Two CDs. Some gigs are simply meant to be out there - even if they take decades to actually make it into our hands. This is, without doubt, one of those concerts; recorded at the Philips Halle, Dusselsdorf on the 28th March 1979 during the Live Herald Tour. Released following the AIM-nominated deluxe box set from Hillage, 'Searching For The Spark', this 'Dusselsdorf' double CD showcases the Steve Hillage Band's prowess with excellent sound quality - a quality so high that you'll forget that it's a live recording until the applause. This is a band at the height of it's powers, with Steve in great voice throughout & most obviously utterly enjoying themselves. The vibe is completely infectious & doesn't let up throughout the entire gig. Featuring Steve's own adventurous compositions & covers of Beatles & Donovan classics, all are approached with a joie-de-vivre & high sensibility. The trademark heady combination of vibrant psychedelic rock interwoven with an irresistible full-blooded groove, interspersed with the smoothest of deep-space synth/guitar trips gathers all before it in a tsunami of uplifting music. With the benefit of hindsight, Steve's musical trajectory from the creative space riffs of Gong to the trance & techno of System 7 is made instantly clear.
