[Steve Hillage K.C. 77] Shared as torrent on Dime (unsigned info).
No SBE's - True lossless source.

Date and venue confirmed by Jeff Lynne Song Database.
Dated as 1977-01-?? but Rick Chafen, longtime Daevid Allen and GAS collaborator wrote this on Gong Forum: "Jay Plumb (...) just sent me a scan of his ticket for Hillage & ELO. The ticket says the event was Feb 4, 1977, a Friday night".
In my opinion this is not an audience recording but a slightly degraded stereo soundboard.
