Dagli archivi di Steve Hillage esce un concerto newyorkese del 1977, Madison Square Garden 1977, tenuto all'epoca di Motivation Radio. Forse un assaggio del mega-box annunciato per il 2016 con libro illustrato, dossier informativo, ventidue cd e una messe di materiali ufficiali, inediti o rivisitati prodotti tra il 1969 e il 1991. Lo pubblica Purple Pyramid: "Madison Square Garden in New York is a major venue - ricorda Hillage - it was a fantastic honour 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.” He adds: “Todd Rundgren came to the show 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.”
