Magickal sounds from Deya - Limited release.

Please note that BMO 1, 2 and 3 are nearly all gone.

A rehearsal for the 1977 Gong reunion gig at Hippodrome in Paris, recorded at Daevid's 'Bananamoon Observatory' studio in Deya, Majorca. This is an indespensible release - a quite wonderful late-Deya period recording.

The majority of this tape was previously released as the GAS tape 'Deya Daze', although the sound quality is much better. Some of the tracks are longer, notably 'Magick Brother' where only the first couple of minutes were used on the 'Deya Daze' tape.

These CDs are in matt black card covers with silver and white printing drawn and designed by daevid allen himself. The first of a 20CD series, each release a limited pressing of 1000 copies only.
