I think these are the only commercially released live concerts on CD or DVD - you may know of others that are unavailable?  Which do you think offers the best combination of music and sound quality?

There's also the live Tubular Bells on Airborn, the US release of Platinum. Sounds like a more rehearsed version than on Exposed.

Not sure I can vote really, as each performance will have it's special moments, plus I have not heard all of the, but I would the Tubular Bells 2 and 3 live premier performances. I still love TB2 from Edinburgh Castle, and I was at the TB3 premier at Horse Guards Parade, so that is special too. But a real highlight for me is seeing Mike at the London Olympics and thinking most of the world is watching him, that was emotional for me, as his music means so much to me, just imagine if you told that shy, introverted 19 year old in 1973 that one day he would be in that position!!

It is a real highlight, however it is the least they could do for him, given his talent and the amount of his work. And it came quite late in his career. They should have honoured him in other ways and earlier.
On the other hand, we shouldn't take for granted that Mike would be playing at the London Olympics, that was a really nice surprise!!

Mike was honoured in the 80's with the Freedom of The City of London.
