Sallyangie (also The Sallyangie ) was a British folk duo consisting of Sally Oldfield and her brother Mike . The duo formed in 1967 when Mike Oldfield was 14 years old. He then moved to Barefeet and in 1971 he played with Kevin Ayers in his group The Whole World. The only album of the duo in 1969 under the title Children of the Sun published. In the same year, the duo separated because of artistic differences, which are also reflected in the very different styles of their later successful solo careers.
The publication formed the basis for the continued success of both solo artists. It reflects the personality of the two artists. In addition to the LP, two singles were released with songs that were not on the music album . Both are coveted as rarities.
The album Children of the Sun experienced a renaissance in 2002 as a double CD in a remastered version on the record label Sanctuary. In addition, there were some previously unreleased bonus tracks by Mike and Sally Oldfield.
