Hillage, Steve - Motivation Radio Motivation Radio
Pop New - LP SD 19144 Atlantic
Sealed 1977 Original. “Those In Tune With Being Transported Through Music Will Want To Station Themselves Near The Speakers For Motivation Radio. Call It The "Light Side Of The Moon," This Album Draws The Listener Into Its Own Astral Plane With A Glossy And Gauzy Sound Similar To Pink Floyd Without The Darkness, Or Alan Parsons Project Without The Dorkiness. The New Age/Space Ideology Isn't Far Removed From Gong's Original Alternate Reality (Remember The Octave Doctors?), Spelled Out Best During The Album's True Point Of Transmigration, "Saucer Surfing." Hillage's Guitar Work Is Typically Transcendent, Giraudy's Keyboards A Vital Component (Note The Doctor Who-Isms Of "Searching For The Spark"), And Joe Blocker's Drums A Frequent Breath Of Change. “ Dave Connolly, All Music.... more details

Hillage, Steve - Fish Rising Fish Rising
Pop Used - LP V 2031 Virgin
Rare 1975 Twin Virgins Label Original With The Lyric Insert. LP Appears Unplayed. “After Departing Gong In 1975, Steve Hillage Followed The Same Route As Everyone Else, By Making A Solo Album. He Enlisted Some Gong Colleagues — Bassist Mike Howlett, Saxophonist Didier Malherbe, And Drummer Pierre Moerlen — And Augmented Them With Others From His Canterbury Past, Keyboard Player Dave Stewart (The Two Had Played Together At The Beginning Of The Decade) And Henry Cow's Lindsay Cooper. The Result, Apart From Revealing A Slightly Unhealthy Obsession With Fish (At Least A Change From Gong's Pothead Pixies) Is A Canterbury Musical Delight, Even If The Lyrics Are Chock-Full Of Hippie-Dippy Sentiment. There Are Plenty Of Complex Time Changes, Easily And Smoothly Handled By The Musicians, And While Hillage Doesn't Contribute As Many Solos As Admirers Of His Style Might Wish, He Does Use Layers Of Guitar To Create Some Wonderful Textures And Harmonies. This Is, In Fact, A Very Sophisticated Record, With Interesting Arrangements And Some Innovative Production — A Harbinger Of Hillage's Future Career Behind The Boards. On The Few Occasions He Does Unleash The Fretwork, It's Quite Glorious, With His Trademark Echo Letting The Notes Trail Like A Comet's Tail. He Doesn't Need To Prove He's The Fast Gun In Town, Simply One With Plenty Of Invention. The Real Emphasis Is On Band Arrangements And Those Multi-Part Compositions That Were An Indelible Part Of The Prog '70s (As In The Pretentiously Titled "Solar Musick Suite"). However, Pomposity Is Carefully Avoided, And The Musicians Bring Enough Of Their Own Personalities To The Party, Especially Malherbe. As A Solo Debut It's A Success, Taking The Qualities Of Hillage's Previous Gigs On Board, But Making The Final Product His Own. It Might Be Fishy, But It Certainly Doesn't Stink.” – Chris Nickson, All Music Guide.... more details

Hillage, Steve - L L
Prog Used - LP SD 18205 Atlantic
1976 Original Featuring Don Cherry. Large Promo Sticker On The Cover. Clean Cut Out Hole. Jacket Shows Slight Signs Of Wear. LP Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “After A Stint With Gong As Their Trippy, Hippy, New Agey Guitar Guru Of Cosmically And Extremely Raga-Esque Trance Rock And Improv Heaven, Steve Hillage Went Solo. He Branched Out To Carry His Own Version Of The Gong Gospel Of Personal Freedom Via His Special Blend Of Cosmic Brotherhood, Eastern Religion, New Age, Pyramids, Ley Lines, Crystals, And Some Ferocious Jazz Fusion And Progressive Rock Guitar Blended With Space Rock Synths. Hillage Reinterprets Some Well-Known Tunes By Other Artists Like Donovan And George Harrison Here As Well As Penning Some Of His More Memorable Sonic Treats. His Awesome Riffing And Speedy Solos On His Fender Strat Rival Those Of Hendrix And Frank Marino But Go Further Compositionally Via Exotic Scales From Other Cultures. Add In Todd Rundgren's Engineering And Production Genius, His Utopians Guesting, And Several Others Like Don Cherry On Brass And Tibetan Trumpet Along With A 15th Century Hurdy Gurdy And You Have A Wild Romp Into Eclectic Rock. The 12-Minute-Long "Lunar Musick Suite" Is The Pinnacle Moment Of The Release And "Om Nama Shivaya" Comes In A Close Second For Hillage's Most Blissed-Out Trance Rock. Both Gong And Hillage's Solo Career Have Brought Such Superb Musical Echoes And Legends Such As Veteran Space Rockers, The Ozric Tentacles.” John W. Patterson, AMG.... more details
