Further update 19th February: It's now available again! A video for the studio version of the track is also available on the VEVO site, though viewers in some countries will be redirected to the acoustic performance video instead.

This is the album version and it's very good. After Sailing I'm more than surprised.

All the links to the album version have been deleted from Mike Oldfield Personal and Mike Oldfield on Record Facebook groups. Why they do this is beyond me. If they want to sell the album, they should release the album version first. I think it's obvious that a great many fans will absolutely hate hate hate an ex tempore version with only vocals and strumming, which can already be seen in the comments on Tubular.net's Facebook page.

And they're using geoblocking again! The acoustic version can't be viewed in some countries, and while I can watch that, I can't see the album version.

My advice to the record company is: when Oldfield, then musical instruments. A song is ok, but don't forget the instruments. Even if it's the best song in the world, don't forget the instruments. And don't block it in any country, you fools!

I managed to hear it probably the very moment they put it on youtube (some synchronicity, I'd say :) ) and was too confused by it to download mp4 unfortunately because now it is gone...It is really great, I was really impressed by Luke's singing....and was taken by the energy flowing both ways between Mike and Luke, it was so long time ago when this happened last time for Mike....Great!

Both versions no longer available and very likely the one available again on the 21st via VEVO and DailyMotion will be the unplugged acoustic version ... Great but not the best ..... Very hard not being able to listen to the album version for the next two weeks .... It's so so good ! :)

Well, it seems the video is public once again.

And if you want to listen to the album version, just go to vevo.com and search "Mike Oldfield - Man on the Rocks". Despite it says "acoustic version", it's a different video with the album version. Magic! AND it's the OFFICIAL channel, of course.

Seriously, suppose you'd prefer an album of innocent,saved by the bell.times move on and record company's don't take kindly to music stuck in the 80s.

I'm guessing that different countries have different contracts - Mike's Universal/Virgin deal is complicated and they also sell "exclusives" to various people - like the Telegraph in the UK.

So the Vevo people are putting up various versions - which I get.

What is NOT good is that Caroline isn't told until after the event, and then has to do teh record companies dirty work in deleting posts that help to violate those restrictions.

much easier to say - " For X territory see this link, for y territory, use this" - because us fans would never share another dodgy link to each other, would we
;)

They should stop using territorial restrictions on the internet. Nowadays it is completely meaningless. You can go around it anyway.

I really like the MOTR track a lot! Especially the second part, when the music comes massive and dynamic.
I'am very impressed about the choirs, expanded multiple guitars solo and very strong and nice voice provided by Luke.
It's sound really amazing and after rather poor Sailing track, i think it can be a solid album over all :)

Innocent; Saved by a Bell? Eeeeew. They make me cringe too; and I think this does sound stuck in the 80's. ;)
