    I bought it just for the sake of completion. All the extended versions should have been on disc 3. Froggy Went A-Courting is unfortunately not here and the dire Don Alphonso is! The Heaven’s Open boo boo is a pity. Still nice to have Pictures In The Dark, Shine and Legend on CD. There’s another compilation from 2001 which is UK and Scandinavia and I think that the only Oldfield CD I don’t own!

      So excited that my favorite 12" version of Heaven's Open finally appears on Mike's best-of album.
      So disappointed that the version is again only album version.
      Who could have done sich mistake?

        Even though it was released in 2006 it's probably still the best Oldfield Anthology to date.
