Background: Released in 1982, Five Miles Out was the seventh album by Mike Oldfield.
The album reached #7 on the UK album chart and #164 on the U.S. chart. The song “Family Man” later became a hit for Daryl Hall and John Oates.
Mike Oldfield was back into the extended composition game with Five Miles Out, continuing the “Taurus” series with the mammoth “Taurus II,” an entertaining enough romp with references to Irish music, brass bands and Oldfield’s beloved Morris. The true standout, though, was the title track, a paean to flying in bad weather that could easily double for Oldfield’s feelings about the sort of monumental critical drubbing he was accustomed to receiving. “Family Man” became a huge worldwide hit for Hall & Oates.
