Gong 1971-74 BBC radio sessions.

Double LP, 180 gram collectors vinyl of early and 'classic' Gong in session for the BBC. Side A features the band in 1971 with Kevin Ayers as a member. Sides B dates from 1973 when the band was promoting the Flying Teapot LP, and sides C and D come from mid 1974. Wonderful playing and atmospherics throughout and for once some good liner notes!
