The flying pot head pixies got my attention again. While going through the albums on the attic I found this little gem. Never gave it much attention thinking that it was a Gong Compilation album…
But it is actually a 1970 german re-release of the original 1969 album of Daevid Allen and Gilly Smyth with, among others, Didier Malherbe.
It has become quite an collectable item nowadays and i think also because of the nice album cover and artwork of Daevid Allen (see photo’s below).
The top right corner of the frontcover has a cut-out star with the letters “Supergroups” above.
