Released in late 1978, the double album, Incantations, was Mike Oldfield’s fourth full-length release. An epic four-part suite, it looked to sources as varied as native American music, religious incanation, poetry by Ben Jonson and Longfellow and classical for its inspiration and created a piece of music that is unique and much-loved in Mike Oldfield’s canon.
Previously only available as a limited edition of 500 on vinyl to celebrate the re-release of Incantations in 2011, this long unavailable and highly sought-after capture of Mike Oldfield’s 2011 mix of the album is being made available again for RSD 2021.
Released with the full cooperation of Oldfield, the album features the artwork from the reissue, and is presented in pristine, ultra clear180gm vinyl, transferred at Abbey Road.
