Original 1969 BYG album facsimile edition. Newly mastered to vinyl from original BYG tapes. Lacquers cut by Alchemy Mastering at AIR STUDIOS. Exclusive liner notes by author, journalist and BYG-authority Kevin Le Gendre. Having been part of the fabled 'Canterbury scene' along with luminaries such as Robert Wyatt and Pip Pyle the Australian guitarist-vocalist-songwriter Daevid Allen formed Gong with Welsh vocalist Gilli Smyth in Paris at the end of the '60s as France was in state of ferment. Magick Brother introduced Gong as one of the oddities of the pyschedelic and space rock age. The nucleus of Allen, Smyth and Malherbe and additional players was able to create a musical vocabulary very much of its own all the while searching for essential metaphysical truths. The band also made strong political statements, that comes through loud and clear on this re-mastered version of Gong's debut album.
