    It is quite a wonderful album to be honest, do not hesitate to pick it up, not for one second. I have loved Gong since the 70's and I have to say Kavus and the boys have breathed some celestial fire and some new life into the classic sound. This is every bit a Gong album, and Daevid and Gilli will be smiling down while they tap their toes and sip at their infinti-tea

    The Watts (Chris Cutler, Tim Hodgkinson, Yumi Hara) finished their RIO set with Isle Of Everywhere with Keith Macksoud and Geoff Leigh guesting, very groovy and fun.

    I blame Wynton, what was the question?

    More trivia - John Greaves played the bass riff from the finale of "Tubular Bells" during the transition from the first to the second half of "Little Red Robin Hood Hit The Road" (the original version of which featured Mike Oldfield on lead guitar). At least, that's what I thought I heard. I almost asked John during our post-gig interview but had other, more pressing questions...

    In 1980 I had the import LP of Flying Teapot on Virgin Records. When played on a Technics turntable through a pair of JBL Tower speakers and a Pioneer receiver it sounded decent. It definitely contained a livingroom sound not unlike the one Norman Smith insisted on for the early Beatles recordings. Then I bought it on CD and it just sounded as if someone added reverb ..and it was quite awful. ..

    My Flying Teapot LP is pristine
    I do not think I'll need another version beyond the one I've made

    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    I totally agree. Gong is in good hands with these guys.

    Yarp... badass record. The tiny missing element is the feminine sound but overall its a real gem! Love it a lot already

    There is a thread specifically for the new Gong album, in case anyone is interested.

    My thoughts exactly!

    Ticket booked to HRH Prog in Sheffield. Finally, a chance to see this lineup live!

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."
    Spoke to Jonny (of GAS) at Hillage gig in Cambridge UK the other night. The 13 CD Universal set will be released end of September apparently. The much larger “esoteric collection” box will then be released by Snapper in a year or two.

    The Hillage gig was amazing by the way!

    Thanks for the update. After a wait of a couple of years for the Universal set, September seems just around the corner. As for the Esoteric box - 'a year or two' means I am not going to get my hopes up too high.
