Mike Oldfield on YouTube

Yep, you guessed it. I have nothing much to say tonight, so its time for another YouTube post. First of all we have the video for "Shadow On The Wall" with Roger Chapman on vocals. I get the impression Oldfield spent more time deciding what guitars to bring along to the video shoot than on the rather generic video itself, as he dragged along an early '60s Strat, an Ovation Adamas acoustic, his '57 Gibson Les Paul TV, early '60s Gibson SG Junior and what looks to be a Roland G808 bass which was used with the Roland GR33B bass guitar synth. Next up is the video for "Five Miles Out," the title cut of the album of the same name. The song is based on a rather harrowing encounter Oldfield had with bad weather while flying his Beechcraft 18.
