Best of Mother Gong
Blueprint BP271CD || £10.64 USD  EUR  JPY  + p+p +tax

A perfect 'best of, a perfect place to start.

Tracks have been gathered from all Mother Gong's albums and put together into an almost perfect running order with utmost care by Harry Williamson and Gilli Smyth. It's also the first time that any tracks from the early 80's Robot Women trilogy of Lps have made it onto CD. It inspires you to seek out the original albums, if you can find them, to hear more. You can't really ask for more of a "Best of". Complete with a potted history of the band and full discography.
