The Bronze Years  (continued)
 
"After "Celebration" went gold, Sally Oldfield went on an extended tour documented on the album "Sally Oldfield in Concert". She ended her collaboration with Bronze Records with an album that is considered one of her best." 

""Strange Day In Berlin" was produced by Hans Zimmer, then a budding composer who was to become a legend for his movie scores like "Rain Man", "Pirates Of The Caribbean" and “Gladiator“. He gave Sally the possibility of exploring  orchestral atmospheres in her musical expression and the album yielded the hit single "Path With A Heart"."

"After 6 years of touring, recording, TV-shows and chart success it was time to take a break, only to come back with a huge surprise for her fans reaching out for an even wider audience."

Sally Oldfield - Becoming a Popstar
 
"1987 saw the return of Sally Oldfield with the album "Femme" led by "Silver Dagger" the first of 4 singles taken from the album. "Femme". This saw the return of a singer who was ready for pop stardom."

""Silver Dagger" entered the top of the charts in Germany and Europe as did the album, giving  her not only a successful comeback, but extended her following once more. The song is still a staple on German radio and might be one explanation why Germany in particular fell in love with Sally Oldfield."

"In 1988 "Instincts" was  released. The album includes "Let It begin",a duet with Moody Blues singer Justin Hayward.  Well known for the video that accompanied the song it turned Sally Oldfield into a member of the MTV generation . Both albums show Sally Oldfield at the top of the pop genre."

The Nineties 
 
"The Nineties saw a return for Sally in fine form.  Both albums "Natasha" and "The Flame" were a step back to her roots combined with a rockier edge, more evidence of her versatility as she continued to explore  the wide field of her musical and lyrical skills."

"She also collaborated with her brother Terry Oldfield on his  album “Star of Heaven“ including a beautiful rendition of the classic “Ave Maria“."

"In 1994 she entered the German and European charts again. The album "Three Rings" with epic songs and pop tunes spawned the hit singles "Digging For Gold" and "Summer Of Love" while keeping old fans happy with aerial and folk influenced melodies like "The Blessing", "Survival" and the title track influenced by J.R. Tolkein’s“Lord of the Rings“."

 ""Secret Songs"  and "Flaming Star" ended the Millennium era - two critically acclaimed albums combining Sally Oldfield's unmistakable style with ethno-beats and world music influences. "Secret Songs" features the special song "Mystic Drum". hailed as a firm favourite amongst  her growing following of spiritually orientated fans with it's soaring melody and inspiring lyrics."

Where exactly did "Celebration" go gold? In the UK, her only chart hit was the single "Mirrors".
Was she popular in Germany from the start?

I'm assuming Sally Oldfield's "Celebration" went Gold in Europe, but Sally's real golden nuggets for me are her two wonderful albums from the mid-nineties: Three Rings (1994) & Secret Songs (1996). Thumbs Up

Entering a new millennium

"Sally Oldfield surprised critics again when she entered the new millennium where she was least expected. In 2001 a remix of "Mirrors" turned her into a queen of the clubs. This new version of Sally Oldfield's classic hit peaked right at the top of the dance charts, introducing her music to a whole new generation."  

"Subsequently Sally Oldfield took a break again not knowing how long it might be. But after all, what looked like a circle closing is more like a Zen circle leaving the end open."

"The colorful life and eclectic songs will go on as Sally is ready to be back. But what can people expect? One thing for sure. It will be a surprise!."


4 stars Flaming Star (2001)

Mystique: the 17th and last album from Sally Oldfield, although hopefully, it won't turn out to be her final album, if Sally blesses us with another album in the 2020's. Heart
