Limited 12CD + 1DVD box-set + limited Gong Mandala 1975 Promo poster re-print, Flying Teapot Spotters Scroll and 2 stickers.
(Sorry, unavailable. Possibly will be re-pressed.)
THE PRE-ORDER PHASE OF THIS RELEASE HAS NOW ENDED - although we are still catching up with some stragglers and some mislaid pre-orders.
The Poster/Sticker offer is still in place until we run out of stock, but we now have to pay for them and the postal tubes - this is reflected in a slight increase in price.
One time pressing of 3000 12CD + 1DVD deluxe box set with 64 page hardback illustrated book in a slipcase, 2 illustrated tri-fold CD wallets and a 32 page lyric insert for you to disassemble and construct all manner of lyric booklets.
Included in this release from the Planet Gong Bazaar are 2 exclusive posters and 3 stickers. The Posters and stickers are lithographically printed to a high quality using oil based fade resistant inks (unlike digital water-based inks). The Mandala poster is printed on heavyweight 250gsm paper ideal for framing. Posters are sent rolled in a cardboard tube mailer attached to the Box-set carton at flat cost postage.
Over 70‰ of rare previously unreleased recordings. Curated by Steve Hillage, live multitracks mixed by Mike Howlett, mastered from the original master tapes by original Gong engineer Simon Heyworth.
