I bought this LP shortly after it came out for the presence of Dean and Wheeler, Gallivan being unknown to me. It took a few listens but I did eventually 'get it'. Somewhere along the way I lost/sold/misplaced the album so it will be great to hear it again. Many thanks.

loved 'origin of man' reunion of dean/gallivan. that introduced me to gallivan! i've been hoping to hear more of their reported earlier collab! so, a dream come true! wheeler being involved is certainly a cherry on top! thanks so much.

WOW! YOU HAVE ILLEGALLY UPLOADED A COPYRIGHTED RECORDING THAT CURRENTLY BELONGS TO HAZEL MILLER'S OGUN RECORDS! NOW YOU CAN GO LOOK INTO THE MIRROR AND HAVE A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP! CONGRATULATIONS. MICHAEL KING

Hi Brian and everybody.
Could you re-up this album as a flac version?
I can say that I'm not agree with the strong words that Michael King wrote. I respected his work deeply and was very sad to hear his death around one year ago, Michael was a truly great producer and all the material that he have reissued on his own reel label or on cuneiform, or gonzo are absolutely great. I can suggest all the readers to take a look into his reissues, you won't be disappointed. But he was not right to write this because this album is no more available at Ogun, hazel Miller have no more lp copies for sale and she haven't reissued it on cd or on download. it seems that she doesn't have a program of reissues, mostly concentrating on producing new material by Moholo or Tippett. So by posting this album you help this music keeping alive, it is more helpful than destroying in my opinion.

hi brian
i was very excited to see this link as i love gallivan [his two records with charles austin are stone cold classics] and the youtube of one of the tracks from this album is superb but to get a copy is 30 quid so wanted to make sure the rest of the record is as good as the youtube available track but when i dowenload this i cannot get it to play at all. it cmes down as an RAR does not appear to be any scans. any idea waht i am doing wrong?!

i've clicked anonymous but my name is nick.

nick
