me too, thanks for letting us know. He really deserves to get some recognition here.

I remember how, at about this time last year, I was so eagerly waiting to hear the new album. And now it is a part of my life forever and I am so glad for that. A lot can happen in a year and leave you feeling changed, moved, on a different level, looking at everything in a different way, even a little more confused with life maybe  - and so it's always good to know that there is this solid rock you can always turn to. It will never go away. And by that, I mean the music.

Yep, added my vote.

I've had a recent renaissance with Music of the Spheres. I'd been listening to a lot of classical music beforehand. Maybe that changed by perspective on it, I appreciate it so much more now than when it came out. Like most of Oldfield's work it's a grower.

Just voted. I so hope he wins - it's a brilliant album and is one of his very best IMO.

I submitted my vote for MOTS. But the USA was not on the list of countries. So I left it at United Kingdom. Will that work? Is the USA part of the United Kingdom? We should be. Oh well, I voted for Mike.

So did my friggin' vote for Mike count or not as a goddamn yankee bastard? I simply want Mike to win. BTW: There was a war here in 1860 to 1865. I think some bearded dude Lincoln? was the president. I was just a kid at the time. The slave-keepin' rednecks of the south were called yankees and the "Good Guys" of the north were called uh.....Union soldiers, I guess. All these years later I've been an outcast socially in Texas because I do not speak with a southern accent. In the past I've almost gotten my ass beaten up for playing MO in places like honky tonks. I only want to know if my frigging vote counts. God knows I worked for it.

Yeah, I reckon so Scatterplot, can't see why not.

If we all vote I reckon Mike's in with a damn good chance :)

Is there anyone interested on creating a banner for us to use everywhere on the web to promote our campaign "Vote for Mike Oldfield - Music of the Spheres @ Classical BRIT Awards 2009!"?

That would help to spread the word!

Yes a banner would be a cool idea.And damn right Mike should win.Maybe then people will start listening and maybe just maybe Virgin will sit up and listen and do a proper job on the reissues programme and issue the rare stuff we all want.
