Curated by Steve Hillage & released with full involvement of original members, legendary psych surrealists GONG are the subjects of this new 2019 Box Set!

Released to coincide with GONG’s 50th Anniversary, the 13 Disc Box Set covers the band’s classic years in a stunning package that includes their seminal first Four Virgin Studio Albums plus Bonus Tracks; Previously Unreleased, Multi-Tracked Full Gigs, the Complete John Peel Sessions from 1973 & 1974; Previously Unreleased Quad Pye & Westlake Mixes of ‘You’ Re-Formatted to 5.1 Surround-Sound.
All the artwork - including rare and previously unseen work – is by the late Daevid Allen.

Under the visionary guidance of Daevid Allen, GONG raised the bar for psychedelic rock in the 1970s. The first three albums GONG recorded for the Virgin label – ‘Flying Teapot’, ‘Angel’s Egg’ & ‘You’ introduced the listener to the invisible mythyological universe of ‘Pot Head Pixies’, ‘Zero The Hero’, ‘The Octave Doctors’ and ‘The Good Witch Yoni’.
Featuring sublime virtuoso guitar from Steve Hillage, GONG’s intoxicating, space-rock inflected compositions such as ‘Radio Gnome Invisible’, ‘The Isle Of Everywhere’, ‘Master Builder’, ‘Inner Temple/Outer Temple’, ‘Shamal’, ‘Flying Teapot’ and ‘Oily Way’ are all an absolute joy to experience, Remastered by original engineer Simon Heyworth and sounding as crisp and inventive as ever!

‘Love From The Planet Gong: The Virgin Years 1973-1975’ brings together GONG’s finest years in an exceptionally well presented Box Set.
