Here's my current wish list of Oldfield-related rarities. Just thought I would share this here on the chance that someone might have any tips about where I can find any of these (or if they even exist).
(1) The Odyssey live, with David Bedford: I stupidly missed this CD release at the time it came out about 10 years ago, and have been kicking myself ever since learning of its existence. I would love to hear it, but it's never come up on youtube or anything, and copies now fetch around £80-£100 which is too expensive for me.
(2) The Odyssey live - video! This concert footage MUST exist somewhere, given that clips from it appear at the start of the Song of The White Horse TV documentary in 1978. Does anyone have any clue how or where this can be found?
(3) Reflection soundtrack 1977 - Ommadawn and Incantations demos and outtakes. I know some of these pieces (Ommadawn lost version, Incantations piano tune) have subsequently appeared on official releases, but there are so many good tunes in this film there must be more in the vault.
(4) Multitrack stems for Tubular Bells, Hergest Ridge and Ommadawn: We've had the multitrack stems for the first 14 minutes of Tubular Bells (for an online remixing competition a few years ago), and those were a total revelation to me. So I want them ALL! I would say Incantations as well but I know those original multitracks have disappeared.
(5) Tubular Bells live Queen Elizabeth Hall 1973 - video! Does such a thing exist? I would love to see it if it does.
