Gong - Shamal (expanded / remastered) 2 x CDs

SKU 15-UMG 7714153
“Gong’s 4th album for Virgin Records from 1975 has been remastered from the original Virgin masters for the very first time by Simon Heyworth at Super Audio Mastering and expanded with a second disc containing a previously unreleased concert recorded live at the London Marquee in September 1975 plus 3 previously unreleased edits.“

This was the album that the band released after founder Daevid Allen split. Most of the gang are still here (Mike Howlett-bass, Didier Malherbe-saxes/flutes, Pierre Moerlen-drums/percussion + Mirelle Bauer-mallet percussion & Patrice Lemoine-keyboards and guest guitarist Steve Hillage), but the sound has changed radically towards a fusion sound with a bit of world music (long before that was trendy). After this, the band becomes even more percussion heavy and fusion-oriented as Pierre Moerlin takes full leadership reigns.
