Format: Audio CD
A classic masterpiece of fundamental progressive rock from the '70's badly in need of remastering (plus bonus tracks if available-are you listening Repertoire Records?). The orignial vinyl release far surpasses this poor CD edition.

I didn't even know you could still get this -well done amazon. I bought the double vinyl some years ago, and its still worth a listen. It showcases the talent and musicality that gong have (despite the silliness!) and there is some nice sax work from Bloomdido. The classics like "Isle of everywhere" are as good as ever.

released in 1977 but recorded in various venues between 1973-75 this version of gong contains the classic lineup of daevid allen, tim blake and steve hillage and while angel's egg is probably their finest work, this is a supreme example of space rock while providing an excellant overview of the daevid allen era. daevid allens's compositions seem to be underated in their ability to convey an otherworldly sense of mystery and joy of discovery, and this album realizes the full spectrum of his skill as a bandleader. the entire band shines, with the transcendant and beautiful sax of didier malherbe,the incredible psychedelic atmosphere created by tim blake's synth work (a pioneer in the field who doesn't seem to be given enough credit for creating the spacey sounds of space rock), the understated and sophisticated drumwork of pierre moerlen(rip), but most impressive is probably hillage, whose sonic explorations on guitar electrify the music with a possessed fervor and established his reputation as a supreme guitarist in the field. simply wonderful. reccomended for all gong fans and space rock fans.

A compilation of concerts from 73-75 and one studio outtake
on 16 January 2006 - Published on Amazon.com
This album was not released until 1977 and is a great compilation of spirited and dynamic live performances recorded during the 1973-1975 timeframe. The live recordings were taken from concerts at (1) Salle Bataclan Paris, (2) the Edinburgh Festival, (3) Club Arc-en-Ciel (Roanne), (4) BBC Studios, and (5) the Marquee Club, while one track is actually a studio outtake from the You sessions (Where have all the flowers gone?). Fortunately, the live performances do not fall prey to the problems that plague live albums - there are no lengthy (and seemingly endless) solos and incredibly dull "note-for-note" reproductions of the studio pieces. Rather, the pieces are very lively and feature excellent group improvisations that expand the studio works far beyond their original configurations. Although the performances by all members are outstanding, I feel compelled to single out drummer Pierre Moerlen who simply blazes - his playing on this album is truly something to behold. For those folks that love the Daevid Allen lineup, I think it is worth indicating that the music is played by three different lineups, which are identified in the liner notes as lineups A, B, and C. Lineup A (Tracks 1-6 and 11) includes Allen, Smyth, Malherbe, Howlett, Hillage, Blake, and Moerlen; Lineup B (Tracks 7-10) is the same, with the exception of the replacement of Pierre Moerlen with Rob Tate, and the addition of Di Stewart (vocals/percussion); and Lineup C (Tracks 12-15) features Hillage, Howlett, Lemoine, Bauer, Moerlen, Malherbe, and Giraudy (the Shamal lineup). With respect to the different lineups, I missed Pierre's superb drumming on the Lineup B performances, and I have to say that although the players are excellent, Lineup C did not do much for me - I really missed Tim Blake's atmospheric, bubbling synthesizer work on pieces such as Isle of Everywhere and Master Builder (from You, 1974). It's not that keyboardist Patrice Lemoine is bad - it's just that instrumentation that includes only electric organ (and a virtually buried mini-moog) really does not lend that spacey effect that made the You album so amazing. Guitarist Steve Hillage however, puts in a great performance and Pierre Moerlen simply rips. One last thing - the liner notes indicate that the piece entitled "Ooby-Scooby-Doomsday or the D-Day DJs got the DDT Blues" was not included on the CD due to time limitations. This piece does, however, turn up on the remastered version of Angels Egg. All in all, I have to say that this is a good live document that more or less captures the essence of 73-75 period Gong. In spite of the fact that there may be better live recordings of Gong out there, this is certainly readily available to most people and is pretty darn cheap. Recommended.

Gong - 'Live Etc.' (Caroline) 4 1/2 stars
on 5 August 2005 - Published on Amazon.com
'Live Etc' is an absolute must-have compilation for all true Gong fans. It features a total of fifteen live tracks of tunes that originally appeared on the band's key albums 'Camembert Electrique', 'Flying Teapot', 'Angel's Egg' and 'You'. Taken from unreleased live soundboard tapes (I assume) from shows between 1973-75. Absolute best cut here is "Where Have All The Flowers Gone?" along with "6/8 Tune", that are the disc's only unreleased material. Other cosmic gems include "Dynamite / I Am Your Animal", "Isle Of Everywhere", "Oily Way" and "Master Builder". Duration is 78:33. Heard they wanted to add the 16th cut that was originally on the 2-lp record, but the CD simply wouldn't hold it. Talk about wanting to give your fans their money's worth. Long live the mother Gong ship! Highly recommended.
