A virtual prog/space-rock summit with daevid allen, Graham Clark, Michael Clare and many others

Don Falcone's Spirits Burning, on heavy double vinyl. Don's master plan throws up intriguing combinations of musical spirit, ones which it would be impossible organise in the physical world. You could simply never gather all the folk (almost 40 of them on this release!) into one place at one time.

Like it says on the 'tin'…"Space rock remedies… prepared by Don Falcone, with daevid allen (Gong), Michael Moorcock, Pete Pavli (High Tide), Adrian Shaw (Bevis Frond), Larry Thrasher (Psychic TV), and Bridget Wishart (Hawkwind), plus members of Dark Sun, Melting Euphoria, Mushroom, Quarkspace, Secret Saucer, ST 37, University of Errors, Weird Biscuit Teatime, and more…

Single sleeve cover with illustrated colour inner sleeves full of lyrics and info.
