40 Year Itch : Salty Solomon Salmon Soul of Man

      How could Gong guitarist Steve Hillage be so lyrically trippy and such a mind-blowing guitarist all at the same time? For his first solo album, Fish Rising, Hillage recruits his Gong bandmates and Canterbury contemporaries for this psonically psublime psychedelic prog rock classic. A must buy!

      The fact that all the songs revolve around fish shouldn't scare anyone away. 

     "The Salmon Song" is a nearly nine minute suite made up of four tunes : Salmon Pool,  Solomon's Atlantis Salmon,  Swimming With the Salmon and King of the Fishes.
