Digitally remastered and expanded three CD version. This legendary live album was released in July 1977 and would prove to be the band's most successful album, peaking at #10 in the UK charts. The album was issued at a time of growing commercial success for the band and followed on the heels of two highly acclaimed studio albums in thirteen months, Sunburst Finish and Modern Music, both of which reached the Top 20 of the UK album charts. Live! In the Air Age would be the band's only live record and was recorded on a series of dates in the UK in February and March 1977 on the Rolling Stones mobile unit with John Leckie, who had engineered co-produced the band's previous two albums, supervising the location recordings. This set features the original album, newly remastered from the original master tapes, and restores the correct running order of the original LP release and has three bonus tracks drawn from a BBC Radio One John Peel Show session from January 1977. Importantly, this 3 CD edition includes the entire concert recorded at Hammersmith Odeon in London on 26th March 1977, one of the stand-out concerts from that memorable tour, which has been newly mixed by Stephen W. Tayler and is presented here 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. This release includes an illustrated booklet with many photographs and an essay of recollections by Bill Nelson. This expanded and remastered edition boxed of Live! In The Air Age is a fitting tribute to a fine live band and the creative vision of Bill Nelson.
