    Tubular Bells is the debut album by British musician Mike Oldfield, released on May 25, 1973. The album was produced by Tom Newman and Simon Heyworth and was recorded in various studios, including The Manor Studio, Oxfordshire, and AIR Studios, London.

    Tubular Bells is known for its instrumental and progressive rock style and its use of multiple instruments played by Oldfield himself. The album's two-part composition features a wide range of sounds, from acoustic guitar and piano to synthesizers and various percussion instruments. 

    Upon its release, Tubular Bells received critical acclaim and was a commercial success, reaching No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart and staying there for 250 weeks. It also reached No. 3 on the US Billboard 200 chart and stayed on the chart for 247 weeks, becoming one of the longest-running albums in the chart's history.

    In addition to its commercial success, Tubular Bells has also been recognized for its cultural impact. The album's opening theme was used as the theme for the horror film The Exorcist, which brought the album to a wider audience and helped it become a classic of the progressive rock genre.
