Daevid is at the origin of one of the most fantastic French groups : Gong.
On this album, his partner Gilli Smyth singing and space whisper (spatial effects distorting her voice), sign all the titles, but listening reveals a strong influence coming form Daevid Allen's compositions.
Didier Malherbe is there as an accompanist but his influence will not stop growing in the sound of the group.
BYG tradition : two jazzmen, Narada Burton Greene and Barre Philips, will pass in the studios to join the group.
