This was a great performance from another fine period of my band in the late '70s. This was my first tour of the US – Gong never played there while I was in the band in the seventies. It wasn't my first visit to the US though – my first visit was in 1976 when I went to record 'L' at Todd Rundgren's studio, near Woodstock, New York. Madison Square Garden in New York is an iconic major venue, so it was a fantastic honor to play there! We were playing to audiences who mostly didn’t know our music too well, so we just let rip and went for it. The band was really firing!!!"

Madison Square Garden 1977 is culled from a crystal clear soundboard recording that captures Hillage at the height of his powers with performances from his second solo album L, including a psychedelic cover of Donovan's Hurdy Gurdy Man plus the epic length Hurdy Gurdy Glissando, Lunar Musick Suite and more. Also included are superb bonus studio tracks that feature exclusive versions of Hillage's recent recording collaborations with keyboard legend Rick Wakeman and world renowned actor William Shatner.

"Todd Rundgren came to the Madison Square Garden show," Hillage remembers, "and I'm pretty sure he joined our sound engineer at the mixing desk and added some extra Harmonizer drum effects to 'It's All Too Much'. It certainly sounds like that on the recording! I was waiting for a good moment to release this US gig recording in the US on an American label. Cleopatra, with whom I’ve had a long relationship, asked me if I had any good available archive material and it immediately struck me that this moment had arrived
