Gong The Very Best Of Gong CD Canterbury
The best of the hippy legends' '70s recordings for the BYG label. 
 
 
Formed in 1969 by Daevid Allen, one of the founder members of Soft Machine, Gong established itself as one of the most innovative and experimental progressive rock groups of the Seventies.
 
Mixing rock, jazz and psychedelia with elements of mysticism and hippie-based surrealism, all laced with a far-out sense of humour, the group's music, along with its communal lifestyle and fascination with things Eastern, epitomised the hippy ideal of the day.
 
This collection contains 19 highlights from their '70s recordings for the cult BYG Records label and features tracks from the celebrated 'Radio Gnome Invisible' trilogy of albums, their first two albums, 'Magick Brother' and 'Camembert Electrique', plus a sole cut from the hippy-punk Allen comeback 'Floating Anarchy'. 
 
An ideal introduction to the world of Gong, their sense of humour, druggy philosophy and above all their wonderful ability as musicians and pioneers.
