Andy Bole

The Glorious Event


Spacey yet precise, laid back yet focused, really enjoyable many stringed thing-rich release. Andy Bole really is a secret Gong Family treasure who deserves to be far more widely known. I really can't imagine any hearty Gong/Steve Hillage inclined regular visitor to this web-site not enjoying this offering, it is a quality album. And although you might hard pushed to spot it, because of the quality of the recording, the CD notes - "all tracks recorded live at Glorious Events including Glastonbury, Kozmik Ken's and Gong Uncon". Jewel-case, 2 page colour booklet with a cover by Mandala creator, Jo Thirlwind
