Background: Originally released in 1973, Hergest Ridge was the second album by Mike Oldfield. The album reached #1 on the UK charts and #87 in the U.S.
Released as another lengthy composition, Hergest Ridge was the album that followed Mike Oldfield’s momentous Tubular Bells release, with many of the same instrumental elements and methods employed throughout its two sections. Because of the time of its release, Hergest Ridge was overshadowed by the effects of Oldfield’s first album for Virgin, but even so he manages to invoke some interesting patches of music by using instruments like the glockenspiel, sleigh bells, the Lowrey organ, oboes, and a variety of mandolins and guitars to maintain the same type of diversity as Tubular Bells.
