Ultimate Garden Of Delight reissue of this classic, early German prog album from 1971, sometimes also known as ‘Free Electric Sound’ and originally released on BASF. Pretty much universally agreed upon as a must-own classic! The large 20-page booklet in LP size contains a long interview with keyboardist Fritz Scheyhing, the last surviving Gila member, looking back at the band's history, and features a number of rediscovered photographs from Gila's early period. Comes in gatefold cover and with poster. Limited to 2000 hand-numbered copies.

"Here's a long time krautrock classic. Gila impress us with a dynamic, intense and imaginative communication between spacey rock improvisations, lengthy psych guitar solos accompanied by luminous electric organ chords. "Agression" is a cosmic krautrock jamming, strictly instrumental (as the rest of the album), dominated by subtle and technical guitar / organ combinations. "Kollaps" is a dark and creepy instrumental piece with moody organ parts and weird, plaintive noises. "Kontact" starts with a variation of different sound collages to finally turn into an acoustic, folk guitar trip with an obvious "eastern" flavour. The track directly carries on "Kollektivitt" for a full-on guitar / organ jam with some folky, mellow accents. "Individualitat" is a strong hypnotic-tribal jam for percussions and guitar experimentations. A serious, intricate mixture between free rock, spacey-psych effects and discreet eastern influences. A must for fans of Agitation Free and highly recommended for the others."-ProgArchives
