I quote from an interview done on the 16.10.1998:
"- It turns out that Mike's sister had been a fan of Cado Belle, and that's how we came in contact. Already on the first night he asked me if I wanted to tour with him.
Thus started a five year, and very stormy, cooperation with Mike Oldfield, that really put Maggie Reilly in the spotlight. Today, Maggie Reilly's voice becomes ice cold when she talks about Oldfield. So ice cold in fact, that her manager has to intervene during her strongest rants.
- Mike had a huge ego. He never appreciated my efforts. Remember, I gave him his first hit single, not the other way around. But he never once gave me credit for my work. On the soundtrack to the 'Killing Fields' he even sampled my voice without my permission. However, she also points out that he also could be very pleasant."
The interview was done when she was promoting her previous compilation, which also included the same three Oldfield tracks.
