Shamal is the sixth studio album released under the name Gong and was released by Virgin Records on 13 February 1976 The album, produced by Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason was recorded in December 1975. The album was recorded by a unique line-up refereed to later as Shamal-Gong. It is usually regarded as a transitional album between Daevid Allen's incarnation of the band and the Pierre Moerlen-led fusion line-up of the late 1970s. Reviewing the album for the website Sputnikmusic. Shamal is, for the most part, a progressive rock album, half vocal, half instrumental. Its most accessible tune, the opening Wingful of Eyes, had the potential for airplay if only it hadn't been so lengthy. Penned by Mike Howlett, his not-so-great-but-appealing vocal style and lyrics will grow on you, given the opportunity. Bambooji, mostly instrumental, opens with Didier Malherbe's flute, which at times gives this tune an Asian sound. Percussion and flute dominate and yield a Scottish feeling as well. Band Name Gong.
