5 stars Just picked up this really beaut of a DVD.I've got all of Mike Oldfield DVD's but this is by far the best so far.Perfect sound quality (remarkable for a 1981 concert in fact) and nice editing with good variety of camera angles etc.Some of my favourite Oldfield works are displayed in all their glory with Ommadawn part One this best of the bunch IMO.The extended drum/percussion workout at the end is an absolute joy and they extract every last ounce of juice from it.The rockier versions of Tubular Bells may not be to everyone's taste admittedly but personally I prefer it in this form.You also get the superb Platinum wonderfully played.The encore Punkadiddle is quite funny with all the band (bar Maggie Reilly and Tim Cross) playing topless!!

This is a 100% prog lovers DVD.Extended peices and no songs to get in the way; Mike Oldfield as you love him.If you only get one Oldfield DVD make it this one.
