Product Description

LP condition. Slight scratch on TK 1, Side 1, otherwise very good. Cover label mark otherwise excellent. Complete with original inner picture sleeve featuring some of the participating musicians.

Ommadawn is the third record album by Mike Oldfield, released in 1975 on Virgin Records. It peaked at No. 4 on the UK Albums Chart. As with Hergest Ridge and Tubular Bells, Ommadawn is another two-movement work. Oldfield sought out the ancient Celtic influence on English music and composed for traditional instruments such as uilleann pipes on this original LP version. Oldfield recorded each layer of sound and played the bulk of the instruments throughout Ommadawn, with the exception of a few musicians noted for their work in folk music: Clodagh Simond, Bridget St John, Paddy Moloney and the heavy African drumming of Jabula.
