Gong - 25th Birthday Party, London, The Forum 2 x CDs (special)
"This is a great Gong reunion album. It was released in 1995 from a progressive rock festival in 1994. Most of the "original" members from the Radio Gnome Invisible days are here. The only major missing persons are Steve Hillage and Pierre Moerlen (who was a late comer anyway). This double CD is about 110 minutes long. It is bascially the Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy played in order, starting out with few songs the prequel Camenbert Electric. But, it isn't a stale reproduction of the ablums. The songs have been reworked so it is now a much more cohesive piece. The group plays with a lot of energy and the music sounds fresh. The insturmentals are played in new ways. The only downside is that Hillage is certainly missed in a few spots. Overall, this live CD is better than any of the individual studio albums."
