PORTUGUÊS:
Mais do que uma banda, um coletivo, Gong foi um dos maiores expoentes do rock psicodélico dos anos 70 e foi por maior parte do tempo liderado pelo australiano Daevid Allen - também co-fundador do Soft Machine - junto com sua esposa Gilli Smith. Com o passar do tempo, à medida que a banda foi crescendo, ela também se tornou uma comunidade hippie vivendo no interior da França que contou com uma série de músicos que mais tarde se tornaram renomados, tais como Steve Hillage, Kevin Ayers, Pierre Moelen e Tim Blake. A banda atingiu seu ápice artístico durante a trilogia Radio Gnome Invisible, que contempla os álbuns 'Flying Teapot', 'Angel's Egg' e 'You'.

Este álbum é um coletânea de sessões gravadas para serem transmitidas durante o programa de John Peel, um dos mais renomados radialistas britânicos, na BBC Radio 1. São sessões gravadas entre 1971 e 1974 e, assim como os álbuns, amostras grátis em relação à atmosfera que a banda era capaz de criar em seus shows. Mas, de qualquer forma, é essencial a qualquer fã da banda e também é uma ótima introdução para quem ainda não está familiarizado com o som deles.


ENGLISH:
More than a band, a collective, Gong was one of the greatest exponents of psychedelic rock in the 1970s and during most of its existent it was led by Australian guitarrist Daevid Allen- also cofounder of Soft Machine - alongside his wife Gilli Smith. As the time went by, as long as the band kept growing, it also became a hippie community living in the countryside of France which was held with a number of later-renowned musicians, such as Steve Hillage, Kevin Ayers, Pierre Moelen, and Tim Blake. The band reached its artistic peak during their Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy, represented by 'Flying Teapot', 'Angel's Egg' and 'You' albums.

This album is a compilation of sessions recorded to be broadcast during John Peel's programme - one of the most renowned British DJs - on BBC Radio 1. They are sessions recorded between 1971 and 1974 and, as well as the albums, they were sort of free samples in comparison to the atmosphere the band was capable to create during their live performances. But otherwise, it is essential for any Gong fan and it is also a great introduction for who's still unfamiliar with their sound.

    Another one that I'd like to hear has been deleted by Netkups. I'm not having much luck here!! Any chance of accepting a third request for a re-up?
    I'm asking a lot, I know and I understand if you can't.
    Thanks again for all the wonderful you've provided otherwise. :-)
