Mike Oldfield's Ommadawn at 45
He’s holding the cover to Tubular Bells in this picture, but many consider Ommadawn to be Mike Oldfield’s masterpiece. composer Mike Oldfield talks about Ommadawn, his two-sided epic from 1975. It’s partly an homage to his mother, who died during the recording, and her Irish roots. We travel to Ommadawn on its 45th anniversary with Mike Oldfield on Echoes.
