Venturing to other side of the world, Steve arrived in Los Angeles for the first time in January of 1977 to support ELO on their US tour. On January 27th and 31st a combined effort of 30,000 Los Angelenos were treated to the performance of a lifetime from Steve and his band. With many of attendees unfamiliar with Steve it was a whirlwind set that ignited the stage and could be argued stole the show from the legendary headliners. The LA Forum set starts with 'The Salmon Song', from Steve's first solo album 'Fish Rising' and from then on the material is entirely from his 1976 Top 10 UK album 'L'. All recordings are previously unreleased and were prepared personally from Steve's own archives. Accompanying his performance in Los Angeles also comes three added bonus tracks of live recordings taken from his encore on March 26th of the same year at London's prestigious Rainbow Theatre. At long last, you can now feel the electricity crackle in the room and relive Steve Hillage's success with this truly exceptional, once in a lifetime performance. LA Forum 31. 1. 77 is presented in a digipack with a 16 page booklet featuring original images taken at both shows.
