The concert recorded at Hammersmith Odeon in London on 26th March 1977, was one of the stand-outs from that memorable tour and it has been mixed by Stephen W. Tayler and is presented here on vinyl for the very first time. The recording reveals the improvisational side of Be Bop Deluxe, particularly on pieces such as “Shine” and “Blazing Apostles” which made each Be Bop Deluxe concert unique. Cut at Abbey Road Studios and pressed on white vinyl, this special Record Store Day limited edition release is a fitting tribute to a fine live band and the creative vision of Bill Nelson.
