Tubular Bells is written and mostly performed by Mike Oldfield, the first of a "series" of albums with almost the same titles.
It was the debut album for Oldfield as well as the first album to be released by Virgin Records. The opening theme, used in The Exorcist, gained the record considerable publicity and is how most people have probably first heard the work.

Tubular Bells stayed in the British charts for over five years, reaching the number 1 spot after more than a year and taking there for one week the place of his second album, Hergest Ridge, thereby becoming one of only three artists in the UK to knock himself off the first spot. It sold more than two million copies in the UK alone and according to some reports 15 to 17 million copies worldwide. The album went gold in the USA and Mike Oldfield received a Grammy Award for the best Instrumental Composition in 1975.

Ommadawn is a record album written and mostly performed by Mike Oldfield. It is his third album.

As with Hergest Ridge and Tubular Bells, Ommadawn is another two-movement work. Here Oldfield sought out the ancient Celtic influence on English music and composed for traditional instruments such as Uilleann pipes. He also involved musicians noted for their work in folk music including Clodagh Simmonds and Paddy Moloney. He combined this with heavy African influences, mainly by the use of the drummers of Jabula. This makes Ommadawn one of the first successful world music albums in Europe.
