Returning second quarter of 2018…

Seminal Gong recording re-mastered from the original tapes.

Gong's contribution to the legendary Glastonbury Fayre LP gloriously digitally re-edited and re-mastered from the original source tapes by Graham Hinton. You've never heard it like this before! Housed in a beautifully designed digi-pak by Peter Hartl complete with daevid's original hand-written liner notes - readable for the first time.

This was many people's vinyl introduction to the band - and what an introduction it is. The perfect distillation of what it was to experience Gong in full flow in the late '60's and early '70's and even more. A Gong recording I never tire of and so little known by younger Gongsters due to the highly collectable nature and high price for a complete original Glastonbury Fayre triple LP set if you can find a copy. Hear it and be transformed.

This is the first CD in a series of definitive archive Gong recordings.
