News: Steve Hillage Releases 'Live At The Rainbow 1977' On CD

Steve Hillage releases 'Live At The Rainbow 1977' from his vaults.

Steve Hillage is considered one of the most idiosyncratic and instantly recognizable guitarists in the world. Associated with the Canterbury scene, he has worked in experimental domains since the late 1960s. Besides his critically acclaimed solo recordings, along with Prog/Psychedelic band Gong, Steve has been a member of the ensembles Khan and System 7. And now Gonzo MultiMedia has released Live At The Rainbow 1977 (2014) CD on June 23, 2014!

Says Steve, “I'm really happy to finally release this full live recording - it's amazing how sharp and fresh it still sounds today!”

Steve Hillage first came to prominence as a member of the multi-national rock band Gong. Steve appeared on successful albums such as Angels Egg (1973), You (1974) and his final album with the band Shamal (1976). Steve recorded his first solo album in 1975 entitled Fish Rising (1975). This album was recorded whilst still a member of Gong. Shortly after however, Steve and his partner Miquette Giraudy left Gong embarking on a career that continues to this day under the name System 7.

This album shows Steve playing a show at the Rainbow Theatre in London in 1977 featuring songs from the album Motivation Radio (1977), which was the follow up to L (1976), and an amazing American rhythm section. It contains glorious, life affirming music, which is as spiritual and uplifting now as it was when recorded nearly 40 years ago.
