfield. Although the introduction theme was used in The Exorcist, Tubular Bells (1973) was not a soundtrack album. Oldfield was commissioned to produce the music for NASA's The Space Movie in 1979; no soundtrack album was released at the time. However a DVD and CD soundtrack (though the CD content is just the audio track from the DVD, including voiceovers and sound effects) were issued in October 2015.
Mike Oldfield’s sixth album was a beautiful blend of instrumentals and songs that showed how he was able to adapt to the shifting musical mores of the new decade. Released in October 1980, it features two of his most loved instrumentals, QE2 and Taurus, as well as cover versions of Wonderful Land by the Shadows and, surprisingly perhaps for the time, Arrival by Abba. Highlights from this staggering collection – personally compiled and sequenced by Mike Oldfield – include the seminal Tubular Bells Part One, the pioneering Ommadawn, plus a string of classic singles including’Moonlight Shadow, Guilty and Family Man. Along the way the journey takes in from folk, progressive rock,, electronic, ambient, new age, world, pop and even disco! As Mike says: This collection is my own personal choice of what I consider to be my best instrumental and songwriting works to date.
