Release Date: 22 June 2009

2LP set in 180 gram heavy rainbow coloured vinyl - includes tracks not released on the CD version of the album. Talk to any connoisseur of 70s-era double live albums, and many will agree that Steve Hillage’s "Live Herald", recorded and released in 1977-78, rates among the finest jewels that the genre has to offer.

So it’s astonishing to discover that someone has spent the last 25 years sitting on tapes that knock that set into the dust, both in terms of on-stage excitement and aural enjoyment.

"Live At Deeply Vale Festival 1978" (Ozit, UK) transports the listener back to one of the last truly great festivals staged in the UK that decade, a weekend’s worth of music that fearlessly ranged across both the traditional rock range and the upcoming punk movement, before climaxing with a Hillage set that the guitarist himself reflects, “…(sounds) as exciting now as Live Herald was back then.” (Goldmine Magazine, USA.)

"A must-have for any and all fans of Hillage, Gong, Canterbury, Avant Garde and just good British psych in general." (**** Record Collector)
