2 stars This is Indeed a Mixed Bag....Some of you will probably hate it, others find intresting stuff on it, I like some of it, the "Gong" songs here are good, but youll find them on other Gong live albums, The Solo stuff is so-so, Daevid Allen`s So What is actually the same song as Miles Davis recorded with John Coltrane on "A Kind Of Blue" , BUT WITH Daevid Allen`s Vocals on top of it, I Like it very much! Other Highlights are Pierre Moerlen`s Gong - Second Wind Live, but that one can be found on "Full Circle" Some Nice flute moments with Dider Malhebre`s solo songs.... This One is ONLY for Folks From The Planet Gong, and The Pot head Pixies, YOU others should seek out The Radio Gnome Invisible Trilogy (Flying teapot, Angels Egg and You)
