This duo, formed in 1968, featured Mike Oldfield (Michael Gordon Oldfield, 15 May 1953, Reading, Berkshire, England; guitar/vocals) and his sister Sally Oldfield (b. August 1950, Dublin, Ireland; vocals). Given the era in which it was recorded, there are definite shades of the Incredible String Band about the Children Of The Sun. Other musicians featured on the album were Terry Cox (drums), Ray Warleigh (flute) and John Collins (guitar). Sallyangie was a short-lived affair with Mike destined to progress further, and Sally later to have moderate chart success in her own right.
