Tubular Bells Mike Oldfield - V2001

£14.99

Product description

'Tubular Bells' is the first album by English musician Mike Oldfield, recorded when he was 19 and released in 1973 when he was 20. It was the first album released by Virgin Records and an early cornerstone of the company's success. Vivian Stanshall provided the voice of the 'Master of Ceremonies' who reads off the list of instruments at the end of the first movement. The opening piano solo was used briefly in the soundtrack to the William Friedkin film The Exorcist (released the same year), the album gained considerable airplay because of the film's success.

Tracklist
Tubular Bells
A Part One 25:00
B Part Two 23:50

Matrix / runout
Side 1 (stamped): V 2001 A-2U
Side 2 (stamped): V 2001 B-3U

If it were not for a previous owner writing their name on the back cover and on both labels this product would have been considered in excellent condition. As it is, there are few flaws other than some very light dust soiling on the back cover, a little bumping to the open edge of the front of the sleeve and light surface scratching on side 2, which does not adversely affect playback quality.
