I wouldn’t be waiting around for the super deluxe edition, Oldfield singing ‘Sailing’ sounds more like comedy rather then musical inspiration. The instrumental versions on the deluxe edition are fantastic .. highly recommended to get that if your an MO fan, all the instrumental stuff your waiting for is all there. It turns it into a pop album and the pure music side as well. The title track with and without lyrics is awesome.
Rock on.

There will be a deluxe version of this album according to Mike’s own official facebook group. It will feature his original demos of the songs featuring his own playing and singing. The album features session musicians. I think Mike only plays guitars on the album, although the songs are written by him of course. I’m waiting for the deluxe version to be listed on amazon, hopefully soon!
