Yes, agreed with you. Typo is little bit different. So, means there was 2 different press with orange centre. Anyway, this one can be registered under other entry as a repress.

I can't see no difference between this one and the 1992 reissue, exept the mould SID code: IFPI 121E (invisible on the 1992 CD).

Essentially Gong in all but name, with a little help from French poet Dashielle Hedayat. Basically, imagine a more tripped out Gong with spoken poetry (in French), and this is what you get. You still get plenty of glissando guitar work from Daevid Allen, sax from Didier Malherbe, bass from Christian Tritsch, and drums from Pip Pyle. Even Gilli Smyth makes her appearance here. I am a bit surprised this was not released on BYG/Actuel, given that's where Gong was recording, instead it was on a small label, Shandar (maybe because it was Dashiell's album and not Gong's). It was reissued in 1974 given Gong's growing recognition (thanks to their deal with Virgin Records) and likely to draw the Gong connection. I really wished I knew what Dashiell was saying, because of the stoned nature of the album. This album is really essential to all Daevid Allen-era Gong fans.
