Steve Hillage Remastered

Taken from www.planetgong.co.uk

Steve's solo albums from the 70's are scheduled for release in remastered, bonus-tracked and expanded booklet form this Autumn. They are to be released in chronological order, 4 in September and 4 in October. And the best news is that it's all being done with his blessing and hands-on input. As soon as I have any info on the bonus tracks I will let you know.”

This is most welcome news indeed. Hillage was one of the perennial guitarists of the 70’s, initially as part of Gong but then through a series of successful solo albums. The first “Fish Rising” included members of Gong, Hatfield and the North and other Canterbury styled outfits. His second “L” was produced by Todd Rundgren and really broke Hillage into the mainstream. His style became more fluid and funky which was represented on albums like “Motivation Radio” and “Green”. These releases will be most welcome and and it is good seeing Hillage involved in this music again, something he has shunned for many years.
