4 stars Similar to the GonG live. Unless you are a real Gnome one of the two is sufficient.I , as a Gnome , of course have both. Another live one is the Sheffield 74 but again unless you are a real Gnome..... The madness of those shows are not well transcripted on wax , but if you saw the band in the last seven years , you can take all of those live one and imagine

Review by Warthur
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars The core lineup of the Radio Gnome years had a reunion in Paris in 1977, the highlights of which are presented in Gong Est Mort? Vive Gong! Say what you like about the band: they certainly weren't overprotective of their name, allowing various spin-offs and factions to use it over the years - for instance, this reunion took place right when the Pierre Moerlen-led lineup hadn't yet officially changed their name to Pierre Morelen's Gong, but Moerlen, Howlett and Malherbe have no qualms about abandoning their fusion experiments in order to bring back the old pothead pixies magic.

Whilst in principle the album is pretty interesting, presenting as it does extended versions of Gong classics from Camembert Electrique to You with a lineup showing a high degree of technical polish and practice, unfortunately the recording quality of the album is really quite poor - not quite on bootleg levels, but poor enough that the finer details of the songs are obscured and the results sadly fall short of the band's usual standards. Not the lineup's fault - this would have been a great gig to watch, but sadly the tapes just aren't up to much. Oh well. One to get if you really, really can't get enough Radio Gnome trilogy material.

2 stars This is the live recording of the first Gong reunion. As is the case for many of the English contingent who travailed to Paris that day to see Gong play, I had to leave before the Gong set as the gig had over run its time slot and we had no choice but to go. So when this came out in the UK we were d ... (read more)

5 stars Gong back on fine form after those 2 abortion of an albums Shamal and Gazeuse. Daevid Allen is Gong,not Steve Hillage or Pierre Moerlen.

4 stars This is a recording from an historical event. On May 14th 1977 there was a Gong festival in the Hippodrome in Paris. 14 hours of Gong in several line-ups and several related bands. Among the bands appearing most notably one named Strontium 90, consisting of Andy Summers (lead guitar), Sting (voca ... (read more)

4 stars This album was recorded at a reunion two years after Daevid Allen left the band. This is a beautifully recorded set (although mastered a bit on the quiet side). The material from 'You' is particularly well-represented, especially compared with the 'Live Etc' versions, which seem a bit at sea wit ... (read more)

5 stars Well recorded and performed, this represents the classic Gong lineup pretty much at their peak. Many of the classic pieces from their early repertoire are here, making this not just the best live example of the band, but a good introduction as well. A must have for Gong fans, and a good addition to ... (read more)
