Sono pronte per Charly Records, sull'onda lunga dei festeggiamenti dei propri quarant'anni di attività, le strepitose riedizioni in cd e vinile di Camembert Electrique, tratte dai nastri audio originali ritrovati e restaurati. Miglior tempismo non poteva esserci. You can kill my body baby, but ya can't kill me...

Absurd, anarchic and powerfully psychedelic, Camembert Electrique is the first proper Gong album. Originally released in France on BYG Actuel (a Charly label) in 1971, then licensed to a young Richard Branson for his fledgling Virgin label in the UK in 1974, this iconic and influential album is still devastatingly fresh-sounding in the 21st century. Weirdness, wisdom, outré rock of the 'highest' order - as you'd expect from the founding-father of acid-rock Daevid Allen.
Camembert Electrique is released worldwide by Charly Records as a strictly limited edition audiophile LP. For the first time ever, the album has been remastered from the recently discovered original BYG master tape and pressed on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl. The LP is packaged in a lavish replica of the original gatefold sleeve, complete with all inserts. To the delight of Gong fans everywhere, the album’s original track listing, correct song titles and timings have been fully restored.
