A site mostly to give information on Mike Oldfield Bootleg releases...
....but there's some of my own stuff too... (see below)
But first - some blatant plugging!
Virgin EMI are delighted to announce Mike Oldfield's first album of new material since 2008.
Featuring 11 brand new tracks, MAN ON THE ROCKS is a deeply personal song-based album that reflects many of Mike's different influences. Recorded in the Bahamas, Mike's 25th studio album has been produced by Mike with legendary British producer Stephen Lipson (Jeff Beck, Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox). Man On The Rocks features players such as legendary bassist Leland Sklar (Phil Collins, Crosby, Stills & Nash, James Taylor) and drummer John Robinson (Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton, Daft Punk).
Although Oldfield has worked with some of the world's most famous vocalists in the past, here he has found an incredible young talent to interpret his words, Luke Spiller from the Struts.

(Some explanation: When the news that Mike was working on a "New Tubular Bells album" was put out by Mike's PA, ( the astounding Caroline Monk), it led to a flurry of cover-art being created by members of the
Mike Oldfield Personal Face book pag)
Not only were covers for TBIV created, but also versions of what the discussion morphed into... Tubular Bells ZERO!)
Though we still await actual news of what is coming next, I have collected the creations below. All are the copyright of their creators (but not the 'Bell' symbol!) and I will gladly remove them if the owners email me and let me know!
