The single-disc LP version of the concert released by the band’s label, Quality Vinyl Projects.
The Djabe & Steve Hackett 2020 and 2021 tours were postponed to 2022 due Covid crisis. The musicians eagerly awaited to make music together, so on the tour the band was very much together and gave their best performances of all time.
The program of the tour was based on the material of the albums released from the joint recordings in Sardinia, completed with classical compositions by Genesis, Djabe and Steve Hackett. The shows reached Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic.
At the final stop of the tour the band recorded the show. The post-production, as usual, was done by Tamás Barabás and Attila Égerházi. The concert includes several tracks performed live for the first time. Examples include Lake By The Sea from the Back To Sardinia album, the electric version of Ace Of Wands from the Voyage Of The Acolyte album and the Győr Blues. There is a live version of Power Of Wings, which song previously not released on a Djabe & Steve Hackett live albums.
The excellent audio of the concert once again praises the sound engineering work of Tamás Barabás. The analog master tapes used for record cutting were made by Attila Égerházi. The cut was made by the world-famous Rinus Hooning in the Artone studio of Record Industry, attended by Attila Égerházi. You can watch a video of the cutting process here.
