But my heart belongs to instrumental music of a certain progressive tilt. I'm a huge fan of OZRIC TENTACLES, ORBITAL, THE ORB and other modern keepers of the faith (and I love my a fair share of world, electronica, and "new age" music too).
Anyway, I should get to the point... Out of all the music I have bought in my life time FISH RISING by STEVE HILLAGE is my favorite hands down. When it first came out I thought it was something special and time has done nothing to diminish my view of it. I know I wore out my first couple of imported LP's back in the 70's and I now probably have 6 or 7 vinyl copies and another 2 or 3 copies on CD.
FISH RISING was 20 years ahead of it's time when it first came out and it sounds as fresh today as it did then. Hillage's later solo albums are great also and I do enjoy his current SYSTEM 7 work but for me FISH RISING will always be his masterpiece.
If you have not heard this album and you love great space/jazz/rock/electronic music..... this is a MUST HAVE addition to your collection.
This is Hillage's first real solo album, but the influence of his couple of years in Gong are quite audible. Read more
