AllMusic Review by

The Sallyangie's Children of the Sun album has its charm, but it wouldn't be nearly as interesting to collectors as it is had it not marked the first appearance on record of Mike Oldfield and Sally Oldfield. Even by the standards of the late '60s, it's fey, naïve British folk with touches of pop in Ray Warleigh's flute, Terry Cox's percussion, and David Palmer's arrangements. A fairy tale ambience suffused Mike and Sally's original songs, on which Sally Oldfield's high, trilling vocals overshadow brother Mike's guitar playing and less-prominent singing.
