Steve Hillage

Live Herald

Virgin CDVMR3502 (2007)

A big juicy live vibey present to everyone when it came out on LP - now even better …live 1979 double album, re-mastered and with a bonus track. Originally released as a double LP with three live sides and one studio side - all of which were recorded throughout 1977-78 - this album was distilled down to the purely live tracks when released on CD in 1990 because of lack of space. The 'Studio Herald' side was moved to 'Open', where it can still be found on the 2006 re-mastered version. The bonus track is a previously unreleased version of the 'Solar Musick Suite' from the Rainbow Theatre in 1977 - I don't know which particular date. Jewel-case, stickered with small promo label on the back. 16 page illustrated booklet with loads of input from Steve himself.
