This is the newly re-mastered edition of the classic 1978 album by Gong member GILLI SMYTH, 'Mother'. Comprised of recordings dating as far back as 1972 (some featuring Gong), 'Mother' is arguably one of the finest albums in the wider Gong family. Described as 'a psychedelic, spacey invocation of motherhood, an examination of gender roles and reincarnation', the album was mostly created in Mallorca by Gilli Smyth's then-partner and Gong member, Daveid Allen, who also played on the album. The album also saw guest appearances from saxophonist Didier Malherbe, bassist Christian Tristch and drummer Pip Pyle among others. Featuring the customary Daevid Allen touch of imaginative edits and sound collages, "Mother" is a joy from beginning to end.
