Mother Gong - 'The Best Of' (Cleopatra)
Mike Reed | USA | 04/18/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Mother Gong is a branch of Gong,featuring none other than the space whispering goddess Gilli Smyth.It also seems that a one(make that ANOTHER)Robert Calvert is the sax player for the band.This isn't the same Calvert that was known for being Hawkwind's resident poet.Other Gongsters make an appearance or two on this 21 track compilation.Daevid Allen guests on the tripping "Magenta Part One" and Steve Hillage shows up on "Machine Song".My prefered cuts are "Time Is A Hurrying Dog",the soothing "Weather","Trees","Wapu" and the semi-spacey "Quantum Impro".Also,"Zen" shows the ensemble's true colors.According to the discography,Mother Gong has released fifteen lp's.I didn't realize they had that much material available.Great cosmic sounds with some really fantastic cover art."

"The music is so relaxed special the saxophone, its nice to listen. But the "singing" and "declamation" makes the music itchy. It disturbs the mood you get in when you listen to the music.Price number is Lament from the "Tree in fish" album. Only three tracks from this album. It deserves more."
