'The Best Of Mike Oldfield: 1992-2003' is a new two-disc collection highlights key moments during an exciting period in Oldfield's illustrious career and uncovers more than a dozen rarities, including b-sides and remixes!

Mike Oldfield is one of the most influential figures in popular music, and his 11-year, eight-album tenure at Warner Bros. Records covers some of his most exciting and experimental work, including several sequels to his Grammy-winning 1973 masterwork 'Tubular Bells.'

Among the standout tracks on the opening disc are "Man In The Rain," "Sunlight Shining Through The Cloud" and "The Sailor's Hornpipe 2003." Several songs included here are non-album versions, like Far Above The Clouds (Timewriter's Radio Mix) and Women Of Ireland (Lurker's edit), as well as the radio edit for Thou Art In Heaven.

The second disc delves deep into Oldfield's catalogue to come up with rare versions of classic tracks, including remixes of "To Be Free" by Soultronik and "Let There Be" Light by BT.

In the late 1980s, Oldfield became known as the godfather of ambient house music, which led The Orb—one of the genre's leading artists—to pay tribute to him with the epic Orbular Bells mix of Sentinel included here.

In addition to those remixes, the collection also features a number of b-sides, like Silent Night, The Spectral Army and Mike's Reel.
