Double CD budget compilation… Zero 2 Infinity plus Live 2 Infinitea.

It used to be three or four years before a record company did the budget compilation thing with a latest release, but Snapper have gone for it now. So here's a cheap way of getting all the music from the last two Gong albums. But as always there's a price to pay. The cover (nothing to do with the band) is a bit dodgy, you lose all daevid's liner notes, lyrics and drawings from the original issues and you'll have to guess who plays what as there are no credits to speak of at all. There are however some new liner notes with an amusing tale by one of their staff of daevid's visit to Snapper's offices.
