4 stars Great live recording that faithfully delivers the power of Steve Hillage during his Post Gong peak. The record could be a slightly better pressing but I would certainly get the cd. Do a bong crank it up and you'll be there at the front of the audience enjoying one of rocks true originals. I was lucky enough to see Steve Hillage a few times around this period and he always delivered great great set. The best moment of which there are many is the salmon song which explodes like no other Hillage number right from bar 16. The only dull moment on the record is 1988 Activator and its true to say the studio material is not of the very high standard of the rest of the work presented here. Steve Hillage was ardently a live performer and so its no surprise that this LP rocks its soaks off. A must for all Hillage and gong fans and well worth investing in for the vast majority of prog fans. Strictly speaking not prog but acid rock but really who gives a dam when it great its great what ever the label you attach to it. Only the studio material lets this Dbl lp set down otherwise it diserves a five.
