Product Description

Product Description

The one time member of Gong and System 7, Steve Hillage released 7 studio and one live album in his tenure with Virgin Records from 1975 to 1982. He played an integral part in Gong's rise to prominence and after joining in 1972, he pursed other music interests outside the band. These 8 albums proved him to be as prolific as he was out-there. A string of top 40 albums including the top 10 album "L" cemented Hillage's place at the heart of the acid generation and to this day he is still making music be it as producer, re-mixer or artist. The digitally remastered album boasts a number of bonus tracks from the Hillage's personal tape archives. The booklet liner notes were penned by prog expert Mark Powell and include photos and memorabilia also from the Hillage archives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hillage at his BEST...but get the LP March 21 2002
Format:Audio CD
First of all, having said that this is Hillage's best album, let me say that I am TOTALLY disappointed with this particular CD release. The mastering is lousy; as another reviewer mentioned, it's distorted in places. THE ORIGINAL LP SOUNDS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THIS CD. Do yourself a favor -- seek out the LP ... A good, clean vinyl copy blows away this CD. Let's hope that someone gets the original master tapes and does this release justice with a polished re-master (and do I hear BONUS TRACKS???). *NOTE* for some reason, the CD release of "L", even though it's from the same label, seems not to have suffered the fate of "MOTIVATION RADIO". Still, it could use a good remaster as well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Uphillage June 3 2002
Format:Audio CD
Actually, Steve's music is usually a great pleasure to listen to. But Motivation Radio is easily his weakest album, probably because at the time (1976-77) Virgin was grooming our new age activator to be the next Jesus Christ Superstar. For this album at least, Steve went along with the charade. There are a few good moments here ("Light in the Sky" and "Searching for the Spark" are the best cuts), but you're much better off with Fish Rising, L, Green, or just about anything else by Steve.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not essential Sept. 1 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Steve's third solo album is a mixed bag. Each song alternates between light pop melodies, atmospheric synths and aggressive guitar rave-ups and there is no cohesion here. Nevertheless, there is some good material, especially the pop-oriented tunes "Hello dawn" and "Wait one moment". But the rest of the album sounds uneven and distorted. Casual fans would do better with purchasing the funky "Open", the dreamy "Green" or his later-era work with System 7.
