Magical return at the big Family Gathering in Amsterdam

The SHB fly once more

If you were there I imagine that the high emotive atmosphere in the room during the Steve Hillage Band set at the Unconvention in 2006 will be a memory which will live with you forever, I know it will with me. After all we were taking part in the first live performance by the Steve Hillage Band since 1979. En masse every hair on the back of every neck stood up. Re-discover, re-member, re-live - or discover it all for the first time.

If that were not enough the 'bonus' tracks are all also rather super slices of sonic specialness as well.
