"this is their holy grail, uncarved block and philosopher's stone rolled into one" Classic Rock (UK)
Gongs quintessential trilogy comprised of the albums Flying Teapot, Angels Egg and You are reissued worldwide by BYG / Charly Records, remastered in 2015 from the original tapes by Nick Robbins at Soundmastering Studios.
Angel's Egg is not your usual progressive rock album. Very quirky, with many, mostly brief compositions, the album is a tad less spacy than Flying Teapot, with just a few psychedelic-inspired lyrics, and is very technically adept. This eclectic composition travels through several movements and time changes and comes across as a perpetually progressing piece. The album sees the classic Gong line-up in full swing with primo Daevid Allen vocals and lyrics, and Steve Hillage's first full inclusion to the band bearing fruit with musical quality akin to his solo work.
This classic Gong trilogy is released on 180g heavyweight audiophile "invisible" vinyl featuring remastered audio in gatefold packaging and 16-page booklets. The current line-up, which features Kavus Torabi (Knifeworld) following the passing of founder Daevid Allen, is enjoying the success and worldwide tour of 2016 album Rejoice! I'm Dead! and have revealed the first of their 2019 festival appearances at the UK's HRH Prog.
