4 stars This album is a personal favourite of mine, as it marks the period of transition from the psychedelic space-rock outfit "Daevid Allen Gong" to the jazz fusion lineup of "Pierre Moerlen's Gong". This is a lineup of most of my favourite Gong and Steve Hillage tracks and it is my personal favourite Gong lineup, with Hillage on the lead guitar.

The album is not without its imperfections, but the raw punchiness really adds some diversity to the Gong discography. As this is sandwiched between the release of my 2 favourite gong albums "You" and "Shamal", it is the perfect blend of the psychedelic flavours of "You" and the hippy jazz fusion vibes of "Shamal".

One of the best live albums in my collection. I highly recommend!
