The 'lost' Gong album - a psychedelic classic.

Recorded by the 'Camembert Electrique' band in early Summer 1971 with the same engineer (Gilles Salle) and Venux de Luxe. Gong provide music as only they can for Dashiell Hedayat's psych classic - wonderful stuff.

This is a triple fold-out didgi-pak edition with an eight page French lyric booklet.

And as it says on the back of the LP cover: "Warning - This record must be played as loud as possible, must be heard as stoned as impossible and thank you everybody."

Tracks:
  1. Eh, Mushroom, Will you mush my room?
  2. Chrysler
  3. Fille de L'ombre
  4. Long Song for Zelda
  5. Cielo Drive/17
