Fish Rising by Steve Hillage


Fish Rising is the debut solo album by English guitarist Steve Hillage, recorded and released in 1975.

The album was recorded just prior to Hillage's departure from the band Gong, and many of the players on this album are from that band: Bassist Mike Howlett, drummer Pierre Moerlen, keyboardist Tim Blake and saxophonist Didier Malherbe.

In 2007, Virgin issued a re-mastered version with two bonus tracks. "Pentagrammaspin" had originally appeared on the Virgin V sampler album in 1975, and the "power trio" backing version of "Aftaglid" consisted of Hillage, Howlett and Moerlen.
