The Essential Mike Oldfield is a live concert video by Mike Oldfield. It was recorded live at the Knebworth Festival on 21 June 1980 in front of 45,000 people and the interviews are in Oldfield's studio. It was released on Laserdisc and VHS in 1980. Written by Mike Oldfield, except "Sailor's Hornpipe", Traditional. Interview part 1. "Guilty". Interview part 2. "Tubular Bells part 1". Interview part 3. "Tubular Bells part 2" (including The Sailor's Hornpipe).

The compilation concentrates on Oldfield's early album releases, his two re-workings under the "Tubular Bells" banner, his excellent "Songs of distant earth", and the more recent "Voyager" album. Many of his other albums are therefore absent altogether, and his singles output is largely ignored too (although space is found for "Portsmouth" and the superb "Moonlight shadow").

Mike Oldfield is a brilliant musician and composer whose career has spanned over 40 years. His most famous work ‘Tubular Bells’ was his very first album and sold millions of copies and launched his career at the young age of 19. This is a list of the top 5 Mike Oldfield albums. There are a lot of list out there that attempt to rate his albums. Most of them are compiled purely on individual taste, as music is an art form and not science. I wanted to create a list to put things in perspective based on the ‘essence’ of what a Mike Oldfield album embodies. If you break that down to a simple summary, the essential Oldfield album should be a single musical piece, based on folk roots and consisting of rock in a classical format. The simple fact that every list compares all of Oldfield’s works to Tubular Bells is pretty convincing evidence that this is the gold standard of Oldfield albums.

Crises is the eighth record album by Mike Oldfield, released in 1983 on Virgin Records. Oldfield's well known hits "Moonlight Shadow" and "Shadow on the Wall" appear on the album. The title track of the album is a twenty-minute-long piece, featuring a small amount of vocals, sung by Oldfield. The beginning and end of the track are driven by a synthesised lead passage, stylistically similar to the opening theme to Oldfield's Tubular Bells.

In 1973, Mike Oldfield burst onto the British music scene with his debut album Tubular Bells, two long instrumental suites in which Oldfield stitched together a series of melodies into a grandly scaled work in which he played the many instruments himself. The album was an audacious beginning to a career than saw him become one of the most respected artists in progressive rock, as well as a successful film composer
