"Ready, set, Go!...."
Love From the Planet Gong: The Virgin Years 1973-7512CD + DVD + exclusive, limited poster/sticker package.
We are currently able to process, properly pack and send 50-60 Box-sets per day. We have 600+ to do - so doing the maths you can see all the orders will not be sent out before the end of next week. Your patience is deeply appreciated. We will e-mail you when your order is sent.
Sets ordered from the Planet Gong come with a lithographical print of the 1970's full colour Gong Mandala promo poster on heavyweight 250gsm paper, ideal for framing, a beautiful re-print of Daevid's Flying Teapot Spotters Scroll, originally available from Virgin in 1973, and 3 stickers. The posters come rolled in a mailing tube attached to the Box-set carton.
70‰ of the audio is previously unreleased, all is superb. The box was curated by Steve Hillage and the live multitracks were mixed by Mike Howlett. All the recordings have been mastered from the original master tapes by original Gong engineer Simon Heyworth who has done a stunning job - a real labour of love. There are so many highlights one of which is THE most glorious digitisation of 'Flying Teapot', direct from the original master tapes for the first time - and from which the band will receive royalties on a Teapot CD release for the first time!
The advance copy of the box set I've had for a few days now is really something. Well printed, easy to read, right music on the right CDs and all sounding fantastic - It's job done. Phew! I'll never like CDs in cardboard slots though - who does? There was nothing I could do to change that. I've put my discs in poly-lined paper sleeves. I suggest you do the same.
