Re-up request: Any chance of a re-post of Gong's 1993 Gas Tape? Really bummed i missed out on that one.

I was dumbfounded to see there had been a recording of the Reading gig. I recall it fondly as they were in fine form, although I don't recall Eno playing!

I would like to ask if there is any chance of this being re-upped. It would be nice to shake up my remaining brain cells.

All the best and congrats on a great blog.
