Space Ritual.

You could have added:
Grobschnitt - Solar Music Live
Eloy - live (though not a favorite of mine)

Has to be Gong i love the live etc album .  being a huge Hawkwind fan was hard voting against  them but much as like Space Ritual  i just like Live Etc More (this must be the case as i still listen to Live Etc now and again but cant remember last time i gave Space Ritual a listen )

Ooh! How could you do this to me!  Space Ritual is just fantastic and has been one of my favourite albums for years now.  Live Herald is another.  But I agree with Hawkwise as Live etc (the first Gong Album I ever bought so I am a bit biased) gets played more than the other two, and if I had it on CD rather than Vinyl only it would probably live in my CD player.  If you see a vinyl copy then buy it!  It encompasses Gong through several lineups and yet it still seems to hang together. (I wish the band would get it together with the record co and get a decent version released. ) 
 
Just need to add Floating Anarchy 77 to the list.

Or if you prefer Daevid's earlier lunacy?

And the best acid rock album of all time ... Floating Anarchy! ... which I would have voted for right away ... other wise the original Space Ritual wins ... Live Etc was Gong on its way down and is a nice album but not great ... and in my book compared to the original albums is not as good, or interesting.
 
... Welcome magick brothers, and mystic sisters ... not even Space Ritual is that cool and groovy, man!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now try finding your own mirror/art! www.pedrosena.com
