Gong - Magick Brother Magick Brother
Prog Used - LP AFF4 Affinity
1977 UK Laminated Cover First Pressing. “In 1970, The World Got Its First Taste Of The Original Pothead Pixie, Daevid Allen's Gong, As Magick Brother Was Released In France On The BYG Label. Allen's Wife, Gilli Smyth, Penned All The Tunes On The Album. Leaning A Little Toward The Pop End Of The Spectrum, Magick Brother Is A Fairly Light Album, Devoid Of The Blatant Psychedelic/Hippie Qualities Which Shine Through So Brilliantly On The Later Camembert Electrique. Smyth's "Space Whispering" Makes Its Debut On The Opening Track, Though The Album Is Not As Spacy As It Is Ethereal. "Gong Song" Is A Highlight, With Lyrics Describing A Pothead Pixie Who Came Down From The Planet Gong To Sing His Green Song -- The Roots Of The Gong Myth. Allen's Guitar Sound Is A Bit Flat And Hollow Throughout The Project, Dynamics Taking A Back Seat In Most Of These Recordings. He Relies On Distortion And Various Guitar Augmentations, But This All Works Quite Well In The Context Of The Collective Sound. Much Of The Vocal Harmonizing On The Album Is Typical Of Many '60s Pop Troupes And Sounds Fairly Dated Today. Didier Malherbe's Sax And Flute Playing Spices Up This Mostly Pop-Oriented Prog Rock Outing, Helping To Make This A Cut Above The Radio Norm.” David Ross Smith, AMG.... more details

Gong - Shamal Shamal
Prog Used - LP V 2046 Virgin
Archival Quality Copy Of This 1975 UK Gatefold Original. “Between Daevid Allen's Departure From The Band And Pierre Moerlen's Official Takeover Of The Band, There Is Shamal. This Transitional Album Contains None Of The Allen-Inspired Psychedelia, But Also Very Little Of Moerlen's Jazz Influence. Shamal Is, For The Most Part, A Progressive Rock Album, Half Vocal, Half Instrumental. Its Most Accessible Tune, The Opening "Wingful Of Eyes," Had The Potential For Airplay If Only It Hadn't Been So Lengthy. Penned By Mike Howlett, His Not-So-Great-But-Appealing Vocal Style And Lyrics Will Grow On You, Given The Opportunity. "Bambooji," Mostly Instrumental, Opens With Didier Malherbe's Flute, Which At Times Gives This Tune An Asian Sound. Percussion And Flute Dominate And Yield A Scottish Feeling As Well. "Mandrake" Is The Soft, Laid-Back Piece On The Album, Followed By The Closing Title Cut, A Slight Foreshadowing Of The Sound Pierre Moerlen And Company Assumed On The Next Several Albums. Moerlen, An Outstanding, Classically Trained Drummer/Percussionist, Along With Jorge Pinchevsky On Violin Color This Piece With A Mahavishnu Orchestra Hue, Although It's Still Distinctly Gong.” David Ross Smith, All Music Guide.... more details

Gong - Camembert Electrique Camembert Electrique
Prog Used - LP K22P-355 Charly
1982 Japanese Pressing With Obi. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “This Is A Classic, The Epitome Of The Band's Early Daevid Allen Phase With Ph.P.'S (Pothead Pixies) In Full, Blazing Glory. In Its Infancy, Gong Was A Unique Prog Rock Band That Branched Out In All Directions At Once While Most Other Prog Bands Chose Simply One Path Or Another. Camembert Electrique Is A Testament To That. The Band's Eclectic "Electric Cheese" Rock Is A Mixture Of Psychedelic Rock, Spacy Atmospherics And Lyrics, And Doses Of Jazz Often Presented With A Pop Sensibility, Yet Always Intense. From The First Cut On Camembert, You Are Transported To Planet Gong Via The Voice Of A "Radio Gnome" Who Drops In Intermittently To Remind You You're Not In Kansas Anymore. Daevid Allen Leads The Band Through Several Compositions Musically (Not Lyrically) Reminiscent Of, And Possibly Influenced By, Early King Crimson -- A Hard, Raw-Edged Sound Propelled By A Strong Guitar-Sax-Percussion Combo. Drummer Pip Pyle Played On Only A Few Gong Sessions; He Is A Major Figure Here, As Is Saxophonist Didier Malherbe. Both Are Up Front On The Wailing Progressive Rocker "You Can't Kill Me," Which Also Features Guitarist Allen In Top Form. Allen's Declarative "I've Bin Stone Before," The First Part Of An Inventive Three-Song Medley, Is Of Particular Interest; Introductory Church Organ And Avant-Garde Sax Make This Another Unique Gong Experience. But The Real Gem On Camembert Is "Tropical Fish: Selene." This Jazzy Composition Is The Most Involving And Intricate Piece On The Recording. The Band Moves Tightly Through Several Progressive Movements And Gilli Smyth Scores With Her Trademark "Space Whispering." Camembert Electrique Remains Undated After Over 40 Years And Hovers "Strong And Steamin'" Over Most Of The Gong Catalog.” David Ross Smith, AMG.... more details
