GONG - Gong est morte, vive Gong [1977]

Gong est Mort, Vive Gong is a live album by the psychedelic rock group Gong. It is a double LP recorded 28 May 1977 at the Hippodrome, Paris, France, and released by Tapioca Records, France in 1977.[2]

The concert was a partial reunion of the version of the "Angel's Egg"-era group with the return of Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth, and Steve Hillage who had left Gong in 1974 and 1975, respectively, and were not part of the then-current Gong which would eventually change its name to Pierre Moerlen's Gong. Gong appeared as the headlining act in a 24-hour marathon festival; a poster advertising the event can be seen in the photo collage included with a later album, Gong Live Etc. During the concert, all the music from four entire albums was performed: Camembert Electrique, and the three albums of the Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy. Some songs are presented in extended arrangements, therefore the album documents less than half of the entire performance.
