Audiophile vinyl pressing of Gong-ambient classic with bonus 7".

Wonderful glissando guitar, synth, spacewhisper, lyre-bird feast originally released on CD in 1989. An ambient album of tremendous beauty and mystery, a must for all lovers of daevid's glissando guitar. Like walking through a tropical rain forest accompanied being sung to by plant devas. Alpha Rainbow Meditation is a Harry Williamson piece featuring his 26 string Angel Guitar.

It's pretty safe to presume this is a one-off pressing, probably of 500, but perhaps 1000.
