First a link to his home page

and his wiki page

Mike is probably best known for his album Tubular Bells featuring Vivian Stanshall

I guess Tubular Bells was such a success that there’s a Tubular Bells II and III. I won’t be sampling from any of these. Instead I’ll be selecting from his shorter works.

Lets begin with Moonlight Shadow

Moonlight Shadow is from the album Crisis. This is the original and to my mind best version although there are lots of covers out there some of which are excellent.

To France

To France is from the album Discovery

On Horseback

On Horseback is from the album Ommadawn

Guilty

A live version of Guilty can be found on Music Wonderland

That’s it for Mike.
