Description

MADFISH PRESENTS STEVE HILLAGE'S PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED LEGENDARY GLASTONBURY 1979 PERFORMANCE. On Friday 21st June 1979, the Steve Hillage Band performed a headline set of soaring psychedelic guitar riffs of cosmic aspirations. The summer solstice night was a pivotal point in Steve Hillage's musical journey & this recording, provided from Steve's personal archives, will cement the performance as historic.

Prior to the festival, Steve & the band spent two weeks rehearsing in a barn at Worthy Farm, site of the Glastonbury Festival. They crafted a set fitting & psychedelically uplifting enough to truly celebrate the longest day of Summer at such an auspicious location. Steve was an integral member of the Glasto team alongside Michael Eavis, Pyramid' Bill Harkin & Turbosound/Funktion One's Tony Andrews. Their work focalised the 1979 Fayre, helping the rebirth of the first of the modern Glastonbury Festivals. After spending the 80's in music production, Steve & his partner Miquette Giraudy returned to recording & live performance in the 90's with the dance-oriented System 7 & was fundamental in the introduction of the Dance Stage to Glastonbury in 1995.

Presented on CD in deluxe media book with 24-page booklet and LP w/ Gatefold sleeve.
