Well, thats the way I'm reading it... I can't imagine they'd include stuff that had already just been released in the Virgin set. I can't wait though - really looking forward to both boxes.
    The way I read it to!

    Snapper/Madfish is basically Charly.

    Not exactly, Snapper is the mother company. They own K Scope, Peaceville, Charly and Madfish.
    Different labels but the same team running them.

    Another Jonny update / clarification ... (I absolutely can't wait for these boxes!).

    "There will be Zero overlap between Universal book/box and Big Gong box. My aim is that they absolutely compliment each other - sort of super enhanced 'public' Gong 73-75 - Universal, then a deeper, immersive Gong - the big box - all years from the beginning to, well now. Still mulling over what should be covered in the big box got a great pencilled in list already - but there is so much to look at and hear, for example we have 3 Paragong gigs, or at least hefty sections of 3 Paragong gigs to examine. Anyway no more idle musing and speculation from me I have a Universal book deadline to meet or we ain't getting nuffink out in June."

    Latest info from Jonny .... Here are the legitimate extended Gong family releases for the first half of 2019:

    - The first release of 2019 will be out in a few days - The Invisible Opera Co. of Tibet live at Kozfest 2017. You can pre-order it direct from them right now https://www.brianabbott.info/shop and from Planet Gong as soon as it is released.

    - Next up will Mother Gong's Robot Woman Trilogy - which will be in stock at the end of the month

    - Gong's new album, 'The Universe Also Collapses', probably preceded by a radio edit of one of the tracks as an internet single, will be out in May. [ This afternoon I was sent a link by Kavus to download the new Gong album 'The Universe Also Collapses'. As I said to him - they had just one job, to make an album that surpassed 'Rejoice I'm Dead'.... f##k me but I think they've done that in spades.... I don't want to write words about it right now, I just want to play it to everybody! Stupendous 20.37 opening track, 'Forever Re-occurring', and I'm singing and singing and singing the last song, 'The Elemental'. "Remember there is only now! Remember there is only now! Remember there is only now! Remember!" "...by George I think they've got it..." Course they have - they're Gong. ]

    - Then Universal's 'Love From The Planet Gong' extravaganza.

    It is possible something else may make it out in the first 6 months of the year, but it's only at the discussion stage right now, but if it does happen it could happen very quickly and be rather quirkily wonderful.

    It would be great if they put these out individually - or more specifically the first one. It's been a long time since I heard any of this but I recall that there are diminishing returns over the trilogy.

    By the way does anyone know why the two versions of Mother Gong's Tree In Fish are so different...? Or whether it's right that the 1994 release on Tapestry would be the better one to get (as it has much longer running time)?
