Portsmouth (2:01)

Cover of Elements (Mike Oldfield 1973-1991)

From Elements (Mike Oldfield 1973-1991) and 38 other releases

Single released by musician Mike Oldfield in 1976.
In an attempt to repeat the success of his previous year’s Christmas hit, In Dulci Jubilo, Mike recorded another traditional folk melody dating from 1701 (first known publication), again using Leslie Penning on recorders. The single was just as successful as its predecessor, charting at number 3 in the UK, and became his first non-album single to be issued in the USA. It also charted at number 19 in Ireland.

Mike Oldfield plays acoustic guitar, accordion, mandolin, ARP string synthesiser, tambourine, kettle drum and bodhran (Irish drum), and both Oldfield and Penning are credited with “feet”.
