Gong 'You' LP
Part 3 of the Radio Gnome Invisible Trilogy with 2015 remaster now on Special Edition “Invisible” Vinyl.
“this is their holy grail, uncarved block and philosopher’s stone rolled into one” - Classic Rock
Gong’s quintessential trilogy comprised of the albums ‘Flying Teapot’, ‘Angel’s
Egg’ and ‘You’ are reissued worldwide by BYG / Charly Records, remastered in
2015 from the original tapes by Nick Robbins at Soundmastering Studios.
Recorded in late 1973, You is the final instalment of the group’s Radio Gnome
Invisible trilogy and was the last Gong album made before the departures
of both its founder member and driving force Daevid Allen and its inspired
guitarist Steve Hillage, who was soon to embark on his highly successful solo
career. ‘You’ is undoubtedly the most sophisticated and best produced Gong
album, its highlights including “Master Builder”, a gentle Buddhist chant which
developed into a frantic live favourite, and the extended, synthesizer-driven “A
Sprinkling Of Clouds”.
This classic Gong trilogy is released on mid-price digipak CDs featuring
remastered audio and 8-page booklets. The current line-up, which features
Kavus Torabi (Knifeworld) following the passing of founder Daevid Allen, is
enjoying the success and worldwide tour of 2016 album ‘Rejoice! I’m Dead!’
and have revealed the first of their 2019 festival appearances at the UK’s HRH
