|Gotta start with the master, Manuel Göttsching. This suite comes from the second Ashra album in 1977, which is a solo release.

|Steve Hillage may best be known for his work in Gong, but he had a lengthy solo career of which "Fish Rising" (1975) is probably the closest to Gong in style (and has the most Gong members playing).

Achim Reichel (and Machines) produced several albums of cosmic psychedelia heavily featuring echo guitar before moving into a highly lucrative pop career. In 2017 he finally revisited his origins and released a comprehensive 10 CD box set of all the A.R. & Machines material and a ton of bonus material. The disc featured here includes "pure" echo guitar music, recorded in practice.

|Schickert is the other "big three" of German echo guitarists (LOL). His material is darker, more "industrial". He recorded two classic albums in the 70s, this one (1979) and Samtvogel (1972). A few years ago an archival release came out of his session with Klaus Schulze, which is one of my favorite albums period.

|We close with the French artist Michel Moulinié and his only album, from 1978. This is the only album this week that has not yet been reissued on CD. Musea seems to be back in the game now, so maybe they'll get on it? ...|
