Love From Planet Gong: The Virgin Years 1973-1975

12CD+DVD box set • Remastered • Surround sound • LIve performances

Curated by Steve Hillage and released with the full involvement of original members, legendary psychedelic surrealists Gong are the subject of a new box set with the release of Love From Planet Gong: The Virgin Years 1973-75.

This 13-disc package includes the band's first four Virgin studio albums, with bonus tracks; previously unreleased, multi-tracked full gigs, the complete John Peel Sessions from 1973 and 1974; previously unreleased quad Pye and Westlake mixes of 1974's You (re-formatted to 5.1 surround-sound), and artwork including rare and previously unseen work by the late Daevid Allen.

Audio is re-mastered by original engineer Simon Heyworth and while live recordings are mixed by Gong Bassist Mike Howlett. This set comes with a 64-page illustrated lyric booklet that includes Angel’s Egg’s famously quirky and informative ‘Blue Book’ and a new companion to Flying Teapot ‘Green Book’.

Love From The Planet Gong: The Virgin Years 1973-75 will be released on 27 September 2019 via Universal Music. Please note: these will ship for SDE on Monday 30th September.
