Steve Hillage : Pentagramaspinn

I was very glad to find that some good soul ripped & shared this rare item. This is an outtake from Fish Rising, Hillage's first solo album from '75 and was originaly included in the vinyl-only Virgin Records double compilation V. Never re-released in any form. Backing provided by You era Gong's rhythm section plus Hillage's old pal Dave Stewart on keys. This was always one of my personal favourite songs. Classic Canterbury sound, astral guitar. Coupled here with Shimmer, another rare B-side only co-written with Tim Blake, to make a nice virtual single.
Note: Both tracks have since been included as bonus tracks on the 2007 expanded remasters of Fish Rising and L respectively. Shimmer is also in the anthology Lights In The Sky.
