THE HISTORY & THE MYSTERY contains various rare studio, radio and live tracks performed by Gong and/or it's individual members, recorded between 1964 and 1988. Also includes a history of Gong written in 1989 by Babs Kirk.
Gong includes: Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth.
Additional personnel includes: Soft Machine, Kevin Ayers.
Live and in-studio space-jams, outtakes, demos, basement tapes, and vibrant spoken-word poetry--from random points of Gong's career up to 1989--share real estate on this eclectic, challenging, and beefy 22-track collection. Members of Soft Machine put in appearances, but the record belongs to the sprawling, amorphous, and ever-changing permutations of Daevid Allen's Gong.
