I have been listening to this album a few times on my car CD player lately,i had'nt listen to it for a couple of years,and on re-listening i noticed a few things,firstly the track order,it seems weird to me that an album about Mike Oldfield would start with not 1,but 2 cover versions,i can understand ARRIVAL because of the title it is a good track to start an album with,even that both cover versions are very good,it would have been a better idea i feel to have started with one of Mike's own compositions.
Secondly,i am interested in where some of the track names come from,why is CUCKOO SONG so called?,also,GUILTY,JUNGLE GARDENIA and WALDBERG(THE PEAK)?.
And have any of these smaller instrumentals been played live?
