Another for Mike Oldfield fans

This time, it's the man himself. He has been remixing his albums and releasing them with extra tracks and other bits, and as part of the process, he released this short mix of part of one of his classic songs: 'The Lake', from 1984's Discovery album.
One of the memories I have from that time is listening to this track while sitting by an amazing lake in the fjords of Norway as a student.
This mix reveals extra layers of beauty which aren't obvious in the final piece, which is a little full of Fairlight...
