Great new edition, especially the live cuts,
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: QE2 (Deluxe Edition) (Audio CD)
However I didn't like the reworking of "Sheba" all that much. Doesn't matter, the live concerts included with all the Deluxe editions are real chestnuts as they display Mike Oldfield in his prime. And did you know not only he had "Titanic" as a working title for the album (but he dropped it as he didn't want it as a bad omen), but the live recording "Polka" is the exactly the Irish folk song the steerage band plays in James Cameron's "Titanic" movie - 17 years before.
I sometimes enjoy playing "QE2/QE2 Finale" while running the "Titanic underway" scenes from "Titanic-Birth of a Legend" or from James Cameron's film without their original sound. Very fitting.
I also like much the reproduced artwork from the original LP (didn't like that much the new albu,m artwork on "Hergest Ridge" however). On the jewel-box editios it was always quite shoddy.
