It seems you can buy "The Danish Collection" on-line from: www.cdskiven.dk (Search under "Oldfield". The web-site can also be viewed in English. I checked and they can send CDs to any European country for an additional DKr 30. The CD costs DKr 129,95 / EUR 17,42. Hope this helps! biggrin

The only interest of this compilation is 'Pictures In The Dark' (at last) on CD !
That's all !

Virgin Denmark needs to make money - so why not. The compilation is a bit to focused on Killing Fields - a track from the Platinum/QE2 era would have made better choices (Sheba, Airborne or say Punkadiddle) but if it turns a couple of Danes on to Oldfield`s magic music.

And what an awful title - sounds like Cliff Richard....

Well... Even though Norway isn't a member of the EU (Too bad...), we are members of the European Economic Community (EEC). So it should not be a problem to buy it!

Well.... mad
This company is the worst ever!!! I want to turn them in to the court of human rights in Haag!
I think they should read the EEC agreement. And they would see that Norway is to be counted as a EU member when it comes to economic matters! (Such as trade.)

Try writing to their customer services department (kundeservice@cdskiven.dk). Maybe they will send to Norway since you are very close to Denmark. Lykke til! (I think that's how you write Good Luck in Norwegian!) biggrin

Oldfield.dk is not in the links section because it was not submitted. (It might have been there before and then removed after the webmaster insulted me.)

What did happen, Olivier?

I don't remember the details, and it's not interesting anyway. Ask me privately if you want. It's off-topic... -- Olivier

If I'm not wrong, France got its compilation, Episodes, a few years ago. Were there any other national compilations?

Here is some information about how to buy the CD from cdskiven.dk if you live in Norway:
Norge er jo ikke med i EU, så vi skal frætrække dansk moms, når vi sender til Norge, dette kan vores butik ikke klare på nuværende tidspunkt.

Du er velkommen til at bestille, og så vælge Sverige som land og skrive i bemærkninger, at du kommer fra Norge. Du kommer dog til at betale dansk moms.


So the problem is solved.

By the way: Lykke til is right. Very nice.

Re: about National Compilations

I checked in "R-Files"* :

-> Airborn for USA+Canada ?
-> Impression for UK ?
-> MO's Wonderland for NL ?
-> Music Wonderland for NL+D ?

-> A Virgin Compilation : i think it was only available in USA, am i wrong ?
USA: PRCD 2113 silver CD, blue printing

And these :

CD Los Grandes Temas De Mike Oldfield
ES: V 8401182 ltd. Ed. 120,-
(1995 release of Elements)
=> Maybe Element en español ?

CD The Best
===========
BLG: EP 3005 red-silver CD Counterfeit 40,-
BLG: EP 3005 grey-silver CD Counterfeit 40,-

Conterfeit, but for Belgique uniquement wink

CD Polnaja Diskographija (CD-ROM)
========================
BLG: - red-silver CD 45,- *
(made for the Russian market, matrix number EEC 184)

And
CD Best 99 - The Earth Calling
==============================
RUS: Counterfeit 40,-


But I'm sure there are a lot of "National bundle", as Discovery+OTB in the same package...
Cheers

Hi,

Episodes was a pretty nice compilation, with excerpts from HR, Ommadawn, Incantations, Platinum and QE2 (memory only, tbc) : after been "stuck" during a few years inside TBI (thinking it was a unique piece of music coming directly from Mars), it's thanks to that one that I opened to MO's larger world. I still remember how it blew my head off. I then knew there were several other pieces of music coming from Mars :-D

I bought it during the first half of the 80's if I remember well ? I still have the K7 (souvenir...)

I was pretty young + there was no Internet at that time ;-) Just think I may have missed that compilation, and still be listening to TBI !! That's why we should not be to hard on compilations, it helps more people to get to know our (and any other) hero.

B-)

i think its cool that almost all other MO compilations refuse to even to a short extract of Hergest ridge, but this one does all of part 1. the other compilations dont even put in the thunderstorm bit in part 2, thats the best bit!

The same 2cds compilation has been released in Spain by Virgin with the title Mike Oldfield Collection so it´s nothing to do with national compilations, it,s only another compilation for making money easily.
