From Calyx website:
Following Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth's decision to take a break, newcomer Steve Hillage is
asked to lead an alternate line-up of the band, christened ParaGong, including veteran Didier
Malherbe, and other recent recruit Tim Blake; for a while, ex-Moving Gelatine Plates bassist
Didier Thibault (who had been recommended by Gomelsky to replace Moze in Magma a few months
before) joins the band; setlist includes Kevin Ayers' "Why Are We Sleeping" and an early version
of "I Never Glid Before".

Much hiss (no dolby) but the music is worth it. No dates and venues.

The sound quality is rather fine to my ears, except it suddenly degenerates in the encores. I preferred not to include the final track as it had become totally unlistenable at that point; in contrast "Mama's Boogie" still sounds fine.

edited notes-
Arthur was back in the UK and touring after many years away, bringing with him a bunch of Texan musicians who of course had nothing to do with the original Crazy World. This gig was the day before the London Marquee show that was taped and issued on CD as Order From Chaos, hence the very similar set list. Great set though!!
