* GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion: ''Tubular Bells 2003'' which is rerecorded with all the recording, mastering, and editing equipment that didn't exist in 1973. Most bits are more or less the same, but there are some significant differences.

** KuleshovEffect: Those people who saw ''The Exorcist'' before listening to the album found it far more intense and scary than it really was -- and the [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment sudden screaming of Oldfield during "Piltdown Man"]] was actually terrifying, ramping up the tension til it was released by the MoodWhiplash of "The Sailor's Hornpipe".

* CreditsGag: ''Tubular Bells'' has a caption reading "This stereo record cannot be played on old tin boxes no matter what they are fitted with. If you are in possession of such equipment please hand it into the nearest police station." This is a parody of labels advising listeners that stereo [=LPs=] may be played on mono equipment given suitable cartridges are used.
** The gag is preserved on ''Tubular Bells 2003'', where it reads "This stereo record ''still'' cannot be played on old tin boxes no matter what they are fitted with."

''Tubular Bells'' was released in 1973, and its success spawned the recording of ''The Orchestral Tubular Bells'' in 1974, but it was not until much later that Oldfield returned to his first album in force, releasing ''Tubular Bells II'' in 1992, ''Tubular Bells III'' in 1998, ''The Millennium Bell'' in 1999, ''Tubular Bells 2003'', and ''Tubular Beats'' in 2013.

* {{Improv}}: That epic acoustic bit right before "The Sailor's Hornpipe" on the original? Mike wrote the bassline and the basic direction he wanted it to go in, and bam.

* GloryDays: Oldfield released his greatest hit within his debut album. While he has released several other respectable hits, none has really matched it in terms of critical success or musical influence. He has repeatedly re-recorded that song over the years.
