  • Gila's first album from 1971, featuring a Mellotron, recorded under the direction of Dieter Dierks. The re-edition contains plenty of as yet unreleased photographs, a long review by Fritz Scheyhing etc.
  • Limited to 2000 hand-numbered copies.

A much sought-after classic featuring a Mellotron – the first pressing is meanwhile traded at about € 400 in mint condition. It is the first LP by Gila, neatly recorded in Dieter Dierks' studio in Stommeln in the summer of 1971. The album is largely instrumental and excellent. The 20-page booklet in LP size contains a long report of keyboarder Fritz Scheyhing, the last surviving Gila member, looking back at the band's history, and a number of rediscovered photographs from Gila's early period. Comes in gatefold cover and with poster.
