**Very small repress in replica textured sleeve! This can be considered as close to the original as one can be, few copies available.** "Here's another Gong album no one seems to know about, as this is basically Gong plus poet/musician Dashiell Hedayat (otherwise known as Melmoth). Evidently the lyrical content (especially on the suite "Eh, Mushroom will you mush my room?") is hallucinogen-related, and if you are an early David Allen-period Gong fan, you are sure to love this one as it is classic 1971 Gong, replete with Malherbe sax solos and killer gliss guitar. Hedayat proves to be an adequate guitarist (the album was too early for Hillage) and keyboard player, and the long 20-minute track here is an incredible space flight. Released on the legendary Shandar label, this album was extremely groundbreaking, as parts of it resemble the Kosmische music label such as Sergius Golowin's Lord Krishna Von Goloka, yet it was years before. The best comparison would be to Timothy Leary and Ash Ra Tempel's Seven Up with its delerious lyrics (the opener sounds very similar to the "Downtown" part of Seven Up) as it is an incredible parallel to the album."
