Notes & details:

- WX7 Salad Dressing: Didier with flute and WX7; sort of "Flute Salad" for modern times. Continues from Vol. 1.
- Oily Way: includes the unlisted "Outer Temple", "Inner Temple" and "Est-ce Que Je Suis".
- Radio Quim: "Radio Gnome Invisible" with a bizarre story about the quim of Margaret Thatcher.
- Donkey: "I Got A Donkey".
- Big City Electricity: aka "Side Windo" in a NYG version with Gary Windo on About Time. Fades out before end.
- French Garden: This song and "Pretty Miss Titty" share the same bridge: "You gotta prove you're a millionare".
- World Peace: aka "Negotiate", "Peace Train", "Blame The Rich". Graham Clark solo and "Blame The Rich" section.
- Can You? You Can: part of theme uses a bit from Didier's "Driving" (
Melodic Destiny) aka "What's Going On".
- Tropical Fish: no "Selene" coda. Fades before end.

Calyx website lists the same shows as shows by Gong rather than Gongmaison.

This tape (as its Volume 1 twin cassette) was never released on LP or cd, so it is still an essential addition for completists.
Didier Malherbe is featured with some of his best sax playing ever.
