Asia - 'Aura'

Not the prog-supergroup Wetton/Howe/Palmer lineup but this is with 'other' singer John Payne joining ex-Buggle & Yes part-timer Geoff Downes to produce a more AOR-style sound of high-class, melodic Rock.
This album also features guest-spots from Steve Howe, Tony Levin & Ian Crichton (Saga)

Asia - The Last Time

Hawkwind - In Search Of Space

Below written nearly fifty years ago - we haven't learned...

"I think about the things that we should have done before
And the way things are going to end is about to fall
We took the wrong step years ago
We took the wrong step years ago
We took the wrong step years ago
Look around and see the warnings close at hand
Already weeds are writing their scriptures in the sand
We took the wrong step years ago
We took the wrong step years ago
We took the wrong step years ago
The morning Sun is rising casting rays across the land
Already nature's calling take heed of the warning
We took the wrong step years ago
We took the wrong step years ago
We took the wrong step years ago"

But still hope...

"The golden age of future comes
That which was dreamed in the past
Minds rich in wisdom to the last
Where freedom reigns on minds at peace
We are the Children of the Sun
And this our inheritance
No longer chaos and confusion
But love and laughter, song and dance"

I have never actually heard the live LP. Is your copy on Hambla HB 20404 (the original Italian release) or Klimt MJJ341 (a French re-Release?) I might risk a few quid on it but maybe I will buy the other copy incase the sound is better.

A band I missed first time around but I really enjoy Celia Humphry's voice. I only have the Sunbeam Re release copies of the two studio ablums "On the Shore" and "Garden of Jane Delawney" Original copies are rare and very pricey.

They say Uriah Heep are finally back on form but I heard this latest one and its the same commercial shoite they have been spewing for decades.
My Heep collectro ends with "Magician's Birfday".
