Blue Angel (Strawbs album)

Angel's Egg (album)

Angel's Egg is an album by Gong, recorded and originally released in 1973.

It was recorded using the Manor Mobile at Pavillon du Hay, France, and mixed at The Manor, Oxfordshire, England. The album was produced by Gong under the direction of Giorgio Gomelsky.

Angel's Egg is the second of Gong's Radio Gnome Trilogy of albums, following The Flying Teapot and preceding You. The Trilogy forms a central part of the Gong mythology.

The CD version released by Charly Records contains an extra track: "Ooby-Scooby Doomsday Or The D-day DJ's Got The D.D.T. Blues", that ends with a parody of the male voice glissando on Pink Floyd's "Echoes", starting with "Ahhhh" and ending with "Chooo", mimicking a sneeze. The track was originally released on the Live Etc. album but since it did not fit on the CD release, it was included on this album instead.
