I agreed. Gong Live Etc. blow my mind back then in 1977. Actually, I remember THE day when I get a mail with that amazing double LP album; I was 14 when I got it.




I remember the day I bought mine as well. (spoke about it before) I have a pretty sullen member of staff at Andys Records (Market store Cambridge) to thank as I wanted to buy some Gong but didn't know which one. He recommended Live ETC and I bought it after a long contemplation of how much money I had. Eventually forked out whatever it was and since then (probably not when it came out probably more like 1979 or 80.) I have loved it more than most. It is delicious and occasionally deliciously funky. Of course, when Steve Hillage left GonG he experimented further with FunK.

Help me I'm falling!

You have to check out Rock Candy Funk Party.
This is a 2013 release that is just a killer jazz rock funk mashup
