Gong... such a great band. I loved both Allen and Moerlen's Gong. I have listed only the albums I own or have heard. What is your favorite? For me it's either Camembert (because of Pip on drums),You (Hillage in his prime), or Gazuese! beause of Holdsworth... he made that album shine. 

How about you?

I like plenty of Gong albums, but the Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy has meant the most to me.   I vote for Gong's You. That has been a really special album to me.

Thought someone might say T. Rex's "Bang a Gong (Get it on)". My favourite gong was Gong Li (A Chinese actress who was in various of my favourite films).

I love You, the album I mean. This is the first track I heard of Gong.

Angel's Egg, Gazeuse! and Expresso II are the ones I listened to the most from this list.
I hope I can make some time to relisten to them a bit and then vote. Big smile

Gazeuse! hits the right spot for me, but I'm also quite fond of Angel's Egg, You and Downwind

While I also love Camembert Electrique and Radio Gnome Trilogy (there's never enough love) with space and frivolous saxophone melodies and I like later jazz-rock Gezause etc...

I'll say perversly that my favourite Gong is Gong in disguise Evil Smile

on Dashiell Hedayat's 1971 album "Obsolete" there're:
Gilli Smyth, Christian Titsch, Pip Pyle, Didier Malherbe and Daevid Allen...
- big part of Gong Family, so it's like it was Gong.

Obsolete 1971 full album:
very "outsider" album
after "Cielo Drive" nothing will be the same (of course if we follow the instructions written on the album) Wink

It's a nice poll theme and I vote for Gazeuse! out of these. My favourite would actually have been Shamal (you probably left that out just to give me something to complain Wink), just about, and I also love much of Pierre Moerlen's Gong's material, particularly Downwind.

I actually prefer ANgel's Egg but You is a close second. I do love Gazeuse and Shamal as well.

Voted: Dinner

Not really, I'm rather fond of the Pierre Moerlen 'Straight Edge' Gong franchise album Gazeuse!

"You" for me, ahem. 

I always found Gong irritating. Good musicianship, but......
