Mike Oldfield - Amarok

Year: 1990
Country: UK
I recently took the one dollar gamble on this album mainly because of the list of instruments used to make this recording. I knew the name sounded familiar but Tubular Bells didn't pop into my head until I started listening. I've seen it listed as New Age but I'd call it Experimental. Click here to listen.
