Limited 12 CD + NTSC/Region 0 DVD box. Curated by Steve Hillage and released with the full involvement of original members, legendary psychedelic surrealists Gong are the subject of a box set with the release of Love From Planet Gong: The Virgin Years 1973-75. Released to coincide with Gong's 50th Anniversary, the set covers the band's classic years in a stunning package that includes: their seminal first four Virgin studio albums plus bonus tracks; previously unreleased, multi-tracked full gigs, the complete John Peel Sessions from 1973 and 1974; previously unreleased quad Pye and Westlake mixes of You re-formatted to 5.1 surround-sound, and artwork including rare and previously unseen work by the late Daevid Allen. Under the visionary guidance of Daevid Allen, Gong raised the bar for psychedelic rock in the 1970s. The first three albums Gong recorded for the Virgin label - Flying Teapot, Angel's Egg and You - introduced the listener to the invisible mythological universe of Pot Head Pixies, Zero The Hero, The Octave Doctors and The Good Witch Yoni. Featuring sublime virtuoso guitar from Steve Hillage, Gong's intoxicating, space-rock inflected compositions such as 'Radio Gnome Invisible', 'The Isle Of Everywhere', 'Master Builder', 'Inner Temple/Outer Temple', 'Shamal', 'Flying Teapot' and 'Oily Way' are all an absolute joy to experience, remastered by original engineer Simon Heyworth and sounding as crisp and inventive as ever. Live recordings mixed by Gong Bassist Mike Howlett. Love From The Planet Gong: The Virgin Years 1973-75 brings together Gong's finest years in an exceptionally presented box set.
