4 stars "Night Works" was lifted from an old FM radio broadcast and really should be considered GILA's second album. In a similar fashion to the stunning debut album "Free Electric Sound", this album pulls out all the underground Krautrock vibes and is a truely great little album. Although the folks at Garden Of Delight have done a masterful job in restoring and presenting this snippet of Krautrock history, my only issue is the fair production quality (obviously the source tapes were not perfect). But having said, the music is still superb and I love the FLOYD like extended jams and spaciness of this album. "The Gila Symphony" is my favourite track which clocks in at around 14 mins and represents a great extended space jam not unlike early FLOYD. GILA was the early proving grounds for guitarist Conny Veit who would later play with others including POPOL VUH and GURU GURU.
