3 stars This is a collection of live gong tracks and covers a large period of time. Most of this Lp is essential to any gong fan and some of it is likely to appeal to most fans of good music. As always Gongs silly middle class and pretentious view of what hippies should be is to the front and its very hard to like the extremely silly lyrics. However Gongs music is often brilliant and very complex jazz influenced rock. Sadly the last side is post allen blake gong, as these are the only cuts from the You LP on this release it is a disappointment. Saying that the version master builder is exciting and showcases Hillages guitar perfectly.

The tracks are a real mixture Flying Teapot suffers from a poor vocal.."radio o bgnome" Sung by some annoying female far to loudly in the mix. Which is shame because this material comes from the BBC and has the best sound quality on the disc. I have not heard the CD but the LP is fairly mixed in sound quality.
