Snapper Records / Madfish SMACD1023 (2014)
Studio recordings… and sadly daevid and Gilli's last Gong album - and what a way to bow out! There is so much to enjoy on this album of many levels, with stunningly good tracks, that I cannot imagine any Gong devotee will be disappointed. The samples sing out for themselves, and I could have easily chosen almost any random minutes from the tracks and the quality would shine through.
Packaging is a digipak affair with an illustrated 28 page booklet which the label call a 'media pack' - no I have no idea either what that is, but there's lots of it and it looks very stylish.
