The inspiring total madness of early Gong.

Many original fans' 1971 introduction to the Planet Gong. Want to know why they have become such a long-lived cult band? Then try this spacey, surreal, (dadaist even) collection of prime European psychedelia, there's nothing like it. In just about everybody's top ten list of psychedelic albums.
