Brian Auger's Oblivion Express — Live Oblivion Vol. 2

50th Anniversary Remastered Edition 2LP

Recorded live at The Whisky A Go-Go, Hollywood

Live albums are often a "hit or miss" affair but Live Oblivion 1 & 2 buck that trend, Recorded across two nights in 1974 at the Hollywood venue The Whisky A Go-Go. The group were finishing off a huge U.S. tour that had roared down the East Coast then across the Midwest and by the time they hit L.A., as Brian recalls "we were all absolutely performing at our height. So I decided that I really needed to record the band live at that point."

Utilizing the Wally Heider Mobile Truck, the scene was set for one of the greatest jazz-fusion live recordings to be made.

Released to mark the 50th Anniversary of their recording and release. This is the first ever vinyl reissue since the original releases in the 1970s. Remastered from the original "Wally Heider Mobile" analog tapes by Bill Smith at United Archiving, Los Angeles. Faithful reproductions of the original album sleeves by Jaffa at The Unknown Contains the original tracks later sampled by Mos Def, DJ Mitsu & Crimeapple.
