This is a great DVD of two live performances of Mike Oldfield. Side One is Tubular Bells II performed live at Edinburgh Castle. Mike and his other musicians, and the orchestra all play pretty close to the original album of Tubular Bells II. It's rather disappointing that the "Altered State" segment has to be a part of his most cherished album ever. I cringe every time I here the album go into that annoying "caveman-like" tangent. It follows "Tattoo" (with the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards" on bagpipes) which is my favorite part of TB II.

On Side Two of the DVD, Mike and his fellow performers play his 1998 album Tubular Bells III at the Horse Guards Parade in London. If you already bought his DVD of "The Art in Heaven -Millennium Bell Concert", you will see many of his same performers are with him on this performance of Tubular Bells III.

The sound quality is excellent on both sides of this DVD. However, strangely enough, the video quality is better on the earlier TB II performance. Not to say that TB III is bad, it's just not as good.

Now, I know everybody who likes Mike Oldfield is criticizing him for re-recording and re-packaging Tubular Bells over and over, and over again these past 30 plus years. But, if it wasn't for the 1992 release of Tubular Bells II, I would have probably just let myself forget all about him. I really didn't follow Mike Oldfield's music much after Crises (1983) and The Killing Fields (1984). I didn't care for how Mike Oldfield was doing less long played projects and started to perform pop sounding ditties with other singers. Sometimes, you wouldn't know if you were listening to Mike Oldfield or ABBA. "Family Man", "To France", "Moonlight Shadow", etc.

First, pay attention: this is a "REGION TWO" disc, which won't play on Region One coded (North America) DVD players. My solution was to get a region-free player (yes, just for this disc, although I am ordering more Region Two's from Europe now) from OPPO. Excellent universal (including DVD-Audio and SACD) disc players for very reasonable prices, by the way. Not cheap, but they perform above their price.

So, on to the DVD content! I held a "Mike Oldfield Concert Event" in my home for the first viewing, and it was attended by long-time fans (such as myself) and people who had never heard of him. Everyone's jaws dropped from start to finish. The sound is great, and the on-stage performances are enthralling. The video isn't the best, though it is very good on TBII, less so on TBIII.

By the way, many (though NOT all) DVD players can have their regional coding eliminated by the user - just Google your player's make and model number, followed by "region free", to see if you can find instructions - usually by using your remote control keypad.

A friend had sent me a copy of this work on videotape back in the early 90s and I have been looking for it on DVD ever since. This is some of Mike Oldfield's finest work captured the way he likes it - live and on stage. The only drawback to this recording is that it is only presented with Region 2 DVD coding. (Thank Goodness for Region-free software patches!) Apparently his producers seem to think Mike is only popular in Europe. Just be warned that this DVD is encoded to only play in either Region 2 or region-free DVD players. It is well worth the effort for us Mike Oldfield fans!

Two of his best concerts ever. While Tubular Bells II is great, Tubular Bells III is out of this world. I would have given anything to be out in that audience, rain or no rain. The only downside to this DVD is that is region coded for Europe, so I can only play it on my laptop; unless I want to go out and buy a non-region coded player. I looked for a long time, trying to find one coded for the US, but this product was never coded for the US region.

Being that Mike Oldfield concerts are a rarity in Australia, I'm glad that I can get a chance to see two of my favourite albums played "live"' right in the comfort of my home. I only have one other 2 sided DVD in my collection so it's a bit odd to think this is still done.
