Does side one on this version fade in, or does it start cold?

Mike Oldfield's second album, and widely considered to be less successful than Tubular Bells, nevertheless it is my favourite album of his. The music is more introspective and densely textured and layered, with a nod to minimalism (a concept and genre that Mike will return again and again in his work). The original pressing LP contains his original mix which is far superior to the Quad mix that he did for the Boxed set which is quite muddy.

His finest album in my humble opinion, but I must agree with the comments regarding the 2010 remix - it really does spoil the piece. Such a sensitive and moving composition does not lend itself to the rather heavy handed nature of the reworking. Stick with the 1974 or 1976 versions to hear it st it's best .

Hergest Ridge is different from any other album Mike did. Part one is superb as it gently whistles in and builds up very subtly. The Oboe solo is very beautiful and it's been compared to Vaughan Williams pastoral music. Side two is where it fails though. Unlike it's predecessor Tubular Bells which has two equally great parts, Hergest part two is good until the big fat, loud multilayered guitar and organ section, goes on and on and on and ruins the tranquility and beauty of the album as a whole. This is understandable as Mike suffered from anxiety during this time, lived in a reclusive fashion, and you can hear the anger breaking out of his music. I usually only listen to part one. Still there is no album like this. The 2010 mix by Mike is nonsense and the Deluxe Edition should have had the 1974 mix on disc one and the Boxed mix on disc two. I feel the 2010 mix highlights the percussive, jangling elements of the instrumentation and goes against what Hergest Ridge is all about. It's a relaxing, beautifully composed, melodic piece, until halfway through side two that is! I bought the 2010 LP when it was released (the new artwork looks great) as I always had the boxed mix on CD and I have Boxed itself on vinyl. I don't really like Back To Black, I think their vinyl is poor quality and I usually avoid it. I bought the Deluxe Edition CD recently and this is great apart from the 2010 mix!

When this album came out in 1974 I grabbed it immediately and to this day consider it Mike Oldfield's finest album. The only problem was: it was a USA copy and I went through at least 2 LP's in the day(and exchanged several at the store for warping and noise). Due to the petroleum crisis at the time, the USA pressings were terrible. Crackles abounded throughout. Skip to 2008. I bought the "Porky Cut", made in the UK and the disc mastered by the noted Porky Peckham. This album is so perfect it sounds like a CD! I urge anyone who wants this album in the "non-boxed" un-remixed original version to spend a little more and buy the UK version. In my opinion the 2010 remix by Mike did not improve this work, it made it worse. Get this one. I think it was only about $25 but well worth it! This is the only version to buy as far as I'm concerned. You won't find it on cassette, CD or any other format, so grab one in VG+ or better while you can!

Has your label "Austro Mechana" printed on it?
If not, I have a different version of this album.
Side A label is green, side B is red.

I don't have the number "88 134-610" anywhere on the sleeve or labels, and my copy comes without printed inner sleeve.
