Arrival...

Hey guys, I found this infant community via seeing indigofae at progrock, and didn't hesitate to join and see if we can't get it off the ground :) I'm a 24 year old Scotsman, and Oldfield was my first musical love from a young age. Today my sensibility has evolved but I can only appreciate Oldfield even more, and I consider him not merely an icon, or a trailblazer, but a true genius of our time (leaving aside a few of those dubious 80s/90s albums!) I'm a musician myself because of Oldfield's influence and have been said to share a tiny bit of his style, if not an ounce of his talent :p

I look forward to talking about this man's work throughout the years. I have recently bought the Elements DVD, which was a real treat for fans, totally unexpected and full of rare videos... and the entirety of Tubular Bells (Part One) performed live!! This could be a good place to start, anyone else picked the DVD up?
