Gong - Shamal mp3 download

Текст песни: Deep - deep within you In a secret place Deep - deep within you Everything you want to know lies.

Shamal is the sixth studio album released under the name Gong and was released by Virgin Records on 13 February 1976 The album, produced by Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason was recorded in December 1975. There are only six tracks here, but each one seems to explore a different tone and aspect of musical experimentation

Referred to as a transitional album between the Pot Head Pixie-era and the Pierre Moerlen-led fusion-era, Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth, Steve Hillage, and Tim Blake had left (Hillage does appear as a guest, but basically left to pursue his solo career, as Fish Rising already came out before Shamal). Didier Malherbe, Mike Howlett, Pierre Moerlen, and Mireille Bauer remain, and brought in keyboardist Patrice Lemoine, who played for Catherine Ribeiro + Alpes.

Shamal is first Gong album without Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth and almost without Steve Hillage. Recorded right after You ( and after the end of great Gong Trilogy), it is change in direction. Instead of Allen's Gong psychedelic Canterbury sound you will find there some transitional music.

The album is also very "busy". Tightly packed into a mere 40 minutes is a selection of nine different musicians offering their talented performances with a multitide of different instruments. Not that different to Daevid Allen's future vision for Gong, of course, but Shamal was definitely where this idea of multi-dimensional instrumentation started to form into one of the most prominent aspects of Gong's musicianship.

Retrieved 20 June 2018. 1. Album – Album, is a collection of audio recordings issued as a single item on CD, record, audio tape, or another medium. Albums of recorded music were developed in the early 20th century, first as books of individual 78rpm records, vinyl LPs are still issued, though in the 21st century album sales have mostly focused on compact disc and MP3 formats. The audio cassette was a format used from the late 1970s through to the 1990s alongside vinyl, an album may be recorded in a recording studio, in a concert venue, at home, in the field, or a mix of places.

Studio Album, released in 1976. Shamal" is a GREAT Gong's album. The instruments are perfectly balanced to produce impressive jazzy progressive rock pieces. The omnipresent percussion (xylophone, vibraphone, marimba, glockenspiel and tubular bells) form magic, pleasant and charming melodies. The music is embellished by many flute, saxophone, violin and lead vocals parts. Steve Hillage provides some electric guitars on a few tracks. There are some good keyboards: piano, organ and moog.

Shamal is, for the most part, a progressive rock album, half vocal, half instrumental. Penned by Mike Howlett, his ealing vocal style and lyrics will grow on you, given the opportunity. Bambooji," mostly instrumental, opens with Didier Malherbe's flute, which at times gives this tune an Asian sound. Percussion and flute dominate and yield a Scottish feeling as well.

A not so sore thumb in the early Gong discography. This features its most mainstream prog entries that are mild curiosities when taken as a whole. There's some good creative rock on here that equally shows where they've been and where they are going.
